Obi Wan to slow.

Does anyone notice how slow Obi is at the duel of the fates? When he jumps up from falling he sees Maul and Qui fighting....And it takes him about 1:00 minute to get to the shields...Then when he runs through the shields either shut faster or hes jsut slow again. -.- I know they needed that par tfor the story but could'nt they have done it a little better?

Hmmm yeah they couldve made it better. But if Obi did make it through Ani wouldnt have become a jedi.

Yeah, he does seem to sort of take his time. If my master was fighting the first Sith to show up in about 1000 years I think I would hustle a little bit more, wouldn't you?

when he's runnin to the energy beam thingo he surely could have used force - speed to get there quicka


Some of the funniest moments in Star Wars:

Qui-Gon Jinn (gesturing to nudge Watto's mind): "I don't have anything else, but credits will do fine."
Watto: "No, they won't!"
Qui-Gon Jinn (nudging harder): "Credits will do fine."
Watto: "No, they won't! What, you think you're some kind of Jedi, waving your hand around like that? I'm a Toydarian! Mind tricks don't work on me, only money!"

Exile: "I believe they call that 'pulling a Bindo'"

Obi runs kind of funny in that scene. His hands are flaring out to the sides and he is running like a girl.

You guys don't know the first rule of fighting? You never run into a fight you can get hurt real bad that way. Your suppose to move as fast as you can and still be able to stop without getting your clock cleaned because your momentum is still carrying you forward. If you look at when the first energy beam shuts on him he slides and barely misses it.

. Imagine him force running towards Maul. :swipe: dead Obi-wan.

This goes for real life too. Don't ever run full speed into a fight. If you get hit you'll get hurt real bad.

I guess you're right. He does have that Fight technique doesn't he, and it proved to be right in two occasions against Sith in combat. The first fight against Maul, Qui-Gon runs in and gets run through, the second fight Anakin charges in and gets charged up!!

I guess Obi-Wan knows what he's doing after all, let the other guy go in first and soften him up, though it didn't work as well in the second fight. Yoda came in after he sent in his two wipper snappers to soften Dooku up.

I agree, if obi-wan has run into fight maul, he'd be running, have to stop and he'd slide into maul's saber.

Also, the reason he took a moment to jump up IMO is qui-gon and maul were fighting and if he'd have jumped up next to them, qui-gon would be distracted and maul would kill him. - waste of time though

Also, what were those red energy things?


IM NOT GOING TO BE ON THE FORUMS VERY OFTEN NOW! I MIGHT BE ON TIME TO TIME, BUT IVE BASICLY GIVEN UP THE FORUMS NOW!!!!

Anakin would have been trained anyways - he would have been trained PROPERLY and by a true Jedi Master, not one who had a child forced upon him as the last wishes of his Master.

Nobody wanted him to be a Jedi. It's because it was Qui-Gon's last wish that Yoda allowed to train him, if I remember correctly. So, EDJ is right here.

Obi Wan was a Padawan at this time. You shouldn't compare him with Qui Gon or Maul! He had to train more.

Of padawan, Obi-Wan only had the rank. As Qui-Gonn said, he was ready to pass final tests...

If that is so, JO/JA are the worst Jedi simulations ever.

Obi-Wan slow? Well he did kinda just get knocked down atleast 500 feet onto a metal bridge. I don't know if you've ever fallen 500 feet but even 20 feet knocks the wind out of you.

Well, I think Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan should have been alot faster and they would have the upper hand of the fight. Right until they get separated. The Darth Maul vs. Qui-Gon fight should have been more intense, and longer.

The Maul fight is my favorite out of all, save for Obi v Ani. There was a great feeling of intenseness.

Plus, Maul is hardcore.

As far as Obi being too slow, I think he could have been a liiittle bit faster. But he was trying. I definitely think that he could have gotten to Maul the 2nd time before getting stuck behind the first laser thing. But hey, it made him pissed to see Jinn die, and he kicked ass.

That's all I wanted to see.




That's the last time I buy anything just because it's furry!

True.

Has it ever crossed anyone's mind that Obi-Wan may just be scared? It's an interesting theory. Hoping by the time he gets to the fight that his legendary master had defeated the most evil and intense looking SW baddie EVER. Of course, it didn't work out that way and he had to get revenge/calm down/do what had to be done.

Maybe the shot of obi-wan running behind Maul and Qui-gon fighting was zoomed a little bit. That and the fact that the camera was facing the exact direction Ewan was running might make him not seem as far away.

Maybe Maul cast "Force Slow" on him?

Perhaps Obi-Wan's ping was just too high, in the end... but when his master suddenly lagged out and disconnected, there was enough bandwidth available to let him move normally again...
