I'm always dubious when it comes to Fan-Made Star Wars films. Sure, some do a great job on one or two asepects of their respective films, but they are generally forgettable as soon as the credits role. When it comes to Darth Maul: Apprentice, they finally produced something worthy of discussion. Granted, this isn't a film that is going to be remembered for it's dialogue. When you think of Star Wars, you are expecting action and in DMA, that's exactly what we get here. This is essentially a 17 minute light saber duel. Damn good choreography from start to finish. Some kick-ass aerial shots (using a drone, obviously). The music was good too. But the film hinges on the actor who plays Darth Maul. I swear, they must have found Ray Parks twin because I have never seen anyone come close to looking like the original DM and this guy OWNS it. He is the spitting image of Ray/Darth. I highly recommend you check this out. It's a good "origin" story to boot and feels right at home in the Star Wars Universe. Pun intended.  ;D

This is just as good as the film itself.
