Best Star Wars Movie Ever!

I believe that this is the best Star Wars movie ever! Watch it see why. There are two parts that might bother children: the first is when Anakin's mother dies and the second is when Boba Fett's dad dies. But other than that, it is a wonderful movie, filled with action adventure and humor. Great for the whole family!

Cool

If you don't like it wait a half year and you'll love it. If you haven't seen it than careful there is a violent scene tons of sci-fi action and some senualty theres a girls butt in the beginning.

Forced plot and awkward. The credibility of the prequel shows it's lack of depth here..

Easily the worst in the entire series the awkward and nary innappropriate relationship between Anakin and Padme seemed forced and unatural. You can almost 'feel' Lucas squeezing in some half baked reasoning into why this "should be" plausable but is never anywhere near convincing. Even a scene with Padme sporting near fetish style leather with some embarrassingly poor dialogue about forbidden love seems to epitomize the loopholes and the force fed scripting as Lucas desperately attempts to make this thing work. If it wasn't for the franchise name and necessity to watch it for plot points pertaining to the series this movie would be highly skippable aside from the novelty of a few nostalgic moments such as Yodas first time out with a lightsaber. The milking of the brand name definitely shows up here and is a regretable chapter in the series despite it's inevitable necessity whatever it's lack of quality is in execution ended up being. Now knowing that Disney has bought out the series we can only hope the third trilogy doesn't have the layers of cheese they add to the cartoons they half baked ala classic Disney style. But looking at this installment it can't get much worse either.

Too Long

They needed to cut out some of the romance scenes that were shown back to back. 7+

A Good Prequel Sequel with Great Visuals and Effects!

ATTACK OF THE ClONES is great. Some aspects of the movie are wooden, like the "romantic" dialouge between Portman and Christianson. And just Christianson himself. But don't worry. His character is better to watch in Episode 3. But the effects are amazing, and Christianson is really the only actor who isn't that good. Many people have panned Portman for her role, but really she didn't have that much to work with. Some standout actors are Ewan McGregor as Obi-Wan, Christopher Lee as Count Dooku, and Samuel L, Jackson as Mace Windu. Violence is more intense than in the previous films. Humans, among robots, are shot, maimed, and stabbed non-graphically. One character is decapitated bloodlessly. There is some romantic tension between Portman and Christianson, but nothing sexual. No language or drugs. Characters are loyal to each other and are willing to die to save their friends. Highly recommended.

Star Wars: Episode II - Attack Of The Clones

This is the film that changed everything. It made the trilogy go from (really good) to (really bad). This is still worth watching, but definitely not as good as the previous instalments. Anakin is now 20 years-old and a romance is formed between Anakin and Padme. A good film :) My Classification: PG - Stylised Violence, Adult Themes

Extremely boring and dull sci-fi movie will please kids, but not actual SW fans!

You know what's even worse than The Phantom Menace? Attack of the Clones is! There is absolutely nothing entertaining in this movie! Plus it has one of the most uninteresting and forced love stories in motion picture history, and Jar Jar Binks, can he just be gone?

Didn't like the movie as much as the first but still exiting

Movie wasn't great or bad. It was average. It still had dark parts. Anakin gets his arm chopped off. Obi wan is now a Jedi knight. Count dooku joins the dark side. Pad e and anakin get married

THIS IS AMAZING!!

Overall, a good movie. There are some intense scenes, and there was quite a bit of romance. Other than that, it's a family-friendly movie.

OUTSTANDING

Incredibly, but romance will bore young ones, but i love this one but yes, it's a little sexy, but of course like them all, it's full of heavy Sci-fi violence uses of words like "h-ll" or "d-mn" but not insultive

The weakest of the prequel movies

Episode 2 is perfectly ok for kids though maybe a little too violent for any under 8. Also it will entertain them more than adults as the film lacks the umph of all the others. It seems sloppy and jumps between the weak romance scenes and battle scenes constantly, though the battle scenes are admittably visually stunning. The dialogue is lacking and the chemistry between Ewan McGregor and Liam Neeson is replaced with the wooden droning of Hayden Christensen. The lightsabre battle at the climax of the film is a good chance to see Yoda do his stuff but it's nowhere near as satisfying as the threeway battle in episode 1 - it also seems too short.
