The plot: The peace-loving planet of Naboo is under threat from a greedy Trade Federation. The planet's ruler, Queen Amidala, naively believes that words and diplomacy can solve this tricky situation.

what the others say

Total Film

"The added visual depth does little to disguise quite how flat everything in between is."

Little White Lies

"Still unsure of the basic mechanics of the plot, drags in places and that Binks chap wasn't just a bad dream, but when it soars, it soars."

Time Out

"Charmless, sexless, passionless and robot-humoured, it's preposterously uninvolving."
