The Best Sword-Fights in Movie History

Scenes of swordplay have been entertaining filmgoers since long before the days of the nickelodeon. Old sword fighting movies were bloodless dance routines and could hardly be described as "fights." They were the martial equivalent of sitcom couples in separate beds. The best swordfighting movies only began to emerge in the past three decades as audiences craved more violence.
As movie audiences grew more sophisticated, they craved more from their fight sequences. They needed to see the brutal reality of mortal combat, and movies with swords were just one way Hollywood satisfied this need. This sword fighting movies list promises to point you in the direction of such films - good sword fighting movies that depict skill, violence, and real action..
