Star Wars: Attack of the Clones is alright, but there's too much romantic stuff between Anakin Skywalker and Padme' Amidala. There are also a couple curse words. Also, there's quite a bit of violence as well. First off, battle droids and clone troopers are shot throughout the film (no blood is shown). Also, the battle scene between Obi-Wan Kenobi and Jango Fett is quite intense. In the end of the scene, Fett wins by shooting Obi-Wan with his ship (no blood). After that, Obi-Wan, Anakin, and Padme' are brought to be executed by beasts that may be frightening to kids. One of the beasts attacks Padme' and scratches her. (some blood is shown). Soon after, (*SPOILER ALERT!*) Jango Fett kills one of the beasts, the reek, by shooting it. Mace Windu then attacks Fett and kills him by cutting off his head with his lightsaber. That's probably the most violent scene. Jango's son, Boba, mourns his father's death. This may be emotional. Towards the end of the movie, Count Dooku (the villain) fights Obi-Wan and Anakin with his lightsaber. Dooku first electrocutes Anakin (the electricity emerges from the tips of his fingers). Dooku also injures Obi-Wan by cutting part of his leg and arm (no blood is shown, just smoke from the injury). Anakin then fights Dooku by himself, but Dooku (*SPOILER ALERT!*) slashes Anakin's hand off with his lightsaber. Yoda then arrives and fights Dooku as well, though there are no injuries in this battle. Dooku escapes and flies to his master, Darth Sidious. Sidious also may be frightening to younger viewers. This movie definitely has a more darker tone than the Phantom Menace.
Recommended rating: PG-13 for sequences of sci-fi violence, mild language, and some romance.
