Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones
A Jedi Shall Not Know Anger. Nor Hatred. Nor Love.
Ten years after the events of the Battle of Naboo, the galaxy has undergone significant changes. Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi are assigned to protect Padmé from political separatists. As relationships form and powerful forces collide, these heroes face choices that will impact the destiny of the Republic.
The force is tickling my fancy in this prequel! Case in point Yoda (Frank Oz) and Count Dooku's (Christopher Lee) Epic lightsaber battle!
See it here (the first 2 minutes and 43 seconds of the video)
Still top heavy in the exposition department which makes it a daunting task to get through the segments of the film that serve as nothing more than a set up for overly abundant subplots! But once the film kicks into high gear we finally see glimpses of the Star Wars we all have come to know and love!
Yoda gets more face time and thankfully R2-D2 and C-3PO make their way onto the screen and inevitably into our hearts!
Recommended by Tim Ehrens via "Movie Request Hotline" Thank you soooo much Tim I'm having a great time revisiting the series!
That little green fella from the Vodafone ads must be desperate for money to appear in this shit.
No luck swaying the kids to my side with this one. The 9-year-old during the picnic scene: "Which one of these two would you pick to be stuck with in a room?"
Unlike the incredibly hyped, feverish release of The Phantom Menace three years earlier, Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones loomed large with more a muted sense of expectation, a 'new hope' as it were that George Lucas might have learned a few lessons from the severe disappointment his first prequel in the planned trilogy turned out to be, due to cardboard dialogue, stiff acting, leaden plotting and a remarkable lack of fun. Perhaps aware of his own shortcomings behind the typewriter, Lucas hired a young writer, Jonathan Hales, to help him pen this second instalment but in no uncertain terms, two heads were not better than one. Attack of the Clones desperately wants to be this trilogy's Empire…

Star Wars: Attack of the Clones is a good improvement over The Phantom Menace, showcasing humor, heart, romance, and a plethora of action with a story-line that actually happens to be interesting. Even with a great amount of Star Wars goodness, the dialogue and some of the main performances fail to raise this installment to the heights of other films in the massive saga.
Right off the bat, let's go over the negatives. The writing and conversations in this film is atrocious, corny, and terrifyingly bad at every turn. Especially in moments between Padme and Anakin, their romantic discussions are as limp and dry as a dead sea turtle covered with sand.
Sand? SAND? DID SOMEONE MENTION SAND?
Not as bad as the Phantom Menace, but that's not saying much.
Still amazingly dreadful, despite the occasionally pretty pulp sci-fi visuals.
Although there are still fleeting pleasures to be found here (mainly, or perhaps solely, in the form of thrilling set pieces), "Attack of the Clones" is without a doubt the weak link in the Star Wars saga.

Que caray, esta de verdad ha perdido mucha fuerza, y en su momento era la que más era fácil defender, pero de verdad, estos 13 años y el abuso de los efectos digitales no le ayudan, todo se ve tan falso, y sumemosle las muy malas actuaciones y que Lucas nunca fue un gran director
EL audio es lo que todavía es impresionante, recuerdo que la escena en que Obi Wan persigue a Jango con las minas me hizo muy feliz de haber adquirido mis bocinas 6.1 de segunda mano cuando salió el DVD (que creo es todavía la mejor manera de ver esta cinta, en 1080p ya acusa demasiado tanta cosa hecha en computadora)
All grown up ankin is much angrier and so much more powerful
A million times better than Episode I but still objectively not good: the script is crashingly expositional, unsubtle and unfunny, the acting is so abhorrent it defies description, and the CGI veers between great and embarrassingly shoddy, even for its time.
And yet... and yet... there is so much here that is cool and fun. It's great to see Amidala getting to do some action stuff, the psuedo-neo-space-noir feel of the beginning is enjoyable and unexpected, the droid assembly-line setpiece is exhilarating and the gladiator-style action sequence towards the end - despite some horrid puns - is exciting and visually witty. If only Padmé and Anakin had been played by young actors with chops, this might have been upgraded to a 3/5.
Even worse acting and dialogue than the first but, it's not bad.

Most of these aren't NEARLY as bad as everyone makes them out to be on here. And I don't particularly…
