Great Movie Duels

One of the best parts of watching action movies is the great duels you see. They range from the classic (and longest) duel from "Scaramouche to Indiana Jones shooting his sword-wielding opponent before it even began. Then there are the amazing and dramatic duels from the original Star Wars series. Then came the Phantom Menace, which put athleticism and flashy moves over any grace or cleverness, and didn't make any sense as a story. Which was only slightly improved on in the following movies. After I saw those movies I wondered what happenned. Were they overwhelmed by the possibilities of new technology? Did Lucas interfere too much? After watching this fantasic video, I unfortunately have to conclude that the new Star Wars choreographers just sucked.
