[Review] Darth Maul: Apprentice

Well if you like massive and extended lightsaber battles with Darth Maul facing a small mob of Jedi... well this one is for you. Not much for dialogue however.

I will admit that Darth Maul to me, is a throwaway character. One whose only evil act is to face Qui-Gon... Oh and he kills a bunch of other villains... He gets his butt kicked. By a padawan. He sucks so bad, like Boba Fett, they had to bring him back off-screen. Both are little bitches.

However, here we find Maul as a competent villain who can fight on his own. This story makes a better introduction to the character than The Phantom Menace did with the hours of Jar-Jar. The choreography is absolutely fantastic, fast-paced, and full of twists and stunts.

As much as I came into this thinking "who cares about that little bitch," I left this movie going: "This guy is pretty dope." I cannot help but going 4/5 because the story tells us little more about the character other than to showcase his fighting prowess.

This is a fight movie. All action.
