Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones

"A Jedi Shall Not Know Anger. Nor Hatred. Nor Love."

The second film in the prequel trilogy for the legendary Star Wars franchise is a dramatic special effects extravaganza, full of light-saber action, epic battles, and high-concept space opera which generations of fans have come to adore. Ten years after the Trade Federation's failure to take control of Alderaan, Senator Amidala, the former child-leader of Naboo has become for reasons beyond her knowledge a high-profile target for bounty hunters. Stepping in to protect her from further attacks after her decoy his tragically killed are her former guardians and friends: the Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi, and his padawan apprentice, Anakin Skywalker.

Under orders not only to protect Amidala but to discern the nature of her attackers, the two quickly become embroiled in a deep conspiracy that extends far deeper into their own Jedi Order than they expected. Further complicating matters, Anakin, rumored to be chosen by the force to bring balance to the universe, is lured from his monkish order and loyalty to his master by his own lust for Amidala and incorrigible ambition to become a fully fledged Jedi Knight. In the absence of his master, Anakin allows his ego to be further soothed and enhanced by the scheming Senator Palpatine.

Elsewhere in the Galaxy, former Jedi Knight Count Dooku, following direction from the same mysterious Sith Lord who trained the deadly Darth Maul and orchestrated the Trade Federation blockade of Naboo a decade ago, is organizing a coup of star systems to defect from the Galactic Senate, threatening to destroy the peaceful republic and surge the galaxy into a brutal civil war.

Mysteriously, just as the Galactic Senate is deeply in need of a grand army to preserve the union, one appears. In his search for Jango Fett, the bounty hunter responsible for the latest attack on Amidala's life, Obi-Wan stumbles across Genosia, a planet constructing a grand army of clones of Jango for a secret order given by a long dead Jedi Knight.

With the stage set for total war, it is up to the dysfunctional pair of Jedi Knights not only to rescue Amidala, but to prevent the galaxy from plunging into a chaotic confrontation.
