Top 10 Moments: Star Wars Episode II Attack Of The Clones
Okay… Let’s talk about Episode 2… I would wager if you were to ask 10 hard core Star Wars fans to rank their favorites, Attack of the Clones would be at the bottom of nearly all of them. It’s certainly my least favorite of the saga thus far.
Having said that, it’s still Star Wars and there are plenty of fun moments to enjoy. Having said THAT, it was pretty difficult coming up with 10 solid choices.
10. Yoda Fighting Is Funny
Right. So… I like the idea of Yoda fighting and to be honest, they pulled it off. It’s a little goofy but extremely fun. The real problem with this scene is Count Dooku. He sucks. Imagine if they didn’t kill off Darth Maul and he fought Yoda!?
Moment 10B = Lightning Yoda.
So Jango Fett loses his head. Fine. He was over matched by a superior warrior. No problem. Trampled on by a pig beast? Understandable. I bet what really stings in the afterlife is the fact he was beheaded by a purple lightsaber.
8. Seismic Charges
In my opinion, this is one of the coolest weapons in the entire series. I suppose it doesn’t say much for the film when a weapon is a top 10 moment… It is really cool though. Great sound design!
7. Anakin vs Dooku
There is a moment during this fight after Anakin loses his hand when Dooku ‘force pushes’ him away. If it wasn’t for that fact I found that moment hilarious, this fight would have been higher on my list.
… Say it with me… (Darth Vader voice everyone) “Noooooooooooo!”
6. The Petranaki Arena
Three very cool and very different monsters face off against two jedi plus a… normal… human… Okay, it’s a bit far fetched and the annoying high pitch squealing spike foot–
After some research, I found out the annoying creature is actually called an Acklay. Him and his two buddies (The Nexu and Reek) should have dominated no?
Side note: If a Nexu clawed my back like Padme’s I would have squealed like a… Well, like an Acklay.
5. Death Star Construction Crew
Plans for the first Death Star! See? It’s all connected.
4. Tusken Rage
Say what you will about the acting etc… This is a moment I wish continued throughout the series. Darth Vader is one of the best villains of all time. FINALLY! We get a brief glimpse of the man Anakin will become.
3. The Actual Clone War
If only there was more of this and less ‘Anakin loves Padme’ scenes…
2. Hold The Line Jedi!
Dozens of Jedi storming the battle field wielding lightsabers! Again. Less ‘Padakin’ love and more battles!
1. Begun The Clone War Has
The sequence is a bit too… CG… But it’s an epic moment nonetheless. Star Destroyers! Storm Troopers V1!
Cue the Imperial March! Nice.
