The fall of Anakin Skywalker (Hayden Christensen). There are rousing lightsaber duels, yet Anakin, locked in his private adolescent snit fit, never takes that crucial turn toward the destructive narcissism of Darth Vader. The one figure who taps the true spirit of Star Wars is Ewan McGregor, who plays Alec Guinness’ playfulness.
