Star Wars: The Phantom Menace: (1999, Rated image02.jpg, 133min, Twentieth Century Fox, Directed by George Lucas; Cast: Liam Neeson, Jake Lloyd, Natalie Portman, Ewan McGregor, Pernilla August, Samuel L. Jackson, Ray Park. Voices: Ahmed Best, Frank Oz, Anthony Daniels, Kenny Baker).

‘Star Wars’, when you hear or read that name, what comes to your mind? Adventure and excitement, dazzling special effects, which is enough to send your jaw dropping. Star Wars is one of the all-time classic movies, which people love. The original trilogy somehow captured viewers' imagination like no other movie possibly could, taking them on a wild ride through spectacular places and meeting unforgettable characters and creatures. George Lucas surprised us all by producing a collection of great films and now after all these years he surprised us again by making a new film.

Words really can't describe the visual experience of "The Phantom Menace," but every frame in the 131-minute movie is great to look at.

I'm ready for Episode II, as watching young Skywalker become corrupted by the dark side has got to be one hell of a story. It is a great idea to show us this boy when we know he will become the evil Darth Vader in the later films because it will explain why he changed from a Jedi of the Force to a villain who’s against the Force.
