It not only went to Hell, it went with gusto! The story was more original than what we had seen in the prequels, and it was long-awaited. Destruction has always ben easier than creation, and it was a great ride to see the cosmos crash and burn.
Complaint; Anakin took all of 10 seconds to turn into Darth Vader. Hmmm… not quite the emotional, gut-wrenching and tortured decision we thought it was going to be. I had expected more from the Chosen One who would become the scourge of the galaxy. Aside from that though, sure, there were some story gaps and a few things that maybe would’ve been worked in or out, but hey…. there are potentially three more films to go.
With the loose ends not so much tied as lain out for the original trilogy, this one reached epic. No bathroom breaks.
