If by "ending" you mean the fight scenes. It was satisfying, I will say.
But the final moments of the movie are stupid to the point of pissing me off. Anakin lost because Obi-Wan had the high-ground, and a Jedi flip was just impossible to pull off correctly in that scenario? (Wait...didn't Obi-Wan do the exact same effin thing to Darth Maul?!?) Darth Vader have an angst attack about Padme was more funny than dramatic. Yoda and Obi-Wan going into self-imposed exile...um...are you guys tired or something? Just going to hand the whole Republic over to the Sith Lord until Luke grows up, eh? And the best part of all: Padme dies because she loses the will to live? Um...there's a pretty advanced medical robot there, something tells me it could have patched up her minimal physical wounds and take the whole "will to live" factor out of the equation. Oh, but wait...she had
to die to fit Lucas's story, that's right...never mind basic common sense...
was overall an enjoyable flick...best of the prequels, to be sure. But honestly, the last five to seven minutes just kind of spoil the whole thing, leaving it ending on a *** note.
