Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones


This film is, in my opinion, only marginally better than The Phantom Menace.

Ewan McGregor had a larger role as Obi-Wan, and that made significant sections of the film more tolerable.

Any scene that had anything to do with Hayden Christensen was just abysmal. Absolutely horrendous. I don’t know if it was the script, or lack of acting ability, but everything about his performance was painful to watch.

The “romance” scenes with Padme (Natalie Portman) and Anakin (Hayden Christensen)? The words uncomfortable and slightly creepy come to mind. I don’t understand how anyone could watch this film and believe that Padme and Anakin were in love. Or even liked each other.

It’s so bizarre.

There is a lot of CGI used in Attack of the Clones, and a lot of it is bad. The use of green screen is incredibly noticeable in many scenes.

The plot makes little sense, though it lends itself to more exciting sequences than that of The Phantom Menace.
