Ebert Roeper: Two Thumbs Up!

Just saw their early review on TV; overall they love the movie but are not impressed with the dialogue. Following points stood out from their review:

  • Overall probably the best Star Wars since Empire.
  • Dialogue is clunky, pedestrian. Dramatic moments lose some of the effect because of limited power of the dialogue.
  • Though we know how the movie is going to end, the movie does well to keep the suspense going.
  • Overall a good, fun movie in the tradition of the old space operas.

To put this in perspective, Ebert loved Phantom and was not impressed with Attack of the Clones and was a great admirer of the original trilogy.
