The acting is horrible, environments fake looking, and the dialogue incredibly generic and wooden. It'll take everything you know and love about Star Wars from your childhood and just fuck it, fuck it over and over again until it's chaffed, raw, bloody, and begging you to stop. Want to have the mystery of Boba Fett completely ruined and see his fucking face? Well here's your chance! Hayden Christensen is actually WORSE than Jake Lloyd! What Plan 9 would be with a multimillion dollar budget.

George Lucas gives another attempt at his Star Wars franchise but fails terribly. The general story is honestly alright but when it's presented with such poor dialog that you almost forget that it's even OK. As usual the CGI is impressive but that's it. See this only if you enjoy Star Wars and don't mind really bad dialog. Another swing and a miss for George.

Here is the stinker of the whole bunch. A mess of a script with horrible dialogue. There are some interesting ideas, especially in the second half, but those ideas are primarily stylistic endeavors. Ewan McGregor and Christopher Lee give the only decent performances, yet they can't inject any life into the muddled, masochistic narrative. Hayden Christensen is an abomination, yet I have my doubts that even Leo DiCaprio (who was approached with the role) would have been able to perform this tripe.

The most boring Star Wars movie if you ask me. I didn't at all care for the C3P0 side story and the romance story and dialogue are so cringeworthy. Christensen isn't good and for some reason, Portman doesn't seem to be giving it her all like I usually see her do. Probably the writing if you ask me. It's definitely not as laughable as Phantom Menace, but it is much slower and the all of the stuff with Obi-Wan makes it at least watchable. My least favorite in the franchise.

If you ignore the fact that Yoda bounces around like sonic the hedgehog on methamphetamines this isn't so bad is it? Oh wait, you also have Natalie Portman and Hayden Christensen giving the most laughable deadpan wooden performances of their careers. I still think this is the least terrible out of the trilogy but it's like judging who is the prettiest girl at a fat camp.

The sting of seeing this one opening day will never heal, the wound was reopened a month later when grandparents were taking us to go see Minority Report and last second heel move, switched to seeing Episode 2 when we got to the ticket window. Theres about maybe a half hour of good stuff here but its over 2 hours long! The Yoda fight was probably the hardest I've ever laughed in a theater. Weird billionaire writing about love. Now this is pod racing.

Hayden Christensen might be the worst actor of his generation - maybe ever. Lucas is an idiot for casting him. The best thing about this movie is that it made 250 million less than The Phantom Menace. That's just a testament to how bad Menace was - but whatever this isn't any better. Terrible dialogue, shitty acting, weak effects, bad film.

Even looking beyond the bland plotlines, pointless action and some terrible dialogue, I can't help but feel that this movie is simply another one of Lucas's big nerdish wet dreams. I hate that there's no substance and a shitload of aliens talking gibberish for no apparent reason, especially seeing as other characters respond in English. Another major aspect is that I can't bloody stand Christensen, whether it be in character or not, leading to pretty much every scene being inherantly irritating.

"I don't like sand. It's coarse and rough and irritating and it gets everywhere. Not like here. Here everything is soft and smooth." Hayden Christensen is the sand of the Star Wars saga. BOOM! I sure nailed that joke. But seriously, if you say that the best part of the film was Yodas lightsaber duel with Count Dooku you have clearly don't understand Episode V and probably think that Michael Bay is a good directer. Screw you. The redlettermedia reviews were better than the prequels, go watch them

Nothing short of an abomination and by far and away the worst of the Star Wars franchise. Horrible action sequences and frankly laughable CGI are backed up by poor acting, continued dodgy casting, and a script right out of George Lucus' arsehole. I'll admit to being never quite as loved-up with Star Wars as some, but this film pisses all over the legacy of the original trilogy. Unspeakably terrible.

There're 2 big problems: Lucas seems incapable of drawing decent performances from either of the young leads & the kid-friendly comedy is groan worthy. Bad but less bothersome: the political machinations are also unclear. However, the action scenes are some of the best of the prequels, esp Fett vs Kenobi & the coliseum fight against monsters. It's especially thrilling to watch Padme kick a-s and save herself (bc it's always exciting to see regular humans manage to fight off what's much stronger)

Wow. I can't believe that Christensen made it even this far into showbiz. He's seriously one of the worst actors ever. Also the action sequences are among the most uninteresting in the series. The problem is that George Lucas basically masturbates in CGI backdrops. I mean, when special effects are crammed into every shot they're not so "special" anymore, are they?

(after repeat viewings) At least you don't have 10000 things happening at once, so you can finally focus on the action scenes and the story has somewhat improved since episode I. The scipt is still a total mess, though, and criticizing Christensen would be an exercise in futility; What's up with Obi-Wan's haircut ?

The CGI may seem dated, but it's still pretty, and perhaps now even nostalgic. The story isn't as bad as I initially remember, though that may be thanks to several years worth of context provided via the animated series. What truly lets this film down is the characterisation of Anakin...from the dismal script to the atrocious acting. Overall, it's spectacle that could have been so much more.

