    The dark fantasist in Lucas makes a comeback after years of once-over-lightly. show more

    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    Lucas knows his fans are un-boreable, un-annoyable and inexhaustible. For an artist, that's more a curse than a blessing. show more

    As for the breathless 45-minute climax, no screen fantasy adventure in memory can match the showmanship. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    For all its video-game bedazzlements, Attack of the Clones suffers from severe digital glut, periodically relieved, if you can call it that, by amateur theatrics. show more

    Clones makes the Frodo-speak of "Lord of the Rings" sound like Noel Coward. show more

    Jack Mathews New York Daily News

    The overall effect of Lucas' digital mania has been detrimental to the saga. Where the first trilogy was mythological fantasy, the second is pure cartoon. The sad truth is, the more three-dimensional they look, the more two-dimensional they are. show more

    Attack of the Clones celebrates a certain youthful spirit in both moviemaking and movie watching; because it's as much phenomenon as movie, audiences will either ride with or reject it. I was happy to take the ride. show more

    In a time when, more often than not, sequels disappoint, it's refreshing to uncover something this high-profile that fulfils the promise of its name and adds another title to a storied legacy. show more

    As the sequence builds, it accretes so many heroic and nightmarish associations it plays like a prelude to apocalypse, which of course will come in Episode III. Attack of the Clones is part soda pop, part witches' brew - and all visual ambrosia. show more

    Honestly, I didn\'t like the story of this movie. It\'s effects were great but just wasn\'t interesting because the old movies were facinating because you never expected it for it\'s time. I liked Jango and was good but not that entertaining.

    Its more of a love story, and its more boring. But the action scenes do as heck deliver!!! Its a fine fit.
