I just watched Star Wars II. I've never been a huge Star Wars fan so I came into this movie with a nuetral perspective, unlike the rest of the audience that clapped when Lucas' name appeared on the screen as if they were in the same theatre.
I came out of the movie nuetral to Star Wars. The entire movie can be summed up as thus: boring, action, boring, action, Yoda.
I would still recommend this movie, go see it, the effects are astounding.
