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

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?
Lembro de ter visto este filme do meio da segunda trilogia num cinema lotado e o que me fez desgostar à primeira vista foi a imagem digital escolhida por George Lucas, sempre puxando para uma determinada escuridão. Apesar disso, numa segunda revisão, muitos anos depois, estou mais inclinado a considerar, depois de um vazio de boas ficções científicas, que esta segunda trilogia de “Star Wars” tem problemas, mas o principal, realmente, é ser comparado com a primeira. Os atores estão um tanto engessados pelo roteiro, e Hayden Christensen é uma escolha não tão acertada para Anakin Skywalker: ainda assim, quem faria melhor com os diálogos entregues, de uma simplicidade visível e que Harrison Ford certamente não seguiria? Bem, até Christensen…
Liking this film has changed my perception of everything. Thought I hated it.
Aus den Fehlern des ersten Teils lernend, präsentiert sich 'Star Wars Episode II: Angriff der Klonkrieger' schon deutlich erwachsener und ernsthafter, verzichtet überwiegend auf Slapstick und platten Humor, schlägt gleichwohl die Bresche zwischen dem kinderfreundlichen ersten und dem düsteren dritten Teil, lässt aber ebenso manchmal eine stringente Ausrichtung vermissen, denn trotz zahlreicher gelungener Versatzstücke vermag es George Lucas leider nicht, seine Saga in einen stimmigen Kontext zu setzen.
Mehr gibt es unter:
'She can't do that! Shoot her or something!'
The Phantom Menace takes a lot of stick for taking Star Wars and splattering it with a money-grabbing commercialism and a total disregard for the logic of the original trilogy. And in terms of how disappointing it is, and how badly it impacts the original films, its the worst of the prequels. But as a film in its own right, Attack of the Clones is abysmal.
The acting is atrocious. Hayden Christensen doesn't have much to work with in terms of the script, but his delivery is consistently terrible. This is surprising given how inconsistent Anakin's character is. Ewan McGregor is trying too hard to have the gravitas of Alec Guinness, while…
Best of the new films. Yoda was involved more and his fight scenes earned this film half a star more. The back story was developed more and that gave it a new twist. Plus the special effects are better.
"Mmm. Lost a planet, Master Obi-Wan has. How embarrassing. How embarrassing."
Μηδέν χημεία μεταξύ των πρωταγωνιστών,CGI χειρότερα και από μικρού budget 3D Animation ταινίας,και ο χειρότερος που πέρασε από το franchise στο πρόσωπο του Hayden Christensen.Η μόνη βελτίωση από την πρώτη ταινία,είναι η περισσότερη δράση που έχει.
Υ.Γ:Τελικά ο Ewan McGregor μπορεί να γίνει badass και δεν του το'χα.
Pretty easily the worst of the prequels (and that's saying something). So much of it was just gratingly, cringe-inducingly bad.
In puncto Handlung,Technik, Jedi Kämpfe und Schlachten dem Vorgänger überlegen. Der Film zieht sich teilweise immer noch ein wenig hin, wirkt aber nicht mehr so gezwungen komisch oder nervig, weil Jar Jar Gott sei Dank in die Politik verbannt wurde.
Epischer Jedi Kampf zwischen Joda und Count Dooku!
Epische Kleidung von Padme Amdala!
