Top 5 Fight Scenes

So here are what I think are the Top 5 best fight scenes from movies. There is probably going to be a lot who don't agree, or don't agree with the order, but my list. Here we go.

1) Star Wars Episode 3: Revenge of the Sith - Anakin Skywalkwer vs Obi Wan Kenobi

This one did it for me. The light saber battle to end all battles. It went on for like a half an hour and blew me away. The move that these guys were doing was awesome and the intensity behind it was fantastic. Probably not every ones #1, but I don't care. This fight scene was unbelievable.

2) The Matrix - Neo vs Agent Smith

This one rocked! An epic battle with all styles of Kung Fu that blew people away when they first saw it. This one set a whole new standard on fight scenes for future movies. Just awesome!

3) Kill Bill: vol 1 - Uma Thurman vs The Crazy 88

It's one chick with a sword taking on 88 guys with swords. You can't tell me that this fight scene isn't legendary. She takes them all out, and then goes and has another fight with Lucy Liu. Awesome!

4) They Live - "Rowdy" Roddy Piper vs Keith David

All Roddy Piper wanted was for Keith David to put on the sunglasses and he didn't want too. This scene is soooooo good! It was even imitated exactly on a episode of Southpark. This fight scene should be on everyones list! Just gritty, 80's punches that make fights so good.

5) Raider's of the Lost Ark - Indiana Jones vs the Arabian Swordsman

Indiana is taking on guys left to right. All of a sudden, the crowd parts, there's this huge guy with a sword doing all this fancy sword work. So what does Indy do? Pulls out his gun and shoots him. Classic!

So there it is, what I think are the Top5 best fight scenes. Let me know what ya think! Here are some awesome fights but didn't make the list.

Honorable Mentions -

The Matrix - Neo vs Morpheus

The Princess Bride - Inigo Montoya vs the Man in Black

Here are some others to think about (in no order):

Star Wars Episode 5- Luke Skywalker vs. Darth Vader: Luke gets his hand cut off and learns that his worst enemy is his dad. What a bad day!

Happy Gilmore- Happy vs. Bob Barker: The Price is WRONG Bob!

Anchorman- The News Team vs. The Other News Team: I think I killed a man with a Triton. Yeah, where'd that thing come from?!

Fight Club- Edward Norton vs. Himself: Who is Tyler Derden?

The Bourne Identity- Jason Bourne kills someone with a pen. All these movies have nasty fight scenes!

Snatch- I'll fightcha forit

Any X-Men movie has great fight scenes

Bruce Lee vs. Anyone
