I have heard some people call this one of the worst movies ever made, but I do think those people just haven't seen truly terrible movies. This is by no means a good movie, it may very well be the worst Star Wars movie, but that is still a far cry from the likes of "Troll 2" and "The Room." This movie, however, does have a lot of bad going for it, but there are some redeeming qualities. This movie does a good job of setting up some of the Star Wars mythology that has spawned many comics and fan fiction. It gave us one of the coolest villains in Darth Maul, an iconic John Williams track "Duel of the Fates," and an epic lightsaber duel. Liam Neeson and Ewan McGregor have some interesting chemistry. Neeson does seem a little disinterested at times in this film, but McGregor's over excitement kind of balances that out in a good way. We all know what is bad with this film, dialogue that is awful, Jar Jar Binks, too much podracing, and poor acting from a lot of the cast. The story is very slow. The point of this movie was to set up some ground work for the inevitable rise of the Empire and there is not a whole lot of that happening outside of some trade disputes, which are boring to say the least. George Lucas loves special effects, and he should have used less CGI because it has not aged well at all. The aliens look like PlayStation 2 cutscenes, and that just doesn't have a good aesthetic appeal nowadays. Jake Lloyd has a very rough time acting as Anakin Skywalker. Poor kid. This film has a different feel than the original trilogy movies, but it still has a Star Wars feel to it which is good. This movie is PG so it could qualify as a "kid" movie, but the boring politics in it makes it not engaging enough for kids and the annoying characters are not good for adults that take the series seriously. This film does some things that it needed to do in the Star Wars universe, but ultimately falls a bit flat and is a more bad than good movie unfortunately. Overall I give this film a 5/10.
