      Lasse L Attack of the Clones suffers greatly from wooden dialogue and Lucas' questionable direction. There's still enjoyable stuff in here and the creativity on display is weirdly refreshing in the context of the newer Star Wars projects' lack thereof. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 04/16/24 Full Review Chanr3y k This movie has some really cheesey dialogue, and although it is more fun than it's prequel, the story telling of the movie can be absolutely ridiculous at points. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 04/15/24 Full Review Hayden L This movie has to be the biggest disappointment in the live action Star Wars movies. From the bad plot to the cringy dialogue, this movie did not meet my expectations. Even though this movie has to be the worst Skywalker Saga movie, it does have some upsides, such as Yoda and his lightsaber for the first time or meeting Count Dooku, who has to be one of the coolest Star Wars Villains of all time, especially in Clone Wars. Overall, not a great movie, but it sets up the rest of the Star Wars movies so go watch it. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 04/14/24 Full Review Nicklas N Wow, that was quite a mess of a movie. You could fall asleep through the whole movie and then just watch the last 20 minutes or so where something happens. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 04/10/24 Full Review Daxton D I love this movie so much, not only is it my favorite Star Wars movie but also the most underrated star wars movie and maybe the most underrated movie of all time Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/09/24 Full Review Mr. G Ein Film der total in Ordnung ist. Weder gut noch schlecht. Allerdings stechen vorallem die hölzernen Dialoge hervor, die sich nahezu durch den gesamten Film ziehen. Vorallem die Passagen von Anakinund Padme ala Romeo und Julia ziehen sich leider in die Länge und zeigen das fehlende Talent von Georg Lucas gute Dialoge zu schreiben.

      Andrew O'Hehir Sight & Sound A forgettable and discontented tale of entropy and corruption, of a grand, idealistic venture that has lost its way. Dec 19, 2019 Full Review Namrata Joshi Outlook Attack of the Clones fails to offer the same brand of unadulterated thrill and excitement as the Star Wars trilogy. Rated: 2/4 Jan 3, 2019 Full Review Stanley Kauffmann The New Republic His characters, as is now his norm, are plastic puppets, even in the confectionary love scenes. Most of their dialogue is so doughy that it could be spooned into comic-strip balloons. Lucas simply has no interest in these people. Apr 11, 2016 Full Review Christian Eulinberg InSession Film I cannot express how terrible and dragged out the pacing of this entry was. It is the weakest episode of the prequel trilogy. Sep 26, 2023 Full Review Rob Gonsalves Rob's Movie Vault The action did less than nothing for me. There’s no sense of awe or terror or grandeur in the imagery. Rated: D Sep 17, 2022 Full Review Keith Garlington Keith & the Movies It advances the stories of its three pivotal characters in meaningful ways. It’s a technical marvel despite some visual overindulgences. Plus it supplied the framework for what was a fantastic television series “The Clone Wars”.
