Star Wars the clone Wars: the animated movie
Star Wars the Clone Wars is a well made, family friendly, and humorous movie. The movie is made for all age groups, but targets specifically children under the age of thirteen and above the age of six or seven. The story focuses around a group of new characters and one little hutlet whose fate could decide the galaxy’s future. The timing of the movie, as you can tell, is during the early years of the Clone Wars. The movie is brought to you by the same team that made the 2 Star Wars the Clone Wars cartoon specials.
Before I begin to talk about this movie, I need to get this out of the way. I would recommend this movie to anybody that enjoys 3D animation. The animation is impressive, the voices for each character sound accurate (at least the characters that we know what they’re supposed to sound like do) with the exception of the clones, and to top it all off the storyline is simple but fun. Now for the details. First off, Star Wars the Clone Wars introduces a new character, Ahsoka Tano, a 10 to 11 year old Togruta who turns out to be Anakin Skywalker’s new padawan. The Clone Wars also introduces Captain Rex, Anakin’s clone captain, and Asajj Ventress, Count Dooku’s new apprentice. The Clone Wars revolutionizes what you thought about… everything! Although I would disagree with the accuracy of certain things in the movie, it’s not that big of a deal, even if you are a crazy die hard Star Wars fan like me.
To sum up the good parts about the movie, I would have to say that the animation, the sound, the storyline… it’s all what you should expect out of a Star Wars movie. The violence is not even close to being gory, because there’s no blood or body parts getting blown off; and even when the jedi cut up droids it’s only a split second that you can spot that metallic arm or whatever in the screen – and on top of that, it’s a stinkin’ robot! The comedy is good and clean, the characters are mostly interesting, and the planets are beautifully constructed.
The bad on the other hand are few and far between. In the beginning of the movie, one unnecessary cuss word pops up randomly, and for no apparent cause or reason, and is possibly the only thing that caused the rating to escalate to PG; but I promise noother bad words are used. Like I’ve mentioned before, certain things about the movie contradict the books and the general obvious knowledge of the actual Clone Wars, but even if you do notice these things, they’re little and insignificant, and therefore – if you even care – no big deal. The few other things that could be mistaken for gory violence would be when clones die on occasions. For example, one clone gets his face blown off in the beginning of the movie, but all you see is him get shot one moment and fly out of the screen the next. Even if you pause it, you don’t see the head come off, so as long as you’re okay with people dying in movies, then it should be no problem. The movie is barely violent. Besides these minute things, the movie is completely clean.
To be perfectly honest, Star Wars the Clone Wars the movie is a million times better, awesomer (which should be word), and cleaner than the series that was released in 2008 on Cartoon Network (I’ll note the series is continuing today), so if you’ve seen the series and not the movie – do you and your family a favor and watch this movie.
