Here is yet another Star Wars conversation, where Dave, Maff & Mike bring you their thoughts on Attack Of The Clones! Three episodes serve as a soft lead into the Clone Wars animated series; this, the Phantom Menace chat and the upcoming Clone Wars movie review! The debate continues on the quality of the prequels as we draw nearer to the animated series that changed Star Wars forever!

In more detail, the trio discuss their first impressions of Attack Of The Clones and if their views have changed. They then discuss Anakin & Padmé’s somewhat questionable romance, Mike explains the mystery surrounding Sifo Dias & the clone army, the Geonosis battle, the finale lightsaber duel, what could be improved and how the film compares to The Phantom Menace. Plus Maff has put together a quiz for Mike & Dave to do – play along and tell us how you did!
