Here we go with an action scene in AOTC. Things were already tense between Jango Fett and Obi-Wan Kenobi when they met earlier. Obi-Wan knows Jango is totally lying and is the bounty hunter responsible for the attempt on Padme’s life, while Jango knows the jig is up. Which is why he and his clone/son Boba are trying to get off Kamino as quickly as possible when Obi-Wan tries to stop him after Yoda and Mace Windu order him to bring back Jango for questioning.
As Boba scrambles onto the ship, Jango in full armor and Obi-Wan battle it out on a rainy landing pad. AOTC uses a lot of cloudy skies, which is a Lucas shorthand for things mysterious, hidden, and unclear. Kamino is itself an enigmatic out-of-the-way, taken-off-the-map planet of constant rainstorms and inhabited by an enigmatic race of alien beings whose specialty is cloning. The big secret Kamino is hiding is the creation of a massive clone army that had been done in secret for over a decade and the destructive implications of which are symbolized by the storms raging outside. The clouds on Kamino are dark gray and black, making it the most ominous location in the film.
Obi-Wan basically spends most of AOTC chasing down deep dark secrets and he’s stumbled onto a doozy. But Jango is a more than capable and dangerous fellow, even matched up against Obi-Wan. Jango is able to escape (even while bumping his head).
As with all good action scenes, it comes down to stunt coordination and editing. The result is fast-paced yet unlike with a lot of action scenes these days, I can actually follow what’s happening. Bonus points to Ewan McGregor, who really got put through the wringer when doing many of the stunts himself, and to Temuera Morrison for having to do a fight scene in that armor. ILM and the on set special effects crew of course deserve its props for convincing effects, combining practical and digital elements. A great popcorn moment.
