Pardon me while I geek out for a moment.
You may or may not remember all the hype when Star Wars: The Phantom Menace was about to come out in theatres. A lot of the promotional merchandise centred on Darth Maul – the big baddie with the dual-bladed light sabre (which looked positively nerdgasmic). All the trailers showcased the majestic martial artistry of Scottish stuntman Ray Park, the man behind all that red and black make-up. We (well…I) couldn’t wait until our heroes came face-to-face with Darth Maul. It was going to be epic.
