Revenge of the Sith Hayden Christenson just may have pulled it off this final time.
It is time for early Star Wars Revenge of the Sith reviews! I have compiled a list of early reviews from some of the publishers that were allowed to see the early screening of Episode III last night. And what did they think?

They loved it! [if they pushed aside some woody acting/dialogue]

Early Reveiws for Revenge of the Sith

Below is a list of early reviews for Star Wars Revenge of the Sith that you can check out on the net. While I am sure there are others, these were some of the best to pop up today:

"Episode III" could have used more polishing in the dramatic department, but for the first time in this prequel trilogy the dialogue doesn't sound as if it was written poorly on the back of a napkin. Lucas is known for his inept ability with dialogue and if there's any truth that celebrated playwright Tom Stoppard fine-tuned the screenplay it shows. Unlike the classic trilogy, this prequel series is more about spectacle than story and what we see on the screen is truly spectacular. The environments and exotic locales of alien planets are more believable that the previous films as well as the computer generated characters.

I don't want to give the impression that I was disappointed with "Episode III"; it has the greatest dramatic depth of the last four movies. We all know what's going to happen, just unsure of how it will happen and the film succeeds in making you feel uncomfortable as events unfold. Still as a "Star Wars" fan I wanted more from this entire prequel trilogy. The story that Lucas has spread out over three films could have been told in one and the exposition has been so drawn out that it’s exhausting to try and keep up with it or even care. I did not want every question about this era in "Star Wars" history answered but there is much more I wanted to see. Missing are the fate of Obi-Wan's mentor Qui-Gon Jinn (Liam Neeson) who is mentioned by Yoda to be reaching out from the afterlife, but it’s never shown.

The final episode of George Lucas' cinematic epic "Star Wars" ends the six-movie series on such a high note that one feels like yelling out, "Rewind!" Yes, rewind through more than 13 hours of bravery, treachery, new worlds, odd creatures and human frailty. The first two episodes of Lucas' second trilogy -- "The Phantom Menace" (1999) and "Attack of the Clones" (2002) -- caused more than a few fans of the original trilogy to wonder whether this prequel was worth it. The answer is a qualified yes. It did take a lot of weighty exposition, stiffly played scenes and less-than-magical creatures to get to "Star Wars: Episode III -- Revenge of the Sith." But what a ride Lucas and Company have in store!

It’s so beautifully laid out. It’s fucking immaculate. This is literally how you rule the universe. It is to be admired. And learnt from. Cuz as Padme says, “This is how Democracy ends, with Thunderous Applause.” Exactly. Distractions, a clear and concise innocent front and cutthroat evil behind the scenes.

REVENGE OF THE SITH is a masterpiece. The final piece of the puzzle Lucas first presented me at age 6. 27 years later, the Jigsaw is complete and damn if it isn't just damn near the most tragically cool thing I’ve ever seen put to film. We won’t see another like this. This is it.

We’ll see enormous sci-fantasy told, with more focus and even grander visions in our lifetime… but we’ll never care as much about a story like this one. For our generation, Star Wars is our mythology. The big story we lived to see told the first time. For those of you that were kids in lines in 1977 through to the coming weeks… I have to say, it has been an absolute fucking honor to do this with y’all.

How you like that for early Star Wars Revenge of the Sith reviews! However, I do suggest checking out each article in full. While every author stated that he or she did like Revenge of the Sith, they do point out a couple drawbacks in the film.
