It is time for the latest dose of early Star Wars Revenge of the Sith reviews. As we get closer to the release date of Sith the reviews coming in have been a little bit more mixed. The two reviews below are both positive, but mixed.

Revenge of the Sith Early Reviews

With the release date of Star Wars Revenge of the Sith quickly approaching and my anxieties about the film on the rise, it does not help to know that the latest reviews seem to pose more issues about Sith than the last ones did. But hey, at least they are positive and both do admit that Revenge of the Sith is better than Phantom and Clones.

On that note, here are the latest early reviews for Revenge of the Sith:

Premiere Magazine
Here’s how it pans out: The Phantom Menace was the crushingly, suffocatingly lame one, Attack of the Clones was the scattershot, perverse mixed-bag one, and Sith is—finally—the good one. Almost, in parts, good enough to make one want to go back to the first two just to see . . . oh, OK, maybe not. A lot of the problems—some would call them abominations—that plagued those first two turn up in force for this Third Episode—ham-fisted dialogue that even master thespian Jackson can’t sell, some shockingly somnambulent acting (Portman looks so bored it’s as if she’s finding it a chore to breathe); you know, that sort of thing. But Lucas has so many plot threads to tie up here that he has no choice but to conduct the 130-minute proceedings con molto brio...

Only the most diehard of Star Wars' fans would ever claim that the first two prequels were anything but disappointments that failed to live up to their legendary sequels made over twenty years ago. And while this, the third episode chronologically, but the final episode to be produced, still fails to equal any of the installments in the original trilogy, it stands far above episodes I and II. It manages this by ditching most of the clunky love story, intricate political machinations, and annoying characters that dominated the earlier installments and puts the focus back where it belongs, i.e. onto the action and the core group of characters.

If you read the first reviews posted for Revenge of the Sith and now these, you can see how much more mixed these reviews are. Instead of calling Revenge of the Sith immaculate, we now hear that it is 'better.'
