Sure wizards duels are cool, but let us set Harry Potter aside for a moment, and look at some of the awesome-st combat scenes in fantasy movies that pumps up your adrenaline.
1. Pirates of Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest
Will Turner vs. Captain Jack Sparrow vs. Commodore Norrington : Over the the ruins, perching on the edges, rolling over the wheel, inside the wheel- the fight for the Dead Man’s Chest is probably the most entertaining fight scene you’ll see in your life time. It is not just the technique but also the style of the sword play, that leaves you gaping till the end. To add cherry to the topping Pintel and Raggetti with Elizabeth Swann bring laughter amidst the ‘oohs’ and ‘aahs.’
There is no need to say it out loud, but Neo’s slow-motion-bullet-dodging scene could be the most imitated fighting scene move in history. I bet you’ve thought you can do that in real life, haven’t you?
3.Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith
Anakin Skywalker fighting his Jedi master Obi Wan Kenobi while surrounded by a sea of lava. The clash of the light sabers and the Jedi acrobatics are truly unforgettable. A non Star Wars fan may disagree, but no weapon is more suited for a combat scene than a light saber.
4. The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian
You might think that the Chronicles of Narnia movies are for kids, and I cannot say I disagree, but the sword fight between Peter and King Miraz is a must watch for any one who loves an onscreen duel. It is the sort of combat that takes one back to the Medieval days.
5. The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn
Alright don’t gag seeing the name of the movie, but the fight with the Volturi was honestly the best scene of the series. In addition to providing an interesting twist from the book’s original plot, the supernatural battle scene with werewolves and vampires is one of the coolest we have seen in the last one year.
