Ryan is watching the Star Wars Saga on Blu-Ray here’s what he thought of Episode 2…

| September 20, 2011

Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones gets the saga back on track. After the misstep of Episode I, Lucas had his work cut out for him and he mostly succeeds.

Taking place 10 years after the events of The Phantom Menace, Attack starts with an assassination attempt on Padme. The Jedi council decides to have Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker protect her. The Jedi’s soon learn however that there is an even more sinister plot at hand. Along the way Anakin starts flirting with the Darkside when he kills a whole tribe of Tusken Raiders after he finds his mother near death at their camp. When she dies in his arms he becomes unleashed. He also falls in love with Padme setting up his fall from grace in Episode III.

Gone is the worst part of Episode I and that’s Jar Jar Binks(mostly). His comic relief is replaced by C3PO and for some reason he is nowhere near as annoying. The movie also has some incredibly epic battles. The final battle between the clones and droids is amazing. Yoda finally gets in on some action and he doesn’t disappoint.  I remember seeing this in theaters and when Yoda drew his lightsaber the audience went nuts, all those memories came roaring back and brought a big smile to my face.

What plagued the first Episode comes back in this movie. Some of the acting is awful. The worst performance by far is Hayden Christensen. It seems that he never learned his lines and he doesn’t act he just reads his lines. It doesn’t help that some of the writing is clumsy and wooden, but some of the actors make it work, most notably is Ewan McGregor as Obi-Wan.

The movie looks spectacular in Hi-Def, way better then Episode I. CGI Yoda looks lifelike and the colors jump of the screen. The sound is a highlight again. Spaceships never sounded better. I didn’t catch any alterations in this movie maybe someone caught one just let me know.

I believe this movie is better and more focused then Episode I. Of course you can disagree, just hit me up below.

Grade: B
