DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Sci-Fi - Like the previous five films in the series, this is an effects- and action-packed science fiction adventure. However, the tone of this film is considerably darker than previous installments and plays more like a tragic drama in spite of all the action. The violence is also more graphic intense (reflected in the harsher rating) though not overly bloody. Parents of young children are warned.

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Very Good With the arrival of Revenge of the Sith, Lucas places the missing piece of the six-film arc that tells of the rise, fall, and redemption of Darth Vader. It's a rousing and tragic sendoff to a beloved franchise, and the best installment in the Star Wars series since 1980's The Empire Strikes Back.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Very Good His "Star Wars" movies are among the most influential, both technically and commercially, ever made. And they are fun. If he got bogged down in solemnity and theory in "Episode II: Attack of the Clones," the Force is in a jollier mood this time, and "Revenge of the Sith" is a great entertainment.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away….

Sometime during Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith, Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker will make a fateful decision. Faced with a choice between losing the one he loves or giving up his soul to gain the power to save her, Anakin will fall prey to the seductive temptations of the dark side of the Force.

Just what Anakin's decision is, why he makes it and how it leads him to don a frightening suit of black armor have been the stuff of Star Wars legend. After nearly 30 years of waiting and speculating, moviegoers will discover for themselves exactly how and why heroic Anakin Skywalker – prophesied to be the Chosen One, the single individual who would bring balance to the Force and ensure peace throughout the galaxy becomes the dreaded Darth Vader, right hand to the Emperor.

They will learn how Anakin's mentors, the swashbuckling Obi-Wan Kenobi and the diminutive Jedi Master Yoda, managed to survive the fabled destruction of the Jedi Order only to live the rest of their days hiding on distant, hostile planets.

They will learn what turned seemingly benevolent and thoughtful Chancellor Palpatine into the dictatorial leader of the feared Galactic Empire.

They will learn how Anakin's children, Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa, came to be born, then separated … destined to lead the legendary Rebellion against the Empire. 

As Revenge of the Sith opens, the final catastrophic battles of the Clone Wars are taking place galaxy wide – including one in the skies above the city-planet Coruscant, seat of the crumbling Republic and also home to the Jedi Knights. Chancellor Palpatine has been taken hostage by the nefarious General Grievous, leader of the droid army – the mechanized battle troops of the Separatist Alliance.

Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor) and Anakin Skywalker (Hayden Christensen) take on a desperate rescue effort, facing long odds to free Palpatine and destroy Grievous. It's a daring mission, but only the start of the fiercely pitched battles and Jedi action that fill Episode III, the most action-filled of all of the Star Wars movies.

The opening battle sets in motion a series of events that lead up to the moment of truth for Anakin – whose secret always threatens to catch up with him: He is leading a dual life as a Jedi Knight while covertly married to the beautiful Senator Padmé Amidala (Natalie Portman). Preying on Anakin's fears of losing Padmé, Palpatine reveals to Anakin another side of the Force, one that is forbidden to him, but one that promises to teach him powers he never imagined possible.

Obi-Wan recognizes Anakin's inner conflict, and ultimately must face off against his once-promising Padawan learner in a lightsaber battle on the volcanic planet of Mustafar.
