I've always felt at odds with everyone who ever called The Phantom Menace a disappointment. The breakneck pod-race across the desert dunes was as thrilling as cinema ever got in the late 90s. The final lightsabre battle with Darth Maul (pictured) was the best use of a double-bladed lightsabre ever. And it was an interesting addition to the existing Star Wars universe, suggesting that the great villain Darth Vader was once a good-hearted slaveboy who loved his mum. Jar Jar Binks was a comic-relief alien that made most people sick, but come on, it's only a movie.

As a great fan with collectors items and such I had high hopes for this movie and a long time coming only to have my hopes dashed by the annoying cartoon style storyline sub plots with the horrible and stupid Jar Jar the special effects were brilliant expected nothing less but this by far the sillest of all the films
