(Assumes we're talking about the Star Wars prequels)

Revenge of the Sith gets a bad rap. It has significant good points alongside the Classic Prequel Flaws.

The criticism directed at the other two is completely legitimate.

All three of them get some well-deserved criticism. But all three have strong redeeming points, and many of the complaints levied against them miss the point of the movies. Discussion, for example, of the politics of the Phantom Menace recentralize the plot around those political discussions, when in reality they served more as a backdrop to Jedi kicking ass against a bunch of battle droids, giving us something we'd never seen before - the Jedi at the height of their power. Are the political discussions too long? Yes. Are they really the central plot point of the movie? No. They're the excuse for the plot. The plot is the spirit of cooperation between the Naboo and the Gungans, and the emergence of an enemy (Darth Maul and through him, the Sith) that poses a credible threat to the Jedi Order at the height of its power.

Attack of the Clones is by far the weakest of the trilogy, but even that one has some redeeming qualities. The emergence of Dooku as a continuation of a threat thought by many to be finished after Maul's death, for example (or really, Christopher Lee in general). It gets (deserved) crap for Yoda's fight scene, but the artistry that goes into the Obi-Wan/Anakin v Dooku fight right before it is ignored. The creation of direct parallels to things we know and recognize in the future, like the clones/AT-TE's/Acclimators that are reminiscent of stormtroopers, AT-ATs, and Star Destroyers gets glossed over because people were upset that it included a love story. Was the love story garbage? Absolutely, but that's more a fault with the direction and dialogue writing than the plot writing.
