What can I say about the new chapters of the great saga of the &quot;Far-distant Galaxy&quot;?To say that it is amazing, that it is exciting and that it is fascinating - means to say nothing.<br/><br/>The series seemed to have poured new blood into the Star Wars. And now the fact that I was impressed with him:<br/><br/>1. Clones ... for the first time in the history of the series (including numerous comic books, books, games and individual stories) the clones showed LIVE! From now on, these are not soulless faceless machines for murders. These are ordinary people, just like you or me. They also think, they experience, they feel and feel fear. For the first time in the history of the series, my heart bleeds when another soldier settles on the ground with a black hole in white mandororian armor. Each clone is like a brother and at the same time is incredibly unique. This is shown especially well in the series (it seems first, but perhaps the memory changes me), where Master Yoda with a bunch of clones had to make his way to the ruler of no-remember-what-planet to conclude a contract before Darth Tiranus (Count Dooku in the common people). It is there that the great Yoda reveals to each of his brothers his uniqueness.<br/><br/>2. Music. Well ... what can I say. The music of John Williams is, of course, good. But ... it is a little outdated (in my case - fed up). In addition, it absolutely does not approach the action, which unfolds in the series. Kevin Kainer was able not only to create an atmosphere of what is happening. His compositions literally tell us what&#39;s happening on the screen, perfectly fitting into the picture (although it would have been perfectly listened to without it).<br/><br/>3. Graphics. Many scold this series and full-length for the graphic component. I do not know about you, but I liked it. And George Lucas, too. In one of his interviews, he said that he specifically decided to use just such a graphic style.<br/><br/>4. Humor. A good deal of sound humor is also there. If someone says that the droids joke flatly and in a way that is not funny, then do not believe this person, because most likely he does not have a sense of humor, or he did not hear, but learned about it from the stories of one deaf-mute (yes forgive me these people, for I did not mean anything insulting). If many of the droid&#39;s phrases are simply ridiculous, then some make you literally cry with laughter.<br/><br/>5. The plot. I&#39;m delighted that I can finally see what happened during the clone war, so I&#39;ll add it to this list.<br/><br/>6. Action. Neither in a fairy tale, nor describe with a pen. Such brutal battle scenes you have never seen, and camera work just blows the roof) Music adds effect.<br/><br/>Bottom line: what do we get as a result? A grinding blend that is svezhakom in the saga.But the most important thing here is the mapping of clones. The number of Jedi here is quite understandable, since this is the series of fighters in white armor. Honestly, I would gladly have looked at all six episodes again if they were re-released in the same style.

This film is gonna have two sets of detractors. One set will be of people dying to see George Lucas crash and burn because they didn&#39;t like the prequels. The other will be people who, regardless of their feelings about the previous movies will enter with an ill conceived expectation for a great story. The rest of you, like me will have a blast watching this thing.<br/><br/>This movie is basically an extended pilot for a soon to premiere animated series and it plays as such. We are introduced to our characters, some new and some old and watch them set out on missions that take them through hair raising battle after hair raising battle. There is no conclusion, yet no cliff hanger, just a solitary mission, another day in the lives of Anakin Skywalker and Obi Wan Kenobi. In other words, no attempt at any great earth shattering plot, just a lot of good solid action and fun. Whether or not the TV series will develop more complicated story arcs and sub plots is only known by its creators right now, but its the simplicity that works here. I went into this movie expecting nothing but big action, cool characters and a slick look, and that&#39;s exactly what I got. The heart of the Star Wars franchise has always been its fun, and this is a cartoon...they&#39;re taking advantage of the opportunity to take the explosive larger than life elements of the films and skew them to an altered animated reality...which is what makes cartoons worth watching.<br/><br/>I loved the design of the whole thing too. It is very graphic and unique and I can understand that it may not be everyone&#39;s cup of tea but for me it&#39;s a great look. In a time when movie theaters are saturated with CG animated fair, many of which are so concerned with out doing one another with their increasingly real skin textures and bump mapping, it&#39;s refreshing to see a film that wants to be different. If you want something to look real, you might as well get a camera. For those of you who thought this graphic simplistic look was some kinda time/money saver, give yourself a shake, they wanted it to look this way. And if you&#39;re an animator like myself...take note.<br/><br/>Bottom line, you&#39;re not gonna walk out of this movie a different person, and its not gonna win any awards...but it&#39;s a hell of a lot of fun.

