Still a disappointment, even seeing it again with lowered expectations. Design is the only strength in the movie. The cities, ships, creatures, and ‘droids are all exceptionally well designed and nice to look at. The story is routine, the dialog atrocious. Even some exceedingly good actors often can’t deliver the lines with any credibility and poor Jake Lloyd doesn’t stand a chance against his lines as young Anakin Skywalker. He does pretty well when not forced to speak, though. And Ray Park, of course, moves well as Darth Maul. There’s never any real suspense, though, as we don’t care a whit about what happens to anyone in the movie. The original trilogy was all about relationships against a backdrop of politics and war. Here politics and war are brought to the fore with relationships barely receiving any notice. And the post conversion 3D is minimal and pointlessness only serving, when it’s at all noticeable, to make things look even more artificial.
