No. It's called Attack of the Clones because it has clones, and they attack...

After seeing this film a few times, I am still confused by the title. I don't want to give anything away, but maybe after some of you see it tonight, you can help me with this one?? I just have a problem with one of the words in the title.

In regards to the script of the Phantom Menace..it was a GREAT script. Anyone who knew anything going into it knew the next three parts was about one thing, that being the evolution of Darth Vader. It was not about cloning (pardon the pun) the original trilogy. The Phantom Menace does a great job setting up AOTC.

Anyway, to each their own.

I laughed out loud at that and people in my office looked at me like I was wack. Thank you very much.

I just got back from a midnight showing about 45 minutes ago, and I really enjoyed this movie! The cinematography is extraordinary. The story is good...it gets a little slow in spots, but that's to be expected with a movie that runs about 2-1/2 hours.

I thought the acting was fine, and better than that in the other episodes I'd seen (4,5,6). And the story did a fabulous job of setting the stage for episode 3--I wish I could see that tomorrow!

And I must say that Ewan MacGregor is a hottie! Gorgeous!!!

Don't listen to the critics on this one. See it ASAP...you'll want to go back and see it again!

The plot in Episode II is suberb, almost as good as the oldies.

The acting as always been awkward. I mean mark hamel and Harrison were both sub-standard, IMO - just pretty stiff sometimes.
This movie had great acting.
Great battle scenes.
great monsters! - I love the monster with the "knife feet"

here's my insight, you know... i always wanted to be a reviewer, i mean, it looks like the easiest job in the world:

THERE ARE A HEAP OF SPOILERS IN THIS POST!

yep, this movie was WAY BETTER! than the phantom menace, hmm... its not the 2nd worst either, but it needs to stand the test of time to tell

anyway there were plusses and negatives, everyone's a movie critic, and starwars is big part of a lot of people's lives, to the point its more than a movie, more like a RELIGION, that and i have the right to cut and pick away at this film, george is making his billions (if not millions) off me

Plusses
the bad guy is cool, way better than darth maul in the first episode, he looks impossible to kill, angry and full of ATTITUDE

didnt get to see much of jar jar binks

the movie was not aimed at 12 year olds anymore

the movie didnt suffer from blind unoriginality like the first one did, there were a heap of things which wouldnt have made us say: been there, done that this time around

ewan mcgregor is always giving a good honest job, despite the fact he hasnt got the greatest lines.

samuel l jackson (thankfully) has a firmer role in this film, but we still await his moment in the trilogy yet, one suspects, someone make him TALK!

it was nice to see 3PO and r2d2 take the comic relief spotlight after failing so miserably with jar jar binks


Negatives

Sloppy storytelling- george is either losing his touching, but he fails to highlight important moments like he used to: when anakin wreaked out his vengeance on all the tatooine slave-dealers, it was treated as a sideshow, rather than something of significance, the pace of the movie was a problem with insignificant events moving very slowly, whereas significant ones such as the one i brought up, is washed away like markings on the sands of a beach

theres still a bit of work needed on the dialogue, hayden christenssen cant hold together 2 lines, and his flabby yank accent makes him goofy sounding, for someone who is spoken to be a great warrior, he sure isnt majestic

hmm it seems rather unfortunate starwars has become more reknown for its special effects, creative looking creatures and action sequences rather than a drama film
and that was what was truly underrated in the first trilogy, the tacky dialogue
one key of the first trilogy was DEFINITELY Harrison Ford and his space pirate act, that is sadly missing in this 2nd trilogy, i mean i was SO waiting for a tacky punchline to come out

a few things which have happened more than once for the trilogy, eg: young anakin skywalker flying a plane and blowing up an enemy base, and in the 2nd part, him getting his hand sliced off

anyway ive written enough, i hope i havent bored you

cant wait til 2005/6

She said comeover comeover
She smiled at you boy.

SO much better than Phantom Menace!!!

It really has the feel of the originals I think, a lot more than PM anyway. The humour is back with 3PO and R2. I think Ewan is doing a great performance as Obi Wan.

I enjoyed it, hardly any Jar Jar which is always a great thing.

My final comments ...Yoda... light sabre ... BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Hey everyone!
I`ve seen the movie yesterday, Don`t you all wanna know what I think about it?! Good... BEcause I`m gonna tell you anyway!
First of all a few important Deails to pay attention to:
1. Yoda`s fighting scene-now THAT`S what I call a jedy!!!
2. The body Hunter(s) was Hispanic. SO does his "son" (I`m trying by best here not to spoil it for people...) . What do you think that means?! just wondering
3. At a sertain point, Natalie`s fihgting outfit "gets shorter" . Can`t figure out how that happend. Did she change the shirt while fighting?!?!?!
4. The ending?! Is perfect!!! (Of course I wount spoil it for you...)
As for the movie ,well I loved it very much. Even my boyfriend (who "Hates that expenssive ,overacted shit") loved every minute of it. Don`t listen to the critics ,they don`t know what they`re talking about. One thing is for sure, I think Star wars has a very good chance to win the "special affect" cathegory .

Any way- GO WATCH IT, ENJOY IT, AND CHEAR YODA, HE DESERVES IT!!!


May the force be with you all!

Glad you enjoyed it Memphis Eve, but I would like to address some of your observations...

"2. The body Hunter(s) was Hispanic. SO does his "son" (I`m trying by best here not to spoil it for people...) . What do you think that means?! just wondering"

I think you mean BOUNTY Hunter Jango and Boba Fett, right? Well, they're NOT hispanic, though they're swarthiness might seem it so, they're basically MAORI, or atleast Jango Fett is, and you can pick this up everytime the man speaks, and his son is definately NOT hispanic (I should know, since I'm hispanic). Again, like PHANTOM, CLONES has been receiving accusations of being racist, which is completely absurd. Even if Jango and Boba were hispanic, it doesn't mean anything at all.

"3. At a sertain point, Natalie`s fihgting outfit "gets shorter" . Can`t figure out how that happend. Did she change the shirt while fighting?!?!?!"

No, her shirt was wripped by the Nexu when she was in the arena, remember, that was ripped off and so she either took it off at one point, or it fell off during the massive fight.

Again, glad you enjoyed the film,and for those who haven't seen it yet... do! Its amazing!
