IfThe Phantom Menacewas the setup, thenAttack of the Clonesis the plot-progressing payoff, and devotedStar Warsfans are sure to be enthralled. Ten years afterEpisode I, Padmé Amidala (Natalie Portman), now a senator, resists the creation of a Republic Army to combat an evil separatist movement. The brooding Anakin Skywalker (Hayden Christensen) is resentful of his stern Jedi mentor, Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor), tormented by personal loss, and showing his emerging "dark side" while protecting his new love, Amidala, from would-be assassins. Youthful romance and solemn portent foreshadow the events of the originalStar Warsas Count Dooku (a.k.a. Darth Tyranus, played by Christopher Lee) forges an alliance with the Dark Lord of the Sith, while lavish set pieces showcase George Lucas's supreme command of all-digital filmmaking. All of this makesEpisode IIa technological milestone, savaged by some critics as a bloated, storyless spectacle, but still qualifying as a fan-approved precursor to the pivotal events ofEpisode III.--Jeff Shannon

It ends with a spectacular battle scene - still one of the best sci-fi battles out there.    I like a lot about Attack of the Clones, but at the end of the day it just seems like the plot still needed to be worked out. There is a whole mystery about who built the clone army, but this is never fully …

This film still lacks the wit and style that came naturally to the original trilogy. Much like the first film, I feel that the actions of many of the characters were forced on the audience in an attempt to create some sort of likeable character. In "Menace," we were force-fed Darth Maul in order to make him like Boba Fett. In other words, Boba Fett had a small part in the original trilogy, but people attached themselves to the character. Maul failed to do this in "Menace." In "Clones," we are given …

To me, "Attack of the Clones" was neither Great nor Terrible. I went expecting some pretty lights, some good fight scenes, and basically dumb, fun entertainment. Though the movie has definite flaws, I was not disappointed.There, now you don't need to read the rest of this. I suppose I might go into at least a little more detail. Let's start with where the movie went wrong.     The dialogue is bad. Not just regular-bad, either. This dialogue is Vogon poetry-bad - painfully bad, …
