I have been waiting for the release of Attack Of The
Clones for quite a while already. Always when you expect
much from something the chances for getting disappointed
is quite high. Will George manage to lift Star Wars
back to where it should be (just to say it:I loved TPM
as well)? The answer is short and it's YES YES YES!
I love this film!
The rest contains some spoilers!
All the locations are so beautiful. We get to see more
of the complex Coruscant, we travel to the water planet
Kamino where we learn more about Janga, Boba Fetts father.
Geonosis a world built of rocks makes the arena of the
biggest lightsaber fight we have seen and maybe ever
will. And we go back to familiar places like Naboo and
Tatooine. Nice to be back at Luke's home again. Naboo
is more beautiful than ever and of course the arena
for the love part of the movie.
ILM has again managed to lift the level of realism
in CGI. Where TPM sometimes looked "not real"
AOTC doesn't and you never think that this isn't real.
How they will top this in episode-III I can't tell,
but I'm certain they will.
It is very interesting to see a movie where you know
most of what must happen, but still don't know how the
story would be told. The story is getting darker all
the time and we gets to see more of how and why Anakin
turns to the dark side.
Yoda has somehow gotten a different look and
feel when he became all digital, but he also gave us
the most ultimate show ever. After seeing Yoda
using the force you really know that you don't wanna
mess with this guy. He is just awesome. Who else can
gather up a Sith's lightning attack in a ball and throw
it back and make it look so easy. He gave us the final
prove about who really knows the force. On top of that
he is a hell of an actor :)
I have often wondered if this little guy really could
use a lightsaber. And by that I have done the same mistake
as Luke ones did - judged him by his size. This is the
most fantastic lightsaber fight I have ever seen. His
words from Empire - "Judge me by my size, do
you? Hm?" got a new meaning while I tried to
reconnect my jaws to my head. I really hope that he
will get the chance to finish his little lightsaber
fight with Dooku in the next movie without the need
to baby-sit young "wannabe" masters as Anakin
I guess I have to see the DVD version frame by frame
to actually see what really happens in all the amazing
scenes in this film. But before that I gonna see it
on the big screens many more times!
After the movie was over the crowd gave it a big
applause so I think everyone was pleased with it.
Is it the best Star Wars ever? Well that's quite
a hard question to answer cause although this movie
is much like The Empire Strikes Back it is also in another
league or should I say galaxy than anything seen before
when it comes to imagery and effects. Actually there
is no need to answer the question at all, cause Star
Wars isn't 6 different films it's one story. Think of
the day when you can sit down and watch all 6 films
end to end. The only thing that would beat that is that
George gives us episode VII-IX.
Thank you George Lucas for making this fantastic
