In The Phantom Menace the big thing that happens in this movie is that they meet Anakin Skywalker, who is known later on as Darth Vader. Of course, he is just a small kid in this movie and does not know that one day he will have a kid, named Luke Skywalker. Then he is going to cut off his sons hand. Of course, this is many years away. In fact, that is many movies away. Also, in The Phantom Menace you see that everyone is scared because the evil Sith has returned. In the movie they talk a lot more about why this is bad, but you can take a wild guess why. The movie is very cool to watch and was a great way to end out the 90's. The next movies, of course, came out after the year 2000. In fact, one came out in 2002 and the next in 2005. They just pump these movies out like clockwork. Anyway, this is a great movie to see if you need to know what happened before the first Star Wars movie which came out a long time ago. It does do a good job helping to fill in the pieces of the story, and if you ever read the books, then you can see where this movie is going. In fact, I know a lot of people that started reading the books before the first Star Wars movie came out. The movies are great and a must see.
The Phantom Menace is a well done movie and is the best out of the three news ones that they went on to make. However, I think this is because people got a little turned off after watching the first one. They can see that the movies are different from the other Star Wars they grew up watching, but at the same time they had already paid money to see it. It was a pretty good movie, but not one that I will ever go out and by. I own the first three movies that came out a long time ago that are the real Star Wars movies. In fact, the fourth movie in the film is the one called Star Wars. It is called Episode IV: Star Wars, and that is where the Star Wars saga starts for me.
