Ten years after the invasion of Naboo, the galaxy is on the brink of civil war. Under the leadership of a renegade Jedi named Count Dooku, thousands of solar systems threaten to break away from the Galactic Republic. When an assassination attempt is made on Senator Padmé Amidala, the former Queen of Naboo, twenty-year-old Jedi apprentice Anakin Skywalker is assigned to protect her. In the course of his mission, Anakin discovers his love for Padmé as well as his own darker side. Soon, Anakin, Padmé, and Obi-Wan Kenobi are drawn into the heart of the Separatist movement and the beginning of the Clone Wars.
obi-wan: the planet is supposed to be right here but it's not, can you get the children to help me find it
yoda: dude it's right there
obi-wan: oh yeah
George Lucas's Star Wars saga - a mythological amalgamation of Kurosawa, F.W. Murnau, Flash Gordon etc. - is radicalized through the vivid prospect of advancing technology. If the evolution of film form is just as dependent on the gear as the artists behind the camera, then Lucas is undoubtedly one of the greats (even when casting aside box office totals and, to quote Spaceballs, "merchandizing, merchandizing, merchandizing!"), but Lucas weaves tech progression into the narrative itself. While The Phantom Menace was a visceral puzzle piece birthed out of 70s blockbuster ingenuity, then Attack of the Clones is a heads-first operatic dive into the sunset of a society, a galaxy, a government. Its politics are ambiguous and undefined - as…
Caught this on TV in France when I was on vacation a couple years ago, and even though I could hardly understand a word of the dubbed version, I was enraptured by its images and its miraculous sense of sound design (those Seismic Charges tho). Watching it with the dialogue intact is frustrating, especially because Lucas' vision is so grand and ambitious. It's like watching a child trying to put a puzzle together. You want to help them along the way, but it is essential that the child works through it on their own. The uneasiness comes from the idea that they'll never solve the puzzle.
That little green fella from the Vodafone ads must be desperate for money to appear in this shit.
Don't let Jar-Jar Lloyd fever cloud your mind; this is the worst Star Wars in a walk. It's every bit the simpleton kids tale as the first, but now it's dressed up in guise of a movie meant for grown-ups (or whatever passes for grown-up among die-hards). This leads to love scenes that sound like they were written by an 11-year-old and an emphasis on action that makes up for the relative dearth of it in the last film by just throwing as much shit as possible into the frame, nearly all of it animated so that the few genuine, living people in a shot are really just waving sticks about.
Speaking of the animation, the combination of flat animation…

A meh film. Its motives are clear however ruined by the awful amount of CG, Heydon Christensen and cringy dialogue.
My most hated film.
Haydn Christensen is like a bad James Dean, and tries to be super emotional while leering at Natalie Portman.
Ewan MacGregor is on point as Obi-Wan. Previously, I'd only seen him as Frank Churchill in 1995's Emma.
This installment is much improved from its predecessor in every way. Better graphics, pacing, costuming, and story...though there is some inane "romantic" dialogue between Anakin and Amidala.
Felt like a high school romantic drama rather than Star Wars

I suppose lots of lots of people really hates this film. And I think this hate has lead to suffering in Hollywood.
Where it all began? Already back in 1977 I guess. Boys and girls, men and women wanted to know what happened before the Rebels won their first victory against the Empire.
They wanted to see the downfall of the republic. But deep inside there was also a fear of those events not being as great as they did imagine them to be.
Twenty years later those question were about to be answered. The fear…
It's much more watchable than 'Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace'. I mean, I would never watch that film again, but if you paid me enough, I would watch 'Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones' again. So I guess that is an improvement. It's still awful, though.
Unlike The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones isn't boring from start to finish. I was laughing my ass off at a lot of this film unintentionally. That's not really a positive, but hey, at least I was able to find some enjoyment with this turd.
Ewan McGregor was okay in this I suppose. Which is a huge accomplishment considering this film is directed by George Lucas. The…
