    Not really the best sword fightings in movies, just some sword fightings from the movies

    The only flaw is including new Indiana Jones and leaving out the classic sword vs. gun scene

    Those that weren`t great were at least very memorable (e.g. Monty Python Black Knight scene, most of the Star Wars scenes). I agree with @canusuck though, the movie "Hero" was pretty awesome.

    Not the "best" sword fights. It should say the most "exciting" sword fights. Now, Scaramouche on the other hand... that is what I call sword fighting.

    Two ingredients for a blockbuster movie:
    Beautiful people and sword fights. Most of these were pretty awesome movies.

    Whatever song accompanied this (I believe it was from the Kill Bill soundtrack?) most definitely deserves to be "the sword fight song".

    I read the title and thought to myself: Oh yay, I really hope Rodrigo Monytoya is in there, ooh and Luke VS Darth...and obviously Kill Bill, Gladiator, LotR, the new Star Wars, PotC, and some Kung Fu ones.

    Best in the sense of dramatic film scenes, maybe, but not in the sense of swordfighting. Some of those were much more dancing than fighting.

    Very good compilation. I would have ended it with Indiana Jones shooting that scimitar wielding guy.

    Those were good, but if you want to see brilliant swordplay, watch Jose Ferrer in Cyrano de Bergerac (1950).

    The scene in the theatre is worthy of this compilation.

    The Star Wars I-III...no.

    Good combination, enjoyed it, pleased to see the blind swordsmen Zatoichi quietly `stumbled` into the mix.
