Three years into the Clone Wars, Obi-Wan pursues a new threat, while Anakin is lured by Chancellor Palpatine into a sinister plot to rule the galaxy.

The sequel to The Phantom Menace (1999) and Attack of the Clones (2002), it is the sixth film in the Star Wars film series, the final installment in the Star Wars prequel trilogy, and third chronological chapter of the "Skywalker Saga".

The film received mostly positive reviews from critics, with most regarding it as the best film of the trilogy; some criticism was reserved for Lucas's screenplay and Christensen's performance.


Jan (Age 11) - ★★★★1/2

"The thing I like about the movie; how Anakin turns to the dark side, how things started to get a little tense as the movie goes, I also like how Obi Wan plays his Master Jedi role, how he talks with Anakin and with all the other actors. Star Wars 3 is actually a little better than Star Wars 1 (The Phantom Menace), and better than Star Wars 2 (Attack Of The Clones). Darth Vader is also well done, it was heartbreaking how Anakin turned to the dark side, because of Lord Sidius. So I would recommend this movie to anyone who loves films with a twist."
