Re: Mace killing Jango

Of course! What would any self-respecting justice-dealing person have done? It was war. Jango was Mando and he knew this. In fact, he would have done the same, I'm sure.

Let's switch the places for a moment. The Mandalorians serve the galaxy as guardians, and the Jedi are a dying race, desparate, willing to do anything to survive. This includes bounty hunting. Mace tries to kill Padme, then runs off to his little retreat on the Rim. Some Mando'ad goes to smite and retrieve, and fails.

Jango helps organize an assault on the enemy and, being the most able warrior, leads the charge. He sees Mace has a kid. Duh! He would feel bad, but how many orphans have the Mandalorians left in their wake over the course of history? He'd kill Mace, win the battle, and have no remorse. I suppose this would make Jango evil? If so, then the whole Mandalorian race is evil. People die in war. They leave loved ones behind. Orphans are created in war. This can't be changed. Jango knew this, and I'm certain Mace did. They're shaking hands somewhere in the Force and agreeing 'it had to be done. I would have done the same in your place.'

Re: Mace killing Jango

Supposedly, decapitation was reserved for the most dangerous of enemies. Jango Fett was probably the most dangerous non Force user of the galaxy. He effortlessly killed Jedi Council (Master) Coleman Trebor, and if you count EU, he killed Komari Vosa with little problem either (I hardly lost any health bars when killing Komari Vosa in the "Bounty Hunter" game). Mace almost got immolated by Jango's flamethrower.

I doubt there was any way to capture him, either. If Mace had not killed him, what would the next move be? Flamethrower? Wrapping Mace up with the cord shot from the Mandalorian wrist armor? It took Luke a bit of time to get out of it when Boba Fett used it on him in ROTJ.

I'm not saying I liked what happened, heck, I think they killed off Jango and Qui Gon way too soon. However, I don't think Mace's move would call for immediate dark side point.

Re: Mace killing Jango

Has anyone ever seen Mace's expression after he kills Jango? My brother paused it one time and it looks like he's confused or something.... I don't know what it means, but it's worth a look.

I saw that look. He looks like he's consumed by hatred.

Re: Mace killing Jango

i think that mace is in tune with the dark side. But jango new that boba would be an orphin that was the last part of boba's tarning to be a great bounty hunter the ablity to be on your own. and to deal with loss.

some blood lines were ment to end.

Yes, hatred. I've studied that look before.

But then, I guess some of it would depend on your POV. smile

Re: Mace killing Jango

He really didn't have any reason to hate Jango, did he? Why would he hate him more than a simple battle droid? I think that it was a look of focus and concentration. Though I may be thinking of a different scene...

Hillarious........i think you're right in some aspects......but i do think mace knew how dangerous jango really was.....i mean COMEON......he just about got cooked with their first meeting........i dont think id give him a second chance to deep fry me either.....so either way.....it is   yet is not justified...

Re: Mace killing Jango

but think about it. Jango was the only person boba loved, and they were together for 11 years. i would become attatched to someone i was with for my entire child life. and to witness that person that you cherish the most, that loves back the most, get brutally decapitated by someone from the jedi, who jango had already explained are their worst enemies, would probably cause boba to be hurt in a way that time nor any medical treatment known to man could heal...

Re: Mace killing Jango

Actually, Boba was still 10 when Jango was killed. But you're almost right, and it could techniaclly be counted as being 11, because he was only two or three months away from turning 11.

Re: Mace killing Jango

Ah, quite possibly one of the best events in SW history.  Coulda been gorier though.

Re: Mace killing Jango

Gorier!?  I lose sleep every time I forget to close my eyes during that scene, and you want it gorier?  I like gore too, but not on someone wearing Mandalorian armor, and not in a PG-rated movie.

Re: Mace killing Jango

Lightsabers cautarize when striking most species. There are a few species that a lightsaber won't cautarize, such as the Aqualish. But most do.

Re: Mace killing Jango

I love gore in most movies, but in Star Wars it upsets me because it seems to go against the whole spirit of the film.

Re: Mace killing Jango

Yeah...the one thing about SW for me...is that it is such an awesome movie...and it doesn't have alot of gore. Normally, since im a normal guy, i like gory, bloody, fighting movies with lots of action. But SW does a fine job without it...in fact, it became my favorite group of movies...(p.s.  there are close following seconds)

I couldn't agree with you more, Spy. If SW had a lot of gore, than there wouldn't be the adoring lil padawan SW kids watching: SW doesn't become as popular.

Re: Mace killing Jango

Well, III was PG-13 and pretty gory, and there's still fans.
And I know lightsabers cauterize, but maybe the acklay could have torn him in half or something . . .
And what is the spirit of the film?  It wasn't originally made for little kids.  I not saying it sould have been like Gladiator (awsome movie) or something, but I wish the notch was slightly higher.
