THE EMPIRE HITS A TRIPLE: Hey, at least it doesn’t strike out. Bill Hunt of The Digital Bits gets a sneak preview of Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones:
Okay… right now you’re probably wondering one thing: is Episode II a better Star Wars film than Episode I? And the answer is a DEFINITE yes. Attack of the Clones is far more enjoyable than The Phantom Menace. It’s a better film overall. And it’s a darned good Star Wars film. BUT… it isn’t a really great Star Wars film, and I don’t think it’s quite as good as a lot of early reviewers would have you believe. I’m not trying to throw cold water on your enthusiasm… I’m just trying to encourage you to temper it a little bit.
