I went to see 'Attack of the Clones' last night with the reasonable expectation that at least it should be better than 'the Phantom Menace'. Well it is. But as a movie it's still shit shit shit shit shit...it features the most unconvincing goulash of cliches that has ever been presented as a love story and the Federation/Republic conflict storyline is confusing and impossible to follow. I admit the action sequences look good and trump those in the last movie. However even the late appearence of Christopher Lee reprising his role of Saruman in LOTR isn't enough to save this turkey. This review in Salon pretty much agrees with my thoughts on the film. They should seriously think about bringing back Harrison Ford for the next one ...or at least Chewbacha.
