If this film is any indication of the quality of the forthcoming television series, it will be blessedly short-lived.

The visuals are worthy, but the big screen brings the movie's script shortcomings and pacing problems into sharper relief.

The computer-generated The Clone Wars exists for no discernible reason other than to recharge George Lucas' overflowing coffers.

Here are six words that would probably get me tarred and feathered at a comic-book convention: I am sick of Star Wars.

These characters look like denizens of a video game: lifelike, but definitely not alive.

The supposed playful banter between Anakin and the feisty Ahsoka is particularly cringe-worthy.

The Force has lost its oomph. Lucas and friends have finally gone a franchise too far.

Even with the bar having been lowered by the vacuous, overblown prequels though, 'Clone Wars' takes things to crass new lows

The action sequences are kinetic and hold the eye, the animation style is detailed and it remains within the boundaries of the canon.

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...
Jackie K. Cooper

More like an animated movie on Saturday morning TV than a feature film
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10

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.