I went to see &quot;The Clone Wars&quot; with carefully measured expectations, given the very, very mixed critical reaction. Although I say &quot;critical&quot;, it&#39;s always best to remember that angry nerds with broadband are not film critics. But even the venerable and generally even-handed Roger Ebert didn&#39;t have much good to say about it.<br/><br/>After the strange feeling of seeing the &quot;Warner Bros&quot; logo and hearing &quot;As Time Goes By&quot; in place of the Fox logo and fanfare, the film gets off to an inauspicious start - a rendition of John Williams&#39; Star Wars Main Theme played by The London Philharmonic&#39;s cheapest non-union Mexican equivalent. And instead of the opening crawl, we get a montage and voice-over in a 1930s serial style. This will probably work well in the TV series, and there&#39;s nothing wrong with it, but seems strangely out of place in the cinema. This may be just because the traditional Star Wars crawl is so ingrained in film-goers minds, but it was an undeniable jolt. But from that point forward it gets better.<br/><br/>Visually it&#39;s like nothing I&#39;ve ever seen - instead of the style of CGI animation that we&#39;re now used to, the characters are made to look something like hand-painted wooden puppets. In a close-up shot you can actually see the brush strokes where the clone troopers have been &quot;painted.&quot; It&#39;s a brave creative decision, given that Pixar, Dreamworks and others have had such great success with the more traditional style of CG animation, to take such a different direction. After I became accustomed to it, I really liked it. The animation has good &quot;weight&quot; to it - nothing ever suffers from the disconnected CGI unreality that often plagues the digital effects in live-action films (including 2002&#39;s &quot;Attack of the Clones&quot;). The environments are amazingly well realised, including a hand-painted sky which conjures up a nice balance between traditional and CG animation.<br/><br/>Sonically, it&#39;s Star Wars all the way. All the classic sounds are there (lightsabers, blasters, walkers and so on) and are well orchestrated to the action. Musically, they&#39;ve gone some way to doing what I had hoped they might - using John Williams&#39; themes, but taken in a new direction. There&#39;s a much more pronounced world music feel, and I really enjoyed that. When the score moves to a full orchestral piece, it sometimes falls a little flat. But it certainly serves its purpose, with only the main theme pulling me out of the moment.<br/><br/>Plot-wise... well, it&#39;s Star Wars. There&#39;s a MacGuffin that must be found and returned to gain a tactical advantage in the war. Any further discussion of the plot would probably be wasted... and not just to avoid spoilers - it&#39;s all about the action. So... is there action? Oh, yes. Quite a lot of it. Too much, in fact. As a TV series in 30 minute installments, it should be amazing. But welded into one feature-length adventure, it&#39;s a bit overpowering. The visual inventiveness helps hold interest as yet another battle unfolds, but the fact that it&#39;s essentially 3 or 4 episodes joined together does show. Not enough to make it a bad film... but when the end comes it *seems* to be an anti-climax purely because there&#39;s been no let-up for the previous 30 minutes. As such, the end seems to arrive very suddenly. Had it been structured a little more like a feature, it might have managed a better finale. But, taken on its own merits, the action is very well realised.<br/><br/>The new, kid-oriented character of Ahsoka is not particularly annoying - and that&#39;s about as much as you can ask from the this sort of character. Aged above 15, I&#39;m not the target audience for Ahsoka&#39;s rite of passage story. Jabba&#39;s son is virtually inanimate... barely a character at all. Jabba the Hutt&#39;s uncle Ziro is bizarre - a sort of tattooed, New Orleans drag queen in huge slug form - but neither particularly annoying nor offensive as some reviewers have claimed. A kind of Vivien Leigh-as-Blanch DuBois (or maybe Truman Capote) to the Sydney Greenstreet-inspired Jabba.<br/><br/>Overall, this is a good, fun animated adventure with excellent action sequences, that works well despite some pacing issues. It deserves credit for developing its own unique visual style, and daring to take liberties with a well-established franchise. In the end, its this willingness to challenge that much-loved formula that will provoke the ire of many a middle-aged Star Wars fan, as they clutch their Millennium Falcon scale replicas to their portly man-bosoms. But it may find more favour with the newer generation of fan who have less attachment to the memory of what they think they saw in a cinema, and a childhood, a long, long time ago.
