I had huge expectations for Anakin.
In Ep 1 I was expecting a mystical, powerful, slightly unsettling child who promised greatness with a subtle hint of danger.
What I got was a blonde 50's public information film reject.
"Gee-Wizz Mr Qui-Gon. Is that a Laser-sword? Mooooom. I fell down again."
In Ep2 I was expecting a Jedi prodegy, powerful and charismatic yet almost too passionate, with terrible hints that his power and abilities were outstripping his control.
What I got was a whiney adolecent who's stock phrase seemed to be "it's not fair."
In Ep3 I was expected a tormented warrior, a good man but with a lust for power and a love he could not afford to have, who's flawed but understandable choices would lead him down a tragic and terrible road.
What I got was a whiney twenty something who spent most of the movie playing "I love you more" with his wife and was so stupid that he actually lost a lightsaber fight by jumping into the blade.
Sorry, I had to quote the whole thing because it's all true. Hardcore true. Like, if Superman walked in the room and said all that, you KNOW it's the truth because he never lies.
What a sad, sorry state of affairs the new trilogy is in....
