Jan (Age 11) - ★★★★

"This Movie is just as good as The Phantom Menace. The highlights for me were the thrilling Battle of Geonosis, Yoda VS Count Dooku, Obi-Wan VS Jango Fett, and the Geonosis Arena when C-3P0 was on a Battle Droid's Body. It was hilarious watching C-3P0 on a Droid's body and a Droid's head on C-3P0's body. When C-3P0 is knocked to the floor with the force, R2-D2 shows up and puts C-3P0's head back on his proper body. The only thing I did not enjoy as much is the romantic scenes between aniken and padme."
