5.0 out of 5 stars star wars as it should have been
If you remember episode 4 and 5 with as fond memories as me, then i am sure that you will enjoy this. For action characterisation and story this leaves the first '3' film episodes standing. By the creator of Samurai Jack this has style and brings back the true excitment of Star Wars. Both volumes are excellent and are enjoyed by both my children as well.

3.0 out of 5 stars Star Wars: Clone Wars - Volume Two
Star Wars is the greatest movie franchise around. This film was not too bad. I think that 'Star Wars: Clone Wars - Volume One' was better.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best Star Wars animation yet!, 6 Sep 2005
This review is from: Star Wars: Clone Wars - Volume Two [DVD] (DVD)
With six, twelve minute episodes, rather than the five minute episodes of the first animated clone wars series, volume 2 has more depth and development; this makes for a more enjoyable watch. it has all the excitement volume 1 but gains from more story, which also ties in perfectly to episode three (in fact the end of the series is the start of the movie).
This is the best slice of animated star wars yet. I'm now looking forward to the new SW animated series being prepared for 2007.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great second installment of Tartakovsky's 'Clone Wars', 1 April 2008

This review is from: Star Wars: Clone Wars - Volume Two [DVD] (DVD)
The 'Clone Wars' cartoons are not only great fun but tell the story of the legendary war from the Star Wars history with pleasing attention to detail. I don't think this second batch entirely matches the first in terms of adrenaline and pace but it's nonetheless very watchable and General Grevious steals the show. His character is far better depicted than in 'Revenge of the Sith' and you understand why he is such a threat to the Jedi.

Anakin's liberation of those weird mutant creature things hampers the story quite badly and I thought it was by and large a dull distraction from the Clone War itself. However, the lead up to the Chancellor's kidnapping and the beginning of 'Revenge of the Sith' is perfectly done and with buckets of action to boot. Tartakovsky's dedication to the project is evident and he delivers a fabulous overview of the conflict. It will be interesting to see how the forthcoming (and official it should be said) CGI TV series/ movie of 'The Clone Wars' will compare and if indeed it borrows from this version.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Clone Wars rage on!, 14 Oct 2006
By 
This review is from: Star Wars: Clone Wars - Volume Two [DVD] (DVD)
A second action packed DVD of the emmy-winning Star Wars: The Clone Wars is just what any Star Wars fan really wants.

In a new format compared to the first 20 volumes of the animated series, these chapters are now 15 minutes long, allowing for more character development and even more lightsaber-swinging Jedi action!

Beginning where chapter 20 left off, Ki-Adi Mundi, Shaak Ti and Aayla Secura are rescued from the metal clutches of General Grievous, with a little help from the ever helpful ARC trooper Fordo and the squad he led with Obi-Wan on Muunilist (see the first volume of Clone Wars).

Anakin and Obi-Wan fighting in the Outer rim seiges after their victory on Muunilist, the first chapter really sets up the brotherly relationship between the two characters that will be destroyed come the events of Episode III. Anakin and Obi-Wan then travel to the planet Nelvaan, where Anakin finds that he is the prophecised warrior of the indigenous Nelvaani and goes through trials which will foreshadow his downfall to the Dark side.

Meanwhile, on Coruscant, the Core planet of the Star Wars universe, the cunning capture of Chancellor Palpatine by General Grievous mentioned in the crawl at the start of Episode III takes place, with Mace Windu and Yoda marshalling the defense of the planet from the onslaught of Battle droids. Meanwhile, Jedi Master Sasee Tiin takes on the Sepratist fleet high above the planet.

Jedi Master Shaak Ti, with the help of 2 new jedi, the furry Foul Moudama and the Ithorian Roron Corrob, is charged with protecting the Chancellor, and must flee to shelter with the mechanical menace Grievous hot on their heels. After a lengthy battle on the Coruscant tram, Grievous catches up with the Jedi, slaying Foul and Roron, and leaving Shaak Ti bound in mechanical wiring, while he steals Palpatine away, leaving Mace Windu to find Shaak Ti.

After saving the Nelvaani from the droid threat, Anakin and Obi-Wan return to their Fleet to find a message from Coruscant: The Sepratists have invaded and Kidnapped the Chancellor! Anakin and Obi-Wan race to the planet, and the cartoon ends with the beginning of the fantastic space battle that starts Episode III.

The top notch animation never stops these cartoons from feeling like true Star Wars, and this DVD should take pride of place on any fans shelf.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than Part 1 in character development, 8 April 2008
By

This review is from: Star Wars: Clone Wars - Volume Two [DVD] (DVD)
This bridges the gap nicely between Part 1 of the Clone Wars and Star Wars Episode III - Revenge of the Sith. The episodes are six minutes and therefore they are able to explore in much more detail the darker side of Anakin and his love-hate relationship with Obi-Wan. The focus is on their adventures in the Outer-Rim Territories as mentioned in Star Wars Ep III. Anakin becomes a Jedi Knight, and Coruscant is attacked by the Confederacy of Independent Systems. During this diversion, General Grevious steals in and captures Chancellor Palpatine. Therefore it dove-tails right into Ep III.

Perhaps the most talked about part of this release is the foreshadowing of how Anakin will be tempted to evil, as symbolised by his robotic hand growing larger than larger in a psychadelic dream sequence, as part of his personal test and trial. This mirrors the part in Ep VI where Luke Skywalker examines his own hand, and realises that he could become his father's replacement, a new tool for the Emperor.

Awesome. Even better than Volume 1. Add this to your Star Wars collection without delay, and then look forward to next year's 3D CGI Clone Wars follow-up.

5.0 out of 5 stars At last the Clone Wars Draw to a close, 22 Nov 2005
This review is from: Star Wars: Clone Wars - Volume Two [DVD] (DVD)
The 2nd volume of the Clone Wars sees a change to the format of the first. Now each episode is around 15mins long and have a little more diologue, never fear though all the fast paced action is still there.
The story again follows our favourite Jedi Knights as they fight the battles which made up the clone wars, climaxing in with Obi-Wan and Anakin recieving news of Palpatine's kidnap. Again the Animation is first rate and the story is enjoyable filling in the gap between Episodes II and III.
If possible even better than the first, a must have.

5.0 out of 5 stars original and still the best, 7 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Star Wars: Clone Wars - Volume Two [DVD] (DVD)
like this more than the new version, with all its suped up graphics and money spent on it. Bit like the new three star wars films what he gained in effects he lost in story telling and good stylised imagery. I also liked the graphic novels of the old republic because of this, the days of Ulic and Exar, the likes of Thon getting it on.... the fight between Anakin and Asajj on Yavin has to be one of the best ever, there are a couple of episodes that aren't as good but not that many, I also like Obi wan Vs Durge with lances, the first known arrival of the leader of the droids who is hunting Jedi in the downed space ship, what was his name again....? Anyway he's far less a coward here than he is later on, which I liked.
