Best sword fight.

post #1 of 37
Thread Starter 
In no particular order.

1. Robert Roy McGegor vs. Archibald Cunningham.
So glad this fucker gets it.



2. Luke Skywalker vs. Darth Vader.
They do a great job with what were sticks in handles.



3. Man in Black vs. Inigo Montoya.
"I am not left-handed."



And now three from the greatest swordsman in Hollywood: Basil Rathbone.

4. Robin Hood vs. Guy Gisbourne
Flynn had style but he was limited to three or four beats. Rathbone could do a hundred.



5. Captain Esteban Pasquale vs. Don Diego de la Vega
Power was much better than Flynn and he and Rathbone create a perfect straightforward fight. Swordsmen with real swords.



6. Hubert Hawkins vs. Sir Ravenhurst
Rathbone called Kaye a natural and it shows in this scene from The Court Jester. Rathbone was 63 when they filmed.

I thought "Rob Roy" before clicking on this thread. Good choice.

My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.

Only good thing about the Star Wars prequels. Everything is perfect. Doesn't hurt that the music is fucking epic.


I really like this one because really there aren't enough spears in movies.

^That one from hero looks damn cool in blu ray. I have to say the Rob Roy fight doesn't even make sense at the end. Just pull the sword out of his hand, stupid.

The best sword fights ever put on film are the ones from The Duellists by Ridley Scott. The rapier duel at the start is great, as well as a heavy cavalry sabre duel in a basement later on. Check it out! /C

The Rob Roy one was beyond lame, The Matrix looked pretty choreographed by some uncoordinated actors as well.

Hero was awesome, and so was 5. Captain Esteban Pasquale vs. Don Diego de la Vega

Well if we're throwing in the fantasy fights, then this may be the greatest sword fight of all. 7. Jason vs. skeletons. Long live Ray Harryhausen. 8. King Arthur vs. the Black Knight: "We'll call it a draw"9. Feraud vs. ? (For you, Clark.) lefty

I should have said "most realistic sword fight put on film" perhaps, as the Jason vs. the skeletons is fantastic, especially considering when it was done. /C
