Can't wait to read all the "X company posted my disc 3 hours ago and it's not here yet" threads once the first person recieves their disc and jealousy kicks in for everyone else. Should be worth a giggle

Who cares if the cgi is weak in some points, most of the time its damn impressive. Everything else that makes a film, are the big problem areas.
this is a Star Wars movie. Some people like to compare it to other movies to bash it, when you should just compare it to other Star Wars movies. It's not better than Empire, and it's doubtful that even Episode III will topple that one, but it is better than The Phantom Menace and in my opinion it's even better than Jedi. Both Jedi and Phantom are flawed, which put them on about even ground in my book.
For hardcore Star Wars fans, there is just so much to like in the movie. You'd truly have to be a cynical whiny little punk to hate this movie as a Star Wars film. We get to see the Lars homestead and learn that Owen and Beru really were related to Luke, Boba Fett's origin is revealed, Palpatine's rise to power is completed as Jar Jar's "purpose" in the saga is finally revealed, and probably most important to action-craving fans, we see the beginning of the famous Clone Wars.

Like b***ocks it's cynical and whiny to hate it as a Star Wars film. I'm sorry, but SW2 is a cynical cash in by Lucas. It's clearly driven to drive sales of the computer games, the plot is ****, the characterisation weak.Originally posted by kevb
There's a nice quote here taken from a review and I make the guy dead right.
