The best thing about this massive TV pilot-cum-new "Episode" is its potential because even if it's flawed and only partially functional as a film, The Clone Wars embodies one of the essential elements that has for decades sustained the Star Wars saga %u20

The characters are more likable than usual.

For a film that primarily exists to serve as a feature-length coming attraction for the next phase of a popular franchise, The Clone Wars is a mostly enjoyable bit of escapist entertainment

Aimed at the serious Star Wars fan who is interested in exploring some new corners of the Star Wars universe.

it's especially sad that a few of the better Star Wars games feature not only significantly deeper stories, but also superior CGI, meaning that both this project's film and video game predecessors have already done better.

The animation really needs some oompf and seems to actively work at being unlike a "Star Wars" movie...

More like an animated movie on Saturday morning TV than a feature film

The Clone Wars is what it is -- what Star Wars has become, for better or for worse -- and while it won't blow anyone over, you can't say you weren't warned going in.

In its own way THE CLONE WARS is quite an achievement: it almost perfectly synthesizes everything that has been wrong with the films since%u2026 oh, well - Return of the Jedi.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars comes as something of a surprise: it isn't the most painful movie of the year!

They have billed Star Wars: The Clone Wars as the untold story. If only the untelling of the told could now be done.

It's an almost entirely pointless exercise.

One of the more mediocre entries in the entire Star Wars catalogue.

Groucho Reviews

Redundant, boring, and not terribly attractive in telling a story more suited for the Junior Fiction shelves of your local library than the screens of your local multiplex.

At the risk of over-doing a good thing, if that hasn't been done already, Lucas and crew cuts the final link to reality by going full animation with Star Wars. A righteous battle, but one that will appeal to ever decaying audiences

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, 'Star Wars' movies were actually fun.

While the Force may falter on the big-screen, 'Clone Wars' should do far better this fall as a new, half-hour weekly TV series, starting Oct. 3rd on the Cartoon Network.

Better than Episode I and Episode II. True, many of the same flaws are present - awful dialogue, contrived narrative - but at least The Clone Wars is much shorter.

If the live action movies were the main course, The CLONE WARS are like chocolate truffles. They are short, quick and satisfying.

The Clone Wars elicits some pangs of nostalgia with its grand battles, alien landscapes, and beloved characters but yields little more than fuzzy thoughts of what used to be.
