5.0 out of 5 stars Works for Me! June 21, 2002
The great thing about going to a film that has been out for awhile, and that many people have trashed, is that your expectation level is reduced to a normal level of expectancy, which is where it should be to begin with.
Flat out, I thought the film was terrific and that nearly all the criticisms I have read prior to seeing the flick were groundless, inane, and overblown. First, this absurd idealization of the original films is nonsense! They weren't that damn great. They were new & original and breakthroughs, but the stories weren't that hot with the exception of Luke's quest & discovery of who his father has become. There was little great dialogue, and no jaw-dropping performances. There was, thank goodness, Alec Guinness as Obi Wan. The rest of the cast just limboed in under the age limit not to be ridiculous in their awkward teen love scenes. At least the young performers in this film are young! Their awkwardness fits. I always found the byplay between Carrie Fisher & Harrison Ford embarrassing.
Anyway, I'm not going to compare and contrast the two sets of films. The old ones are what they are, the new ones are what they are. I will just comment on all the vitriol heaped on Lucas, e.g., that he is too isolated & out of touch on his ranch (read empire). Well, he may be, but he's also busy inventing worlds & universes out there that I found beautifully realized, detailed, and exciting in this film.
The movie has some slow spots, but they don't last long.

1.0 out of 5 stars Having your cake and not eating it... December 4, 2004
Format:DVD
Lucas is on record as saying that he always envisioned Star Wars as a kid's adventure. Fair enough. But the audience base of Star Wars grew up, and they require more substance. I, for one, never had any great sense of what is at stake here, either from the characters or the plot. The effects serve to almost completely overwhelm what little plot exists, and as another reviewer noted Lucas manages to coax even the most accomplished actors into having all the depth of wooden planks from the lumber store.

Just think about it for a moment. If you grew up with Star Wars like I did, we knew long before even "Return of the Jedi" about all the major back-story events that Lucas told us at the time and through the movies. Anakin Skywalker fell to the dark side and became Darth Vader (and fell into a lava pit in a battle with Obi-Wan hence the life-support black armor and helmet). The Old Republic fell during the Clone Wars and the Jedi were all but wiped out as Vader helped hunt down and destroy them. The backstory we dreamed about was a shell waiting to be filled with more details and certainly sounded much more dramatic.

And now, what precisely has the first two films given us in terms us fleshing out the skeletal figure of what we already knew? Jar-Jar Binks soaking up screen time solely for the sake of keeping younger kids entertained? Anakin pilots racing pods as a child? Chase scenes galore? Anakin falls because his mother was killed by Tusken Raiders? Jango Fett was the template for Imperial Stormtroopers (who have the worst aim in cinematic history)? Count Dooku is a bad man who was once Yoda's student?

It's like we still have the open-ended backstory, and we're watching all the points being connected with seriously underdeveloped filler that slathers on special effects. Where is the cake under all this frosting? Sorry, Mr. Lucas, when I grew up my taste buds learned that eating just the frosting was missing most of the dessert.

3.0 out of 5 stars Well, I suppose that it could have been worse... May 28, 2002
By Foistie
I suppose that it could have been worse...but then, it could also have been better...A lot better.
The problem with George Lucas is that he only listens to George Lucas. Apparently no one around him is willing (or able) to stand toe-to-toe with him and point out obvious things like:
1) You have no usable script,
2) You should hire qualified actors (ala Alec Guiness in the original)and pay them accordingly,
3) Special effects alone does not a good movie make (uh-oh I'm sounding like Yoda, or is it Jar Jar?)
4) A 2 foot tall green Keebler Elf type character looks silly as a Samurai ninja type jedi fighter
5) You have no usable script (but then I repeat myself...)
When Mr. Lucas brought in a different Director to make Star Wars IV "The Empire Strikes Back", he ended up with the movie most pick as the best of the 5 (to date). But Mr. Lucas didn't like what the Director ultimately did with that movie.
George should stick to what he does best (producing, marketing, etc.) and let those more qualified do the rest. He should have hired a qualified Script Writer, a qualified Director and a qualified Casting person to do get the right actors/actresses. After all, he certainly has enough money to do it right. But of course, he isn't willing to give up 'artistic control' of his flagship. ...

5.0 out of 5 stars I really wanted to hate this movie July 18, 2002
By A Customer
After the horror that was The Phantom Menace, which I own for those insomina plagued nights, I knew that I was going to hate this movie. I read the bad reviews and I knew that I'd agree with them. But, I was dragged to see it and I knew that it would be a grim few hours.
This is one case where I'm glad that I was totally wrong. I liked the movie so much that I've been back to see it again. The acting, that many have cited as dry, was appropriate to the setting and the circumstances of the film. I really didn't expect to see cheerful and lively characters in a story about an impending civil war. The romance, although muted, was appropriate for two very young characters who probably have never had much experience with romance to begin with. The middle was mostly talk and no action. I like a film that takes it's time and lets itself develop, instead of assaulting the viewer with non stop action and little plot or character development. I really felt that it was essential to the film to have the characters talk, as this is the installment of the series that starts to explain why Anakin becomes Darth Vader and why the Republic falls. I wish they'd actually developed them a little more, personally.
Hayden Christiansen delivered a solid performance as a moody, confused kid. The fact that he wasn't overly eloquent helped me to believe that the cute kid in PM could actually turn into the nasty guy that I believed was hiding in my closet when I was growing up. Natalie Portman again reminded me why she's one of my favorite actresses. She was able to blend the strong assertive side of her character with an almost maternal caring for Anakin.

I'm honestly not trying to be rude or disrespectful, but please consider seeing a psychiatrist. Your post makes no sense, and makes connections that do not exist.

Confused with Attack of the Clones?
I'm glad someone else noticed this. It must be Amazon's doing because I see many of these reviews are dated earlier than the release of The Clone Wars animated feature. Disappointing, because I was hoping to read all of the 1-star reviews!

Does it have Spanish subtitles?
My copy, which I bought from Amazon (and is the same as all others) does NOT have Spanish subtitles, except when a character is speaking in a made-up "Star Wars" language (only a few lines). It does, however, have a complete optional Spanish soundtrack.
