Critic Reviews for Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones
His characters, as is now his norm, are plastic puppets, even in the confectionary love scenes. Most of their dialogue is so doughy that it could be spooned into comic-strip balloons. Lucas simply has no interest in these people.
The technical wizardry of the action scenes are ultimately more important than the story and reason enough for nonbelievers to see and enjoy the movie.
Allowing for some dull moments, this movie has considerable visual style.
Lucas' obsession with digital technology has obliterated the saga's last remnants of human purpose and turned his once mesmerizing space opera into a pure, dehumanized cartoon.
In lieu of a proper climax, Attack Of The Clones ends with a tantalizing cliffhanger for the next episode, but Lucas' lumbering series is presenting fewer and fewer reasons to tune in.
Audience Reviews for Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones
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.
Somehow slightly going backwards on things that the first prequel completely failed on, "Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones" is not is any way a good film. 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 still fails in ways that I wish were different, but at least it's fun to laugh at this instalment. In the end, It's nothing special at all and quite frankly, this is arguably the worst in the entire franchise. Just an awful addition to the franchise, even by the prequel standards.
Attack of the Clones, like Phantom, suffers from bad writing and awkward acting. The film improves in its final 15 minutes, however, with engaging action sequences.
