Top 10 Most Badass Movie Swordfights (#3 and #2)

We’re counting down the top 10 movie sword fights of all time in conjunction with our first Cutting Edge product give-away.  Comment on this post or any other between today and midnight on Sunday and you’ll be entered to win a 51-inch William Wallace replica sword .

If you are one of the first ten people to comment on any individual post, you’ll get DOUBLE ENTRIES.

3. Crouching Tiger, Hidden DragonYu Shu Lien Vs. Jen

This 2000 epic martial arts film has a number of sword fights worthy for this list, but none tops the scene below that shows these two girls engaging in an acrobatic sword fight.

2. Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back – Darth Vader Vs. Luke Skywalker

Even though they’re not technically swords, lightsabers brought back the popularity of sword fighting and inspired millions (including the famous Star Wars kid) to take up sword fighting. This entire list could have been filled with only Star Wars sword fights, from the scene with Darth Maul to the Yoda and Palpatine fight. But, when it came time to decide, this first duel between Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader from The Empire Strikes Back remains the most iconic.

Tell us which sword fight you like most by commenting below and you’ll be entered to win a 51-inch William Wallace sword.

  1. i want a lightsaber. i’ll gladly join the dark side.

  2. The fight in the Princess Bride.

  3. Two totally epic sword battles. The C.T.H.D one, however, has an edge (no pun intended lol) over the Star Wars battle, I think.

  4. Star wars is awsome 🙂
