Darth Maul is one of my favorite Star Wars characters. It's a shame his character life was so short. He was such a badass that I had a crush on him
. His dual-bladed lightsaber and his martial arts skills were exquisite.
Too bad Ray Park's voice wasn't dastardly enough and required a voice actor...
Darth Maul is from the foruth movie 'The Phantom Menace' which is by no means a classic.
I've watched all the films plenty of times and I do enjoy them. My favourite is 'Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back' from 1980.
The first three films were great. I prefer to pretend that the latter three don't really exist.
The Phantom Menace is no gem, but at the very least we did learn why Luke is so whiny: Like father like son I suppose.
I personally have never seen these movies but my 5 year old and all his junior kindergarten friends love them. They have made a cartoon of it now for younger kids - and they have the costumes. Everything old is new again!
Speaking of costumes, I recall dressing up as Admiral Akbar as a kid for Halloween. I vividly remember trying not to rip the vinyl jumpsuit while sitting and sweating behind the plastic mask begging for air through the nostril holes.
