I've been waiting impatiently for three years for Episode II and the wait was most definitely worth it. Episode II blows away all previous Star Wars movies, with the exception of the original. Actually, the film recaptures much of the spirit and magic of the original.
The story is excellent and pure science fiction. It effectively mixes action, adventure, mystery and even love. Now I'm hardly a fan of love stories, but I thought Episode II pulled off the love scenes very well. But, of course, the best parts of any Star Wars movie are the fight scenes. The massive battle with the clone army was fantastic and the fight scene with Count Dooku was excellent, making use of the fantastic special effects.
The acting was, of course, great. Ewan McGregor and Natalie Portman deliver excellent performances once again. Hayden was actually pretty good as Anakin Skywalker, despite what some say. The other actors were also very good.
The only bad thing about this movie was the subtitle, 'Attack of the Clones'. Otherwise, thumbs up! After seeing Episode II, I can't wait for Episode III.
