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!

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?
It's not wonderful, but don't just jump on the hate bandwagon.
I would be a better Jedi than everyone in this movie.
ANAKIN and PADME stop at the balustrade. PADME looks out across the garden to the shimmering lake and the mountains rising beyond. ANAKIN looks at her silently.
When I was in Level Three, we used
to come here for school retreat.
See that island? We used to swim
there every day. I love the water.
I do too. I guess it comes from
growing up on a desert planet.
PADME becomes aware that ANAKIN is looking at her.
...We used to lie on the sand and
let the sun dry us... and try to
guess the names of the birds
I don’t like sand. It’s coarse
and rough and irritating, and it
gets everywhere. Not…
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. Where the first episode has aging and disconnect issues, this one picks up the pace a little bit and feels much more like the Star Wars films I grew up watching, but it still has issues. There is so much green screen and cg in the film that almost every scene has this glossed over look to it which is very different from the lived in look we got from the original…
Ya Know, this is half bad. Just half, the other half I like. Attack of the Clones is the sequel to Phantom Menace in a trilogy of mediocre prequels. Attack of the Clones is may more emotional than the first one. And the romantic sub-plot is fucking awful. Holy hell, I have never cared less about romance in movies less than in this movie. I don't give a fuck whether they got married or what. But the action is pretty awesome. But this is still my least favorite Star Wars film.
Esse filme me surpreendeu. Foi aqui que comecei a me interessar de verdade em Star Wars, mesmo não sendo um filme da trilogia principal, e mesmo não tendo os mesmos personagens dele. As cenas de ação são muito boas.

This movie surprised me. It was here that I began to be interested in Star Wars, although not a main trilogy movie, and even though his characters. The action scenes are very good.

Attack of the Clones could be a really, really good Star Wars film. It's a strange old film though. It focuses on the wrong story for so long then focuses on the right story and becomes a bit brilliant. It was close to being a great film and I enjoyed it a lot more than than Episode 1 without a doubt, I just wish it didn't feel like Twilight in Space for the first half of the film with the story of Anakin and Padme's blossoming 'romance', a wooden affair with two actors who were out of their prime at this point and had zero chemistry. Once we go back to the clone army and the Republic rebellion then the…
Oh Anni, my love for you is like a lovely overflowing river of loving love.
My...heart is in...AGONY- Every time. I. See you.
Welcome to George Lucas' masterpiece, Star Wars: Episode II: Attack of the Clones. You like really bad and dated CGI? Some of the worst writing ever put on film? Long boring stretches where nothing happens?
Well this film is right up your alley! Right up your arse more like. It's certainly for you if you are a huge Star Wars fan with blinkers on and tunnel vision who can spend hours complaining about these prequels, and then still proceed to rate Attack of the Clones as a 3 or 4 out of 5.
The large battle at the end, is simply not enough to justify sitting through what went before hand, and i honestly can't rate this film highly at all, i can't think of any redeeming qualities.
I've always been interested in what other people are seeing and watching, and naturally, I love looking at Weekend Box…
Most of these aren't NEARLY as bad as everyone makes them out to be on here. And I don't particularly…
