Better than episode 1

Not as good as the originals but I still liked it. The romance didn't didn't go past kissing and was better than episode 1.

Okay, but could be better

It's the second worst movie in the Star Wars saga (the worst being The Phantom Menace) Too much love scenes made the whole thing boring, althought the rest of them are awesome. It's quite violent. There is that scene which Anakin goes killing the sandpeople, because he's full of anger. Not that ok for younglings ;)

Not for kids but great!

Attack of the clones is the 2nd most intense in the series It is also pretty violent the part when the mom died is the By far worst part and will scare the crap out of young kids and when jango fett gets Padme and obi wan and annikin and they battle these monsters is also pretty intense but best star wars movie

The best in the prequel trilogy!

This was a minor improvement over The Phantom Menace, and I could easily call it my favorite Star Wars prequel. The action is much more combat-related than in The Phantom Menace, and it is also more violent and jarring, plus there is more language, like "d*mn" and "h*ll". But the tone is still calm enough for young kids. Also, one of the major characters, Jango Fett, is my all-time favorite Star Wars character. But the romantic relationship between Anakin and Padmé is rather boring and clumsily performed, as is the acting. On the other hand, some fans may find this more pleasing than the first prequel due to the fact that the annoying comic relief Jar Jar Binks rarely appears. It also provides a strikingly dedicated performance from Christopher Lee. A very good addition to the trilogy!

Gorey,bloody,but good

Well,a boy is shot and killed and someone's Mom dies.Anakin gets angry and murders the people who killed her.Anakin's hand is chopped off,the same happens to Jango's head. Jango kills many,many people.So does Zam and Dooku.Blood is splattered from a main chacter's face.Blood and gore is very visible in this film.So expect lots of violince.On the other hand,there is swearing,they say f**k d**n a*s h**l and someone says there pi**ed out at another chacter bye!

Love it

Warning: Spoilers! Good film. Possibly the best prequel. It is sort of violent. There is a long battle sequence between droids and the Jedi. Anakin, Obi-wan and Yoda all duel with Dooku. Anakin's arm is cut off and Jango Fett is decapitated. Also, Anakin's mother is shown dying as well as Padmé's female bodyguard. These are the only instances of blood. Violence aside, this is probably the most sexual star wars film. Nothing explicit just lots of mild flirting. Padmé's outfits however are rather unmodest. Most notably there is one wich reveals her entire back and another that shows almost the entire upper halves of her breasts. This is accentuated by the fact that her chest swells dramatically as she breaths. Also later she wears a skin tight suit that is ripped to show off her stomach. All the things I've mentioned really aren't that bad. It's really a rather kid friendly film and very entertaining.

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

Second Prequel is good, not outstanding

The Attack of the Clones is better than The Phantom Menace. The story is more involving and I finally see the Darth Vader coming out of Anakin. It is mostly used as a transitional device to the final prequel, but still fun entertainment. Note to parents: The movie does not contain any more violence than The Phantom Menace, so if they were not bothered by that, then I suppose Attack of the Clones is okay for them.

A whole lot more intense than "The Phantom Menace"; not all that much better, though less slow.

My rating: PG for sequences of sci-fi action/violence and peril.

Not the best Star Wars film, but worth watching

Some intimate kissing, violence. Not the best Star Wars film, but Natalie Portman is great. Some of the violence, while less than the other Star Wars films, may be too intense

My second favorite Star Wars.

Genius like all the movies, but a little more violent than episodes 1,4,5, and 6. Episode 3 is more violent. The worst part is a battle scene near the end. Genius. Iffy for 5+

A thrill from start to finish

Anakin breaks rules by becoming more than a friend with Padme. Also Anakin goes violent after his mother is killed. Still a great entry in the series and worth a watch.

Good movie.

I loved this movie, but it was a little to mushy with lots of kissing. there is also sci-fi violence that would be innapropriate if it was about like real warfare.

In With the Old, Out With the New

This was an ok movie, but it had a lot of separate stories that were just not needed. Shmi Skywalker was slightly needed for the 3rd Episode, but you really didn't need to have a bounty hunter. Just go a little more straight and get down to business.
