Star Wars: The Clone Wars is the untold story of what happened in between the events in Episode II: Attack of the Clones and Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. It's the first film to come out of Lucasfilm Animation. It features the voices of Christopher Lee as Count Dooku and Samuel L Jackson as Mace Windu. Of course none of this information makes this movie anything more than a leaden footnote in the Star Wars series. Clone Wars isn't so much a movie as a video game. A series of battles are hitched together by a few feeble plot twists, exposition and mechanical dialogue like: Commander Cody prepare the gunship for ground assault. But what really grated on my nerves was the cute banter between Anakin Skywalker and his pupil, named Ashoka. The two of them must rescue Jabba the Hutts infant who has been kidnapped. The kidnapping is part of a larger plot to pit Jabba against the Republic so that Separatists can gain access to the Galactic routes. It's less complicated and far more boring than it sounds. The only interesting element here is Jabba's offspring who looks like a larva with big eyes. Clone Wars might appeal to fanboys who need another Star Wars fix. The rest of us should just steer clear.
