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?"
'Suck very much, it does, yes?'

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?
Star Wars: Episode II-Attack of the Clones is the second of the Star Wars prequels and one that in my opinion, just about beats that of it's previous film in the series. The story is upped quite a bit from Phantom and much more is going on here and there and everywhere throughout the galaxies, with much more fight scenes, an interesting mystery running through the film and of course, more lightsabers. Overall I felt it was just about an OK movie, and here below is why.
The story is fast paced, lots goes on in a quite long movie though and so the film truly gets what it wants to get out in the right amount of time. The…
I always remembered this as the most enjoyable of all the sequels and I now know how terribly wrong I was. This barely stands above Phantom Menace. You would think this would be a pretty easy task to accomplish, but Lucas continues to prove how talentless he has gotten since the original Star Wars.
With the first hour and a half explaining so much of the Star Wars universe and yet so little of it with countless lines of ill-written dialogue, it's nearly impossible to sit completely interested throughout the entirety of this film. This is where I think The Phantom Menace actually manages to succeed. While The Phantom Menace follows the same formula of terrible dialogue bogged middle section…
Anakin is so handsome I dont care hahhaha
Just fuck off.
O que falar de Star Wars? Precisa?
É impossível tentar sintetizar em review uma série que transcendeu a condição de filme e se estabeleceu como cultura na Indústria Pop mundial. Uma franquia que praticamente inventou o gênero blockbuster e que dispensa qualquer apresentação.
É, Star Wars influenciou tanta coisa, que sua importância é incontestável. E mesmo os filmes mais recentes, criticados por alguns, têm seu mérito, por terem sido a porta de entrada para uma nova geração de apaixonados pelo universo de George Lucas. E que universo! Recheado de personagens icônicos e carismáticos. Até mesmo os vilões são idolatrados. O que falar de Darth Vader, por exemplo? O vilão dos vilões!
O que me resta é, pelo menos, tentar atribuir…
Repasando la trilogia precuelera.
Another re-watch, this time on a giant home theatre. Worth it.
Qué fatal que a pesar de ser una precuela todo parezca mil veces más moderno que en las películas originales; qué sobrantes las escenas de Anakin y Padme retozando por las praderas de Cantabria; qué absurda la cantidad de tiempo que le dedican a R2 y C3 como secundarios cómicos; y qué aburridas las batallitas y la fábrica de droides, ¡y pensar que estaba esperando algo de acción!.
Aún así podría haber sido peor.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Now the space fairytale turned into a soap opera. Too much love story, too little space battle. And where is the ATTACK OF THE CLONES? I waited 2 hours for those clones to attack and all I received is a 2-minutes clones'battle which was more a rescue operation?! The only nice characters are the robots. And master Yoda, of course.
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…
