movement in the Federation who wants independanence from the Federation and the galaxy is on the brink of Civil War.
Former Queen Padmé whose now a galatic Senater is the target of a assassin. Obi-Wan and Anakin have been sent to Protect
and uncover the mystery of the Assassin.
This is a perfect prequel, I'm glad that Lucas didn't give in to the nay sayers and quit on Jar Jar Binks. I for a party
of one like Jar Jar, even if he's not always understandable. Now let's move on to effects, they are perfect as well. The same
Nay Sayers are complaining that Lucas destroyed the "purity" of the original films by creating these prequels. But
if they were as devoted as they claim, then they would have known that Lucas planned this all along. The new characters are
great, Christopher Lee is always menacing and as Darth Tyranus, he is really menacing. I really can't say anything bad about
Star Wars, I have been a fan since it first came out when I was just a kid, but I'm not narrow minded like some and I love
this new set of movies. I give EPISODE II a perfect 10 STARS.
I agree with Zedd for the most part, except one thing. While Obi-Wan was following Jango, Anakin was guarding Padme and falling
in love. Since when is sex a path to the dark side, love is a good thing. I'm sorry but if becoming a Jedi means giving
up sex or become evil, then I won't become a Jedi. 9 STARS.
ON THE POSITIVE SIDE (+ HITS):
+ CREATURE EFFECTS (Best damn creature effects.)
+ EFFECTS (The effects are assume.)
+ CHARACTERS (Love the characters.)
+ STORY (The story works.)
ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES):
- NO LOVE? (What are these Jedis, Samurais or Monks?)
- FAN BASED (Some purist don't like the new prequels.)
