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…

Attack of the Clones, the worst of the episodic Star Wars films, is a boring and pointless love story. Littered with even worse performances and even cheesier dialogue than in Episode I, this film has no reason to exist and was a complete disappointment for Star Wars fans and moviegoers in general.
It's the worst one, but there's still some good stuff in here. My opinion changes every time I watch it.
Jango Fett and the clones drew me in as a kid, but the overblown use of CGI pushed me away as an adult.
the scene where obi-wan, yoda, and the young padawans look at a map of the galaxy is the most beautiful moment in all of cinema
Perhaps an unintential poke at American politics? Lucas hints at corruption within the Senate, the ever sinister Palpatine, and he doesn't make it light. It's all consuming, engulfing our heroes as they follow an unacknowldged evil leader. Some might see what their blind followship causes, but that doesn't matter. It's all about sticking to what we're told if even we know it's not right. Conforming to a society, as corrupt as it can ever be.

Star Wars Episode II - Attack of the Clones... This movie is a bit hard for me to really discuss in concise points because I am of two minds about it. It features some really cool action sequences. Jango Fett (the better Fett) is in the movie and awesome. Ewan McGregor really steps into the role of Obi-Wan after being absent for a large portion of Episode I. When I was 10 years old, watching this movie in the theater with my family, I was blown away by the sight of SO MANY Jedi showing up and then that was topped off by a giant war with droids and clones. The whole final act was mind blowing to my young…
In my opinion one of the best Star Wars movies out of the entire saga. There's enough action, intrigue, suspense, and creativity to keep one entertained. Every time I think of Star Wars, this movie comes to mind. The only parts I can't stand is the forced romance between Anikan and Padame. But other than that, this one of my favorite movies of all time.
