As the Clone Wars sweep through the galaxy, the heroic Jedi Knights struggle to maintain order and restore peace. More and more systems are falling prey to the forces of the dark side as the Galactic Republic slips further and further under the sway of the Separatists and their never-ending droid army. Anakin Skywalker and his Padawan learner Ahsoka Tano find themselves on a mission with far-reaching consequences, one that brings them face-to-face with crime lord Jabba the Hutt. But Count Dooku and his sinister agents, including the nefarious Asajj Ventress, will stop at nothing to ensure that Anakin and Ahsoka fail at their quest. Meanwhile, on the front lines of the Clone Wars, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Master Yoda lead the massive clone army in a valiant effort to resist the forces of the dark side ... (Warner Bros.) Expand

    It's not exactly thrilling, and it doesn't cover much new ground. But young audiences will lap it up like ice cream.
  2. The best that can be said about the movie is that it's harmless and mostly charmless. The Clone Wars is to Star Wars what karaoke is to pop music.
  3. The largely uninspired Clone Wars feels landlocked. In the absence of any extensive innovation, the video game-ready results play more like a feature-length promo for the imminent TV series of the same name than a stand-alone event.
  4. Unlike its predecessors, this one doesn't even try to aspire to myth. It aspires only to merchandising.

    Don't expect the seventh Star Wars film here. Star Wars: The Clone Wars is more like a long Saturday morning cartoon.
  6. The animated characters in "Clone Wars" are about as lively as the actors in the live-action movies, so I guess Lucas has achieved his goal of eliminating humans from his movies altogether.
  7. George Lucas is turning into the enemy of fun.

    The problem is people are looking at this movie and expecting something like Episodes I-VI. It isn't. This was simply an hour and a half pilotThe problem is people are looking at this movie and expecting something like Episodes I-VI. It isn't. This was simply an hour and a half pilot for the only good show on Cartoon Network. And as a TV pilot, it was great. I'm sure that had this been released straight to TV rather than theaters, there would've been way less negativity. Expand

    An ok movie for the young, I don't like skywalker, george lucas should have left winey jedi out of the order, anikin could still have An ok movie for the young, I don't like skywalker, george lucas should have left winey jedi out of the order, anikin could still have turned to the dark side, but been more of a pleasure to watch as a jedi and the same for his supposed padawan that doesn't really fit the star wars universe. get someone else to make another real acting star wars trilogy.

    Absolutely Terrible! The graphics and visuals look even worse than a video games. And the idea that Anikan is the republics only hope is just Absolutely Terrible! The graphics and visuals look even worse than a video games. And the idea that Anikan is the republics only hope is just plain stupid. In the REAL trilogy nobody trusts Annikan for what he may become. This is just some collosal bomb that has no knowledge of anything of Star Wars at all. I thought The Clone Wars had already been told, through the end of the second film and throughout the third. I don`t care if George Lucas executive produced this film. It was just very predictable, stupid, and plain awful. Lucas`s worst BY FAR!!!!! Expand
