Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones Movie Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Dec 27, 2006
( Rating: 4 Star Rating)

Check out Kidzworld's movie of review Star Wars Episode II Attack of the Clones! Does it live up to the hype? Starring Hayden Christensen & Natalie Portman.

Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones has been unleashed into theaters and it's filling the screen with Jedi Knights and some of the best looking sci-fi scenery ever. Star Wars Episode II clocks in at two-and-a-half hours long and has action, romance, intrigue, clones and Yoda kicking serious Sith butt. Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones starts off years after Star Wars Episode I. Anakin (Hayden Christensen) has grown from a pint-size Jedi Knight wannabe into a full-size Jedi Knight wannabe. Obi-Wan (Ewan McGregor) is a Jedi Knight now, Anakin is his Padawan apprentice and Queen Amidala (Natalie Portman) is now Senator Amidala.

There are a few really cool things about Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones. The fight scenes are loaded with Jedi Knights and have lots of lightsaber combat. Amidala is awesome too - she has a different outfit in every scene and some, like her skin-tight white outfit, make her a total sci-fi hottie.

The best thing in Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones is Yoda. The green dude has more coolness in his tiny pinkie than the rest of the Episode II cast combined. He's a pint-sized Jedi Master with mad Force skills and insane lightsaber moves. The whole theater roared when he hauled out his lightsaber to lay some villain smackdown - you'll see why.

The second best thing about Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones is the huge bucks George Lucas spent on the FX. The Star Wars scenery is awesome with huge cities, massive armies of droids and more clones than you can shake a lightsaber at. The battles have a zillion things going on and there are more computer-generated critters in Star Wars Episode II than in Ice Age.

The weakest scenes in Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones are the ones with acting and drama. The whole Anakin-Amidala relationship doesn't have much chemistry and Hayden Christensen makes Anakin come across as a whiny kid. I'd like to find the guy who recommended he audition for this role and give him a smack.

If you're looking for a fun sci-fi movie with a load of references to the old Star Wars movies then this is a good flick for you. If you're expecting this to be the a better movie than Spider-Man, you're gonna be disappointed. It's not worse - it's just not better.

Rating: 4

It included a lot of mature themes and it really connects with today's older youth. You mean violence wise? Not just that, but the show tells the stories of the characters finding themselves. Take Asami for example. A lot of people have a late relative and another relative involved in some kind of trouble. She had her relationships AND family business to take care of, which relates to some of today's youth who feel like they have the whole world on their shoulders. They're starting to have to take responsibility for things they can hardly manage, and seeing the triumph of a character like Asami is truly inspiring. Her mother's dead, her father's in prison, her boyfriend was stolen from her, and her business nearly failed. But she did not give up, which sends a positive message to today's generation of teens. Mako was not stolen from Asami he just chose Korra and everyone knows that thats what people wanted. As messed up as that sounds its the truth.
