top 10 movie sword fights – #7: jedi knights vs. darth maul


Well it was inevitable… when you have six movies in a franchise, it isn’t out of the question to have a few duplicates in the picks. Especially when the franchise’s weapon of choice is a “lightsaber”. So, Star Wars returns to the list, only this time from The Phantom Menace. The seventh best sword fight is actually a double fight in the same sequence.

Admittedly, considering the Maul et. al. fight a “sword fight” is a decided grey area (since the obvious Princeton fan with the horns fights with a weapon eerily reminiscent of a the Kung-Fu Hustle bamboo stick). But you get the idea.

Plus, the finishing blow is a two-for-one deal.
