There's no redeeming it, as much as I wanted to try and find some good in it.
Lucas is about 99% to blame as he's become an awful director, and even worse screenwriter. It's just he's at the point to where no studio has the power to tell him no. He became such a force with Star Wars & Indiana Jones, who would dare tell him he stinks, because he, in effect, owns the damn studio and distribution. I don't know if there are many actors that could have salvaged that script.
He keeps reverting back to his one talking point: "I made this movie for kids"
Actually George, I think you made this movie for your
kids. You gave no regard for anyone else, and just used your own, insulated kids as the litmus test and assumed that the rest of the country was on board.
The prequels are what happens when everyone is too scared to tell the boss "no"
