|Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation | Release Date: May 19, 1999||CRITIC SCORE DISTRIBUTION|
Phantom may not be the best entry in the series, but it's the most technically accomplished, and it makes you as hungry for the next film as you've been for this one.
Forget the hype, and the backlash. The Phantom Menace is captivating.
A breathless, exciting family movie with a couple of truly memorable sequences, and just enough in the way of story and character to keep the franchise going for another 20 years.
It earns an "Incomplete'' -- because we won't know the results until we see Lucas' next chapter.
Not only is it just a movie, it's just a ho-hum movie.
It's a complete drag.
Computer technology may be the actual phantom menace, after all.
