Awesome! But not as good as revenge of the sith.

Really awesome movie but kind of innapropriate because padme and Anakin do some kissing and also a lot of "oh Anakin i love you so much" or "by heart is beating, hoping that this kiss will not become a scar. You are in my very soul tormenting me" kind of talk. For older kids, It's definitely not as good as revenge of the sith but still good. I would also be a little concerned about violence for the younger ones.

Best movie ever

BEST MOVIE EVER!!!!! it's sooooo good. the visual effects are awesome and the action is really fun and not that graphic. the most epic scene is the beginning of the Clone Wars on Geinosis and the arena fight. also on Geinosis. same with the amazing droid factory scene. again on Geinosis. i really like the beginning with Obi-Wan and Anakin chase Zam Wessel through the streets of Coroscant. Anakin also slaughters Tuskin Raiders in a scene but it's not shown

Excellent Movie

I love this movie, and I hardly understood it (you can still trust my report). The violence is where Count Dooku cuts Anakin's arm off. That's pretty much it (there are other scenes with a tad of violence). The language is a bit stiff (but not too stiff). Overall an excellent movie.

great movie!! i loved it!

i love this movie, because it's about the clone troopers. i would say this movie is not for kids under 12 or 11 years because it has a lot of battle and you see how somebody's head gets cut of.

Not the best movie in the saga, but good

This movie was good, but not as good as the others. For one thing, the love scenes between Anakin and Padme were too long. I think the scenes should have been shortened a little, since the movie is more about action rather than romance. Also, the acting isn't the best, especially from Hayden. But as the story progresses it gets better, like during the arena battle. Violence: As expected from Star Wars, lots of violence involving blasters, lightsabers, and even some deaths-but no blood (that I recall). Sex: Anakin and Padme start to fall in love and eventually kiss. Padme wears some revealing outfits. Drinking/Drugs: One scene takes place in a bar, but no one's drunk.

OK

this movie was OK it still had boring political talk but it also had some awesome action, like the geonosis battle and anakin vs dooku. there isn't much real violence just lightsabers and blasters, but a character gets dicapitated and an arm gets cut off. but it is still ok.

Overall - Mild content

Violence: Mild - There is a brief sequence where one of the main characters bloodlessly kills a number of human-like creatures (this is very brief and mostly off-screen). Another main character also becomes wounded after receiving a scratch from a large tiger-like creature and another character is bloodlessly decapitated. A head-but is administered by one of the main characters to another character and there are various battle scenes (one of which includes a main character's hand being cut of by a 'lightsaber') where creatures are killed bloodlessly. A character is shot and killed by a dart (we hear the noise but to do not see the dart). None of these scenes have a major impact and are only mildly intense. Sex/Nudity: None (Although there is an ongoing 'forbidden' relationship between two of the main characters which is only mildly intense in some scenes). Horror: Mild - A character witnesses the death of his mother (she is not killed but is dying from becoming too weary after being captured) but despite being the most emotionally intense thing in the film this is still brief and discreet. The characters are menaced by (and, in the case of one character, hurt by) animal-like creatures in a colosseum. Characters are taken by surprise in a tunnel full of creatures armed with 'laser-beam guns'. A young character mourns his dead father who has been decapitated (he holds his father's head, concealed by a helmet, in his hands). All of these scenes/sequences are either brief or handled with a mild intensity. Language: None. Drugs/Alcohol: Very mild - Someone tries to sell one the main characters "death sticks" (presumably a type of drug) which he declines and advises the seller (through mind-control) to "go home and re-think his life". It is unlikely that this will be of any concern to children. Overall: Mild themes. There are some moderate concepts addressed such as dealing with the loss of a parent which may well lead to questions being asked by more inquisitive children. These are, however, handled briefly and within the context of fantasy. Younger children may also be frightened by the creatures in the colosseum.

Sequel is fairly better but much more intense then the first

My rating:PG-13 for sequences of violence and action and intense images
Teen, 14 years old Written byFathomT December 17, 2015

My least favorite

The one dimensional characters, wooden acting, and stilted dialogue of Phantom Menace remain, but this time, George Lucas decided to torture us with a romance between two characters who's actors have NO CHEMISTRY AT ALL!!! There are action sequences that are fun, but the rest of the film is excruciating. There is about the same amount of violence as the first one, but there are some bad takeaways as well. In my opinion, the franchise's view of romantic love as a distraction is one of the worst messages that they could possibly send to children! This one is less unnecessarily loved by children than the first one, but Star Wars obsessed children may rewatch.

Not a great movie at all, but still entertaining.

I wouldn't say complete failure but either the acting or the script seems to fake and unreal. Hayden Christensen IS 100% the wrong cast, and Padme has gone down in anticipations. Your body is all tense (with the wrong kind of tenseness for a movie) except for C3PO and R2D2 who provided the needed relief. Padme wears many types of dresses, some reveal (as do many others). some passionate kissing and (very) sexual intercourse and conversations. Violence is expected. May be frightening at some parts.

Not appropriate. Should have been rated PG-13.

A villain is decapitated, loads of people die, one being a main character's mother, that main character's mother is very sad, a lot of aliens are murdered in one scene, although most of it is off screen it is mentioned that even some alien children were killed, lots of creepy sexual dialog since this movie is part time a love story and a woman's a** can be scene in a bar scene. I don't suggest teens and adults watch this movie either. The dialog is bad and 99% of the movie is computer generated. Skip this. Skip all the prequels.

attack of the clones

My favorite prequel. This blockbuster is action packed and very entertaining. Some intense scenes but overall mild, this movie is good for young tweens and adults.

Romance and action

Lots of action and romance. As a matter of fact, my mother loves both of them. She likes to see Anakin and Padme kiss and see Mace Windu become a badass during the Geonosis Arena battle.

Women dress in see-through clothes.

Anakin and Obi-Wan enter a bar, and several women are dress in revealing outfits, with breasts visible and vaginas barely covered.

Acting is crap

The action is great and plot and characters are well done but romance and the chemistry between characters is terrible and the acting is the worst I have ever seen.
Teen, 13 years old Written byQueenOfSciFi October 12, 2016

Better Than Before--But Still Mediocre

Is this film better than The Phantom Menace? Yes, by a long shot. But it still doesn't match up with the original trilogy. This movie isn't as "cringey" as its predecessor and the plot is decent, but it's still quite cheesy--the dull romance and peculiar relationships between the characters may be a bore for children (or adults, honestly). The fighting scenes are impressive enough and Ewan McGregor's portrayal of Obi-Wan Kenobi is interesting in itself. Plus, there's no more Jar Jar Binks. (Phew)

Lovey-dovey second installment is still going strong!

The second movie in the Star Wars prequel trilogy, Attack of the Clones centers on Anakin Skywalker as a young man, whereas he was a small boy in the Phantom Menace. Anakin and Padme's heart-softening romance is an essential subplot, and spoiler alert, but they eventually marry, which is the worst mistake ever to be made in a Star Wars movie IMO because the other Jedi can sense via the Force that Anakin is secretly getting married, unless Anakin can block the Force like Chancellor Palpatine did before he revealed that he was on the Sith side. Or maybe the planet Anakin and Padme's married on was Force-free.
