What is it about? Set 10 years after The Phantom Menace, separatists are threatening the galaxy and the Republic. An assassination plot to kill Senator Amidala is taking place, and it is up to the Jedi to stop it and protect her. A mysterious clone army, and much more is discovered by the Jedi, which leads to the Clone Wars and destruction of the Republic. Attack of the Clones is an awful movie not worth your time.
How is it? 2.25/5 Star Wars: Attack of the Clones is a 2-and-a-half-hours long blob of nothingness. It is extremely boring, terribly acted, and the romance between Anakin and Padmé is dry and just plain creepy. The few decent fight scenes there are cannot compensate for the terribleness of Attack of the Clones. The only one thing I can give it credit for, and for all the prequels, for that matter, is world-building: George Lucas, although he created these dry, stiff, and flat-out boring prequels, still managed to add a ton to Star Wars lore, and we would never look at the saga the same way without the prequels.
How is the action and special effects? 3/5 Like its predecessor and sequel, Attack of the Clones has overused CGI (computer generated imagery) and the action is scarce. The last battle of Geonosis is exciting as well as the battle between Count Dooku (the villain) and Yoda. However, the action does not make up for the horrendously acted, terrible first two-thirds of the movie.
In conclusion, Star Wars: Attack of the Clones is even worse than the Phantom Menace and isn’t worth the time watching.
