It didn't say this exactly in the content, but Grievous's organic organs (what were left of them) were also injured when his chest was crushed, so he wouldn't have been as strong. (unless that gif is from after he was injured then in that case they messed up)

I was talking about how the "badass" of the prequels, who managed to kill a Jedi Master and almost kill a powerful Padawan... just switches his brain to "Off" and stands there and looks at Obi-Wan how he propels himself in the air, over him, RIGHT IN BLADE REACH, gets behind him so he just spins after him.

Yes, because the main antagonist of the film suddenly has a brain fart. And then you decide to make a reference to that move in the 3rd film, in which allegedly "Obi-Wan learned from Maul's mistake", since Vader tries to do the same thing Obi-Wan did.

It's pathetic, really. Would have been MUCH better if (as I initially thought it would happen when I was a kid and saw Ep.I for the first time in cinema) Obi-Wan managed to activate the blade while it was still flying from Qui-Gon's body and impale Maul from behind.
Now THAT would have taken in by surprise and would have been very legit.

I did not heard, I have read.

And he is not a badass, even less so than a Sith. I'm sorry, but henchmen VERY rarely are badasses. And Maul was mostly a mindless henchmen.

As for being a Sith?! Bitch please, he didn't even ever THOUGHT of betraying Sidious and taking his role. That's because Sidious didn't teach him ANYTHING about being a Stih, other than using his hate as power.

In that regard, Grevious is a better character. A Jedi killer to the bone, with extremely ferocious skills. However, WITHOUT being called an "apprentice".

Mauls could have easily been a much more interesting character. But alas, Lucas...

Missed some good facts. First of all Grievous actually refused to join the CIS Grievous felt disgust at the notion of being a glorified leg-breaker for a soulless megacorporation during the battle of Geonosis, (you can also see his ship getting shot down in Republic commandos) so Dooku had his starship rigged with the ion bomb. When they rescued him from the wreckage they actually put neural implants in his mind to arrange Grievous' permanent servitude.

Also the same droids and techniques used to rebuild Grievous would later be used to apply Darth Vader's cybernetic suit.

an excerpt from the Episode 3 book, which does a great job on delving into Grievous.
"He has never constructed a lightsaber. He has never bought one, nor has he recovered one that was lost. Each and all, he has taken from the hands of Jedi he has killed. Personally...
...these are murders he recalls with such pleasure that touching these souvenirs with his hands of armorplast and durasteel brings him something resembling joy.
But only resembling.
He remembers Joy. He remembers anger, and frustration. He remembers grief and sorrow. He doesn't actually feel any of them. Not anymore. he;s not designed for it."

You're correct I did some research and it turns out that was a noncanon event

His story is tragic, basically General grievous was the leader of his people who had been in a LONG war between a highly advanced blue bug race called the Huk who had tried to keep Grievous races a slaves. Grievous was such a brilliant tactician that they quickly overcame the Huk, who went running to the Jedi Council for aid. Who beat back Grievous and placed debt crippling embargos on his world.

The Banking clan came to Grievous offering to take care of his planets debt in trade for having Grievous become there head of their private army. Soon, however, Grievous learned that the Huk had vandalized sacred Kaleesh burial grounds on the colony worlds, and that the Republic had done nothing. This news reawakened his desire to act directly in defense of his people, so he abandoned his contract with the Banking Clan and returned to Kalee to avenge the desecration.

On Kalee, Grievous and his Izvoshra (his best friends and elite soldiers) boarded his troop shuttle, Martyr. They set off to resume the Huk War, unaware that Dooku, Hill, and Poggle had planted an ion bomb aboard, and rigged Grievous' pilot seat to enable remote-guided ejection. The resulting explosion sent the Martyr plunging into the Jenuwaa Sea. Dooku's remote command ejected Grievous from the wreck at the last moment, but all his Izvoshra perished in the crash.

General Grievous is a race of warrior people. They are called Kaleesh. They are mostly known for fightning to gain prestige and honor. In some cases. Many Kaleesh could become someones bodyguards. If you had something special to their people. Like ancient tablets from their homeworld.

Due to their culture stating that. But they are a tough people. They live up to being a warrior people. And again. If they feel like killing you will bring great honor and prestige. They will definitely try to kill you. Heck they will never turn down a challenge. They are also oddly loyal if defeated. Or with the case of ancient tablets thats sacred to them.

yep
"Grievous had suffered near-fatal injuries, rendering the body that had survived many battles useless, or so he was told. Planted evidence pointed to a Republic plot. In truth, Grievous once again proved his resilience, and additional injuries had to be added after the crash to make his body as broken as was claimed."

WHich book exactly? I have played the games, read all the books I could find, etc. Everything I have read suggested he was more powerful than ever. They even ripped off his pulling a starcruiser out of the sky and used it in Jedi:Force Unleashed for Starkiller.

