Kamehameha: Obi-Wan Kenobi vs. Jango Fett

“Kamehameha” is a series of post where we examine various action scenes from movies, anime, and cartoons, to name a few. It’s name comes from one of the most famous special moves in Dragon Ball Z. We chose a DBZ reference because it’s the definition of an action show…minus the drawn out stare down filler.

 
Hey guys it’s time for another edition of “Kamehameha.”  Today’s awesome fight features Obi-Wan Kenobi and Jango Fett.  Let me be clear with you: I disliked the prequels.  However, they did give us some awesome villains, and one of those villains happens to be the father of my favorite Star Wars character of all-time.  Yup Boba Fett is my favorite character, which makes Jango Fett the de facto number 2 favorite character.  It was awesome to see a Mandalorian in combat with a Jedi, since Boba got a pretty pathetic “ending.”  I only have a few things to note:

  • I thoroughly enjoyed this fight: it was fast paced and full of action.  Blaster fire, lightsaber twirling, explosions, hand-to-hand combat, and jetpack flying all in one fight!
  • Obi-Wan isn’t too shabby of a hand-to-hand combat fighter.  His wit is on full display too, as he deftly escapes being dragged around like a rag doll.  And of course he makes a witty remark (“Oh not good!”).
  • The one thing I didn’t really understand is how Boba missed with Slave I’s blasters.  How the hell do you miss?  And even if he did miss, the explosion should have really hurt him.  In fact, Jango’s missile explosion should have really hurt.  Oh well, this is me just nitpicking.
