My biggest complaint of PM was the casting of Samuel L. Jackson and the character Ric Olie, who explained everything before it happened.
Jar Jar bothered me more than Jake Lloyd, and I also could have done without Samuel L. Jackson. Ray Parks as Darth Maul was awesome, and is one of the better villains in the entire series.
