Gallery: 9 Amazing Cinematic Sword Fights

We Got This Covered takes a look at 9 awesome, fascinating, or just plain epic cinematic swordfights.

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon has any number of excellent fight sequences. For my money, though, the fight between Yu Shu Lien (Michelle Yeoh) and Jen Lu (Zhang Ziyi) is right at the top. The speed and dexterity of the pair makes this fight exhilarating to watch. With the rumbling drums emphasizing their battle and some amazing camerawork bringing us close to the action without losing sight of the technical abilities of the combatants, this fight between two masters is both epic and personal in scope. You can legitimately feel the adrenaline in this one.
