Half-decent this movie might be

I have not yet seen the new Star Wars movie, but I'm not one of those who refuses to read anything about it beforehand. I had fun watching The Phantom Menace three years ago, but it was disappointing in retrospect, since it left little impression on me afterwards. The original Star Wars was the first movie I ever saw in a theatre, so my 1999 experience was quite a letdown -- but then again, so was Return of the Jedi.

Yet I remain optimistic, and even before seeing Attack of the Clones, I suspect Rene Rodriguez of the San Jose Mercury News has probably hit the nail on the head: "Some early reviews of Clones have dismissed the film as a hollow showcase for special effects, which is like saying the only good thing about an opera was the singing."
