Star Wars: The Clone Wars (2008) Review


Bad
It would be nice to think that the infusion of new blood into the Star Wars franchise, in the form of director Dave Filoni and screenwriters Henry Gilroy, Steven Melching, and Scott Murphy, would reinvigorate the series and correct the shortcomings of some of the previous installments. It would be nice to think that the introduction of animation to the mix might create new opportunities for the storytelling aesthetic. It would be nice to think a lot of things, but this latest installment suffers from all of the less appealing qualities of its predecessors and benefits from few of their strengths.
