Until the release of ROTS on 5/19/05, I would like to discuss AOTC chapter by chapter on the DVD. There are 47 chapters to discuss over the next eight months, excluding Chapter 1: Opening Logos, Chapter 2: Attack of the Clones and Chapter 50: End Credits. Each discussion will last 5 days. At the end of 5 days, the following chapter will be posted. Chapter 26: Obi-Wan vs. Jango DISCUSSION: December 22, 2004 - December 26, 2004 DVD TIME INDEX: 60:43 - 63:38 Synopsis: Jango Fett and his son Boba are preparing to depart Kamino immediately, when they are interrupted by Obi-Wan Kenobi, who has been requested to capture the bounty hunter. Boba notices the Jedi and tells his father who is now is armor. Boba gets on board the Slave I. The Jedi draws his lightsaber as Jango fires at him with a blaster. Obi-Wan deflects the shots. Jango using his jetpack flies up to the top of one of the towers and continues firing. Obi-Wan regains his balance. Boba now inside the Slave I, directs the ship in Obi-Wan's direction, firing shots at the Jedi. Obi-Wan falls as Jango shoots a few more times. Jango flies off the tower, but Obi-Wan dropkicks him in midair. They both fall down to the landing pad. The bounty hunter loses his blaster. The Jedi strikes a few more blows to Jango's head. Jango then headbutts Kenobi, who loses his lightsaber. Flying via his jetpack, Jango shoots a cable at Obi-Wan's arm and drags him around the landing pad. The Jedi gains his balance and pulls the cable around one of the towers. Jango falls and the jetpack detaches and explodes. Obi-Wan then kicks Jango the ledge, but is still holding onto the other end of the cable. They both go over the ledge. Jango stops, but Obi-Wan descends even lower, finally detaching himself and throwing himself onto a walkway. Jango continues to crawl up the side of the landing pad and makes it to his ship. Obi-Wan makes it back up, but the Slave I takes off. Obi-Wan throws a homing beacon on the hull. The Slave I blasts away as Obi-Wan remains on the platform. END OF CHAPTER Opinion: This is probably my favorite action sequence of the prequel trilogy so far. Obi-Wan vs. Jango Fett is something that really makes this movie stand out. It's not your typical fight with a Jedi and that's why it's so dang good. Kamino is probably the best place to have a fight outside for this film. Now that we've established Jango as the rocket man on Coruscant, Obi-Wan now has to capture him. There was not one moment I disliked about the fist fight. I never thought Obi-Wan was capable of hand vs. hand combat as opposed to with lightsabers. It's also good to see Jango in action, since I saw Boba in ESB. It's perfectly choreographed as a back and forth fight between these two. Now that they are fleshed out as enemies a fight had to be in order. We couldn't see them duke it out in the apartment. Obi-Wan's witty remarks like "Oh that's not good" is now classic and fits right into Alec Guinness' original rendition of Obi-Wan. I'm glad that we have this scene and that it is about ten notches up from the failing rescue of Han on the East Landing Platform. Simply I love this scene and I hate to say it, but we're leaving Kamino. Not all tears are evil, because were going home to the planet that started it all, Tatooine. Very good chapter to wrap up the first hour of the movie.
