Summary: Good replacement
Comment: After the kids loosing most of the Star Wars movies on an airplane, this proved to be a good way of replacing them. This seller sent exactly what he promised and it is every bit the same quality of what I lost. Glad to have my movie back without purchasing it at full price.

Summary: The Force Is With Me
Comment: Here we go again. Another star wars movie with a twist...its animated. I am not a avid star wars fan, however, I have seen the new trilogy not the old one. I was excited to finally see this movie and I wasn't disappointed. The plot was simplistic at best and wasn't bombarded with idle chit-chat. It was a thrill ride from beginning to end, I don't care about the naysayers have to say. I felt that the movie was fresh, a nice change of pace, amazing feature film. The action never stifled or faltered it kept up with the film. The relationship between Anakin and the padawan was incredibly deep and moving. I felt a connection and was rewarded. If you are a crazed star wars fan you will nick pick this movie to death. Watch this movie because it was to the point and filled with action. I recommend this film.

Summary: Good but not great
Comment: I just finished watching `The Clone Wars' & to be honest it was pretty good. No it's not as good as the movies & it's not as intense as the Samurai Jack-esk `Clone Wars' shorts from 2003 but then again it's NOT supposed to be like ANY of those. It's like comparing apples to oranges.
ALSO keep in mind that Lucas is trying to broaden his appeal to kids with this movie's style & story telling as well as with the series on CTN so it's going to be, over all, a bit more simple in its execution but no less entertaining. Don't watch this expecting an Oscar performance. It is a CGI CARTOON! how frick'n serious/ critical are you supposed to take it? The action has more of an Episode 2 feel to it, for me at least, but the action sequences are just as long, fun & still `edgy' for a kid's CGI cartoon. They flowed well & were non-stop action. Clone troopers got it pretty bad in this movie and the lightsaber fights left me wanting more. They were pretty good for CGI though. It held my interest. The dialogue could have used a little help but what star wars movie couldn't? I wouldn't recommend buying this movie until you see it first but if you keep in mind the target audience is more kid than adult & remember what this movie is supposed to be/ do & you don't take it as seriously as some, then you should have fun & you'll be just fine. Anakin's apprentice is there for the young girls as well as to be the little miss know it all pain in the butt for Anakin the way he was to Ben (it's called irony). She does shoot her mouth off a bit much so she may be a bit annoying for some out there (I didn't find her that annoying but she could use some work) but comparable to jar jar? Not even close.
`TCW' story line isn't a major one in the Star Wars universe; it feels more like a made for TV movie, but it does initiate the TV series so there is a broader story to set up here as well.
Simple, aims at a broader audience (hint.... kids) & still a fun watch, if only once, in my opinion.
I say rent it first, watch it for what it is & go from there.

Summary: Animation is the best media to convey Star Wars saga!
Comment: I have been a fan of the Star Wars Saga since the very beginning. I have loved all the popular movie characters just like every other big fan and had no interest in seeing the cartoon (really!). I went to see the movie only because my kids wanted to see it (and they are too young to go by themselves!). Despite myself, I was really impressed. It was pretty awesome which is saying something when you consider how many movies one sees by the time one is "middle-aged"! I think this is just the style of medium George Lukas needs to convey the rest of the story. Animation is just so versatile! Good show George and Thanks!

Summary: Not Your Father's Star Wars
Comment: I like animated films..not just from Disney, even some computer animation films like Toy Story. However when it comes to this animated version of the Clone Wars, I suggest you use the force and pass this dvd by. The animation of this film reminds me of the WII, Playstation or DS versions of the Force Unleased game. This animation is one step up from Lego Star Wars


The action in this film is filled with action dog fights in space and battles on the ground with a pencil thin plot of the Jedis saving the kidnapped Jabba the Hut's child.


So why else didn't I like it? I love the Cartoon Network's original Clone Wars ( Star Wars - Clone Wars, Vol. 1) that was done a few years ago. This film is a pilot for the new Cartoon Network series. If this film is an example what to expect in the future I would pass on the series.

The character interplay is weak at best. Ankin and Ben seems more disrespectful to each other, not like in the movies. Ankin is also saddled with his own Padawan. She seems over cocky like he is..and since she isnt in the live action movies...well you can read the handwritting on animated wall


The Vocal talents of Samuel Jackson and Christopher Lee is wasted in this cartoon.

So if you are a fan of Star Warsin general, here is another film to add to your collection. I wont say it is worth no stars, but I wont say it was five star either.. SO Use the FORCE and make the right choice. However after seeing this DVD, my JEDI sense says AVOID young Jedi
