Best Movie Fight Scenes


The Top TenXW

1Anakin vs. Obi Wan - Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith

This scene has a lot of passion which proves why it should be ranked with the some of the older Star War movies as the best Star War moments ever. - Bman23

Both the coolest and the best. This wins every time, and it's one of the reasons I like Revenge of the Sith so much.

Yep, defiantly the best fight scene in any movie. - Drewstar

2Jack Sparrow vs James Norrington vs Will Turner - Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest

A three way sword fight on top of a loose water mill wheel?! That's insane.

A three way fight made more famous by a water mill wheel on the loose.

Norrington: Do excuse me while I kill the man that ruined my life.
Turner: Be my guest
Sparrow: Let us examine that claim for a moment former Commodore shall we. Who was it on the very moment you had a notorious pirate safely behind bars, saw fit to free said pirate and take your dearly beloved all to hisself eh? So whose fault is it really that you've ended up a rum pot deckhand what takes orders from pirates?
Norrington: ENOUGH! Unfortunately Mr Turner, HE'S RIGHT! And then the 3 way fight concludes.

4Rocky vs. Apollo Creed - Rocky

One of the best fight scenes ever even though Rocky doesn't win. Gives me goosebumps every time I watch it. - Bman23

5Neo vs. Agent Smith - The Matrix

Neo gets his confidence back and proves to everyone why he is the chosen one. - Bman23

6Sherlock Holmes vs. Lord Blackwood - Sherlock Holmes

This was quite literally a deadly fight. Even more deadly considering the period setting when the Thames Bridge in London was still under construction.

With the fight taking place at the unfinished Thames bridge in London how can this fight not be dangerous? Answer is yes it is as Blackwood discovers. - Bender0

The simplicity of this fight was what made this fight interesting. Who needs fancy dance routine style fights when you can a proper punch up. - Lois

In a Pirates of the Caribbean type sword fight, Robert Downey Jr. Managed to out smart the villainous Mark Strong

The Contenders

11Gandalf vs. Balrog - The Lord of the Rings

I'm kinda surprised how no one really talks about letting Gandalf die in the live action fellowship of the ring. I mean, when he's holding onto the cliff, why is everybody just looking at him? They still have time to save him. Frodo does but Boromir holds onto him while he still has the chance. I guess you could Say that the Orcs are firing at him, but they would still have time to go forward and grab gandalf.

In the book, as well as the 1978 animated movie, when Gandalf is facing the Balrog, and has broke the bridge causing the balrog to fall, the balrog uses it's whip to drag him down with him, causing gandalf to shout "fly, you fools! " as he plunges to his death.

In the 2001 live action movie, he hangs onto the cliff, most likely to make the line (fly you fools) more dramatic.

I just love this scene so much! It looks like something out of a fantasy painting.

Awesome battle scene. it looks like Gandalf is fighting Satan.

"I think you've had enough. No? " Bob... Good times.

Their relationship didn't end very well.

The price is wrong bitch. Haha. - Bman23

17Batman vs Bane - The Dark Knight Rises
18Indiana Jones vs. The Arabian Swordsman - Raiders of the Lost Ark

Just when the swordsman thinks he has beat Indian Jones, Indiana Jones pulls out a gun and shoots him. I got out of my seat when I saw that. - Bman23

The scene itself is pretty funny, but the face that Indy made when he shot the guy was just priceless!
