I'm Getting too old for Star Wars
I saw every Star Wars episode except this one. And the Sith one..I think. So OK I'm not a huge fan. But this one was long, and filled with bad acting and an abrupt ending.

The love story between Anakin and Senator Amidala strains credibility and they have no chemistry. The actor who played Anakin is not very compelling; he looks like a normal high-school kid; maybe that's the idea. His delivery was one-dimensional. The whole love story just seems like an extra factor the director put in there to make the film 3 hours long.

I'm a fan of Samuel L. Jackson, but was shocked at his awful acting here. He delivered lines not like a venerable Jedi knight; but as a Shaft reading a boring script. He had no inflection in his voice, but there was no gravity either. It was just shallow and made you feel as if the whole "episode" was just a sleepwalking effort by everyone. What an insult.

Ewan McGregor fared better. His young Obi-Wan had some good lines and he was convincing as a struggling mentor for his "paduan", Anakin.

C3PO and R2 appear, but they seem so dated already; and as comic relief it was entirely predictable.

The gladiator scene was perhaps the best action sequence. The clone battle was not very interesting. Who was the clone again? They all were wearing federation masks, so you can't tell.

You get to see Yoda light-saber duel with Count Dooku (nicely played by Christopher Lee)but the result of the battle was anticlimactic, as was the ending, abruptly stopping just when you thought the movie was hitting its stride. It's all those quiet scenes (Anakin going back for his mother, conversations with Padme, council conversations) that made this film extremely front-heavy, and made me so disappointed at the anticlimax after nearly 3 hours of viewing.

I hope the Sith is better.
