Duel of Fates from The Phantom Menace Really isn’t That Impressive

There’s been a long running debate in the Star Wars community that the best fight scene in the entire saga is the final battle between Qui-Gon, Obi-Wan, and Darth Maul in The Phantom Menace.  I too used to believe it to be the best lightsaber battle of the series, but then I watched the embedded video below.

This was sent to me from someone in the stunt community that knows what goes into doing choreographed sword fights, so I hold his opinion above a common Star Wars fan’s.  Sure the video is a little over dramatic, but if you really watch it you’ll realize that the ‘Duel of Fates’ was nothing more than a bad dance involving lightsabers.  Check it out below, and let us know which Star Wars fight you think is the best.  You’ve been wanting to never see TPM footage again…
