Post How rude!

many of you have probably seen this but maby never realised why im bringing this up.


In TPM when qui-gons fighting Maul, Maul pulls of that cheap-ass move on qui-gon. The one where he hits qui-gonb in the chin then shoves the saber through him.

I dont believe that that should have been added to the movie, seeing any jedi even a sith would never dare try something as cheap as that.

or am i mistaken ?...is (sorry..WAS) darth maul different to the rest

It's not cheap, it's combat. In combat, you do anything you can to get the advantage.

If I were fighting you, and say, punched you below the belt, I wouldn't stop and say, "I'm sorry, let's start over again".

It's all about survival.

Thumbs up

It's the whole "survival" vs. "honor" deal.

If it were like a regulated competition then maybe you'd have a case, but in a no-holds barred fight to the death, anything goes.

The thing is, maul can be as dirty as he wants. No-ones watching, except for obi wan who he intends to kill anyway, and the camera which will show it to millions worldwide, but thats not the point.

I thought the Qui-Gon death was nothing compared to the cheesiness of the Maul death.

I mean, come on George, Maul is supposed to be a powerful SithLord, and he's gonna fall for some crap like that? That's the oldest one in the book! He had a full 2 seconds to evade it, and all he did was watch Obi flip over him.

Very un-Jedi-like.

well yeah but...if you were in his position and some ball of cloth flies over your head, youd be a little confused frightened and probably shocked
so it would take you a while to react as well

Obi-Wan should have chopped him in two while he was jumping up, that's my opinion.

Errr, Maul can't speak...?

I distinctly recall him having a few lines in the movie, although not as many as he should have had. This doesn't mean he's dumb though...

How about the counter point to that:

"The ability to speak does not make you intellegent."
