Ambitious Jedi knight Anakin (Christensen) goes further on his journey to the dark side while Obi-Wan (McGregor) tries to reign him in. He and Amidala (Portman), who's now a senator, have a forbidden romance, and the Republic continues to be plaqued by enemies from within and without. The romance angle, so touted in the pre-release hype, seems forced due to a lack of chemistry (and some ridiculous dialogue) between the two leads, but everything else is spectacular. The exposition is handled much better that in Episode 1, (and really whets the appetite for Episode 3) and the action set pieces are (as expected) well done, and superbly choreographed. Christensen shows brief flashes of the personality changes to come in Anakin, but his performance is uneven. Jackson finally gets to show what he's got as the baddest Jedi this side of Yoda.

Awesome movie with good sound effects and special effects. The movie opens up with Anakin as a teenager who is becoming a great Jedi but still in training with Obi-Wan. Anakin and Obi are sent on a mission to protect Amidala and the romance begins secretly between the two. In the meantime, Anakin has great love for his mother and she has some bad things happen which explains why Anakin, the one believed to be the future great Jedi, is going to turn to the dark side. Many wars are starting because of the Clone Army and during one of the battles, Anakin loses his arm. This movie is so good that you can't wait for the next sequel to see what happens next.
