Consensus: Though it still suffers from an overabundance of exposition, the action quotient is upped considerably in Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones, which makes it an improvement over The Phantom Menace.

This time the exposition is so thick that everyone except acolytes may tune out.

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.

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.

A commendable example of the sort of movie we once loved and then outgrew.

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.

David Edelstein

The scale of the enterprise is thrilling; it's too bad the movie is so muddled on so many different levels.

Though, lacking in plotline it makes up for in action and entertainment.

Lucas' visual effects, grand though they may be, cannot disguise groan worthy scripting in this, his return to his trend setting magnum opus. Of course,… More
