Oh, yeah the clip cut off the last half of the fight. He uses a bunch of reverse grip spins later in the fight. Here's the whole movie :)Donnie Yen - Dragon (Wu Xia) - 2011 English Subs
Hey wolf, thanks for jumping into the discussion :) In regards to fight scenes I really do believe one's appreciation is very subjective.
However, that is my point about the spins. If you watch the clip, the spins are all there (potentially argued as a diversionary tactic), but they aren't highlighted in the fight in the same way they are in the Prequels. And there's almost no dialogue in the clip.
Regarding ROTS, I agree that they split it up more with dialogue, and definitely there was more emotional impact in terms of Master vs Disciple and knowing Anakin was turning evil. But I felt like that was more the impact of an amazingly emotional story carrying the fight choreography and not the other way around. To me the dialogue felt very out of place in the context of the fight. It broke up any rhythm. Like it was two separate scenes one of dialogue and one of fighting that were spliced together.
I haven't watched AOTC since the it first came out...mostly in order to pretend it never existed. ::) But I just rewatched the final fight (which I had good memories of b/c: YODA and no mention of sand). And yeah they have close ups and some dialogue. But wow it was just horrendous. It felt like Lucas gave up half way through mapping the choreography and went home.
