Cool Videos: Honest Trailer for Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones

05.07.2014

STAR WARS: EPISODE I - THE PHANTOM MENACE disappointed most STAR WARS fans when it was released, however STAR WARS: EPISODE II - ATTACK OF THE CLONES really isn't any better than the first film. With the main cast for J.J. Abrams' STAR WARS: EPISODE VII announced last week, Screen Junkies decided it was time to do an Honest Trailer for the second movie in the series.

At this point we all know the many problems with ATTACK OF THE CLONES, but it certainly doesn't make this Honest Trailer for George Lucas' film any less funny. Hayden Christensen and his Anakin are the butt of a bunch of the jokes in the Honest Trailer, and Screen Junkies also has a few things to say about all the visual effects and the many, many wipes in STAR WARS: EPISODE II - ATTACK OF THE CLONES.

If you are one of those people who don't believe J.J. Abrams will do a good job with STAR WARS: EPISODE VII, let me ask you this: do you really think it'll end up being worse than this?

"The prequel/sequel that proves THE PHANTOM MENACE wasn't an accident."

I actually like this movie (I know blasphemy around these parts)...
After Phantom Menace my expectations were so low that I ended up enjoying this...
I LOVE THESE HONEST TRAILERS THOUGH!!! LMAO!!!

Starring...

The "Starring" section was quality for this one. Many times they are reaching for funny names, but they were right on for this one. Still, my favorite is: "The Dark Knight starring Kristen Stuart's mouth". Brilliant!

These things crack me up. Although I will admit, they tend to pick on films that are way too easy to pick on. I'd like to see them tackle Inglourious Basterds, Django....some of the big Oscar films like There Will Be Blood or No Country. It'd be interesting to see how they take great films down a notch with their sarcasm. Love these though.

IMAX Cut

Remember seeing this in an IMAX cut. About 20 minutes were gone, most of that cringe inducing romance section, and it was a better movie.

These are funny

I look forward to these every week or so because a lot of the points are valid [link] in the case of Attack of the Clones (easily the worst of the prequels). I look forward to what they're going to say about Godzilla.

Always felt these were way too smug. They are funny on occasion but I just can't like these as much as something like How It Should Have Ended, which still takes jabs at the material but presents it in a more entertaining and good-natured form.

Come on...

Talk about being nit-picky. Most of the issues he mentioned could be for any STAR WARS movie. So is he saying as a whole, that STAR WARS is dumb. These HONEST TRAILERS don't seem to be so honest anymore.

Yeah. Almost every single issue they pointed out in this Honest Trailer can also be seen in the whole Original Trilogy. This trailer was a disappointment.

So Hayden Christensen's bad acting was in the other 5 as well? Who knew?

Also, the screen wipes were definitely more pronounced in this film, and really annoying (as was the fact that they waited forever to even bother introducing the really old, barely threatening bad guy.
