Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones
Episode II picks up about a decade after Episode I. Anakin has a full on rat-tail and is now Obi-Wan’s young padawan. The back-and-forth banter between the two is one of the best things about the writing here on out. The acting is still mostly one dimensional even with the A-list actors like Samuel L. Jackson, Christopher Lee, and Ewan McGregor on board; again, this is mostly due to sketchy writing that isn’t consistent throughout. The biggest thing we were introduced to was the origin of the clones using Jango Fett’s DNA. The love conflict with Padme and Anakin is still painstakingly awkward so there’s no real way of forgetting that. In between we also get introduced to parents of other characters from the original. We get Uncle Owen and Senator Organa among some other familiar names. So while these movies may not have had the punch of the originals, I have to admit they were still fun to watch.