"Star Wars Revenge of the Sith" by Matthew Stover


His novelization of REVENGE OF THE SITH, developed to become one of the best, if not THE best, novels I've ever read. Again, I realize how silly that might sound: that a novelization of a Star Wars movie could accomplish such a thing. But I couldn't be more sure of it, because this novel is more than a mere interpretation of a screenplay, it serves the core-story to an extent that if I had read this book before seeing Episode III for the first time, I probably would have felt cheated by the amount of content that had all but disappeared in translation.

I am a huge advocate of having people read it.

Than I shall read it. Pardon my not having done so. There are literally thousands of novels of the Star Wars universe, I try, but they keep multiplying.

Oh no it's easy to have over looked it. Especially with how a lot of Episode 3 came out. I know that the book wouldn't be considered very well done.

If you do get a chance to read let me know what you think!

eh, certain force abilities could not be performed by him, he can/could never use Sith Lightning due to his robot hands. So debatably, he was in fact weaker in every way, which still is a lot however, ya know, the whole "strongest force user in the galaxy" sorta deal.

to be fair, until luke and obi-wan showed up he never really would've faced anybody that he would need anywhere close to his full power to defeat. well except starkiller i guess but ya know, its ************************ soo yeah.

One of Grievous' victoms was a Padawan by the name of Sha'a Gi, who is a reference to Scooby Doo.

I enjoyed the effects and fights, not so much the plot. But there's far worse sci-fi films.

He was great in the Extended Universe stuff, but he was the ultimate scrub in Episode 3. I just rewatched his fight with Obi-Wan and it was even worse than I imagined. He has Obi-Wan surrounded by like 50 droids. He says "kill him", apparently to only the 5 droids directly in front of him that don't use guns, who get destroyed instantly. Then he says "leave him to me" and has the 45 other droids with guns stand down so he can fight him. And by "fight him" I mean "Flail his light sabers about until he gets two of his hands chopped off", at which point he runs away like a crab for some reason. Then when they start fighting again he just stands there while Obi-Wan pries open his chest thing and then gets shot in said chest thing and killed. All along he didn't think it was a good idea to shoot Obi-Wan; who was obviously perfectly willing to shoot him. **** George Lucas.

Did you even read the comp, or have you even seen the old animated clone wars, Mace Windu crushes his chest plate and organs literally right before episode 3 takes place, as they kidnap Senator Palpatine and take him to the ship that Anakin and Obiwan rescue him from at the start of episode 3.

One thing that set Obi Wan apart from many of the other Jedi was his ability to calm himself and let the Force dictate his actions rather than the other way around, if you can achieve that you can maintain that kind of concentration and trust in it, you can win most any fight. Two force using opponents with that same level of concentration win over the other when the other one loses concentration, so it ends up being a test of spiritual endurance. Grievous has almost no connection to the force, so he would inevitably be the loser in that confrontation. He also had less mobility because of Windu crushing his chest, so his fighting chops wouldn't be as brutal anyway. As far as the whole guns thing, Obi Wan would have been able to deflect everything thrown at him because of his connection to the force I mentioned above.

you forgot that instead of shooting him he tried to break his spine and tried to strangle him, thus holding him to close to his chest, that Kenobi opened, and instead if breaking his neck he screamed like a bitch and threw him next to a blaster... yea, maybe if he was introduced in attack of the clones it could have been better portrayed on his character, instead we get a 15 minute cut scene that ended with him being killed in a really stupid way.

I can only imagine watching Episode III as someone who has just seen the movies:   
   
"Who is this guy? Why does he have four arms? Why is he always coughing? He has 4 lightsabers? Is he a Jedi?"   
   
Then there are people who watched the Clone Wars cartoon and knew him as a badass   
   
"Who is this guy? Grievous was badass, this guy is a coughing pussy who gets killed in a ridiculous manner. Where is the badass from the EU?"   
   
George Lucas was dumb as **** putting Grievous in Ep. III

as someone who has only watched the movies, you captured my thoughts exactly. In fact, this whole time I assumed that the guy must have been introduced in the movie for Episode II (since that is the only one I still haven't seen entirely)

I'm talking about primary source. The average person didn't read the pre comic. The average person saw the film where Grievous is just kinda there.

well yeah...it would have taken away from the plot had george given him a backstory during episode 3...remember episode 3 was all about anakin's fall to the dark side and the birth of the skywalker twins.

Yeah, that's why I think it was a dumb move to:

A. Kill Dooku (the already established villain) off in the first few minutes of the movie
B. Pull this "General Grievous" guy out of his ass as a cheap antagonist

Dooku was never meant to be the main bad guy, nor was grievous, Palpatine was always intended to screw every one over in one of the most dickish moves in the history of cinema...honestly, Dooku and Grievous were just pawns in the grand scheme of things...
