Everybody's a critic - 'Star Wars - Episode II'
"Star Wars: Attack of the Clones" is filled with amazing digital special effects and imaginative alien creatures. As often occurs, the action goes on too long with many false endings.
The movie advances the story of how the character who becomes Darth Vader starts down the path to the "dark side." Only robots C3-PO and R2-D2 have been in every episode virtually unchanged and, as usual, add levity in addition to saving the heroine.
The acting in the first half of the movie is stiff and wooden except for Ewan McGregor. In the second half, the acting improves as the romance between the two main characters develops. Christopher Lee is excellent as the villain.
I expected to be bored but am now looking forward to the next installment to see how the hero of this movie becomes Darth Vader.
