Best Movie Fight Scenes


The Top Ten

1 Anakin 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

The most epic fight scene of all time, though a bit over-coreographed. - MetalPope

2 Jack 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.

A three way fight for the key to Davy Jone's locker.

3 Rocky 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

4 Neo vs. Agent Smith - The Matrix

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


5 Sherlock 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

Mortal Combat has nothing on this all out brawl on top of the unfinished Thames Bridge.

17 Batman vs Bane - The Dark Knight Rises
18 Optimus Prime vs Megatron-Transformers
19 Mace Windu vs. Darth Sidious - Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith
20 Happy vs. Bob Barker - Happy Gilmore

I'll never get past this. It was SO funny. Couldn't stop laughing.

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

Their relationship didn't end very well.

The price is wrong bitch. Haha. - Bman23

21 Hulk vs. Mutant Dogs - Hulk
22 Arthur vs. Projections - Inception

This whole film is one of the most epic of all time. The rotating gravitational forces were amazing. - Virtuoso

The rotating hallway and lack of gravity made this fight amazing! - LaurenLauren

23 Indiana 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!

24 Daniel vs Johnny - Karate Kid
25 Obi-Wan Kenobi Vs. General Grievous - Revenge of the Sith
26 The Bride vs. Gogo - Kill Bill vol. 1

29 Luke Skywalker vs. Darth Vader - Star Wars: Return of the Jedi

A movie ahead of its time.

Great fight. the last fight between the two before darth turns into a good guy. great music and grat fight. I like it when luke lets out his rage and chops vaders arm off. great fight from start to finish. I love how the emperor dies.

30 Achilles vs Hector - Troy

Just a really tense, technical scene. Great choreography and sound design. The movie itself may not have been great, but this scene deserves far more recognition than it gets here.

How aren't there more votes here? The movie has some awesome amazing fight scenes but gotta give it up for these two although I wanted Hector to win it was still a great battle #TROY

the fluidity by which brad pitt swings the sword is awesome.. - hilal

Best fight scene hands down

31 Kong vs. Skull Devil - Kong: Skull Island
32 Wolverine vs Mystique - X-Men
33 Ashley Williams vs. His right hand - Evil Dead 2

It's hilarious to see how his hand is beating the crap out of him. Then the guy gets a chain saw and cuts his hand off. I never saw this movie, but I saw this scene on youtube, and it was AWSOME. - Bman23

A man versus his own hand.

no more can be said.

34 Sherlock Holmes vs. Prof. James Moriarty - Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows
35 Battle of Hogwarts - Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2

You voters are all IDIOTS if this is down here - Mehraj118

Cri... Snape... WHY DID U HAVE TO DIE ;-; - Page_394

36 Battle of New York - The Avengers
37 Tang Long vs. Colt - Way of the Dragon
38 The Bride vs. The Crazy 88 - Kill Bill Vol. 1
39 Liu Kang vs Shang Tsung - Mortal Kombat
40 Team Captain America vs. Team Iron - Man (Captain America: Civil War)
41 Gandalf 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.
