top 10 movie sword fights – #1: inigo vs. westley


He is Inigo Montoya, you killed his father, prepare to die.

From the dialogue … to the intentional hilarity … to the perfect choreography … to the honor … to the flimsy plastic swords that shimmy during battle …

It all adds up to the perfect movie sword fight. Courtesy of 1987’s The Princess Bride.

[also, Robin Wright-(before-Penn) was hot in 1987 … and any movie that puts Andre the Giant in a speaking role gets bonus points]

Inigo Montoya vs. Westley… very nice.
