Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones (2002)


Ewan McGregor
Natalie Portman
Hayden Christensen

Directed by George Lucas

The only thing I enjoyed in this Episode II was seeing Yoda take on Count Dooku other than that, Episode II was boring to me, I even found myself preferring the more lackluster script and plot of episode I to this. I think mostly it is because of the wonderful performance of Liam Neeson in episode one that made me prefer it to this movie, because here in this episode II all that is available for me to see is, the Dark Lord getting more grips on the senate and Anakin getting closer to Padme.

Due to the negative reviews that Episode I got, Lucas worked and re-worked on the script of this movie so as to present a more better star wars movie that all will like, the annoying Jar Jar Binks was sidelined in this movie giving fewer lines, as he only spoke like 3 times I think. The most cinematic experience in this new trilogy is the battle between CGI Yoda and 78 year old (that was his age at the time of the movie shooting) Christopher Lee. It was from there you will come to respect Yoda as others do.

The movie takes off 10 years after the end of episode I, with some planets threatening to break away from the republic. Former queen of Naboo and now senator, Padme was sent to the senate by the new queen of Naboo. On her way to the senate an assassination attempt was made on her life. Young Anakin Skywalker and his mentor Obi-Wan Kenobi were assigned to protect her with Anakin to watch over her and Obi-Wan to investigate who was behind the assassination attempt.

During their duty Anakin and Padme became close and Obi-Wan stumbled on a larger plot tend to bring about a civil war.

The movie had an overlong story, the dialogue was boring and since I’m watching it at the comfort of my home, I had to pause and walk off sleep. The acting was horrible I just couldn’t believe it; Hayden Christensen who plays Anakin Skywalker Obi-Wan's gifted padawan apprentice, his performance was sad and dull I couldn’t wait for his screen time to be over each time, his romantic link with Padme is just stupid, she just fell in love like that...?? it was outrageous.

I disliked Attack of the Clones and really preferred the first. The movie did make its money but didn’t make as much as the first movie and also didn’t make as much as the last, in this second Trilogy of the Star Wars saga. Again I didn’t like this movie for anything.
