The 13 Best Movie Swordfights

13. Jason and the Argonauts. Dude. They are fighting skeletons. From back before Army of Darkness.

12. The Court Jester. Silly, but kinda fun.

11. Although more people might think of the Adventures of Robin Hood, I like the fight in Captain Blood (even more Basil Rathbone!)

10. The Mark of Zorro (The Table!)

(Now with Bonus Zorro! (Can't find a video clip of the Power/Rathbone version))

9. The Scarlet Pimpernel

8. The Count of Monte Cristo

7. Kill Bill (partial clip)

6. Rob Roy

5. Pirates of the Caribbean. I do also love the multiple adversaries fight on the beach and wheel in the second film.

4. Holy Grail. I said best.


2. Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon

1. The Princess Bride. Obviously.
