Slimnave’s review published on Letterboxd:
"This is where the fun begins..."
Easily the strongest of the prequel trilogy, but still not great. There are still many drawbacks that keep this from being above average: the tone is all over the place, lots of cheesy puns, Hayden Christensen's acting still isn't very good, children getting murdered, Emperor Palpatine sits behind a desk for some reason, the "emergency suit" they design for create for Anakin on the fly comes with a cape, Darth Vader screaming "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO."
Once again the score is really the only thing holding this movie together. Without the great musical themes this would be absolutely nothing. The visual effects are also a bit of an improvement over the previous two films in the trilogy. Overall this is a decent movie with great music and some fun action sequences, and that's about it - 5/10.
