Aroview: Dir. George Lucas completes his blockbusting space opera saga with a gratifying flourish, providing certainly the most thrilling and affecting of the 'prequels' and a coherent narrative bridge to the chronologically-later films (which were actually filmed first).
In this 'episode', the central figure of Anakin Skywalker / Darth Vader (Christensen) is sucked further away from the path of Jedi-ism by personal tragedies and the seductions of the Sith ideology. Despite a lack of wit and subtlety, the film compensates by flooding the screen with scintillating dog-fights and duels, sinister drama and a generous smorgasbord of sci-fi eye-candy.
Includes a full-length documentary, two featurettes – "The Chosen One" & "It's All for Real" - and a 15-part collection of Lucasfilm’s groundbreaking “web documentaries”.
