I wasn't going to see this for a few weeks but was REALLY bored at work and there's a theater down the street. Go figure... If you liked the original Star Wars, even if you hated 1 & 2 (like I did!) SEE this one. It is dark and violent. There is no stupid Jar Jar kind of humor device, in fact you will rarely laugh watching this. It ties up perfectly between the old and new SW movies. I think the ONLY reason this didn't get a rating of R is simply because most of the violence is aimed toward droids, no blood is shown, etc. Other wise the violence in this movie push it much closer to R Anyway, see it - on the big screen if you can. Remember this is coming from someone who disliked Ep1, hated Ep2 and was going to wait at least a month to see this.
