Light Saber Fight Scene

Fight scene in Star Wars: The Phantom Menace that occurs with Qui-Gon Jinn (Liam Neeson) & Obi-One Kenobi (Ewan McGregor) facing off with Darth Maul (Ray Park) and his double sided light saber. I found it fascinating to see that Liam Neeson had the same fighting style here as he did in Rob Roy. He leaves himself wide open to strikes. Not sure if that was intentional part of the chorography or just his style. Ray Park is clearly an artist with this staff.

Ewan McGregor gives quite an impressive performance with the speed of his attack and defense. Though you can tell this is fully choreographed, the second part of this battle is clearly the most impressive.
