The Star Wars prequels are bad. They're stilted and strange, with bland stories that get stuck in first gear, performances that can't escape director George Lucas's apparent desire to create an emotionless universe, and gratuitous visual effects that at times seem to be the movies' main reason to exist.
Hereof, are the Star Wars prequels worth watching?
Yeah, they're worth watching if you enjoyed the originals, if only to complete the circle. Attack of the Clones is probably only worth watching once though. Each of the prequels has good moments, and it's good to know what happened in them since they are in the same canon as the movies that will be coming out.
Also Know, why the Star Wars prequels are better than the sequels?
In conclusion, I like the prequels more than the sequels because the prequels had a clear vision, better lightsaber fights, better characters, and wasn't bogged down by diversity. For those of us who were too young then, why did the prequel trilogy (Episodes 1, 2, and 3) of Star Wars supposedly suck?
Why were the Star Wars prequels made after?
In 1980, at the time of the release of The Empire Strikes Back, Lucas said there were seven further Star Wars films he wanted to make. So new trilogy was supposed to make its debut. 80s movie technology may not be enough to shoot Prequels and Sequels, thats why Lucas intended to release them until CGI technology.
Why did Star Wars sequels fail?
The problem with the sequel trilogy is that it fails in basic story telling. Each movie is incoherent from the story that comes before and after it…and the saga as a whole. One of those three movies was very open about it's disrespect towards the franchise/story. The other two failed to capture the “vibe.”
