Synopsis


Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith
George Lucas draws the Star Wars film series to a close with this dark sci-fi adventure which sets the stage for the events of the first film and brings the saga full circle. After a fierce battle in which Obi-Wan (Ewan McGregor) and Anakin (Hayden Christensen) join Republic forces to help free Chancellor Palpatine (Ian McDiarmid) from the evil Count Dooku (Christopher Lee) and his minions, Anakin is drawn into Palpatine's confidence. Palpatine has designs on expanding his rule, and with this in mind he plants seeds of doubt in Anakin's mind about the strength and wisdom of the Jedis. Anakin is already in a quandary about how to reveal to others the news of his secret marriage to Padmé Amidala (Natalie Portman) now that she is pregnant, and visions which foretell her death in childbirth weigh heavy on his mind. As Anakin finds himself used by both the Jedis and the Republic for their own purposes -- particularly after Mace Windu (Samuel L. Jackson) expresses his distrust of the young Jedi -- he turns more and more to the Force for help, but begins to succumb to the temptations of its dark side. Many of the Star Wars series regulars returned for Star Wars: Episode III -- Revenge of the Sith, including Frank Oz as the voice of Yoda, Anthony Daniels as C-3PO, Kenny Baker as R2-D2, and Peter Mayhew as Chewbacca. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    Excellent steelbook release for Star Wars

    Being one of those that grew up on the classic trilogy, the prequels were definite step down. They were still fun, and brought at least some of the nostalgic feeling back, despite taking forever to release the full prequel trilogy. This last entry in that prequel series was representative of both the best and worst of the whole thing. We got the completely awesome vantage point of watching Anakin truly devolve into a blathering mess, that became Darth Vader. We also got a great extra villain in General Grievous (as pictured on the cover). We had a few somewhat incomplete explanations as to how everything went from this film to the next in the sequence, which is better completed by watching the animated Clone Wars and Rebels series, but still a significant gap nonetheless. With regard to this steelbook, regardless of the quality of the film, relative to the original Star Wars films; This is a great release. The packaging is beautiful, the features aren't missing anything that you really need unless you are a Jedi Master of nerdiness :D Overall, for those who would like to own the film, this is an excellent way to do it, if you want to have a cool, collectible set. It even matches my Episode VII steelbook.

    Its an old saying but it does hold true. George Lucas certainly saved the best for the last installment in the prequel trilogy. While this new trilogy got off to a shaky start, it definitely gained momentum and exploded on to the screen with Revenge of the Sith. There was so much energy in this film, so much emotion, and so much intensity, most people will say the entire prequel trilogy was well worth watching to see it play out. This movie was absolutely fantastic. Every Star Wars wanted this movie, and they got it. But knowing how it would turn out, didn't change a viewer wanting to see Anakin prevail and over throw the Sith influence. A good movie such as this, draws the audience in and makes us sympathize with the characters. We all wish for the best but know that it will all go horribly wrong. Yet, when all is done, we all still have Hope.

    Just take it for what it is I guess. I remember waiting, dying actually to see Clones. And half way through putting my hands over my eyes in shame. " I can't breathe without you Pademe". See what I mean. That was so uncomfortable to listen too I almost died laughing, and that was the last thing I wanted going in. But fear not GL claims this one is diffrent and at least he acknowledged that Clones was corny and that he did that on purpose. Thank god because I thought he didn't know. But this is the deal... If this was a football game, after the minuses of Clones, GL is looking at under 4 minutes remaining in the fourth quarter and he is now down by two touchdowns. He is going to have to pull out all the stops and start scoring to have any shot at redemption. The clock is ticking

    This was my favorite movie of the prequels. It had some redeemable things about it. I feel like if the earlier movies kept this tone, then things would have been better for the trilogy, but that's just my opinion. As for this purchase, it's a pretty average single disc set. This is a stripped down and basic feature presentation. There are no special feaures on this disc, just commentary. The movie itself is in great HD quality. The steel book is one of my favorites though. While General Grievous wasn't a big deal as a villan, he is kind of mysterious and menacing looking. If you're are a fan of steel books and willing to sacrifice special features, this is for you. Personally, i prefer the steel books as opposed to the trilogy boxsets.

    Being a Star Wars fan & collector for 28 years now I made a point of purchasing this DVD the moment it was released. Always great to see the film in the wide screen format. Good extras on it with ! Exception that just ruined the package for me. I always like to view the extras & behind the scenes, bloopers, deleted scenes I always enjoy to watch. I was VERY disappointed George let fans down with this DVD & did NOT put bloopers on it Instead we got a video of Yoda break dancing. It was funny but IS NOT AN ACCEPTABLE SUBSTITUTION FOR THE BLOOPERS. Well, we do have to keep in mind George just LOVES to release the films OVER & OVER AGAIN so maybe on the 2cd DVD release he will correct this error/omission. Rating is for the movie in whole-not just the DVD package.

    Let me start out by saying I own all 6 films already on blu ray and dvd and vhs but when I was in bestbuy a few weeks ago and saw these I had to buy these also each one has a different character on the front as well as the original movie poster on the back obvisoly this one has General Grievous on the front cover which I think is totally awesome there made really well and look great I would highly recommend this as a gift for someone or just for yourself to add to your own collection there also limited edition so I would get them while I still could I kno the bestbuy that's near where I live at was sold out of episode 1, 3, and 6 so I definitely would go ahead and grab them.

    The Best of the Prequel Trilogy

    MY favorite of the prequel trilogy! No point in discussing the movie. It's been around 10+ years now and it is great to see George Lucas complete his saga. FOX did a pretty superb job with the first 6 Star Wars movies in Steelbook. Each Steelbook is a glossy finish with debossed titles, 1-Disc, has commentaries as the only special feature, inside artwork, and the back cover shows the theatrical poster of the respective Star Wars movie. I already owned the "Complete Saga" box set, but these were too beautiful to pass up. I had to own them all. They also look real nice next to the new Episode VII: The Force Awakens steelbook (Only available at Best Buy)! Get these while you can! :D
