Bluntly speaking? Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith is a mindblowing theatrical treat! In these days of remake central, it's really remarkable the phrase, "A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away..." is still an imaginational springboard - and held by its creator (George Lucas), who has mastered his own galaxy of filmmaking while creating an army of multi-generational viewers. Of course SW3:RofS is a part of an episodic franchise, a prequel and a few other of the oh-so-trendy Hollywood wordings for films based on other films - heck, it's even part of a coveted trilogy! But Star Wars fans (like myself) could care less about the obvious merchandising cashcow elements - hook up that I.V. and let the sabers fly! And here you're all in for a great history lesson, along with the usual battling brouhaha, over-dramatic thespianisms, and maniacal villains dancing about in ILM heaven to yet another wonderful score by John Williams...

Story goes...The Clone Wars are raging galaxy wide - the mayhem has even begun to affect the home-city-planet to the infamous Jedi Knights, Coruscant. (<- I swear Lucas looks about his abode and names these things...perhaps this morning he had a Croissant while contemplating Yoga?....just a thought)

Uh-oh, now there's trouble! The evil General Grievous has just captured the "good" Chancellor Palpatine, and only Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor) and Anakin Skywalker (Hayden Christensen) can be trusted to pull-off the heroic deed of a rescue...

Cue really cool battle scenes and off we go!

But as fate (and Lucas' mind would have it) the events that follow, and the things you thought you knew all along, start to unravel. We will finally find out what makes a good hearted McHottie like Anakin slip over to the darkside and don that cumbersome black suit.

Sure, it's a woman that ultimately creates Darth Vader as we dread him nowadays...but the secrets, hints and blatant information served up here is plain old mesmerizing glee - and very dramatic emotionally.

And the technology available makes the latest battle scenes, truly, spectacular. Lucas and his merry band of visual manipulators do not disappoint there are over 2200 visual effects shots - perhaps a record? And, as Obi-Wan and Anakin waltz about in their "final showdown" on levels 8...and'll simply be in awe.

The piece is swell on the non-effect endorphin thrilled retina too - man-wise. Ewan McGregor, who's a tad older here, is still wielding that saber like a Knight of the Round Table - be still my swashbuckling loving heart! And Hayden Christensen is no Flabby Maclardster either. Still, that black on black with black Goth look he's just getting into is so over...Natalie Portman, under all her make-up, has, once again, the coolest outfits - thanks to costume designer Trisha Bigger - however uncomfortable they may have been.

Episode III is for the fans, true, as all the characters' back stories are revealed and evolve into the last piece of this world's puzzle. But, this is a multi-generational no-clue-who-R2D2-is-yet hootenanny as well. Leave the smaller fans home though, as there's a bit of melodrama that may disturb their little minds in mid-shaping.

Enjoy - and if you can even get in this weekend - the force is truly with you.

Snack recommendation: Burger King© drive through for the cool sure to sing (to the tune of 'Born Free') "Star's nothing but Star Wars....remember to tip your wait staff..."
