Your favorite sword fights in movies?
« on: June 20, 2014, 05:03:03 AM »
Self-explanatory in the title. What are your favorite movie sword fights? Much as people dogged SW:TPM, I loved it. Way more than Episode II, at any rate. I thought this fight was well choreographed. And who the hell didn't drop their jaw at Darth Maul's wicked weapon in the movie theater? Ewan's emotion was perfect along with Liam's overall badassery.

Speaking of which... epic Liam Neeson backhand at 1:29  ;D

That is one of the few good scenes in that movie. I remember learning all the moves with my friends and fighting one another with sticks.

This is one of my favourite sword fighing scenes. It's both beautiful and absurd!

Yu Shu Lien vs Jiao Long, from Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. First real Wushu sword fight I've ever seen and so far the best...

Deamonbane already got the first one that came to mind for me.  If polearms are allowed to play too, I'm a big fan of the first fight from The Legend of Drunken Master:



Or there's the ending battle in Legendary Weapons of China:



On an entirely different note, the duel at the end of Rob Roy:



Or pretty much take your pick from The Duellists.
