Here's my theory about why Lucas made Luke & Leia brother & sister. I'm sure many others have thought about this, too. Before Return of the Jedi, it was said Harrison Ford only signed a contract to be in Star Wars and Empire. Since Lucas didn't know if Harrison would be willing to return, he thought he could easily make Luke & Leia a couple. But when the producer convinced Ford to return, Lucas needed a reason why there couldn't be a love triangle in Star Wars! So, he decided to make Luke & Leia brother & sister. That way Han could end up with Leia. (Lucas could have killed off Luke in Return).

Hayden Christensen maybe gives the single worst performance of the 00s. Much of it looks like a video game. The only thing that made me happy was Christopher Lee.

EXTREMELY GOOD. Awesome. The part when Skywalker turned to the dark side was cool. But this movie had the most thrilling lightsaber duel of all Star Wars history, Obi-wan against Anakin. It had three more duels too.

Star Wars is one of my favorite movies. While I like the prequels better, the sequels are great too. Love the wampa!

Han: I'm sure Luke wasn't on that think when it blew up!
Leia: He wasn't. I can feel it.
Han: You love him, don't you?
Leia: Yes.
Han: Alright. I understand. When Luke comes back, I'll stay out of the way.
Leia: No, it's not like that at all. You see, he's my brother.
Han: (Most perplexed, befuddled, bewildered, amazed, etc. look on his face)

Frightening or Intense Scenes: Anakin's mother is tortured (we only hear her screams through a dream) and dies in Anakin's arms. He then goes on a killing rampage. There are other scenes that may frighten a young child as well.

Violence: ***SPOILER*** When Anakin loses both legs and his other arm, and then catches on fire, it's pretty graphic and probably not suitable for all children. Also, many of the more beloved characters are killed in this movie. Use discretion.
