Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith was written and directed by George Lucas. It stars Ewan McGregor, Natalie Portman, Hayden Christensen, Ian McDiarmid, Samuel L. Jackson, Christopher Lee, Anthony Daniels, Kenny Baker and Frank Oz. It is the final installment in the Star Wars prequel trilogy, the third chapter in the Skywalker saga, and the sixth Star Wars film to be released overall.
It is arguably the best of the prequel movies and gets a lot of stuff right. Over-reliance on soulless computer-generated effects aside, the battles never disappoint. Also, emotional screams aside, our (anti) hero’s transformation into the iconic Darth Vader is tastefully handled. McGregor is perfect. The CGI still looks great to this day. The film regains and sustains the filmic Force that Lucas dreamed up a long time ago.
General Grievous was a brilliant Separatist military strategist and a feared Jedi hunter, known for his ruthlessness and hacking cough. His body itself was a weapon, allowing him lightning-quick strikes and devastating blows. But he was also quick to run from a fight, a tactic that worked several times until that one final meeting with Obi-Wan Kenobi.
General Obi-Wan Kenobi of the Republic is sent to infiltrate General Grievous’s hideout on Utapau. Obi-Wan interrupts Grievous’s meeting with the other Separatist members, landing in the middle of an army of droids. Obi-Wan makes quick work of his bodyguards. Grievous calls the rest of them off and takes out his four lightsabers to engage his arch-enemy – Obi-Wan Kenobi- in a duel.
