Hi! Well, I've saw the AOTC just ad midnight of Wednesday, actually 6 hours before the East Coast debut, in Italy. ;-) I've enjoyed AOTC over TPM in big way but I feel it still a subpar production. At the end I'm disappointed again. I expect the best, the movie isn't bad at all. I think how about AOTC could be good with better Acting, Cuts and Music. yes the Music Sucks big time this time. but is there music after the opening titles ?? I can't ear it most of time. maybe have my theather some audio problems ? The Trademarks of original saga are the depth of the story, great acting, excellent cuts & edits, superb music. TPM & AOTC fail to match they. TPM (except Jar-Jar) and even more AOTC fail in big way on the cast, S.L. Jackson is ridiculos into the role of a Jedi Master, The 3 main actors (Portman, Christiansen, McGregow) offer mediocre performance. in TPM Portman can be ok, but on AOTC she's not lived up to the part. Anakin is the focal point of the movie and Christiansen is too raw. Lucas has failed Big time on the cast selection. Instead to wastle millions on special effect spend more to sign better actors!! Why all the Politcs Talks at the start ? The movie really kick-ass only near the end, the first hour is a wastle of time, confuse and caotics. The dialog are uninspiring, plain, weak. The final duel is too short, cut 10 min on the start if necessary. It's time to make movie lenght 2 hours and half at least, TLOR is 3 hours long and still I feel that it's short. My grade : D- or 6 out of 10.
