Worst Star Wars movie up to now   Thursday, May 23, 2002 (4:16 a.m.) 

Hey people,

I saw the movie yesterday and was really a disappointment. There are far too much special effects, the script is chaotic, the cinematography is very strange (too light, too unreal). I didn't like all the jumping out of ships, all the computer animated characters (why for godsake did they computer animate Yoda!? The puppet was much better), the bad sense of humour (droid with C-3PO's head on it saying "kill the Jedi....oh what am I saying!?", really bad sense of humour) and indeed all the recapitulation of the TPM soundtrack. Sometimes I had the idea I was watching a mix of "Lord of the Rings" and "Final Fantasy" including some Star Wars persiflage directed by Tim Burton, instead of a real Star Wars movie. The actors though were good (especially Christensen).
With regard to the music, the love theme worked well as well as the scenes in which Anakin shows his dark sides and a subtal version of the Imperial March is heard. However, the sudden ceasing of the love theme in the balcony scene (in which Padme and Anakin kiss for the first time and Padme suddenly withdraws) was meant as a joke I think but it was really awful.

Hi:
I agree with you about C3PO's part. A little overdone. It looked almost like Jar Jar in Ep. 1. I also agree that some of the dialogue needed help, and even a few of the special effects. Also, the soundtrack during the final battle was basically all from PM.
On the other hand, I loved the story, action, and the emotion of this movie. Christensen was great and I almost cried when his mom died. Also, Ewan was pretty good in this movie, much better than in PM. This movie had everything. Another thing: if Yoda had been a puppet in this movie, it wouldn't had looked good to see suddenly digitally-animated Yoda fighting with Dooku. Obviously, a puppet would not have worked in this scene. I loved Yoda's personality too. He was much friendlier and in touch with Anakin's feelings, and even funny in this movie.

Come on, how could you say Attack of the Clones is the worst? Remember a little movie that came out about three years ago called The Phantom Menace? And yes, Yoda definitely stole the show in this movie, we saw sides of him we had never seen before, and loved it!

Of course this movie if still a lot better than much other sf movies and it is still Star Wars of course. However, because it is a star wars movie I think it could have been at the high standard the original trilogy was.
I think TMP was somewhat too childish but I m inclined to wink at this because it's has been an enormous job to invent and start the new prequel trilogy; but with this film as a basis the second one could have had a more solid script. With regard to what Roberto said, he's right that the fight scene with Yoda couldn't have been done without CGI but I think the scene wasn't even necessary; Yoda always had a sort of mystical power with him, which is suddenly gone now. I always regarded him as the greatest of all jedi, but he appeared to be incapable in beating Dooku, which was a disappointment to me. But of course, overall, there was great action and they really did a lot work on this movie.
