Hmm....what to say......
I thought it kicked arse! Seriously, those reviewers are being too hard on it. It was really cool. Ewan McGregor, for all his hairiness, was gorgeous as ever. Hayden reminds me of James Dean a bit, especially when he was riding that bike-like vehicle on Tatooine. He's going to be awesome in the next one. I liked Natalie better in this one, and her wardrobe was way-cooler than the one in Episode 1. Thank God she got rid of the makeup! Natural beauty is so much more better. Their love story was nice too. I can't wait to see the continuation of this in the third film.
Umm, what else.....I'm glad to see Mace Windu again. I totally digged the purple lightsabre, and I'm glad that Lucas listened to him on that one. Less JarJar Binks! Woo-hoo! Actually, to be honest, since he wasn't in this one so much, I actually found him to be a bit funnier than I did in Episode 1.
I had alot of fun picking out all the Aussie actors in it. The female bounty hunter at the beginning is a young Aussie actress, Cliegg Lars is a very famous actor in our country, Owen Lars is too for that matter. Dorme was, Captain Typho was (he's also playing an Orc in the next LoTR film.)....you get the idea. Lots of home-grown talent.
The villains were cool. Christopher Lee was awesome. I just love his voice......I swear the man was born to play villains! Good forshadowing with Anakin and so forth.
I found it very amusing that Jango and Boba Fett had New Zealand accents (both were played by NZ actors for the record). I don't know why though....they sounded kinda out-of-place among all the English and American accents. It was sad (and everso slightly squicky) when poor little Boba saw the fate of his Father. Poor kid....and look how he turned out!
Oh, and one more thing. Yoda was by far the coolest! The whole audience were cheering when he got out his lightsabre. It was beyond cool. Things wanted for the next movie: more Yoda fighting!
And those little Padawans were just too cute. I was in full 'awwwww' mode when I saw them in their little Jedi outfits and helmets.
Ok, done reviewing for now. All in all, good film. Sure, these new ones aren't quite as brilliant as the old, but they're still good films and like a friend of mine said, they tell the story and fill us in.
