A separatist movement encompassing hundreds of planets and powerful corporate alliances poses new threats to the galaxy that even the Jedi cannot stem. These moves, long planned by an as yet unrevealed and powerful force, lead to the beginning of the Clone Wars -- and the beginning of the end of the Republic.

View All Critic Reviews Jul 21, To all the prequel apologists who say the sequel trilogy is the worst thing to happen to Star Wars, please, watch this movie again. Okay look, I spent years hating this movie and building up that loathing, and watching it again…yeah, it's earned.
But there are things in it that are okay, and better than I remember. Obi Wan's investigating is a little more interesting, even if it all feels like vague set up for the inevitable TV show. Jango Fett is still cool, if not a little underutilized. I'll even make a modest defense for some of Anakin's moments of turning, like the bit with the Tusken Raiders that's actually more well put together than I remember. But overall, yeah, it's a mess. It all feels like exposition and set up for future entries rather than its own thing, and it just makes the movie kind of boring.
When we do have action scenes, they're okay, but just okay. Some of the action pieces actually feel like they go on forever. Maybe they're making up for all the talking, but when stuff does go down, it's fun for a little while but gets boring fast. And then there's Anakin and Padme. God damn it do I hate Anakin and Padme! Padme's actually a more competent character than I remember her being, and I like seeing her hold her own in the action set pieces. That just makes it even more annoying when she falls head over heels for the angst king himself Anakin.
Hayden Christensen is not a good actor. Even when I've seen him in good movies, he's awful, I don't like him. A large chunk of this movie is just Anakin whining and complaining that things "aren't fair" in Christensen's dull monotone, and then aggressively cringey romantic scenes with him and Padme. It's a tough sit for most of this movie. There are glimmers of that Star Wars fun here and there.
Seeing a bunch of Jedi at the end is cool, the worlds are unique, and Ewan McGregor is always good. But if I never see this one again, I'll be fine. Michael M Super Reviewer. Dec 30, I'm not a diehard Star Wars fan. I've seen all the movies, seen them all more than once even, and I have my opinions, but when I see the way people talk about Star Wars online, I can't really find myself behaving the way that "true fans" or whathaveyou do.
That being said, I think that the majority of the Star Wars films have been pretty good. The notable exception to this, for me at least, is the prequels. And yes you can include the animated Clone Wars movie that they made in that era too. These four movies, again, for me, are all bad.
But even amongst them, there is still a ranking in my mind, and in that list, at the very bottom sits Attack of the Clones. Yes it is this movie which holds the title, of the very worst Star Wars theatrical release of all time. Gimly M Super Reviewer. Jun 22, This was George Lucas's attempt to appease the fans for what he did in Episode I. Despite the film being better, it still felt a little flat.
The story deepened a bit and Ewan McGregor still turned in a very strong performance as Obi Wan Kenobi, but Hayden Christensen's performance as Anakin Skywalker seemed very "emo" and whiny. Maybe this was the director and the script's fault, but Christensen turned many including myself off to this character.
Best part of the film is the Count Dooku lightsaber duel at the end of the film. Many did NOT see it coming and it was pretty enjoyable. Patrick W Super Reviewer. Mar 26, Attack of the Clones is singlehandley saved by a stunningly spectacular final act that is both thrilling and fun. The rest of the film slogs with horrible pacing, wooden acting and a tonally confused script that never reaches the heights it wants to achieve.

