Since I'm catching up on the Clone Wars (2008) animated show for the first time, I decided to rewatch all the movies, starting with the prequels. Only the original 6 tho, since I don't like the new Disney movies, and don't count them as canon.
It's a nice introduction for the new characters. It's doesn't deserve the hate it got, which I only recently found out. Since I'm a late 90's kid, I remember watching the prequels as a kid, and I have fond memories. This may not be the best Star Wars movie, but it's enjoyable. It's far from bad. It's necessary for the story to build up, kind of a filler if you wish.
