Star Wars: Clone Wars Vol 2... The Force Is Still Strong

"one of my favourite images / shots of all time..."

Star Wars: Clone Wars Vols 1 & 2 (PG)

Mini review by Matt Adcock

Star Wars: Clone Wars, the animated micro-series which serves as an action-packed lead-in to Episode III originally aired on Cartoon Network, has won the Emmy award for Outstanding Animated Program for each Vol and is generally responsible for re-igniting my two boys' passion for all things force related...

I am an unashamed Star Wars fan, and I love animation so this really was an easy win for me but the Clone Wars DVDs are great - packed with cool extras (playable Xbox levels of games, trailers and short films like the Lego piece of genius that is 'Revenge of the Brick').

Plot synopsis from IMDB: "Immediately after the events of Star Wars-Episode II: Attack of the Clones, the Clone Wars continue. The Separatists launch masses of Battle Droids while the Republic has an entire arsonal of Clone Troopers to blow them away. Obi-Wan Kenobi and his apprentice Anakin Skywalker are also participating in the fights against Count Dooku and his defiant separaists. Jedi Masters Yoda and Mace Windu, take part in the battle as well. While down on Coruscant, Padme Amidala, Chancellor Palpatine, C-3PO and R2-D2 hope nothing but good for our heroes. Will the Republic emerge triumphant? Will Dooku and his separatists be brought to their knees? And will Anakin truly bring balance to the Force, or will he bring absolutely tyranny?"

Poster Quote: “tempting... the way of the force is, watch it again, must you...”

Darkmatt Rating: öööö (The force is strong in this one)

"How far over the top should be go with the clone's guns? All the way!!"
