I hear a lot of complaints about Dooku. I don't fully understand it. I really enjoyed the character. And I give Kudos to Lucas for creating him. It was probably very tempting to make the new Sith lord a bada$$ like Maul. Someone to sell more and more toys. Instead we got a different type of Sith lord. He was a masterful liar and manipulator (similar to Palps in that way). An older statesman who was elegant and devoid of conscience. Ready to kill old friends in the name of the Dark Side. A good range of emotions. And of course the acting by Christopher Lee. One of the best actors of any age. I wish he had more to do in Sith (perhaps kill him off later in the movie - switch places with Grevious).
