Top Ten Movie Sword Fights (Not a Repeat)

Sporting News - Your expert source for MLB Baseball, NFL Football, NBA Basketball, NHL Hockey, NCAA Football, NCAA Basketball and Fantasy Sports scores, blogs, and articles: "This particular list came to mind when I was flipping through my HD channels and came across one of my favorite all-time movies, The Princess Bride. I caught up to the movie right when Inigo Montoya begin his awesome sword fight with The Dread Pirate Roberts.

So it got me thinking: What are the other great movie sword fights?"

I don't know if these qualify as great sword fights, but a couple of years ago I had occasion to see some of the Zatoichi: The Blind Swordsmen movies, which had flying Katanas all over the place. The only thing was that the fights were almost inevitably one sided as Zatoichi dispatching his foes without so much as a knick on his blade from where the other guy had actually had the time to hit it. I suspect that the Daredevil comic books owe - or should owe - a debt to the Zatoichi movies for being a big influence in the blind martial artist genre.
