Dooku is clearly not a ninja, and isn't played by Ray Park. Hence he isn't a good villain. Although I agree that Maul could've had much better and more lines.
You don't have to be a ninja to be cool. Dooku obviously can't jump around because the actor's hella old, but if you watch TCW, Dooku > Maul anyday.
The "pseudo romance" isn't that big of a stretch. Padme was 15 and Anakin was 10. So, no.
Yeah trying hitting on a 10 year old as a 15 year old. It's *********** creepy IRL, and it's creepy in the movie. Also, she doesn't look 15 in the movie. She looks like she's in her early 20s.
Obi-Wan was tired out from the lightsaber fighting, hence he couldn't use Force Speed. Maul could've killed Obi when he jumped, like Obi-wan did to Anakin in Ep. III.
Personally, i liked Ep. III best. Such an epic duel at the end.
They all got a moment's rest when the laser doors were separating all 3. He could've used force speed.
And yes, Maul totally should have been able to see Obi-Wan's attack coming, but stood there like an idiot. Another dumb thing about that fight.
