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.

5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite Star Wars movie June 24, 2002
Yes, you read right. "Attack of the Clones" is my favorite Star Wars movie so far. "A New Hope" and "The Empire Strikes Back" are just as good, but Episode II is the one I enjoy the most.
This movie had everything a die-hard fan of Star Wars could want: Action, suspense, great special effects, great story, and old trilogy forshadowing like what! And lastly, what REAL fan of Star Wars wouldn't want Yoda to fight?! That's the best part of this movie right there! I mean, what more is there to ask for?! This is Star Wars at its best!
For those who complained about the love story, the dialogue and acting didn't sound any different than what I've experienced with young love. When you're young and stupid-happy for someone, all logic fails, and you begin to say corny things, and not act like yourself. I totally saw this in Padme and Anakin. And a lot of the time in real life, young love happens fast like it did in this movie. People go off on Spring break and fall in love all the time. :) And as far as their illogical marriage, you knew this had to happen. But they didn't act illogical at first. They first decided not to fall in love. But after experiencing a life or death situation together, all logic fails. They were already in love. It's just that after that extreme situation they were put in, it lead them to act irrationally and they got married. As far as I'm concerned, there's not really anything bad about this love story. It's not unrealistic, and it's corny feel is exactly how most young couples are when they fall in love: stupid. :) It makes you cringe a little bit, but everything about young love looks stupid and silly from the perspective of the one outside of the relationship observing it. Come on! They're twiter-pated!

I know that the Jedi Code forbids romantic love, but do you know why?
I think "Revenge of the Sith" answered this question, Love makes us do dumb things, anyone who has ever been in love knows what I am talking about, as in "Sith" Yoda explains it clearly>>> "The fear of loss or attachments is a path to the dark side" to qoute... Read More

About Christopher Lee's earlier work---READ!!!!!!...
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.
