Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones isn’t just the weakest film in the Prequel Trilogy, it’s the worst film in the entire saga. Here are some of the reasons why.
Prior to the release of The Rise of Skywalker, I went back and watched every Star Wars film. After viewing the movies the opinions I’ve held about them most of my life stayed consistent.
The Phantom Menace is more boring than bad, Revenge of the Sith is mostly very good, Return of the Jedi still is my favorite, and The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi both are very entertaining films that don’t deserve the bashing they get.
One thing that changed though, was my feelings about Attack of the Clones. I always considered it one of the weakest Star Wars films but after my recent screening, it’s clear and evident that it’s the worst film in Saga and a pretty bad movie overall.
Now Attack of the Clones does have some good moments. The Jango Fett/Obi-Wan battle still holds up, the seismic charges are some of the best sound effects in all of Star Wars, Dexter Jettster is fun, and the final lightsaber battle with Dooku, Yoda, Anakin, and Obi-Wan is good. But overall, this is just not a good movie.
Here are four reasons why Attack of the Clones is the worst film in the Star Wars saga.
