Now 20, young Anakin Skywalker (Hayden Christensen) is an apprentice to respected Jedi knight Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor). Unusually powerful in the Force, Anakin is also impatient, arrogant, and headstrong -- causing his mentor a great deal of concern. The pair are ordered to protect Padme Amidala (Natalie Portman), the former queen of the planet Naboo, now representing her world in the Galactic Senate. Someone is trying to assassinate her on… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This time the exposition is so thick that everyone except acolytes may tune out."
‑ Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
"The good news? Star Wars: Episode II -- Attack of the Clones is eons better than Star Wars: Episode I -- The Phantom Menace. The bad news? It's still not very good."
‑ Hazel-Dawn Dumpert, L.A. Weekly
"Sit back and enjoy fantastic, imaginative visuals."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"Lucas does not always recognize his limitations. This tends to make films of mixed quality. Still, there is always enough that is excellent to make them worth seeing."
‑ Mark R. Leeper, rec.arts.movies.reviews
"The special effects are remarkable, yet somehow numbing, and the film only partly lives up to the promise in the title of Lucas's company, Industrial Light and Magic."
‑ Philip French, Observer [UK]
"Christensen is a winning mix of sultry and sulky as the now older Anakin, while McGregor is finally beginning to relax as the mentor who understandably refuses to treat his moody pupil like a grown-up."
‑ , Time Out
"A commendable example of the sort of movie we once loved and then outgrew."
‑ Peter Rainer, New York Magazine
"It starts off briskly with some fantastic special effects and a great high-speed chase but then founders on the shores of bad script writing."
‑ Amber Wilkinson, Eye for Film
"Attack of the Clones emerges looking as bad as if not worse than its 1999 predecessor, thanks to the lame romantic subplot, which is so badly written, directed and performed that it surpasses Jar-Jar Binks as the all-time low point in the series."
‑ Steve Biodrowski, ESplatter
"While it lacks the quality of Empire's script and performances, Clones is the most visually enthralling of the series so far."
‑ Jeffrey Overstreet, Looking Closer
"Lucas has never been able to conjure another Han Solo, a character who could, with simply a wink, remind us that this was just an overgrown Saturday afternoon serial."
‑ Bill Muller, Arizona Republic
"The scale of the enterprise is thrilling; it's too bad the movie is so muddled on so many different levels."
‑ David Edelstein, Slate
"Though, lacking in plotline it makes up for in action and entertainment."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Makes The Phantom Menace seem like one long clearing of the throat before Lucas could begin to tell the real story."
‑ Matthew De Abaitua, Film4
"It is certainly better than the childish Phantom Menace and the final 45 minutes of straight action beat the editing nightmare at the end of the last film."
‑ Joe Lozito, Big Picture Big Sound
