This movie is the worst of the six. I'd say what the movie has going for it is the characters Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi. I feel having watched the original trilogy first helps in interest in the character Obi-Wan. Liam Neeson as Qui-Gon Jinn and Ewan McGregor as Obi-Wan Kenobi. Where as with Anakin, if you didn't know what he's about, you don't relate to him, because you don't really understand how important he is until at least the next movie. And even then, depending on which movies you have seen, it doesn't really kick in until the third movie. For some reason I thought Darth Maul was cooler, but seeing this movie recently, I think Darth Maul only had a little moment to shine.
