This 90-minute review of Attack of the Clones attacks Episode II
Posted by Patrick Sauriol on Sunday, April 4, 2010
Star Wars fans remember that 90-minute review of Episode I from last year. Disturbing, revealing, insightful and pretty damn funny, the mysterious individual behind Red Letter Media released their review of The Phantom Menace to fanboy acclaim. The interwebs went crazy, millions of downloads of the nine-part review took place and it became an instant geek culture phenomena.
After setting his sights on a review for Avatar next, now Red Letter Media's "Harry" has returned with another 90-minute review for the sequel to Phantom Menace, Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones.
You know what to expect: a review that eviscerates the flaws of the middle chapter of the Star Wars prequels like a cold Han Solo kneeling in front of a dead Tauntaun on Hoth. The brilliance of Red Letter Media's film reviews has been their way to mix humor and solid film commentary together. You can tell that whomever this Harry person is, he loves Star Wars just as much as the rest of us -- just not the sucky parts. And he's not afraid to tell you his reasons why.
All nine parts of his Attack of the Clones review went up yesterday on YouTube. Got some free time to kill?
(And stick all the way to the end of part nine of the review to see Harry's version of a Empire Strikes Back cliffhanger ending.)
