Who is the best character in Episode II?

05-22-2002, 05:56 PM
With most people the obvious choice would be Anakin, but personally I feel that Obi-Wan played the best part. I think he just really grew as a character, and his attempts and failings at giving advice to his Padawan was at times hilarious.

It shows the next stages of this master jedi's life, and how he slowly loses control of Anakin. I can't wait for them both to come face to face in Episode III. Obi-Wan will show him he really is the master!

#1 :jango:
#2 :fett: (Original Trilogy)

Alright, the left side of my brain agrees that Jango Fett is wicked. Sorry I was speaking a load of crap back there.

Acting wise, Ewan hands down...

I think the Death Sticks drug dealer was probably the best character, I really did belive that he was off home to rethink his life :)

but really my vote is for jango.

I wanted to see more of jango, and I really didn't expect him to die in this movie, if boba hasn't grown up and become an utter bad ass with serious movie time in the next film I may not even bother going to watch it, sure yoda's an ass kicker but so what, there are not many bad guys at all and they keep getting killed, maul died, now jango, lucas had three films to play with, I think he could have allowed them to survive more than just one movie each.

I had a frenzy on me to watch the original trillogy when they where re-released and I loved seeing them on the big screen :) but Phantom killed that lust, ATOC was better but it hasn't helped repair the damage as I had hoped it would, i'm now indiferent, if the next movie is made or not I wouldn't miss it, special effects dont make a film, they never have.

It's Yoda, you buttheads! Jango was in the movie for what, fifteen minutes total? He didn't even do much of anything at all. Some bounty hunter he is. Gets knocked off by Mace Windu in a few seconds flat.

Mace Windu's thoughts: "YO MUTHA****A, I told you to SIT DOWN!!!!"

Mace Windu's actual words: "This party's over."

Obi-Wan is the really best!! he's cool, and has a cool sense of humor!!!!:D *I hate it, when he do this*

05-24-2002, 12:35 PM
Yoda. Hands down...

When he pulled out his lightsaber, the whole theater was cheering!!

05-24-2002, 03:07 PM
My vote goes to Obi-Wan.

Mace Windu was cool, but that's because Jackson IS cool, he's Mr. Cool himself.

Hmmmm.... I never did lose the feeling of seeing Jackson with a purple lightsaber, when I *should* have seen Mace Windu with a purple lightsaber.... Samuel L. Jackson always seemed like a cameo to me in a way...

Don't get me wrong, I think Jackson is a great actor, but Bruce willis *is* john mcclane, Pierce brosnan *is* james bond and so on... Jackson just *is*... well, the cool motherf***** in all of his films....

jango was my fav, though it's a shame he got his ass wiped that easily and appeared very little in the movie.
IIRC he appeared only three times:
the assassination on padme
kamino where he fought with obi
genosis (sp?) where he was killed cheaply by mace

but what i though about was: he killed a jedi with just two shots from his cheap blaster, but didn't even manage to do a scratch to mace. i know, mace is a jedi master and all, but considering how (obviously) strong jango is, it was a cheap kill nevertheless

maybe this was made because samuel wanted to kill him with no problems to show how strong he is... well, just like somebody already said, his acting skills have made him arrogant :)

Mace Windu's thoughts: "YO MUTHA****A, I told you to SIT DOWN!!!!"

Mace Windu's actual words: "This party's over."

ROFL... omg ahahaa yeah id have to go with mace definitly.

all i wanted to hear at that point was

" and i will strike down upon thee with great vengance and furious anger"

" i always thought that was a bad ass thing to say before i saberd someones head off"

The best person was Obi-Wan

The best was:
Padme...Hands elsewhere...I mean....hands down.

I think no ONE character played spectacularly over another.

Ewan McGregor (Obi-Wan) and Christopher Lee (Dooku) I thought did especially well, but I also thought Natalie Portman (Padme) and Ian McDiarmid (Palpatine) showed progression in their characters over Ep1 and Ep1, Ep6 respectively.

As far as coolness?

