"The people who slammed this kids' film were, guess what? bitter adult Star Wars fans who have refused to recognize the saga has moved onto the next generation. This is not a continuation of the live-action films, it is a computer animated interpretation of Tartakovsky's Clone Wars animated series, hence the super stylized faces and character designs. It's a great way to get young children, like my nephew who has never seen a Star Wars movie interested in the idea. Face it people, this is a kids' show and always will be. If you want the darker, more realistic side of the saga, wait for the live-action TV series to come. Relax, and enjoy the lighter side of Star Wars once in a while."
Best Movie of 2008?
John M. Abbott | 11/10/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)
"I thought this was a fantastic introduction to the new animated Clone Wars Cartoon. I thought characters were developed extremely well. We got to see something from Anikin besides the "I'm not understood" teenager, whose potential is being wasted.
We got to see a Star Wars movie that was not defined by special effects, instead focuses on story and characters. It also level set expectations for the new series. Remember folks, the new series is playing on the "Cartoon Network"...go figure it is aimed at kids. However, I felt they left plenty for adults without insulting us with sickly infantile characters like Jar-Jar.
Ahsoka acted like a teenager, because she was. Anikin responded in kind because he was not particularly well developed emotionally (remember, this is the guy who turned into the evil leader of the universe...that does not happen to stable people).
I have added this movie to my collection so I can see it a couple of times and to show my support for the Clone Wars series. It will probably not be my most watched movie in my collection (like We Were Soldiers), but my son (12 year old) and I (43 year old) will enjoy watching it together a couple of times and he will probably watch it until the plastic melts..."
Clone Wars better than you've heard

"Star Wars: The CLone Wars is better than you've heard.
The animation is stylish, inventive and something to behold. The characters are fun and the action is exciting. The music is also a new feel for Star Wars, with hints of its roots while branching out into new territory.
Thoroughly enjoyable, for old and new fans alike."
Better than I thought it would be

"So, I saw this originally in the theater. I mean, it's Star Wars, you have to experience Star Wars in the theater. I can now say I've seen every movie in said way (going back to '77). I went into it with no preconceived notions about it, only that it was a new Star Wars movie. I never saw a trailer or anything for this. It was something I started when the prequel came out. I wanted to know nothing about the movies before seeing them. So, ok, this was just an excuse to make a movie. The plot is cellophane thin. I am actually all right with that. The action scenes SCREAM Star Wars, Anakin and the other main characters are fleshed out a little more, and it is all in all good fun. It is geared for a younger audience, but so were all the others. Ahsoka is great. Even at her tender age, she is able to keep up with the likes of the Chosen One. Yes, there are certain characters that don't necessarily fit in with what most of us see as the Star Wars universe (Rotta, Ziro) but it was necessary for what story line there is. All in all, I enjoyed watching this and YES I do own this on DVD. I haven't been able to catch the series yet on Cartoon Network, but based on the movie (weak storyline and all), it has potential to expand, in a good way, the Star Wars Universe."
A Great Start for Youngsters, A Large Sandbox for Fans

"If you go into this new addition to the Star Wars universe with an open mind and a decent sense of the target demographic this movie was created for, you will undoubtedly have a great experience. I purchased this mainly for my 3 1/2 year old who absolutely loves all things Star Wars (much like his father!) and my expectations were that it was going to be a fun movie that doesn't take itself seriously. I was not disappointed and ended up loving the movie and the entirely new chapter of the Star Wars saga that is virtually limitless. While the characters don't engage in strong philosophical or intellectual debate, they do show some depth and do a good job of fitting into what we have come to expect from Star Wars dialogue - in fact, in some ways, it's even better than the prequels. The story is good for all audiences and the action is very fast-paced and engaging. Plus, the visuals on Blu Ray just make it that much more of a treat.
Yes, our beloved Star Wars is getting older with the years, but that doesn't mean we can't accept change that is meant to catapult our obsession to a new generation of viewers. The time frame in the Star Wars universe is one that is ripe for some intriguing stories and action-packed adventures, exploring characters and places that we have long wondered about. The animated series on Cartoon Network has been a real treat as well and I, for one, am very excited about the potential of this series."
