Star Wars: The Clone Wars Season 2, Episode 5: "Landing at Point Rain" - Review

While the last episode of The Clone Wars was very light on action, this episode was the polar opposite. It was almost nothing but action, and was very successful in that regard.

Wow, how about some of the content here, huh? This was a truly gritty and intense installment that did a very good job of conveying what ended up being one hell of a fight for the Jedi and Clones.

This show has not been shy about borrowing real life and movie vernacular for the soldiers portrayed here, but it was interesting to see Anakin and Ahsoka - rather than any of the Clone Troopers - being the ones that were constantly trying to outdo each other with how many "kills" they had in battle. Is it a Jedi-like thing to do? No, but Anakin and Ahsoka are not the most stoic of Jedi - and they are talking about Battle Droids for the most part, after all.

There wasn't much story here. Once Anakin, Obi-Wan and Ki-Adi-Mundi (AKA Conehead Jedi from all three prequels) began their assault on Geonosis -- the very same planet where the Clone Wars began -- with their respective squadrons, it was all about the fighting - but what fighting it was.

There was no denying this was a hard fought battle. We saw some true carnage here, as these Geonosians and Battle Droids were particularly difficult foes, shooting down Clone transport ships and individual clones left and right. The fact that both Obi-Wan and Ki-Adi were injured early on in the episode underscored that this was not a campaign to be taken lightly.
