Talk about a great start for a Wednesday! Vince hit me up and gave the early warning that Kevin Smith [who has seen ROTS in a private screening] has finally posted a review for Star Wars Revenge of the Sith online. So what did he think of the film? He f@*cking loved it!

Positive Revenge of the Sith Review

Not only is this a cool review from Kevin Smith, but it is also an immensely positive review for Star Wars Revenge of the Sith. Now, I know that Kevin Smith is a big Star Wars fan and can be blinded by the hype like all big fans, but it's Kevin Smith! Smith even points out that he knows of the complaints for the first two films and says Revenge of the Sith completely makes up for them. Oh yeah, and no silly comedy this time either.

Don't believe? Here is a snippet from the Sith review [below]:

"Revenge of the Sith" is, quite simply, fucking awesome. This is the "Star Wars" prequel the haters have been bitching for since "Menace" came out, and if they don't cop to that when they finally see it, they're lying. As dark as "Empire" was, this movie goes a thousand times darker - from the triggering of Order 66 (which has all the Shock Troopers turning on the Jedi Knights they've been fighting beside throughout the Clone Wars and gunning them down), to the jaw-dropping Anakin/Obi Wan fight on Mustafar (where - after cutting his legs and arm off, Ben leaves Skywalker burning alive on the shores of a lava river, with Anakin spitting venomous sentiments at his departing mentor), this flick is so satisfyingly tragic, you'll think you're watching "Othello" or "Hamlet".

Perfect example of how dark shit gets: remember the Younglings - the kid Jedis in training from "Clones"? As a result of Order 66, when Anakin invades the Jedi Temple with an army of Clone Troopers, he enters the Council room to find a gaggle of said younglings hiding behind the seats. They see Anakin and emerge, asking "What should we do, Master Anakin?" The query's met with a stone-cold Anakin firing up his lightsaber. The next time you see the kids, Yoda's sifting through their corpses on the floor.

Yes, it's just that dark - and rightfully so. This is the birth of Darth Vader we're talking about. The only comic moments in the flick are given to R2D2, and while good, they're all pretty few and far between; the order of the day is dark, dark, dark.
