The STAR WARS saga continues on DVD with Episode II Attack of the Clones. Anakin Skywalker has grown into an accomplished Jedi apprentice, and he faces his most difficult challenge yet as he must choose between his Jedi duty and forbidden love. Relive the adventure the way it was meant to be seen in spectacular digital clarity, including the climactic Clone War battle and Jedi Master Yoda in the ultimate lightsaber duel. Experience this 2-disc set that features over six hours of bonus materials, and see how Episode II unlocks the secrets of the entire STAR WARS saga.
Star Wars: Episode II, Attack of the Clones is a superior DVD, repeating many of the elements that made its predecessor, Episode I, The Phantom Menace, so good. The picture and sound are spectacular, helped immensely by the fact that the film was shot entirely in digital, making this the first live-action direct digital-to-digital DVD transfer. This version of the film was the one shown in digital-projection theaters; there are subtle differences from the standard theatrical version, such as showing Anakin's right hand in the final scene. Again, there's a commentary track compiled from various people, including George Lucas (why can't he pronounce the names he created?), producer Rick McCallum, editor Ben Burtt, ILM animation director Rob Coleman, and three visual effects supervisors discussing how the film was made and offering teasers to Episode III.
On the second disc are eight deleted scenes with optional introductions. Most interesting are a scene of Padme addressing the Senate to oppose the creation of a Republic army, and some bits with her family and home on Naboo, but it's probably telling that, unlike with Phantom Menace, none of the deleted scenes was incorporated into the film on the DVD. Three substantial documentaries on digital characters, animatics, and creating sound elements are complemented by three insubstantial featurettes, a recycled but interesting 12-part Web documentary, and various other items that should keep fans busy while they wait for Episode III. --David Horiuchi

Also, George Lucas did Clone Wars. Disney did Rebels. There's a difference people.
The cast's performances are well done! It is refreshing to see Hayden Christensen playing Anakin Skywalker and the character portrayed well. In Episode II, Anakin is 19 years old and minute amount of teenage behavior is expected of the character--Christensen exposes Anakin's frail and fragile traits, as he fears the loss of his mother.
Portman is a great actress and I am glad to see Portman reprised her role as Senator Amidala of Naboo.
The cinematography brilliantly captures the imagination of director/writer George Lucas along with great stunning visuals and special effects. Walking out of the theatre after 2 hours and 14 minutes, I eagerly desire to see the future for the characters of Anakin and Padme in Episode III. Mr. George Lucas is a great storyteller and he utilizes his talents, skills, and resources immensely well to create this film. My thanks to you Mr. Lucas for captivating me and transporting me a long time ago to a galaxy far, far away. I for one am a fan. Bravo!
