Being an internet guy, I’ve been seeing a lot of hate for Episode II for some reason since last night. From what I can gather, these are the primary complaints:
1. There was too much setup for the battle of the living vs the non-living drone army
2. Nobody liked the sexual scenes with the “underaged”, child-like protagonist.
My answers to these complaints are as follows: You need the setup in order to make the payoff that is the clone wars work and Anakin is a legal 19 years old during the events of Attack of the Clones! I know Hayden Christensen was a young looking man at the time, but I don’t think anyone should have had any issues with him having relations with a 24 year old. You guys need to get over yourselves and appreciate this movie for what it was, a wonderful romantic tale and a prelude to the great war.
