Hang on for a minute...we're trying to find some more stories you might like.


The storyline was nothing new since this was a modification of the original 1999 version. Anakin Skywalker (Jake Lloyd) was a horrible actor, Qui-Gon Jinn (Liam Neeson) was an amazing actor and Jar Jar Binks took up screen time with his annoying pointless character. However, much of the movie was modified from the original. Quite a few scenes were extended and dialogue was added to further character development. There was one scene, for example, that I did not remember in the original version that featured an extended conversation between Anakin and Padme (Natalie Portman) where they told each other that they would always care about each other.

 

One of the main reasons that I wanted to see the movie was because I wanted to see how the pod race scene looked and it did not disappoint. The pod race in 3-D was one of the coolest things I have ever seen. Even though the seat I was in was stationary, I felt like I was on a rollercoaster. The director added numerous first person camera angles and quite a few more collisions, crashes and explosions. It was the best use of the 3-D in the entire movie.

 

The 3-D also enhanced every fight in the movie. I am sure everyone at one point acted like or wanted to be a Jedi. You will not get any closer to feeling like a Jedi than you will while watching this movie. You actually feel like you are a part of everything.

 

I found myself in a packed theater full of jocks and geeks both young and old and it seemed that we all enjoyed the movie quite a bit. From the hardcore fan to the casual watcher, everyone who likes anything in the Star Wars franchise needs to see this movie. It is definitely worth watching. I would give Episode I in 3-D a 9 out of 10.