I really DID enjoy Yoda's fight scene. Others I know hated it ("he walks with a cane, but then he can flip around like that?! Nuh-uh!" or, "It was just stupid,", or "It was funny as ****, but unbelievable.")

Before this point, Yoda was "respected", but really only as a figurehead of the Jedi Order; he had shown "authority", but not really "power". I thought it was HIGH time everyone knew just how powerful he was (he ABSORBS force LIGHTNING?!?!?!! Wow!!!) His "wigging out" with the saber - I thought - was a good testament to how the Force can overcome the "impossible", ("Do, or do not. There is no try.")and how powerful one CAN be when attuned to the force.

I enjoyed Dooku's character too; he's more complex than we really get to see in the film. I hope his history is brought more into the open in EP3.

Yeah, Jango was cool, but I really wish they would have kept the "Fett's" totally OUT of the prequels. OK, maybe just some "Mandalorians" would have been ok, but the SW universe is just too vast; I thought it just too coincidental for Boba's DAD(?!!?) to play a role in the prime elements of the story. I wish that had been handled differently. (and I wish Lucas had avoided neutering the Expanded Universe storyline - i.e. "Jaster Mereel" - on this point. :( I thought that was arrogant, or stupid... one of the two.

Dex. Dex is te best. Hands down. Four hands down. Name ONE character in all of creation that hugs Obi Wan Kenobi AND pulls up his pants?

He owns a space-diner!

He has a moustache!

He knows more than any droid does!

He's Dex! That means stong or something in latin. Dex-terity!

Dexter Jettster! He needs an action figure today!
Best character.

And the deathsticks guy.

05-24-2002, 11:27 PM
Deathsticks guy was great. Do you actually think he went home and rethought his life? Maybe Obi-Wan did the wrong thing, he might have likes deathsticks.

Anyway, wise choice Obi. My vote still goes with you.

05-25-2002, 12:52 AM
Tough to choose one...I enjoyed all the performances, Yoda was great (Finally we get to see why Yoda is the Master Jedi) , i also liked Padme (who doesn't, she's so hot.), Anakin was also very good (especially the scene when he's telling Padme what he did to the Tuken Raiders), Obi Wan was very good too (without even a second thought he jumps through the window after the droid...Very cool part), Mace takin jango's head off was also sweet...I can go on and on but i won't.

05-26-2002, 12:40 AM
My top 3 favs

#1 :syoda: Best Saberist Ever
#2 :jango: The coolest Bounty Hunter
#3 :amidala: She is so Hot

05-26-2002, 05:08 AM
C'Mon, everybody knows YODA is the best character, this film shows why he is THE JEDI MASTER and if you want to argue that point then I challenge you to a :saberg: battle.

Ep2 character, you overly obsessed dork. The dude is dead, let go, it's over.

I think Anakin. Hayden did a terrific job of balancing when he will show his "dark side" face and when to show the "light side" face. The lines "They're dead, and not just the men, but the women, and the children too. They're like animals, and I slaughtered them like animals. I HATE THEM", was his best line, as well as "Well, as long as it works". The eyes say it all. Not to mention the love scenes. Although they were poorly written, he did the best he could do with them. Very good performance, given the pressiure and well the prospect of the job he was under.

He WAS in Episode II, you dipsh´t. And anyway, I was obviously joking. Of course, you're apparently too dumb to pick up on that.

Yeah probably, and no HE WASN'T in Ep2. The voice doesn't qualify.

Master Qui-Gon
06-03-2002, 02:04 PM
Eh, I say it does. His character was in it. That qualifies. Obviously not what he meant when asking about favorite Episode II characters, but I did like him better than the other Ep 2 characters. Hence, my silly remark. Sheesh.

My fav character in EP II was Aayla Secura, though she sadly got so little screentime.

From the main characters I'd say Obi-Wan, he really evolved since EP I and you see him more growing towards the EP IV 'version'.

06-05-2002, 04:45 PM
i chose Dooku. Chr. Lee brings such stature to the role... it really is a Sith of a different kind. Lee succeeds in making Dooku charming (his conversation with Obi-Wan in the cell) and later on utterly evil (his grin during the battle with Obi-Wan; 'surely you can do better !')
