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.
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…
That little green fella from the Vodafone ads must be desperate for money to appear in this shit.

In the lead up to the new Jar Jar Abrams Star Wars films my man friend and I have decided to re-watch the entire mess from start to finish.
He spent the entire film whispering in a deathly voice "Politics!" every time someone rambling on unnecessarily and made overt crying noises every time Hayden Christiansen was on screen. He then made burritos for everyone and it still wasn't over. What a way to spend the night.
To be fair, I have a soft spot for this film, as I do for all the prequels. I was keen as hell to see them when they first came out and I still have that love, though thoroughly muted now. There are some…
I had great hopes for Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones after the let down of Episode I. I thought that it would get better but it ended up being even worse.
I was expecting to see how Anakin Skywalker developed his training and how he finally became a Jedi. I guess that would have been interesting to see. George Lucas was more concerned about creating one of the worst love stories in cinema! Anakin and Padmé's love story seems so forced! Their scenes together were supposed to be romantic but in fact they bored me a lot. Also their dialogues, well all dialogues in the film are absolutely terrible!
Hayden Christensen and Natalie Portman had no chemistry!…
Your clones are very impressive. You must be very proud.
I'm sure I kinda liked this movie the first time I saw it. At least that's my recollection. It's biggest problem is without a doubt the so-called love story between Anakin and Padmé. Their scenes together are cringe inducing. These two people don't even look like they enjoy being in the same room together. The fact that Hayden Christensen comes off as incredibly creepy during these scenes just makes it all the more unbelievable when they finally do "fall in love".
The film is also filled with scenes and imagery that have a sole purpose of making you think of the original trilogy. Some of them have no logic…
The production design, storytelling, action, romance, drama,... are just awesome. It's a pity that all the backgrounds were made by computer, but the development of the universe is one of the greatest things in the movie. Also Padmé's wardrobe.
Just way too boring its sad, I'm shocked it couldnt have been better than the phantom menace that George Lucas says is one of his favourite movies now he's just completely lost it.
The Republic Divided Fanedit
Die Story um Obi Wan und Jango Fett ist interessant. Der andere Strang um Anakin ist schnulzig und trieft teilweise vor Schmalz. Das Ende actionreich und durchaus unterhaltsam.
Hayden Christensen hat das Charisma eines Baumes. Mir unbegreiflich, wie man den für diese wichtige Rolle besetzen konnte.
Kein Vergleich mit dem zweiten Teil der alten Trilogie (der einfach nur grandios ist). Aber durchaus anschaubar.
Like Episode I, Attack of the Clones offers top-notch entertainment. Also like Episode I, it has memorable moments and fascinating scenes as well as it is a showcase of terrific visual effects; and though there are some noticeable missteps along the way story-wise, I can't help liking it a lot. The first two installment of the Star Wars prequel trilogy are the weakest, but there are still so many good things to enjoy from them. Also, not letting myself be bothered much by Hayden Christensen's wooden acting is definitely a plus, and so was Jar-Jar Binks' reduced amount of time on the screen.
I have not watched this film since its theatrical release, nor have I been inclined to. But I doubt a rewatch would alter my opinion that it is the worst 'Star Wars' film thus far.
I don't know what's worst. Is it the screenplay? Is it Hayden Christensen? Is it the CGI? Is the fact that this is so fucking boring? Is it the fact that this exist?
What I do know is that George Lucas is a shitty filmmaker. Seriously dude, stay the fuck away from Episode: VII.
Somehow worse the The Phantom Menace. One of the most boring movies I've ever seen.
