There were extremely excellent and the best scenes in the movie "Revenge of the Sith".
Good originality and great imagination, great story in this movie!
Here's Photo gallery for Hayden Christensen(Anakin) of this movie. http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0159789/photogallery-ss-0
I love Star Wars series the most!

i liked this the best of the latest 3, but i still think IV and V (Star Wars & Empire Strikes Back) are the best of the bunch.

although Episode III wasn't marred by the kid-targeted demographic issues that made I & II (& end of VI) so suffocating, it still felt a bit wooden on the acting. Obi Wan and Palpatine were done quite well, but everyone else seemed like they were doing their best Al Gore impressions. Anakin was passable, but felt like there could have been so much more done with the character. other than scowling, there wasn't much of a window into the soul of the "pre-Vader" figure. i really didn't believe the transition into Vader, and it was hard to imagine where James Earl Jones' voice came from.

that said, i think it's really Lucas' direction that leaves much to be desired. the framework of the space opera fantasy he has built is without question one of the most ambitious & thrilling brought to the silver screen, but the flesh on the body of the work has thinned over the years. it's rather obvious his best work is behind him.

but all in all, it remains one of my favorite modern mythologies... perhaps i was less of a critic at age 11 when i saw the original, or at 14 when i saw "Strikes Back". but those 2 films for me really capture the entire line of the story. all else is just a reflection of those 2 great works.

may the force be with you,
