Greivous takes a blow to the gut.
Here are the problems with early reviews for Star Wars Revenge of the Sith [or all Star
Wars films in general]-- the movies have such a loyalty and grandeur
that it is hard to put them down. While I believe this may be the case for
some of the early reviews you have read for Revenge of the Sith,
surely not all.
And now here is a review from some one who did NOT like
the first two films in the new Star Wars trilogy.
Another Positive Review for Revenge of the Sith
The reviewer's name is Alexandra DuPont, a frequent poster over at AintitCool.
Here is a little bit of what she had to say about Revenge of the Sith
and all of the new Star Wars films:
Q. Give us a four-word review [for Revenge of the Sith].
A. Bloody hell! It's good!
Ok, ok. But what did she think about the first two films?
Those of you waiting in line for Star Wars: Episode I: The Phantom Menace are, in my opinion, setting yourselves up for a grave disappointment.
Attack of the Clones
If these last two Star Wars movies have taught me anything, it's that all my prior rantings about Star Wars needing to be mythologically and thematically coherent and profound no longer apply.

She then goes into further detail on her thoughts
about Revenge of the Sith:
Q. So you liked "Revenge of the Sith"?
A. I may have even loved it a little.
The bottom line is that "Sith" has a discipline - an aggressive discipline - missing from Episodes I and II. It is just repeatedly not-embarrassing at nearly every turn. Most of the flabby expository walks to landing pads have been neatly snipped. Important things are said with images instead of words. The special effects are better, but draw less attention to themselves.
That's it for the latest review. To read the review
