I loved it... start to finish, it was great.
I'd say it was the best 5 minutes of my life, but I'd be lying...
(Insert perverted jokes here by the way)
I thought all the voices were well done, even Palpatines which had the rather complex "regal" quality to it that's not easy to find someone able to mimic that.
If anything, I thought Palpatine's animated character looked emaciated and wafer thin which was odd since the actual human character is old, but doesn't look THAT bad. I mean, did you see his arms?
Anyway, small tiff in an otherwise great 5 minute cartoon. I honestly was hoping for more, and anticipating the next 5 minute cartoon... Of course, that sounds lame, but I liked this that much.
-Clones with black ponchos in a firefight during a thunderstom? Woohoo!
-Republic Fighters Taking off and a glimpse at a non-clone Republic military personnel? Oh yeah!
-Yoda riding headlong into battle and whippin' butt? Show me more!
-All the other Jedi shown slicing battledroids up like they were deli meat? YES!
-Anakin messin' with 3PO by force throwing his cloak on him?... That was actually more amusing than most the humor seen in both prequals so far. Kinda made him out to be a bullie/snot.
-Palpatine being a uberjerk in his office while Anakin snidely watched on? Great!
-The Jedi Fighters giving a little ground support to the Republic forces by droping explosives? I now want MORE Jedi Fighters cuz of that (The other squad colors helped).
Overall I think that was a neat little cartoon... I'd take a full-length one honestly.
I wonder what the ratings were for that tiny 5 minute window they had there? I loved that toon though. Very fun... And I agree with anyone who thinks that THAT felt more like Star Wars than the last couple movies have.
The Anakin/Padme moment was even great... I mean, it actually LOOKED more emotional than the two living actors have done. That's great, and yet so sad at the same time.
I just wish I could've watched more... And that my damn tape worked and I'd be able to watch it a little more closely over and over.
