|Give in, strap in and fly with the latest chapter of the "Star Wars" galactic saga. Dashing young Jedi knight Anakin Skywalker (Hayden Christiensen), who will grow to become arch-villain Darth Vader, romances Padmé Amidala (Natalie Portman) and begins to show signs of a real bad temper. Don't worry about the bogus dialogue or cardboard performances by the actors (only Ewan McGregor, as Jedi master Obi-Wan Kenobi, and a lively digital Yoda, voiced by Frank Oz, rise above declamation). Creator George Lucas began the series with "Episode IV," his hi-tech homage to Saturday-matinee serials of yore, complete with corny dialogue and cliffhangers. "Attack..." is more of the same; the thespians are pawns subservient to the epic sweep of the story. But after a tepid "Episode I," this is rapture. Groove on the jet-car chase through the crowded skies of the Jedi Council's home planet! Marvel at glorious digital landscapes, skylines, space battles and aliens! And steel yourself for non-stop action in the last hour!|
