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

and yeah i know i don't HATE the prequels as much as I used to...
but i still very much dislike this movie.
in my eyes, its more of tech demo for digital filmmaking than a coherent, engaging story where the visual serve the experience. the visuals solely are (or WERE, this movie aged very poorly) the experience.
I truly, deeply, fucking hate Attack of the Clones even way more than Anakin hates the fucking sand. I mean Jesus Christ the love dialogue is atrocious. The chemistry between Anakin and Padme is just terrible. Hayden Christensen as Anakin Skywalker in this movie is just terrible and he’s nothing but a whiney bitch throughout the entire time. Anakin and Obi-Wan bitch at each other throughout most of the movie and you never felt like they were even friends. Ewan McGregor as Obi-Wan Kenobi remains to be the best thing about the prequels and Christopher Lee is fine as Count Dookoo. The CGI is even worse than it was in The Phantom Menace. Sure there’s less Jar Jar Binks but at least The Phantom Menace didn’t have atrocious love dialogue.
Stop me if you've heard this one... More like Attack of the Groans.
good enough for a star war
I unrepentantly like this movie. No shame. The Anakin/Obi-Wan banter is great, and I always wish there was more of it. Watching Anakin's growth from slave boy to arrogant young Jedi, knowing that he'll soon fall to the Dark Side, is painful. But necessary, I suppose. And all the action scenes in this movie are fantastic. I love them.
However, Padme and Anakin's romantic scenes always make me cringe mrrreeee. These are some of the worst written lines imaginable. But it's all part of the experience I guess??
not unbearable! the padme/anakin scenes belong in the trash though
Both Kanye and Anakin changed after their moms died...

This surely crossed the line between how much CGI a movie can have and still be called live-action.
So I'll say that this is an animated movie, and therefore refuse it as real starwars cannon.
