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.

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…
Again, a case of very poor execution of a fantastic story. The soldier who feels more anger than he should is a dangerous thing. Episode II can't seem to focus on this in the right ways. The plot tells us why things happen and how they will change things in the future, but Django Fett, close, and Count Dooku are relagated to dismissed characters even though they influence the plot of the entire trilogy in a large way. Also, the CGI here is often bad. It was mindblowing to me that Episode I looked better then Attack of the Clones. If you've seen The Clone Wars show, this is a great supplement and softens the blow of how mismanaged the Star Wars saga is in Episode II.
George Lucas se volcó en dar gusto a los fans de la saga galáctico en la que acabó siendo la más floja de sus entregas.
Entretenida –que nadie tenga duda- y visualmente deslumbrante, presenta una pastelosa relación amorosa entre Anakin y Amidala que de tan previsible es casi impropia de un filme de una cierta categoría.
Con todo, se deja ver sin el menor problema.
Great action scenes, and some great characters, but very poor chemistry between Hayden Christensen and Natalie Portman, along with poor romantic dialogue significantly lower this film's rating. From a fan's point of view, this film does have a clever plot, and interesting backstory. However, for someone who is watching the prequel trilogy for the first time, they'll likely find this film confusing and hard to follow, as the plot relies heavily on the unseen backstory found in books, and canon internet sources/
The trilogy is certainly getting better. I thought that there was a bit too much frolocking around in the grass but the romance is actually quite a nice distraction. I'm actually getting quite excited at this point at what's to come.
I knew Obi-Wan trained Anakin but I did NOT know that he ends up with the princess turned senator. I know he isn't the same wide-eyed kid but... kind of gross. She doesn't age. Is she an alien?
And now the Storm Troopers are good guys? No wonder I get confused.
Attack of the Clones does several things: it introduces an older Anakin (who isn't convincing at all), a romantic plot (that isn't emtional at all), and a huge war (that isn't interesting at all due to lack of development).
I don’t know where to start. This is a different beast to The Phantom Menace, but it’s still excruciatingly dull.
We join our buddies Anakin and Obi-Wan about ten years on, where it appears they have developed a back story. They then get into loads of lightsaber fights and there are also loads of other people with lightsabers now.
Everyone in the film seems to know what’s going on, which means we don’t ever get an explanation. What results is a seemingly random sequence of polished CG imagery. It’s cold, senseless and really boring.
Nothing is good here. The action, the terrible love story, the writing, the acting… it’s all steeped in mediocrity.
Again, having just watched the old films, this is just sad to see. It’s a decent franchise, butchered by greed and a desire to sell crap tons of action figures. Ugh, only one more to go.
Bastant millor que l'Episodi I. L'evolució del conflicte polític és més que digne, fins i tot s'atreveix a imposar una mica més de tensió i aventura, però...ens topem amb el romanç més postís i forçat de la galàxia, un idil·li vergonyós i mandrosament explicat només apte de seguidors de telenovel·les de broc gròs.
Em resisteixo a exculpar a George Lucas de tot aquest despropòsit narratiu, d'aquest estira i afluixa de sagues no correlatives, tenint en compte que la imposició d'una estructura i d'un devenir conegut no són motiu per abandonar l'entreteniment i les ganes d'esgarrepar a les noves generacions; i més, sabent del catàleg de directors d'alt nivell capaços i amb les ganes i el talent suficient per fer de tot això el que haviat sigut fa molt molt de temps...
FROM MOVIE STUB COLLECTION
Pretty sure I had seen Episodes 1 and 3 in theaters also but I guess I lost the stubs for those.
Anyway, this was a major disappointment. The whole prequel trilogy was disappointing. It makes me sad that the Star Wars movies I got to see on the big screen were the worst ones. Hopefully J.J. can bring a resurgence to the quality of the Star Wars franchise.
