    What was the point of this detail again? I thought it would have been cooler if she used this power to change into a different person at the club to attack Obi Wan. Feels like wasted potential for a cool bounty hunter.

      The whole bounty hunter mystery segment of the movie is what really ruins Attack Of The Clones's rewatchability

      You already know what's going to happen so the mystery is gone, and then how it goes down doesn't hit right enough to be sufficient as a spectacle

    Obi-Wan's strict as frick with him. No shit Anakin's got a chip on his shoulder. Dude's Force Jesus and he knows it. Yet he's constantly being held back from achieving his full potential. Plus, his mom died. He had visions of her death for weeks, but Obi-Wan told him to not worry about them. That's why he was b***hing about Obi-Wan. Dude not only had to watch his mom die in his arms, but he felt her die through the Force.

      You can make a flawed character and have them not be completely evil. Anakin's problem is he isn't heroic or likable so when he does do morally questionable stuff it just comes off as evil and self serving. You have to get the audience to agree/like the character for them to understand why they do the things they do. Anakin doesn't do any of that, he just whines about his friends behind their backs and throws toddler tantrums when things don't go his way.

            Define "raise".

            A lot of the advice he gets is shit. WHat are you talking about?
            >was it when he went on a megalomaniacal rant about how he hates children?
            Now you're just making shit up.
            >was it when he wanted to risk the lives of everyone on the gunship because he was simping for padme?
            That's the love of his life, dude. Most guys would do the same shit.
            >was it when he killed hundred of children over a nightmare?
            He had visions of his mom dying and they came true. Of course he'd believe the visions about Padme were legit.
            >was it when he sided with space satan?
            To save the life of his wife and child.
            >was it when he killed an order devoted to peace and justice?
            The Jedi lost the right to to that claim after the war.
            >was it when he tried to kill his best friend?
            Because he was trying to kill him.

              He was his master, he literally taught him how to use the force?
              >A lot of the advice he gets is shit. WHat are you talking about?
              He is told that allowing hate to flow through him will cause suffering. This is said in a universe where doing good and evil effect you mentally and physically.
              >Now you're just making shit up.

              The sand people were evil but he clearly is fine with killing children and the defenseless if it benefits him in some way
              >That's the love of his life, dude. Most guys would do the same shit.
              He's not supposed to fall in love. the Jedi kept warning him and he didn't listen. His emotions would cloud his judgement and it led to his downfall.
              >He had visions of his mom dying and they came true. Of course he'd believe the visions about Padme were legit.
              His plan to save his wife relied on doing the dirty work of a man who orchestrated a war and had tried to kill his wife twice
              >To save the life of his wife and child.
              See point above, he was desperate but trusting a known liar who was more than willing to use people and then throw them away the second their usefulness had worn out (Anakin literally saw this first hand with dooku) is completely nonsensical.
              >The Jedi lost the right to to that claim after the war.
              Why? The jedi were attempting to stop a traitor who orchestrated a civil war which killed billion and was designed to make him emperor of the galaxy. The separatists are a bunch of hypocrites who wanted to leave because of "muh corporations oppressing us" while also having said corporations fund their army.
              >Because he was trying to kill him.
              His friend gave him several chances to stand down and he immeidatly went in to attack.

      It's really more like this. See how The Clone Wars's plebeian-friendly of Anakin is what many cite as the best version of him.

          That's an oversimplification. It's more the kind of "humanity" that doesn't lend itself well to hero worship. There are plenty of real life guys who are like TCW Anakin. They are tremendously easier to understand and even relate to than the kind of guy that Anakin represents (who is also rarer irl).

          They hate Anakin's particular psychology and behavioral patterns and can neither empathize nor sympathize with him on the basis of his upbringing. It's moreso their own lack of empathy and understanding that make them dislike Anakin.

    Anakin represents the type of young man who suffers from anomie despite having supreme potential for greatness, and who was improperly socialized.

    He's not supposed to be a traditional hero, he's supposed to be someone whose greatness depends upon his capacity for violence and his struggles to maintain his morals against innumerable toils and conflicts.

    This kind of person is often shunned by society in one way or another, hence why you find him "unlikeable". It's true to life.

      the older actors, like ian mcdiarmid and christopher lee understood the style and were great
