    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

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