    amazing compi and cutting action! If I could give a second thumb up, I would. Thx for the hard work.

    but… "greatest" swordfights? no way, not with Blade, Scropion King, Cutthroat Island, Hellboy, etc.etc.etc. etc. in it 😉

    I don't know how you did this…this takes some serious patience. And access to a lot of films. Thanks for listing the films in order!

    Suggestion: Every big cinematic hero (or hero & villain) reveal on screen. Moments like Return of the Jedi, when the lift door opens to reveal Vader & Luke. Reveals by either a dramatic cut, or as we've seen in westerns, lifting the head to reveal the face under the hat. Maybe not. I am actually weary just thinking about it. Whatever is next is gonna be great.

    Many of these are completely awesome, but the one moment of the video that stands out for me is Solomon Kane. THAT. CAPE.

    Great Video, of all the movies, I am guessing I have only seen about a Third of them, and for that I feel Shame. You picked some of my Favorite movies in this. The Count of Monty Cristo, The Princess Bride, Space Balls, Star Wars (all of them), just to name a few.

    great edit bro. Im searching for a 90s movie which has a sword duel scene at the final. It was like Rob Roy movie but the bad guy was wearing a mask. After the duel bad guy was dying and bleeding dramaticly, maybe from his eyes. I only remember this scene. It was maybe in 17th-18th centuries and the dueling guys were wearing masks. Only you can find it bro.

    I cannot believe that, with all those versions of "The Three Musketeers," you did not include the best version — the 1948 one with Gene Kelly.
