20 Things You Didn't Know About Star Wars: Attack Of The Clones

16. The Outlander Club Is One Of The Film's Few Full Sets

By far one of the biggest criticisms of the prequels is their excessive use of visual effects, and this is especially true of Attack of the Clones, which more so than The Phantom Menace makes egregious use of obvious, garish blue screen technology.

It's so obviously apparent that actors are typically shooting their scenes in front of either incomplete sets with heavy blue screen elements, or 100% blue screen environments with nothing practical for them to relate to.

And so, Hayden Christensen said that he thoroughly enjoyed filming the sequence at the Outlander Club, because this was one of the film's few sets that was entirely tangible with no digital extensions or blue screen elements.

Considering it's one of the few scenes in the movie that feels lived-in and truly "real," it's little surprise that any actor would find the experience hugely preferential to using their imagination within a sterile blue room.
