Star Wars : Episode II - Attack of the Clones (2002)

'Attack of the Clones' picks up the events ten years after the successful overthrowing of the blockade put up by the Trade Federation on Planet Naboo

The Story continues as:

There is unrest in the Galactic Senate. Several thousand solar systems have declared their intensions to leave the republic.

The separatist movement under the leadership of count Dooku has made it difficult for the limited Jedi Knights to maintain peace and order in the galaxy.

Senator Amidala, the former queen of Naboo, is returning to the galactic senate to vote on the critical issue of creating an ARMY OF THE REPUBLIC to assist the overwhelmed Jedi……..”

Well, Episode II was unquestionably an improvement compared to its forerunner, still there had been a feeling of expecting something more. We are introduced to teenage Jedi 'Anakin Skywalker' well enacted by Hayden Christensen. Here we are shown some more distant parts of the galaxy and some quick look to groundwork preparation for the war against the separatist. Begin of the bond between Anakin & Amidala was well portrayed; perhaps the best part of the movie. More emphasis has been given on the action and it was well delivered while showing the battle between the droid and the clone army. We get to see some vicious galactic war machines with imposing special effects.
As usual some comic moments are kept alive by our much loved droids R2 D2 & C-3PO.

There had been a huge scope for improvement and it clearly showed in 'Attack of the Clones'. This episode strengthened the trilogy and gave us hope. It was only matter of time to see whether Lucas was successful enough to deliver us with even more better outcome, in his next sequel thus completing the saga.

Till then 'may the force be with you…'

My Rating : 7/10
