View Full Version : Why didnt they chase Jango?

This is from a topic I brought up in Chat today.

In the beginning chase scene through coruscant Anakin and Obi go far out of their way to grab Zam. Even falling a long distance to land on her/his speeder. And entering a rough bar to get their hands on her/him. They finally grab Zam and drag "it" outside. What happens? A dart hits "it" in the neck and they see Jango jet up. Here is my big question. If they were willing to go through all that for Zam how come they didnt go after Zam's killer? He wasnt any further away then Zam was anytime during the chase and there were plenty of speeders laying about. Why didnt one of them jump in and go after him? They didnt even look like they cared about it.
"Oh there goes the guy that just killed our only knowledge of what happened and maybe the ring leader in all this. Dont think we will pursue him. Lets just sit here and listen to her garbled last message before she dies and spend a week trying to find some world that doesnt exist"

it would have been hard to chase jango because they did'nt have a speeder and by the time they got one jango would have been long gone.

Yes, it would have been one thing if Jango had run away on foot, but he jet-packed away, strait up. Unless they managed to fly somehow, it would have been almost impossible to catch him.

Plus they were probably getting tried and the scene was long enough already. :D

A Jedi would never carry something as clumsy and random as that. ;) :D

A blaster's only clumsy and random if you don't know how to use it, kid ;)

Lightsabers own, though :D

So when Obi falls off the destroyed droid, Zam jumps into her speeder, and Anakin finally after several minutes cathes Obi, isnt Zam long gone and too far to pursue and yet they do? They must have some Jedi Tracking skill because of all that happened they always knew where Zam was. Anakin (before he lept over the side) was looking straight down for the car. He must have had some force tracking or something to be able to spot that car so far away. He fell 5 seconds. So that car way off behind them when he fell. Guess Force Tracking dont work for guys with jet packs wearing silver mandalorian armor. "Oh younglings. About force tracking, I want to teach hmmm. But for catching silver armored mandalores with jetpacks it is not."
And there were speeders all over. At least closer then having to climb up to a roof and look for one "he liked". And the speeder. as Anakin and Zam proved, can go any direction.

I think that speeder was either theirs or Padme's, I think the Jedi code would include somthing as basic as not stealing.

Kaito Fett

I dont think their code would include no stealing. More along the lines of taking something in an emergency is allowed. They arent allowed possessions after all. So I think that includes sporty yellow speeders.

Jedi: We are sorry to inform that your kids were tortured and massacred last night.
Mother: OMG but your Jedi. Couldnt you stop it?
Jedi: Sorry miss but we were across town and could not get there in time. Its against the Jedi Code to steal transport.
Mother: My kids died because you cant get transport?
Jedi: Yes miss I am sorry. They died painfully and slowly because it took us two hours to get there. The killer had plenty of time. But at least our code is safe. And that is great news.

Actually, I don't think Jango got that far. I am guessing he hid between buildings, or in traffic or something. A person on jetpack is a lot smaller then a person in a speeder.

Because if they did go after jango, they probly would have caught him and the movie would only be an hour and a half long...

I like it very much, my apprentice. It reminds me of........me.:D

If Tyrion makes fun of you, just let me know. I have a ruler he despises. :D

welll anyways, back on the topic, I think that Jango was too quick for Obi and Annie at the time, because you remember how he shot down that one jedi in the arena? It's probably the same deal. He did give Obi-wan a run for his money on Kamino.

Pada-Wan
07-04-2002, 01:57 PM
btw, can padawan's have green lightsabers? or is that only for jedi knights? and yea, by the time they go to a speeder, jango was long gone IMO

yes they can. We musn't stray too far off topic. We musn't fall to the spam side.

Plus, I think that jetpacks are faster then speeders. There's just something about them.

Lime-Light
07-04-2002, 02:00 PM
....because there wouldnt be much of a movie left if they had caught him there. No Kamino, no clones, no Geonosis fight, no end saber battle.

Jango is an expert at jet flying anyway. They would just have wasted their NRG looking for him.

I was beginning to wonder this but I think GL just really wanted to cut to the library scene so that he made sure that everyone knew that Jedi Read books, and it probably has something to do with the junior scolastic program.

No im sure Obi-1 askes Anakin why he took so long and he said he was looking for a fast speeder to take.

Cant obi or anikan force pull him to them? Or saber throw their saber? Wouldnt that have killed him?

WolfmanNCSU
07-05-2002, 09:01 PM
Yes, it would, but they could sense in the force that it would really ruin the movie cause it would only leave the love story. No chase to find Jango and discover the clone army or a large battle at the end.

I dont tihnk Jango Fett had to do anything with the clones... it seemed like Count Dukko (dunno how you spell it) had everything controlled.. all Jango Fett did was trying to fight a jedi and in 2 seconds he got his head cut off... :saberb: :fett:

HA! FOOL! Yoda really said:

:yoda:Blind we are, if creation of this clone army, we could not see.

:rolleyes:

Your kind of mixing up lines from that entire sceen.... :eek:

:mace:Mace: "I think it's time to inform the senate, that our power to use the force has diminished..."

:yoda:Yoda: "Only the dark lord of the sith know of our weakness, tell the senate, and multiply our adversarys will."

Don't feel bad, many people can't recite every line from the movie ;):p

I think both Obi-Wan and Anakin were bone tired... Obi-Wan had jumped through a window and was hanging from an irate droid for a while and then got said droid shot out of his hands and fell a few hundred feet into a speeder and then he was given multiple heart-attacks by Anakin's driving. Anakin had to race through a huge apartment building, "borrow" a speeder (yes, it was stolen), jump out of said speeder onto another speeder (nother drop of a few hundred feet) fight a bounty-hunter in mid-air and then fell off of the speeder onto the ground. Then, both of them chased her for blocks through crowded streets. I think the adrenaline had probably worn off and they were both ready to collapse. Plus, if they were out chasing bounty hunters all night, they weren't there protecting Padme. Why waste time chasing a bounty hunter across the planet while he has his guard up when he's left you a perfectly viable clue and you can find him while he's not expecting you?
