i had no problem with the acting in this scene. i had no problem with the mood as well. the only problem i had with this scene was the lines...especially the lines coming out of anakin's mouth. it was a bit too much for me. this scene would have been a total knock out if it weren't for those god-awful lines. hayden and natalie did an excellent job with the acting and the delivery, but these lines they had to work with held the potential of this entire scene back.
