Ranking the Star Wars movies from worst to best


It is clear that the Star Wars series is one of the most adored in the history of science fiction movies. And now that Star Wars fans worldwide are looking forward to a new batch of Star Wars movies, it is time to look back at the entire series of films.

And when it comes to ranking George Lucas’ storied space saga, most fans have a clear order in mind, with 1980’s The Empire Strikes Back generally being considered the high point of the series. Here follows a list of the Star Wars movies ranked from worst to best, including a mention of how well they did at the box office, too.

11. Star Wars: Attack of the Clones ($656 million)

“I’ve become more powerful than any Jedi. Even you” – Count Dooku


Attack of the Clones is perhaps the least entertaining movie of the series to date. This is a film mostly devoid of excitement, and the corny romance between Anakin Skywalker and Padme, with Hayden Christensen’s hammy acting and that cheesy dialog, is a bit painful to watch.

The film also misfires when it comes to special effects, as the CGI is overdone and those endless battle scenes in which Jedis blast countless clone droids become tedious rather quickly. But at least the climatic lightsaber duel between Yoda and Christopher Lee’s character Count Dooku is a highlight in a Star Wars film that was a bit lacking overall, and much less of a box-office hit than its predecessor the Phantom Menace too.
