Attack of the Clones

[ #4991 ]

I just saw it tonight, thoughts.

Good:

  • The action in this movie was much much better. The end was very strong.
  • Yoda fighting was very kewl. It was almost so quick that is was a blur, but if you think about it that's how it should be.
  • The CG in this movie felt solid, this is much different from episode one. In menace, I always felt like nothing was quite real. You still felt that in places in AOTC, but not nearly as often or strongly.
  • John Williams did a much much better job with the music. Phantom's music was a little weak, none of the powerful horns or rising strings in the other Star Wars movies. It's back to how it should be in this one.
  • Humor returns to Star Wars. I loved Obi-wan in the bar especially

The Bad:

  • I saw AOTC on a really big screen, and I don't think the digital filming quite held up. The darkness was jaggy and forced, while the contrast seem unnaturally high. There was none of the rich beauty that a well shot fill like this should have.
  • The dialog is horrible. Lucas needs to get someone else to write.
  • It still doesn't seem like a romantic struggle between good and evil, it seems like a political movie.
  • Anakin does not seem like a dark lord in the making, he seems like a pissed off teenager. I really did not like his charactor
  • The jedi seem very powerless in their downfall. It seems very forced, and not quite right.
  • The romance between Amadala and Anakin is just plain bad. I don't know if it's directing, or writing, or acting (I doubt that).

It was a vast improvement over Episode I. Then again, that's not that hard to do.

7.5 out of 10.
