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

When George returned to his prequel trilogy with the second chapter, many were skeptical. To most, The Phantom Menace was atrocious.
So obviously, many didn't think Episode II would be any better.
Thankfully it was. And thankfully, people started giving the prequels their much deserved love.
Though I truly love Episode I, there is an obvious improvement over many aspects. The story and action/battle sequences flow with much more grace.
The acting this time around is more direct and more precise. As is Lucas' direction.
Here, we are witnessing young Skywalker as a troubled teen Padawan. He's not fully an adult. He's not fully a Jedi. That meaning, he obviously does not get as much recognition for his efforts. Which…
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…
star wars marathon day two. story gets better. acting not so much unfortunately.
The worst of the prequel trilogy. Partly because of Hayden Christensen's atrocious hair. Seriously, dude, get that taken care of. Though Yoda's lightsaber fight with Count Dooku is worth the price of admission alone.
This was ok. The love story was painful to watch. Jango getting killed off in a clash quickly was a bit disappointing. We at least see the rise of the empire and the Jedi for what they are worth... killing all who disagree with them. <-- true story.. search your feelings.. you know it to be true.
I may have to add a star to my rating after watching this with my 7-year-old.
Honestly I don't know where I am on this movie. The over use of cgi really gets to me and it is campy in a couple scenes. The fight scenes are epic and entertaining to watch. I think I'm supposed to watch this again with some friends in a couple of weeks. So, I may go more into depth then.
Every scene with Anakin & Padme makes me want to force choke myself..
But the chase through the city, the Geonosian Battle and the Fett's makes me tolerate and even like Episode II a bit!
I hadn't seen Attack of the Clones since its release and while I remember thinking at the time that it was an improvement over The Phantom Menace, now I'm not so sure. Granted, it's visually spectacular, the story's a bit darker and more complex than the first film and best of all, Jar Jar's scenes are kept to a minimum... but there's a lot that's wrong with this film. It's overlong for one thing... I've got nothing against a 142 minute story, but this one just feels long. The action bits are well done but most of the scenes that deal with character building and political intrigue seem to drag. Even so, they work wonderfully well compared to the awful…
Now this is more like it Lucas. After establishing what our favourite characters, and Jar Jar have been up to since the Battle for Naboo, we are treated to a colourful, fast paced chase sequence thought the Coruscant rush hour. Episode 2 then hits a nice little groove as Obi-Wan turns detective and Anakin and Padme get freaky deaky. The action packed finale is genuinely exciting and ends the entire affair with a big bang.
While admittedly a little CGI heavy, the effects thankfully hold up this time round and the sound design and visuals are as beautiful as anything the saga has to offer. The rented baby blue looked crisp, vivid and the sound quality was noticeably improved when…
I have to get these out of the way at some point.

Most of these aren't NEARLY as bad as everyone makes them out to be on here. And I don't particularly…
