But sometimes storytelling can elevate a shallow story into something great.
(That how I look at Mass Effect 2, to pull another artistic genre into this...)
The Phantom Menace, on the other hand, tells a bad story badly. The acting is bad, the script is bad, the story is awful, and then there's jar jar.
That movie has zero redeeming qualities.
