The Clone Wars

Yesterday the boys and I went with Grandpa B and Coby to see the new Clone Wars animated film (2008,PG).  It was enjoyable enough as another piece of the Star Wars franchise but it would have been pretty weak standing on its own.  You're not setting up yourself too well when the foundation of the whole story is something as silly as Jabba calling on the Jedi to recover his kidnapped child.  The film continues the pre-occupation of the Clone Wars TV cartoon with warfare between the clones and separatist droids it city settings.  The seemingly endless rain of laser battles was getting a bit old for me.  I thought the interplay between Anakin and his young padawan Ahsoka was tolerable at least.  Jabba's uncle Ziro was not. I give it 3 out of 5.
