1999 M Contains low level violence.

Every generation has a legend. Every journey has a first step. Every saga has a beginning.

In this Star Wars prequel, Qui-Gon Jinn (Liam Neeson) and a young Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor) must protect the Queen of Naboo (Natalie Portman) from the evil clutches of Darth Sidious and Senator Palpatine. Along the way, they meet a prepubescent Anakin Skywalker, who shows intimations of a great gift. Dazzling special effects from director George Lucas's CGI specialists make this entry in the saga really hum.

When I watch the Phantom Menace, it reminds me of a 1st course meal at an expensive restaurant. It looks pretty, tastes good, but above all, it’s the start of a great meal.

The start of the movie is a bit rushed and they tried to introduce a lot of new characters. Then on Tatooin the film does slows down and the story gets momentum. Really great light saber fight at the end. My favorite fight by far.
