Phantom Menace Review

Summary: A space movie about the battle between The Evil Trade Federation and the natives of the planet Naboo.

Genre: Sci-Fi and Fantasy.

Gore: Not any gore, although there is one Lightsaber (blades of light) where one person chopped in half and another gets stabbed.

Rating: 2 out of 4 stars. Not a very good movie with bad acting (except Darth Maul) and even worse special effects.

3-D: One thing that really killed it was the ‘3-D’ that did absolutely nothing to the movie. The only 3-D parts were the trailers before the movie started.

Character List: Qui-Gon Jinn (Liam Neeson) is the Main Jedi Knight. Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor) is his apprentice. Padme (Natalie Portman) is one Queen Amidala’s servants who follows Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan on their adventure. Anakin Skywalker (Jake Lloyd) is their young friend who Qui-Gon senses the force in. Darth Maul (Peter Serafinowicz) is the evil Sith apprentice.

Caution: Spoilers Ahead
