Movie Review of Star Wars: The Clone Wars


The Star Wars saga continues in animated form: Jabba the Hut's son has been kidnapped and it is up to Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker to rescue him. Otherwise, Jabba will side with the Seperatists and close the trade routes to the embattled Galactic Republic. While fighting off hordes of battledroids, a Togrutan girl named Ashoka Tano is assigned to Anakin as his padawan.
Christopher Lee, Anthony Daniels and Samuel L. Jackson lend their voices to their respective movie characters. While the rest of the cast are voiced by lesser known actors.
This film serves to fill in the gap between Episode II & III. Apparently The Clone Wars will be, if it isn't already is, a weekly series. George Lucas insisted on the movie's blocky, 3D animation as an homage to Japanese anime and British supermarionation. He also didn't want his latest creation to be compared to the latest CGI movies.
Whatever.
The movie's been panned by film critics since its release this past summer. Reading reviews on Amazon.com doesn't help because critques of the all the other Star Wars films are lumped in to the review section.
I give this movie 3-stars. I wasn't dissappointed, but I wasn't "wowed" by it either. I thought the soundtrack was the most interesting part of the film. The music sounded like a New Age/Tribal version of the original Star Wars score.

LOL! I'm glad I just rented it too. It was what I expected and I thought the soundtrack was interesting to listen to.

I kept looking at the time on the DVD player wondering when the pain would be over. # stars is 2 too many. Thank goodness it was only a rental.
