Despite some absolutely gorgeous animation and adjusting expectations for what Clone Wars is meant to be, the Force is not strong with this one.

With Clone Wars, Lucas continues to plunder the past of his own imagination at a great cost: the integrity and magic of his original Star Wars trilogy.

Star Wars fans will want to see this, if only to discuss its failings, but I can't see it having a wide appeal at the cinema.

I cannot accept that this is a Star Wars movie.

It's a film of many firsts, but few of them positive: for the first time in history, we have a Star Wars film that you won't love or hate, but one about which you just won't care less either way.

Ultimately, there simply wasn't enough narrative development to justify a feature length film.

[Features] some of the least watchable animation since Warner Brothers reinvented Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck as kung-fu swordsmen with laser eyes.

With blocky, stiffly animated characters and even worse music, it's a money-grabbing afterthought (good luck with that, George) awkwardly assembled from a few episodes of the new series.

A complete gas to more open-minded fans, and assured catnip to children. The occasional sexually-ambiguous Hutt or sassmouthed, premenstrual Jedi aside, it's an exciting picture and a tempting commencement for the TV series.

70 percent action, 5 percent exposition and 24 percent forced banter ... that's just 1 percent left over for committee meetings and C-Span-worthy parliamentary maneuvering -- proceedings that have so fascinated George Lucas in the past.

It had a lot of potential, but unfortunately, that label of 'supplement' seems more appropriate for it than 'stand alone film' does.

Feels very much like the television pilot that it is.

Its elements are actually quite typical of a syndicated cartoon series, aimed mostly at the young'uns and contributing pretty much nothing to the Star Wars mythos.

Despite Ahsoka's cloying presence, The Clone Wars is still easier to take than Attack of the Clones.

This "First Animated Star Wars Movie" does the series no favors, demonstrating why live action trumps animation--at least when the digital beings and creatures are this poorly designed.

...little plot and almost nothing but redundant action. It becomes tiresome very fast.

Strong new characters are disappointingly thin on the ground.

It moves fast, conquers armies, kicks into hyperspace and spits out idiotic quips with unapologetic cartoon brio.

hile the new Clone Wars features improved visuals and increased action, the show's big screen premiere fails to exist as anything other than a 90-minute commercial for the inevitable toy line.
