Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones

Actors: /

George Lucas’s Star Wars is back with killer alien beasts, armies of clones and light saber wielding Jedi in the action adventure film Attack of the Clones. The story picks up ten years after the Phantom Menace, with Senator Amidala (Natalie Portman) barely escaping an assassination attempt. The Jedi council assigns the gifted yet troubled apprentice Jedi Anakin Skywalker (Hayden Christensen) and his teacher Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ewan Mcgregor) to protect the beautiful Senator. When the Jedi council sends Obi-Wan to an alien planet to find out who is behind the assassination attempts, Anakin and Amidala are left alone to nurture a budding romance. This is one part I’m glad I couldn’t see and I wish I didn’t have to hear some of the corny romantic lines. When Obi-Wan learns of an army of clones, an evil Jedi named Count Dooku (Christopher Lee) imprisons him. Obi-Wan alerts Anakin who comes to the rescue with the rest of the Jedi lead by Yoda not far behind. In fact, you’ll see a lot more of Yoda – the new Bruce Lee – and a lot less of Jar Jar Binks. If Jar Jar would have talked too long, I was going to stuff popcorn in my ears. This movie is filled with action, drama, a touch of romance and a few surprises. The acting was satisfactory, but the story and the visual effects (okay sound effects) were fabulous. Did I mention Jar Jar Binks is only in this film for 3 minutes yet he still annoyed me? I give this fun, exciting film a B rating.

This movie has been given a PG rating by the MPAA

Although I am blind, I can appreciate a good movie as well as sighted individuals.
I rely more on a good story line than special effects.
