Movie Critique: Star Wars Episode 1 - Phantom Menace 3D
Two Jedi Knights uncover a wider conflict when they are sent as emissaries to the blockaded planet Naboo. Stars: Ewan McGregor, Liam Neeson and Natalie Portman
This installment of Star Wars isn't new. It was originally released in 1999. But like some much of Hollywood today, if you can enhance and rerelease, you're good to go.
This time around, it's shown in 3D.
Sadly, the 3D glasses didn't help. I don't think the technology is there to take an old master and create the amazing 3D effects like the movies that are originally produced with 3D in mind.
I think it would have been more fun to see the original Star Wars from the late 70s with the 3D technology. Perhaps George Lucas thinks the original Star Wars trilogy is no longer relevant.
Don't get my wrong, I still liked the show, but it wasn't an improvement. If you enjoy the Star Wars movie franchise, you'll want to see this show. But if you're just curious about seeing a Star Wars movie in 3D, you may want to save your money.
