10 Best Swordfighters in Cinema

Nerd Bastards has their list:
1)Darth Maul
2)The Bride-Kill Bill 1 and 2
3)Aragorn- Fellowship
4)Count of Monte Christo (2002)
5) Achilles- Troy
6) MadMartigan- Willow
7) Wesley- The Princess Bride
8) Maximus- Gladiator
9) Prince Nuada- Hellboy 2
10) 13th Warrior

I am shocked to see no mention of Zorro! Not one! And no Errol Flynn? I told The Younger Son about this list, and he wrote up one of his own before looking at it. His list (in no particular order):
Zorro (Tyrone Power)
the cast of The Seven Samurai
The Bride (Kill Bill)
Darth Vader
Keith Carradine (The Duellists)
River Tam (Serenity)
Rochefort (Christopher Lee)
King Leonidas (300)
Rob Roy (Liam Neeson)
Chow Yun Fat (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon)

    Tony Jaa in Ong Bak II should be in the running....

  2. I'm not familiar with that one. I'll ask The Younger Son. Thanks.

  3. He says he's heard that movie is really good but that he hasn't seen it. We'll be on the look-out for it.

  4. I loved the movie "The 13th Warrior" but Antonio's Arab was no amazing swordsman. He was struggling to learn how to wield a sword!