Walk your giant, digitized Jedi to the right until the screen stops. Enemies pop out. Try to defeat them using the syrupy control scheme.
Repeat indefinitely. The occasional 3D flying levels or minigame diversions don't help either, since these modes suck as well. Occasional samples of John Williams' score provide an excellent soundtrack, but you can buy a CD for much less. Avoid at all costs. The force is in all of us, or so the lore goes in the Star Wars universe. Too bad some of that 'good'? Actually, that isn't entirely true, while there are several things to compliment this game there are far more negative things to talk about then positive.
As a fairly simple platform game one would expect a bit more fun. The game really seems to bog down on the entertainment factor right out of the gate. Case in point, when playing the side scrolling portions of the game, the characters don't constantly move in one direction. More like, move right, stop, and deal with any number of bad guys that suddenly appear. Once you dispose of them, you then start moving to the right again until another group of baddies show up and you must destroy them.
The whole process seems more forced then anything, and the fact that you can memorize the order in which the bad guys come after the first try certainly makes the game unchallenging. Next, the 3rd person scenarios in which characters fly vehicles are incredibly poor looking.
At least in the side scrolling portions of the game, the lines and colors look reasonable for a GBA game, but the vehicle levels are so bad, and the control is so unfriendly that playing any of these levels will more then likely be the last time you play the game.
As far as controls go, again, a fairly lame configuration. The Jedi attacks are bland and very un-Jedi-like. A simple attack is nothing more then a pathetic swing of the bat and the fact that you use the D-pad to execute these attacks rather then one of the A, B buttons seems absolutely absurd.
Now earlier, I said there were a couple of redeeming qualities, and there were, namely the quality slide show that guides the game's story along which is just like the movie, duh. Surprisingly, there were actual photos of scenes in the movies and quite frankly I was impressed. That's it, nothing else positive. It is a sad excuse for a game that belongs in the.

But the 3D levels are only marginally less frustrating than all the others and just as repetitive gameplay-wise. To add insult to all this injury, the only way to save your progress is via password.
What's the point of a portable game if you have to take along a pad and a pen? Do yourself a favor--go see Episode II instead and blow the extra money on Raisinets. This little sucker should thank its lucky damn stars Mortal Kombat Advance is around to take some of the heat directed at slopped-together GBA games. It's like the enemies, controls and graphics were all conceived in three separate lesser-developed nations.
Simple abilities like turning around while blocking to cover uranus are totally absent. And everyone's apparently out to get you--you'll get shot at by training droids, punched by robots, and kicked by fighter-pilot-looking aliens who probably just saw all the commotion and wanted in. Even the first-person flying missions are too sloppy to enjoy.
It's one of the worst games I've ever played. I can't think of the last time that I played such a horrifically fecal excuse for a game.

Without the swashbucklingly straightforward third-act kinetics of the two antagonistic warriors, AOTC gets mired in a lot of words. Romantic patter it may be. However, I think people have always been too critical of that particular aspect of the film. Yes, Anakin is annoying, and Padme may be unsentimental, but to make that critique without remembering your ninth grade Shakespeare —- namely, Romeo and Juliet , from which I believe Lucas derived inspiration —- is to forget how stilted and cloying teenage talk can actually be.
But I digress. With all due respect to Christopher Lee, Dooku is a weak replacement for Maul; much less interesting than the rumored female Sith an idea, which would eventually become Asajj Ventress. Unexplained Separatist collusion how would the uncharismatic, snotty Dooku rally anyone and even snootier cloners. The campy droid factory and the single worst lightsaber battle in all of Star Wars canon. But reclining Obi-Wan and dismembered Anakin represents a lazy construct; especially when they get up immediately after Yoda chases off Dooku.
Therein, you have the real reason I suspect many folks hate the prequel trilogy. His dramatic imagination is still severely limited, but it would be nice to think that his visual imagination is just taking off. November 19, Separatists threaten war, and the Senate is hopelessly divided, unable to determine whether to raise an army for battle or keep the fragile peace. It is a stalemate that once broken, could lead to galactic chaos.
Time has not dulled Anakin's ambition, nor has his Jedi training tamed his independent streak. When an attempt on Senator Padme Amidala's life brings them together for the first time in ten years, it is clear that time has not dulled Anakin's intense feelings for the beautiful diplomat. The attack on Senator Amidala just before a crucial vote thrusts the Republic even closer to the edge of disaster, Masters Yoda and Mace Windu sense enormous unease.
The dark side is growing, clouding the Jedi's perception of the events. But even as the Republic falters around them, Anakin and Padme find a connection so intense that all else begins to fall away. Anakin will lose himself - and his way - in emotions a Jedi, sworn to hold allegiance only to the Order, is forbidden to have. Salvatore was born in Massachusetts in He makes his home in Massachusetts with his wife, Diane, and their three children.

