Sword fighting takes incredible physical strength and mental strength. Plus somebody usually loses – spectacularly. So it’s no wonder why they have long been a favorite in cinema. There are many factors that go into what makes a good sword fight, artistry, banter, comedy, etc. Basically, it’s not always just the quality of the actual sword fight, but the entire entertainment value of the spectacle. So here are five sword fighting scenes that I personally like. This isn’t a best of list, it’s not in any particular order. I find that to be an impossible task in any form. How many times have you lamented over the task of creating a best of list. You think you have it all worked out, and then someone reminds you of a song, movie, scene that you didn’t remember at it’s back to the drawing board. Long story short, this is just a list of my five favorites, in no particular order.
Rob Roy – Final Duel
The Princess Bride – Inigo Montoya and the Dread Pirate Roberts
Monty Python’s the Search For the Holy Grail – The Dark Night
Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon
