    Windu is a badass. Sam Jackson is a badass. It's only fitting. :cool:

    Jackson is very good at it. I can't imagine any one else in this role. I'm glad GL gave him the part :) Allthough I still think it would have been funny if Ahnold played Mace :p

    Samuel L. Jackson as Mace Windu is like...

    Allen Iverson and basketball...

    Amazing and perfect. :)

    That scene in the trailer where he and his posse ignite their blades is so bad ass.

    I'm glad he's bald, too.

    I can't imagine him w/o hair.

    :p

    He's perfect. Should've had some better lines, tho.

    So far he hasn't said anything very memorable.

    "This party's over"

    I liked that line.

    The guy is so bad ass, that he has a violet lightsaber...

    I think Mace Windu is a great representation of the Jedi order and Sam Jackson portrays him in a very serious manner, as it should be.
    Good character. Not much going on with him, though.

    I remember a lot of people complaining that Sam Jackson seemed very stiff and wooden in TPM. I didn't see it that way at all. To me, Jackson showed a lot of restraint in order to play the character as a very serious, thoughtful, subdued and devoted member of the Jedi Council.



    :cool: Mace Windy,
    too windy for spoilers!

    Plus he really was only in one or two scenes in TPM, and they were in the Council. THat didn't give for much of a chance to show his character. He had many more scenes in AotC, and really expanded his character.

    Kinda vague title there, lol.

    Yeah Jackson hit the nail on the head with his character, its almost as if Lucas made the role for him. ;) :p

    ^ That is technically possible, since he begged GL for a role, and then he got this nice big one...

    I would have liked to have seen an ubber powerful female jedi instead of good ol' Samuel Jackson spouting lines like he's reading from an instruction manual. I understand that he wasn't given much to work with though, he's ok...

    eh....the purple saber thing is a little silly though, I think. :p

    i've never read so many threads where people liked the character. very cool.. As great as he had been; i think he is going to be fantastic in ROTS; but he always has had a 50-50 following..

    i think he's great.

    Did you know that on his lightsaber hilt has been inscribed with BMF on the bottom of his saber, he said so himself. just for you guys to know and the role of mace windu was made for sam jackson too.
    And people his character is the only jedi to create his own form of lightsaber combat too anyone who has read Shatterpoint or the ROTS novel would know what im talking about....

    Can you imagine him with a different color?

    no.

    His character improved from TPM where he had nothing to do but sit on the council to AOTC where he got in a good dose of the action and story. ROTS looks like he'll improve even more.

    As an actor SLJ brought the Star Wars feel I expected but put in that touch of SLJ is in all of his films.
