Best action sequences from fantasy movies

**Bonus points if it’s from a movie filled with vast stretches of unwatchable dreck.

I wrote “action” rather than “battle” or “fight” because, of my first three nominations, one involves no fisticuffs whatsoever. Fantasy includes science fiction, comic book, monster, and horror movies as well as the likes of LoTR and Harry Potter:

  1. With the help of a falling airliner, Superman demonstrates that Isaac Newton is his bitch, from Superman Ret**urns.

  2. King Kong explains to to a dinosaur why he really should remove all blondes from his diet, from the 2005 King Kong.

  3. LeeLoo fights to the sound of the Diva’s singing, from The Fifth Element.

The orc-fighting sequence at the end of The Fellowship of the Ring. Watching Aragorn, Gimli and Legolas fighting in the ruin, and then just seeing the trail of dead bodies behind Boromir…

Say what you will about the Star Wars prequels, the two-on-one duel between Qui-Gon, Obi-Wan and Darth Maul was pretty awesome, and the final duel between Obi-Wan and Anakin was pretty close to exactly what I’d been waiting to see since Darth Vader said, “The last time we met, I was but the learner; now I am the master.”

I loves me a good sword fight :smiley:
