Critic Reviews for Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Season 1

All Critics (16)

The new series aspires to the level of a virtual-reality game. That's both the source of its great visual charm and the key to its emptiness, which is too dull to get worked up about.

The animated adventures are supposed to expand on the time that occurred between movies, giving us a look at the much anticipated, but never seen, Clone Wars. Instead, they kind of make me wish that era was still shrouded in secrecy.

While there's nothing particularly surprising about this show, it's fun overall, and the animation is beautiful.

The Clone Wars will certainly polarise Star Wars fans, but if you can lose the baggage it offers fairly solid entertainment.

It has a ton of great action and adventure, is increasingly great to look at, and has had some surprisingly effective character moments. It's flawed to be sure, but it has proven it can really deliver when it's firing on all cylinders.

A superb animated's familiar and new at the same time.

Audience Reviews for Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Season 1


Hits the ground running after the terrible setup movie


Super Reviewer


While the first season is somewhat uneven, Star Wars: The Clone Wars benefits from a stronger focus then it's theatrical film and some stellar stand alone episodes to give both newcomers and older fans a great time.
