Hate to say it but Anakins jedi killing skills were poorly showed by Lucas
i thought once he'd fallen that'd be it!! y know marching into the temple alone!! casually sauntering along, slicing, dicing, choking and throwing younglings, padawans, knights and masters alike!!
he does seem a bit weak in episode 3!!
they should have completely cut grievous from the film and showed the above temple scene AND a full blown duel between him and Mace(not as long as long as the finale tho 5 mins or something) they also should have shown him doing something IMMENSLEY powerful oinly the chosen one could do!!! i dont know , something like taking on the masters without his Saber ignited,( we've only seen lightsaber v lightsaber or force power v forcepower!) kinda like a bruce lee stylee!! him standing in the middle of the room unarmed while they all surround him and attack (1 by 1 of course! lol)
I dunno does anyone agree?? or is it just my twisted fantasy??
GL could definitely shown Vaders power more!!!
If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain or bitter; for always there will be lesser and greater persons than yourself.
Totally agree. That's what I've been saying the whole time. The biggest thing that is missing is bridging the gap between how powerful Vader seemed to be to everyone in the OT, and Anakin in the PT leading up to it.
I wanted to come away from the movie knowing that Vader was the ONLY one who could have done the job because he was the strongest like he is supposed to be, and that palps definitely needed him to gain ultimate power, but I didn't. I came away thinking that Anakin was somehow weak, and palps didn't need him at all. And since Anakin is portrayed as weak in his supposed prime, doesn't that make Vader in the OT weak?
Dooku 's an idealist, man.
He ain't that easy tah controll as Ani.
Ani's frustrated and instable. Dooku knows what he wants.
It's an image worth pondering for a moment. Maybe, when you cut past the instrumental and songwriting virtuosity, the funny voices and characters, what is left is a man alone in his recording studio for days at a time.
I know this is a old posting just wanted to say hope you don't think the same thing now with the new canon material. Tcw and rebels definitely help. Also anakin might I've been cut up and left to die on mustufar (sp) but he was able to tap into to the dark side even further to keep him alive. By musturing the hatred of obii wan and the rest of the Jedi order to keep him alive. While most would have died. Even the scene with him killing the Jedi flegding was a good depiction on how ruthless and devotee he was to palp. and remember the time between tpt and tot. 20 years during tpt he was being trained by the Jedi. He just started is with training at the ejd of tpt. By the time tot came out he was ready to become a with master by trying to turn Luke.
