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.

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

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.

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.

This movie proves that you can have a movie with an unlimited amount of action without having to throw in any unnecessary gore. The action is pretty much non-stop, but you won't see anything that warrants a higher rating. The only part that I would consider disturbing is a scene where the main character describes what he did to get revenge. There is also a little innuendo in one scene. The love story is innocent for the most part, but in one scene the two main characters realize they have feelings for each other but don't know where to go from there. He tells her, "We could keep it a secret." I couldn't tell weather he was talking about keeping their feelings a secret, or if he was talking about an affair. It's more likely he meant the former, but during that particular scene I couldn't tell.
