    I thought TPM was an okay film that got hampered by some naff characters/acting. Liam Neeson is a great actor, and he protrayed a Jedi Master to an excellent degree. Come to think of it, anyone with a lightsabre was great. The duel at then end was fantastic.

    Jake Lloyds acting was.... suspect... in places, but I don't think he did that bad a job. It was Jar Jar that knacked the film.

    Agree with Exar. First scenes were great. Pity I had myself spoiled and wasn't surprised when I saw them in the cinema.

    I was really dissapointed the first time around. It was recently on tv, and I really liked, overall. Jar Jar (well, actually, the sheer amount of obviously GC characters and items) is still a bit of a problem and the main characters are rather shallow, but the fact that the Jedi Counsil was a bit formal worked when contrasted with Qui-Gon. I definitely saw worse movies. Not the same magic as the OT but well, I was a teenager at the time, so it was different. Seeing them now and hearing the texts makes me cringe, a tad.

    Jeez! Everyone wants an acadamy performance to make them all fuzzy and weepy!

    That would be the final lightsaber fight. (So I suppose Nick is the one who saved TPM.)
