Star Wars: The Clone Wars
Set between Episode II and III the Clone Wars is the first computer animated Star Wars film. Anakin and Obi Wan must find out who kidnapped Jabba the Hutts son and return him safely. The Seperatists will try anything to stop them and ruin any chance of a diplomatic agreement between the Hutt's and the Republic.
Jar Jar Binks is widely regarded as the most annoying character in the Star Wars Universe. Well I've just found someone even more annoying: Ahsoka Tano.
"True to the spirit of Star Wars"...
"This film is not!"
Following the end of the Star Wars prequel trilogy in 2005, George Lucas realised there was a whole other avenue to explore in order to milk his cash cow: animation. Many other franchises--Star Trek, Batman, X-Men--had dabbled in animated series but Star Wars had never taken the plunge beyond video game tie-ins being the closest. Seeing a narrative gap that also could be exploited, the several year gap between Episodes II & III which held the long-discussed but never seen Clone Wars in its continuity, Lucas knew it was fate: a Clone Wars TV-series telling this story he'd had to skip across between his major prequel movies. Episodes began to be produced by LucasFilm and Lucas became so impressed by what…
This is a thinly veiled 4-Part pilot movie for the CGI television series "Star Wars: The Clone Wars" and as four arcing episodes of a CGI television show its alright. However as a Star Wars film it simply doesn't work. It doesn't act as bridge between Episode II or III. The story arc while concise isn't very interesting or important even in the grand scheme of the Star Wars universe. The only reason this was given a theatrical release is because George Lucas thought these episodes were so high quality that they deserved to be (I'm really starting to question his artistic vision).
But on a more positive note this does make me want to watch the series this movie…
Why was this made? I am really serious when I ask that question. Some terrible voice acting and uninteresting dialogue really make this movie not worth while. These characters seem to be so bland and boring which is wierd since they're not in the original films. The animation looks so cheesy and cheap and the story isn't all that entertaining either. It lacks humor, cool-looking visuals and even the fun that the other films have. I know I'm ripping off this so much but the fact that this is in connection to one of the best film sagas of all time is pretty amazing. Probably 2008's worst film.

The plot of The Clone Wars isn’t complex. The nefarious Count Dooku (voiced by Christopher Lee reprising his role from Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith) has kidnapped Jabba the Hutt’s son Rotta, later dubbed Stinky. After leading a regiment of clone troopers to victory over the droid army, Obi-Wan Kenobi (James Arnold Taylor) and Anakin Skywalker (Matt Lanter) must find Jabba’s son so they can strike a treaty with the Hutt that will allow them to have a tactical advantage in the ongoing Clone War. As a complication, Anakin has been assigned his own Padawan student, Ahsoka Tano (Ashley Eckstein). From the opening frames, it’s obvious that Star Wars: The Clone Wars…
You know it's going to be bad when it doesn't even have an opening crawl.
This is actually miserable. I like all things Star Wars and this movie just punched me where it hurt. That said, the full TV series for Clone Wars is INCREDIBLE, especially toward the end so just skip this and watch that TV series and you'll be fine and appreciate the characters introduced therein.
the jabba/stinky father-son bond as the emotional center of the Star Wars universe
Based on the strength of "Rebels" and its end season reveal I thought I would give its predecessor a shot rather than dismissing it as cash grab pablum.
Oh my. What a terrible film. The stakes are so low that they would barely motivate a 22 minute episode let alone an hour and a half feature. Rather than being a tight feature with a strong driving story, it seems clear that the film was plotted as 3 extended episodes loosely tied together by the Huttlet (I hate that i just typed that word) MacGuffin. And by "extended" I mean jam packed with weightless battle filler rather than character or plot development. Each act until the last few minutes is the…
'Star Wars: The Clone Wars'... shouldn't have been a theatrical release. This is nothing more than a TV movie that serves as the pilot for the 2008 'Clone Wars' TV series, which thankfully turned out much better. This was just meant to be the first few episodes of the series until George Lucas decided to have this put in theaters... and that is definitely clear when watching this film. The animation is fine in the action sequences but drops in quality in non-action sequences. The opening sequence of the film has nothing to do with the overall plot of the film. It's just there because they needed to introduce the character Ahsoka Tano, Anakin's new Padawan. Ultimately I'm not as…
So I've started listening to the Star Wars minute podcast. Thus, I got a hankering to watch me some Star Wars.
Only problems is: I'm moving in a few days, and all my DVDs are in taped up boxes.
This thing was on Netflix, so I watched it instead.
You ever want good sushi, but can't get any? So you get gas station sushi instead?
This was kinda like that.
A great launch for the TV series. But it doesn't hold it's own weight outside of that. Overall, the following TV show was a lot better.
If one were to watch the prequel films in their episodic order, this 'hors-series' installment surpasses the first two films on a variety of levels. Time and the animated series that was subsequently launched bearing the same name, visual style and voice actors have been much kinder for this film, though I can understand the initial negative reception. Worth a shot if you're a fan of the animated series.
A list of films that incorporate the Wilhelm Scream. I haven't seen all of these so if you can help…
Probably of little interest to anybody but me, here is my personal film collection on various formats that I've collected…
