Koray’s review published on Letterboxd:
This was super boring to watch and way too long for what it is. I'm sorry but I don't even remember half of it I got so bored while watching. Like what is the struggle between characters I don't get it. It feels like this exists to do two things.
1 - Establish that there is a clone army (super cool idea)
2 - Help show Anakin go mad
But honestly, both of these things could have been done in the 3rd movie instead. Too much nothingness was going on this whole movie and was pointless because I was able to watch the next one with only a fragmented memory of this one.
I genuinely feel like this movie exists just so we could have another trilogy to match the original. Don't even get me started on the politics because I genuinely wouldn't be able to talk about any of it. I don't remember it.
