Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones
A Jedi Shall Not Know Anger. Nor Hatred. Nor Love.
(22 Years Before Episode IV) 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!

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…
I've seen this like, a million times and I still have no idea why the Sepratists wanted Padme dead.... but whatever, I don't recall having this much fun with Attack of the Clones since I first saw it in theaters, and that was my first time seeing a Star Wars film "not" on VHS.
It's still pretty terrible, but I'll take terrible Star Wars over terrible.... well anything.
Obi-Wan vs. Jango on Kamino is my new favorite fight scene in the whole prequel trilogy.
feels less fake.

Attack of the Clones isn't quite as bad as I remembered it. The first 20 minutes alone are more thrilling than anything in The Phantom Menace. Unfortunately, the rest of the film is as boring as the first film of the trilogy and Hayden Christensen is a worse Anakin than Jake Lloyd.
I hate myself for loving Hayden C
I'm going through the Star Wars movies again in preparation for the 7th.
It's the worst of the saga, but it's still got a lot of positive aspects. The action sequences are some of the best in the series, there are a lot of creative worlds realized (though not explored in near enough detail), and I actually don't mind the political aspects or even the mediocre romance. But, yeah, it's the least memorable of the 6 and still exists only as transition between two better films.
The "romance" between Padmé and Anakin leaves a lot to be desired. The only good things about the prequel trilogy are the droids, which are awesome tech.
After seeing the tragedy that is Phantom Menace you think that things couldn't possibly get worse but they do with Attack of the Clones It is even slower than Phantom Menace and even though Jar Jar hardly speaks the dialogue actually got worse than what it was in the previous film. The Romance between Padma and Anakin is truly a rushed and forced relationship and Hayden Christensen acts as if he has never heard of range in his life. Too much politics is focused on and not enough character development. The Lightsaber battle at the end is nice but it can never redeem this horrible film that is a disgrace to the Star Wars universe.
The amazing effectscannot justify the terrible acting and dry script of the dialogues. Rent it, but skip to the chases.
Not as great as it could've been, but Attack of the Clones is still an enjoyable movie with great action and only drags a little, but it overall improves upon Phantom Menace. It also includes more of the fun Star Wars humour of the original trilogy, rather than the stupid slapstick stuff of which Phantom Menace included too much of.
So much more interesting and entertaining than the Phantom Menace. Would've been even better if they got rid of Anakin's creepiness.
Most of these aren't NEARLY as bad as everyone makes them out to be on here. And I don't particularly…
