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: 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.
Conclusion: This is'nt a bad star wars film to watch, the story is o.k, the actors try to fill in the best they can for the original actors and the animation is cool, its not the best star wars movie but can keep you entertained for a while.
