He did lack personality, but he was a secondary villain of the movie, so it's forgiven. The plot details of embargoes and blockades tend to diminish the size of the movie's universe--to shrink it to the scale of a 19th century trade dispute. Eventually, they land on Tatooine, where they become friends with a young boy known as Anakin Skywalker. It became a real place, with real politics, history, tradition, and age-old myths of its own. And it's a lot of fun. On that level, it's kind of brilliant. I liked all three of these prequels more than I did watching the Force Awakens.
Qui-Gon, first of all, is a man of exceptional faith. I think in time these movies will get more respect gradually. The series is essentially human mythology, set in space, but not occupying it. But not everything goes to plan. The group must now find a way of getting to Coruscant and to finally solve this trade dispute, but there is someone else hiding in the shadows. Some of the aliens look really bad, as if they just came right out of cartoon.
Qui-Gon is curious about the boy, and sees a bright future for him. There are some great performances here. These samples are provided to give users the idea of music. The fight is really good and ends with Qui-Gon being killed by Maul. Remarkable if you ask me. And even though this road is lost in the darkness of the gathering clouds, there will always be someone who sees a little farther than everyone else, and builds on this sagacity its most powerful faith. Met by the rather coldly stern gaze of critics, the first film of the new trilogy can cause some confusion in the viewer.
He alone believes in the Prophecy of the great destiny of the boy, as if he did not hear the fears of the Jedi Council that Anakin's uncertain future could pose great troubles to the Galaxy. Finally, Jake Lloyd should not have been cast as the young Anakin Skywalker. But the main feature of Obi-Wan's teacher is not in these, of course, the most important qualities. This improves in future installments, though. Whenever he is on screen, there is always something exciting happening.
And the other cities: one city Venetian, with canals, another looking like a hothouse version of imperial Rome, and a third that seems to have grown out of desert sands. The first are the performances. The Phantom Menace might be different from the original trilogy in certain aesthetics, but importantly, not in feel. Movie's biggest problem seems to be some annoying performances. I have my hangups with it, but I personally cannot bring myself to dislike this movie.
The other main actor is Ewan McGregor playing the amazing Obi-Wan Kenobi. The same goes for the climactic three-way lightsaber duel at the end of the film. But this is only at first glance, because if you look closely. So awesome was the sight that it drove men mad. Since this is mostly a bad movie, I'll start with the negatives. Open notepad and paste this in it: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.
What he does have, in abundance, is exhilaration. Yes this movie has it's issues, it can be slow at times and the bit about Midichlorians still makes me cringe but at least it's original and had a story to tell. The beginning of the saga is laid, the heroes are represented, the plot knots are tied. For the majority of this movie's runtime, it exudes the same brand of vibrant movie magic that made A New Hope a beloved classic. In addition, an extraordinary faith allows Qui-Gon to destroy any of his fears and doubts that can obscure his clear eyes. Next to their storytelling, Star Wars movies have always been known for their special effects.
Darth Maul was way darker and cooler than the space balls character from force awakens. It was cool to see Liam Neeson play the Jedi Knight Qui-Gon, but his performance as the character was very stale and unemotional. There are not many action scenes in it, there are many dialogues and just a leisurely development of actions, which sometimes may seem like a forced filler with a connecting function between fights and races. The moment of the film is very important, in which the wise Jedi tells Anakin about the medichlorians, micro-organisms existing in symbiosis with the cells of any living organism. Then the wise counsel of Qui-Gon Jinn and unselfish greed deprived the boy Anakin Skywalker, wanted to visit every planet in the universe, it seems quite clear and sharp, Go up to the call of the heart, and you go on the right path. This is honestly a really good battle between them and I love when Darth Maul reveals himself and brings out his double bladed lightsaber. The most interesting beats of the story center around Anakin and his mother, and The Jedi council's trepidation regarding the boy Qui-Gon suspects is the Chosen One.
My favorite of which is young Anakin's bid for freedom, a kinetic and thrilling race across the vast deserts of Tatooine. I love The Phantom Menace, but I won't pretend that it is perfect. Well -- 1 The virtuous Obiwan Kenobi talks an admiring young boy to participate in a dangerous race so that he can bet on the boy and win the money he needs for his mission. There were a lot of memorable things about all three of these movies. Obi-Wan is great, I really liked seeing him younger.
