Summary: Not a bad addition to the Star Wars universe. I liken it to one of the many Star Wars novels that have been written made into a film. The target audience is definitely children, but there's enough here to satisfy fans of all ages.
Summary: The Star Wars universe attempts to break ground through computer animation. The outcome is a bevy of retreaded, yawn outloud, and block figured characters attempting to solve a kidnapping conspiracy.
Summary: This latest addition to the Star Wars lexicon introduces a bevy of new villains and a huge amount of battles, but it leaves too many characters out of the picture (like Obi-Wan, Mace Windu, Yoda, Padme, etc.
Excerpt: Even though it will play better when broken down into 20+ minute segments, I kind of liked "Star Wars: The Clone Wars". Not as much as the previous animated effort, of course, but it nevertheless fits in to the Star Wars universe with a little getting-used-to.
Excerpt: I wasn't expecting too much going into this. I knew there was a Star Wars animated series coming up, but the powers that be decided a feature film should be introduced first. They probably should have just made a 2-hour premiere on TV instead.
Conclusion: Despite some of the reviews here, I really liked this. I'm a big Star Wars fan and I find this movie does a great job at sticking to the Star Wars universe, its humour, its setting, its concept and its style.
Conclusion: After the new Star Wars trilogy, George Lucas brought out this, a 3D version of the short 2D cartoons released a few years back. However, with all the money he's made, would it have been so hard to make the characters look more realistic?
Conclusion: Having only briefly heard of this animated version of Star Wars I approached this with caution. But when it comes to Star Wars you have to see it anyway. It took a while to get over the graphics used to create the world. When the characters moved they did so very clumsily.
