1.0 out of 5 stars Juvenile movie with pathetic script and acting, May 17, 2002
By A Customer
If you're 10 or under, I can cautiously recommend this film, but if you're over 14, forget it. This is the most juvenile attempt at action/science-fiction I've ever seen. Simply put, it is a pathetic excuse for a movie. It is clear that their special effects consumed the entire budget for the film, and they had no money left over to pay for actors or a script.
The acting is so bad that it is frankly embarrassing. I felt like I was watching a junior high drama club. "My heart is breaking for you... Yes, but this is a love that cannot be". (barf). They are so stiff and the lines so trite that I think I could find two random teens at the mall who could give a better reading. The script sounds like it was written by a 15-year-old girl who spent the last 5 years overdosing on romance novels.
Unlike the original episode, Attack of the Clones has no fun or humor. It plods along with the bad guys plotting a rebellion while the good guys try to figure out what's going on. There was not one single laugh in the entire movie - not counting my chuckles at the pathetic acting and script.
I thought the visual effects were poor given the budget for this movie. There were a number of scenes which appeared to have the actors standing in front of poorly painted landscape scenes. Even the indoor shots seemed to have a haze about them.
On a 1 to 10 scale, Attack of the Clones barely rates 1.

I thought the only redeeming characteristic of this movie was the visuals, for which I have nothing but praise at least from a technological standpoint. As for the rest, I gotta agree with you.

Ah, the image of George Lucas as a fifteen year old girl voraciously reading romance novels... funny. glorious. disturbing. terrifying.

Hard to disagree with anything you said. I _WANT_ to love it, but... Still, 1 star might be a _bit_ harsh..?

The 7 year old inside me - that kid who saw Star Wars for the very first time - hates me for it, but I felt I had to give you a "helpful" regardless. Even though honestly I feel this film deserves at least 2 stars. :-(
