Star Wars – Revenge of the Sith: Anakin Skywalker vs Obi Wan Kenobi

Prev Next

Now, don’t dismiss me for giving any credit to any of the Star Wars prequels. I can mock Jar-Jar with the best of them, trust me. But there are good moments in the pre-trilogy trilogy, such as this confrontation between Anakin (soon to become Darth Vader) and his former mentor, Obi Wan.  Sparks fly (literally), there’s a lot of fast-paced lightsaber action, and there’s a great moment about 3 minutes in where they both jump onto a gas-pipe thing and wobble there for a bit, not really doing anything, before jumping back off.That’s an unusual bit of realism in a fight that takes in lava lakes, collapsing structures and Ewan McGregor just looking damn manly a lot. It also seems to go on forever, but it’s not a bad use of 8 minutes or so. As you’d expect, there’s also some very stirring music and, yes, some painfully wooden dialog. It may not be a classic film, but it’s a classic scene.
