There's no doubt about it - Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace was a big ol' disappointment. But most people will begrudgingly admit that despite all its flaws - of which there were really quite a few - the final light saber fight with Darth Maul was pretty decent... or was it?
Just take a look this video from French YouTuber 'FirstManOnTheSpoon'.