I advise that you read The Approaching Storm before hand, that is all to do with the Planet called Ansion, see my review to do with that book, well as usual with my reviews, the year is 22 BBY and Anakin Skywalker has just barely become 20 years old since his recent mission, there is a bit of a prelude to where Anakin and Obi-Wan-Kenobi head off to.
This is where Owen Lars thinks of Shimi as a mother, plus the Tusken Raider movement, takes Shimi and in-between you get a glimpse of Padme, recent elected Queen of Naboo and now an elected Senator who is planning bit by bit, in between to go against this Republic Army to assist the overwhelmed Jedi, who are not soldiers as you hear in both the book and the movie.
We then have a glimpse of Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan-Kenobi returning from Ansion, but to Anakin it's more to see Padme, ever since he was a young boy in the Naboo Blockade Battle, then we come to the film story line! Apart from a bit of a Senate meeting saying that Padme Amadala was assassinated from Chancellor Palaptine.
To a meeting with the Jedi but Padme has a feeling that Count Dooku has a reason to be involved, but both Chancellor Palpatine and the Jedi get Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan-Kenobi to protect her, until they nearly find out who the assassin was and a companion to the real assassin, Anakin Skywalker must protect Padme on her home Planet of Naboo while Obi-Wan-Kenobi.
After the chase of the companion who tried to kill Padme again, must try and find out who the real culprit is, that is until he can't find a new Planet called Kamino, due to Dexter's history, but after seeing where to find Kamino, he's soon underway where he sees a lot of Clones and the Kaminioans but also we get to see an old brilliant famous enemy but just younger.
Boba Fett! But also his father Jango Fett! Obi-Wan-Kenobi chases the Bounty Hunter, after a shown down that is to the other new Planet Geonosios where we find Count Dooku with the Trade Fedaration and many other humanoids, to Anakin Skywalkers part, love is forbidden and detachment but to Padme and even in Padme's thoughts. They love each other, this is what I thought of a secondary near Empire Strikes Back love story, sort of near thing, but with Shimi nearly giving in all hope of death, this brings Anakin Skywalker near to the Dark Side!
After slaughtering a lot of Tusken Raiders. Again because this a novel version of film I hoped for some detailed background descriptions of locations and people. I loved the love story between Anakin and Padme though. That being said I did like detail into what Padme was up to before she went to coruscant and also what happened when she got to the senate building.
As for the novelisation of its predecessor The Phantom Menace, and indeed to an even greater extent, this novelisation expands on characters' background and motivations for their behaviour in a way that adds considerable depth to the film storyline. Again this is at the hands of a published author of fantasy novels. This deepening helps particularly in the case of the romance between Anakin and Padme, which was unconvincing on screen.
Anakin's mother Shmi is also given a bit more "airtime" here prior to her tragic demise at the hands of the Tusken raiders, as are Jango and Boba Fett. Mercifully, Jar Jar Binks was in this one much less than its predecessor anyway. The battle and fight scenes are perhaps rather too protracted, though, and difficult to recapture the visual impact from the screen.
One person found this helpful. Reading the book fixes some of the cringe-y bits of the dialogue. For some reason they don't seem cringy being read, unlike the unconvincing delivery in the film, specifically the romance sections. We also get to read how Padme feels about Anakin from the moment he comes to her apartment with obi-wan, trying to deal with conflicting feelings and what she knows is right.
In the film her declaration of love in The arena doesn't really fit as it seems like she initially finds him creepy. The additional sections not in the film flesh out the story well. Well worth reading for any prequel fan. This book is absolutely brilliant. While I'm not a prequel hater like so many seem to be I do have to admit that episode II seems a bit rushed. This is no problem in the book as each scene is expanded brilliantly.
The lightsabre fights at the end are so much longer and really develop a sense of character that was missing from the movie. We get to understand about the different styles of lightsabre combat that dooku, obi-wan, anakin and Yoda use and how each is effective is against another. The time that anakin spent with padme on naboo is expanded and as we get to know about each of their thoughts at that time the love between them seems more credible.
There is also more character development between Boba and Jango Fett that gives an idea of the father-son relationship between them. As well as making Jango's end more emotional considering he is in effect a villain character. There are countless more times where the book goes into greater detail of relatively short scenes in the film and creates more of an emotive experience of those scenes.
I cannot recommend this book highly enough, although it should be read if you have already seen the film so that a contrast can be made. This book was well written. R A Salvatore did not disappoint. The novel explained many concepts which were not apparent in the movie. The story was well designed and carefully explained. It showed the beginnings of the emergence of the Empire.
