This will disappoint the hardcore fans, but the Star Wars youth will be entertained.

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.

The only way I'd ever watch the first-ever theatrical production from Lucasfilm Animation again is if I have children or I am unfortunate enough to fall under the spell of a Jedi mind trick.

The only enjoyment I got from the film was laughing at how miserable it was and then zoning out during the boring fight scenes... which make up, no joke, about 90% of the total running time.

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.

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

Has it come to this? Has the magical impact of George Lucas' original vision of Star Wars been reduced to the level of Saturday morning animation?

Oh, George Lucas. Please stop diluting the franchise.

Very young kids, Star Wars completists and Lucas apologists may find themselves compelled to attend; anyone else would have a better time going to the Toshi Station to pick up power converters.

Clone Wars was executive-produced by George Lucas, who may be feeling a tad sheepish about the results.

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.

CGI Star Wars saga is dull, despite action.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

A fairly simplistic plot, which is mostly just a clothesline to string together effective action sequences, eventually runs out of gas and the momentary recapturing of the old thrill fades away.

May be a better-than-average Saturday morning cartoon, but as a theatrical feature, it has limited appeal to young kids and the few diehard fans who'll be able to overlook some of the silliness inherent in the story.

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

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

The Clone Wars may introduce a younger generation to the franchise - while chasing away existing "Star Wars" fans.

Inconsequentiality is a pox upon the proceedings, draining any trace of narrative tension from countless large-scale conflicts that soon overwhelm the screen with stormtroopers, droids, explosions and laser blasts.

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