One of my(and I would guess, many others') main complaints regarding the prequel trilogy, in particular parts two and three, were the heavy usage of CGI. No more sets, little of the action is "live", heck, quite a few of the people aren't even real, but animated. I was quite happy to learn that the fight scenes in Episode III, with the obvious exclusion of one particular fighter, was actually really done. Live action. Some stunt people, yes, but at least it was actual, living people. And this will also reveal to you that certain fighters, whom you may not(I certainly didn't, especially for one of them) have expected to have done their own fighting, actually did. Featured are various interview snippets, with the actors and film-makers describing the process, the training, and the apparently rather talented and helpful stunt coordinator Nick Gillard. One thing that definitely earns him respect is that he prefers to do it for real, without computer enhancing. At about eleven minutes, this is a concise featurette. I recommend this to anyone who enjoyed the movie and wanted to find out how much was real, as well as any fellow fan of the light-saber duels. 7/10
