Watch: Sword Fights from SEVEN SAMURAI to KILL BILL to STAR WARS, and Onward…

Admit it. You love a good sword fight in a film. Admittedly, you may not have seen a good sword fight in a film in a while, given that recent movies have more of a preference for gunplay, but… There’s something unusually nerve-wracking about watching sword fights, be it the revenge matches in the Kill Bill films, the sizzling smash of light sabers in The Empire Strikes Back, or the timeless deftness of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. Maybe it’s the alternation of vigorous movement with near-frozen, tense stares? Or perhaps it’s the knowledge that such combat requires more dexterity than most of us could muster on a regular day–and so the swordplay is a reminder that we are, in fact watching a movie? Whatever the case, this (literally) breathtaking piece by Clara Darko will transport you: enjoy!
