Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones 3D (2002)
Critic Consensus: Though it still suffers from an overabundance of exposition, the action quotient is upped considerably in Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones, which makes it an improvement over The Phantom Menace.
The second prequel to the original Star Wars trilogy takes place ten years after the events depicted in Star Wars: Episode I -- The Phantom Menace. Now 20, young Anakin Skywalker (Hayden Christensen) is an apprentice to respected Jedi knight Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor). Unusually powerful in the Force, Anakin is also impatient, arrogant, and headstrong -- causing his mentor a great deal of concern. The pair are ordered to protect Padme Amidala (Natalie Portman), the former queen of the planet Naboo, now representing her world in the Galactic Senate. Someone is trying to assassinate her on the eve of a vote enabling Supreme Chancellor Palpatine (Ian McDiarmid) to build a military force that will safeguard against a growing separatist movement led by mysterious former Jedi Count Dooku (Christopher Lee). After another attempt on Padme's life, Obi-Wan and Anakin separate. The young Jedi and Padme fall in love as he escorts her first to the security of Naboo and then to his home world of Tatooine, where the fate of his mother leads him to commit an ominous atrocity. Meanwhile, Obi-Wan travels to the secretive planet Kamino and the asteroid-ringed world of Geonosis, following bounty hunter Jango Fett (Temuera Morrison) and his son, Boba (Daniel Logan), who are involved in an operation to create a massive army of clones. A vicious battle ensues between the clones and Jedi on one side and Dooku's droids on the other, but who is really pulling the strings in this galactic conflict? In late 2002, the movie was released in IMAX theaters as Star Wars: Episode II -- Attack of the Clones: The IMAX Experience, with a pared-down running time of 120 minutes in order to meet the technical requirements of the large-screen format. ~ Karl Williams, Rovi … More

Critic Reviews for Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones 3D
This time the exposition is so thick that everyone except acolytes may tune out.
Christensen is a winning mix of sultry and sulky as the now older Anakin, while McGregor is finally beginning to relax as the mentor who understandably refuses to treat his moody pupil like a grown-up.
It starts off briskly with some fantastic special effects and a great high-speed chase but then founders on the shores of bad script writing.
Though, lacking in plotline it makes up for in action and entertainment.
Audience Reviews for Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones 3D
this movie has some great action sequences to look at and the effects are great and spectacular to see, when i was little i couldn't get enough of the last 45 minutes because its just all out war and fighting with the clones, Jedi, droids, genosians, ships, Sith, weird creatures, its freaking crazy but that's what i love about it, its intense and awesome to watch.
Though it's a lot to take in, Attack of the Clones is still a fun ride. The writing and acting still suffer, but once again--similar to Phantom Menace--the action sequences and the story it tells make up for these flaws. There is excitement, mystery, and romance (with some cliches in tow of course).
Slightly improving on things that the first prequel completely failed on, "Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones" is not is any way a goof film, but it is a damn entertaining one to watch, even if it's for dumb reasons to begin with. We follow a grown up Anikin Skywalker as he becomes stronger and understands the ways of the force. This is the middle chunk of this story, where we begin to see the dark side of Anikin, and a foreshadow of his soon-to-be future. Again, poorly scripted, sloppy camerawork, and a dumb plot, with great visuals and very entertaining battles sequences. This film satisfies in ways that I wish were different, but at least it's a little better than the previous installment. In end end, it's nothing special to remember.
