Extracts from this document...



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. This film dazzles viewers with sci-fi adventure, strange new worlds and computer-generated characters. It also reveals more about the Star Wars legend. The history.

The Star Wars movies have always relied on the nobility of heroes and the nastiness of villains, and The Phantom Menace is no exception. The good guys win in the end, but not without a great deal of courage, ingenuity, and luck.

Star Wars: Episode 1--The Phantom Menace" captured my imagination and I enjoyed it. The film is not a masterpiece, but it's an example of how imagination and technology can create superior entertainment. If you like science-fiction films and you haven’t seen the film already I recommend that you should see it in a good cinema so you can be; Sitting in a darkened theater, staring at the screen, and absorbing the sounds and images of a science-fiction phenomenon.

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.
