Great second installment of Tartakovsky's 'Clone Wars',
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
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.
