Famed archaeologist/adventurer Dr. Henry "Indiana" Jones is called back into action when he becomes entangled in a Soviet plot to uncover the secret behind mysterious artifacts known as the Crystal Skulls.
Ten years after the 'Phantom Menace' threatened the planet Naboo, Padmé Amidala is now a Senator representing her homeworld. A faction of political separatists, led by Count Dooku, attempts to assassinate her. There are not enough Jedi to defend the Republic against the threat, so Chancellor Palpatine enlists the aid of Jango Fett, who promises that his army of clones will handle the situation. Meanwhile, Obi-Wan Kenobi continues to train the young Jedi Anakin Skywalker, who fears that the Jedi code will forbid his growing romance with Amidala. Written by
The scene of Obi-Wan contacting Mace Windu and Yoda was originally shot with Windu behind a desk. The crew claims the scene had a "film noir" feel to it, but ultimately ended up redoing it because it did not seem appropriate to the look and feel of the Star Wars universe. See more »

Actors Jerome Blake, Hassani Shapi, Gin Clarke, Khan Bonfils, Michaela Cottrell and Dipika O'Neill Joti are credited for playing the same Jedi Council members as in Episode I, although they did not film any new footage for Episode II. Instead the Jedi Council scene uses recycled footage from Episode I. Many of those parts were re-cast (or in some cases renamed) for Episode II, during the Battle of Geonosis, using Australian actors, but they are not credited. See more »
Easily the most tedious film of the year and of the series and of the genre. You'd find better action sequences on a cheap games console and better acting in a primary school production of the wizard of oz. And the blame lies squarely on Lucas' shoulders. This kind of dialogue would get you kicked out of film school. Dribbled with strained references to the original series and delivered with the verve of a George W. Bush speech on international trade agreements. The only people who come out relatively unscathed are the traditionally camped-up hammer-horror-style bad guys and Ewan McGregor's continuing pastiche of Alec Guinness. The "romantic" leads are like being forced to watch the world's least interesting high-school sweethearts pretending to have a squabble. Wait until it appears on DVD then at least you can edit it down to a three minute Natalie Portman fashion shoot and fifty seconds of yoda break-dancing.