Rewatched it again after 18 years in my quest to understand why Star Wars is so influential on me. It is such an awkward, weak movie. Christensen is a disastrous choice for Anakin and the dynamic between him and Portman is all off (and kinda distasteful). Even the visual effects are off in this one. In a sci-fi movie, if the thing I admire the most is the clothes of the lead female character, there is something seriously wrong. Lucas created the ultimate villain and then went and ruined him.

As much as I hate the prequels out of principle alone, I will still always love them at the same time for what they are. Unconditionally. It's kind of like when a parent has one kid that's a huge asshole and whom they realize is taking complete advantage of them, but refuses to do anything about it because they can't help the love they have simply because it is their child. It's like that. I'm never more ashamed to say this as when I think about the "I hate sand" speech in this movie.

Lucas's clear mythic ambitions are combined once again and in a slightly awkward way with his penchant for borrowing from political history. These are hampered, as ever, by the all-important need to sacrifice all, whenever necessary, on the altar of commercial imperatives. Some of the backdrops are very pretty; other effects on occasion show the limits of digital technology at the turn of the 21st century. Greater emphasis on celebrating firepower in this episode. Comes to no real conclusion.

Let me start by saying I went into this with a bad attitude. I only watched it so I could watch Revenge Of The Sith. But even still, what a mess. Even after just finishing it, I'm still not entirely sure what happened. The romance scenes were laughably bad, the dialogue is horrible, the special effects weren't anything special (Two Towers were much better). There is really nothing to take away from this. I hate all the characters, and I'm sick of aliens being weird just for the sake of it.

I never realized how horrible this was until rewatching it eight years after its release. Every moment Christensen is on screen is torture, Portman gives one of her worst performances as well.

A misstep no doubt, but a misstep in the right direction after Phantom Menace. McGregor's Alec Guinness impersonation is spot-on, and his subplot here gives us our first real look at the Jedi as interstellar detectives. Unfortunately this sleuthing stuff is about as interesting as Clones gets on the story-front, and it accounts for less than a quarter of the film. The action sequences are bigger and better, but the dialog is also longer and worse. The love story here is excrutiating.

Meh, it's fun at times. Some of the action scenes in this are fairly exciting, Ewan McGregor is decent, and it's always nice to see Christopher Lee.

Portman looks more or less dead through the whole movie, and Christensen can't act his way out of a paper bag.

George Lucas takes his beloved "Star Wars" franchise and gives the fans more of what they had been clamoring for, poorly written political intrigue. The convoluted plot and forced love story were done no favors by George Lucas' writing. Nearly the entire film is 95% CGI in every frame. This over use of special effects inadvertently makes all the actual characters instantly feel out of place thus making everything they do feel even more unnatural than their tremendously stilted dialogue.

There is nothing good about this film. The characters are, at best, completely empty. At worst they are actually annoying. The plot is minimal, but where it exists it is unnecessarily complicated, contradictory, and drab. The action scenes are obviously choreographed doing nothing introduce or relieve tension in the story. The multitude of flaws to the Star Wars cannon are unforgivable and actually demean the original films. This movie made me angry, not only as a fan, but also as a human being.

The lowest lows of parts I through VI (Padmé - who seems to find it only releatively unfortunate that Anakin has slaughtered innocent children - tells him "To be angry is to be human", horrendously bad C3PO jokes, Samuel L. Jackson pretending to be a jedi) it has, but also some of the highs of I-III (an enticing mystery, nice pacing and some super cool shots of battle). If you can look past its biggest flaws, which are - in my opinion - limited to a handful of minutes, the rest is a lot of fun!

The worst installment in the neverending Star Wars series, A.O.T.C suffers from poor plotting, atrocious dialogue, wooden performances and CGI overload, which hasn't aged well. Lucas' decision to shoot digitally before the technology was ready was regrettable: the image is flat and two dimensional with a heavily restricted palette. The romantic subplot is also laughable: Christensen's robotic courtship is borderline creepy. Yoda's fight scene is the highlight, but it isn't enough to save it.

The action ramps up in this episode and Lucas' vision of serial sci-fi is hard and heavy here. Taking in all three of the new trilogy (Episode's 1-3) proves to me that Lucas' is a much better producer and writer than he is a director. He just can't seem to get the players to come out. This is why a film like Empire (directed by Irvin Kershner) is so fantastic in comparison.

If you could reduce yourself to the mindset of a 9-year-old, I could definitely see how one could get into The Phantom Menace, but I just can't figure out how this movie is any-age-appropriate. It has some eye-candy, but the plot won't be understood by anyone under the age of 13, and anyone over that age won't buy the wooden dialogue or the dynamic-less stagnation of the filmmaking or story. In my mind, the black sheep of the Star Wars series.

Set years after the events of Episode One, Attack of the Clones is Lucas's attempt to give fans the growth of beloved character Anakin Skywalker, unfortunately Lucas's questionable writing decisions lead to a bogged down, Love story that lacked any chemistry between Christensen's and Portman's characters. Along with a subpar performance from Christensen, Episode Two felt filler, with no antagonist and gives little growth to Anakin or the Star Wars lore as whole that Lucas missed again.
