"Maul was about as interesting as a toenail clipping, in my opinion." But, in the end of the day, Park actually had expression in his voice. Far better than the monotone of Lee. Honestly, if Lucas thinks he can put any old Englishman and make us think it's Shakespeare, he has another thing coming. "The final duel was great, but I leave TPM knowing more about Sio Bibble than Maul, and that's bad news." Why? It's good to have something that will FOREVER remain a mystery in the Star Wars universe. We know absolutely nothing about him. Zip. Zilch. Nadda. "Maul could have been so much better had we heard him say more than 4 words, or even some explanation of what he had done in the past (i.e. ruin people's stuff like he does in Shadow Hunter). He was too much of a mystery." Before AotC, we didn't know jack about Boba Fett. Thanks for ruining that, George. Everyone liked Boba, everyone likes Maul. "Dooku doesn't hold a candle to Vader, but at least we get some sense of his past in the conversation with Obi-Wan, and through his duels, we learn about his prior Jedi relationships." He trained Qui-Gon. That's about it. "He is more matured than Maul as well, making him a more interesting character." If you've seen the movie Signs, you'll know that maturity doesn't equal character. Look at how immature those kids were, but still great characters. "Dooku seems like Sidious' comrade, Maul seemed like his child." Maybe because Maul was an apprentice. Dooku's a frickin geezer, he's been trained as a Jedi and has an advantage over Maul.
