I was bowled over. I am so pleased I can't even begin to describe it. Like my buddy Kent Beyer was sayin, expectations for Episode 1 were high and then dashed. Subsequently expectations for 2 were lower and slightly improved upon. But even though expectations for 3 were still set very high, they were met and exceeded in my opinion. Dueling that puts the darth maul fight to shame, battle scenes that chill you to the core and an emotional tension that builds appropriately for the story. For the first time I feel like I was part of an emotional experience instead of just a special effects experience and thank god the language wasn't as robotic this go around. Episode 3, tied with Empire for my personal fave of the series.
