This supercut turns cinema's greatest sword fights into one epic duel

New, 23 comments

Ah, the sword fight. What would cinema be without it? The action movie staple is so familiar — and, at times, formulaic — that it seems you could smush them all into one. Video editor Clara Darko has done just that with a nearly four-minute sword fight extravaganza that covers everything from Kill Bill, Star Wars, and Zorro to Seven Samurai and Excalibur. As an editor, putting together montages like these is what Darko does for fun, and the result is a surprisingly coherent — if lengthy — sword fight that spans decades of cinema history.
