Kevin Smith Reviews ‘Revenge of the Sith’
Director Kevin Smith (Clerks, Chasing Amy) has written one of the first reviews of George Lucas’s Star Wars: Episode 3 — Revenge of the Sith. Posted on his website,, the review contains numerous spoilers — and numerous adjectives that are not likely to be included in any ads for the movie. Smith calls it “quite simply, f***ing awesome.” He remarks that it “is so satisfyingly tragic, you’ll think you’re watching Othello or Hamlet.” He says that Lucas was correct in setting a dark tone for the film and suggests that there are several scenes that will disturb children. However, he notes, “This is the birth of Darth Vader we’re talking about. The only comic moments in the flick are given to R2D2, and while good, they’re all pretty few and far between; the order of the day is dark, dark, dark.”
