View Full Version : Episode II doesn't make Jedi weak. Rather, other Jedi strong

I like Episode II alot. Especially the arena scene. In this scene we are shown that not all Jedi are gods who can't be killed.

This doesn't make them weak however, there are something like 10 droids to every 1 Jedi.

I like the scene because it shows that Yoda's line of Jedi (Dooku, Obi, Qui-Gon, Ani) and a few others are the strongest of the Jedi, it emphasises their power compared to other Jedi.

i never really thought of jedi as invincible.. if you have 50 laser shots coming at you i dont think you will move fast enough to block those hehe. and a laser shot hurts a jedi just as much as a storm trooper. maybe even more because of no armor.

Well Vader absorbs Han Solo's blaster shot into his hand then the pulls his gun from him. Thats was awsome:cool:

Vader can absorb the shot to his hand because his hand is made of metal and all sorts of robotics as seen in Return of the Jedi when luke cuts it off. So you could say he has his own "armor":holosid: :lsduel: :syoda: :monkey4:

The force that they talk about in the movies is just life force that every living thing has on some level. The life force in a jedi as it should be called just enhances a beings abilities to super levels. Its the Midachlorians that make jedi special. They act as a focuser and intensifier of the already present life force. Much like a magnifying glass will focus light to make it more powerful.
The force itself gives evrything life and animates every being, but in the jedi its greater.
