Well, I read that too, and I think the reviewers must have been watching a
different movie than I saw. It was action-packed, had a nice plot, fabulous
characters, and *amazing* special effects. The only thing reviews I read
got right were: 1. JarJar Binks is highly irritating - but they felt he was
onscreen all the time being irritating, which is utterly untrue, and 2.
Queen Amidala is like a dress-up doll - but they neglected to mention that
she was utterly *amazing* as well. She whoop big ass.
And Naboo is *so* beautiful ...
