The 10 best movie fighting scenes are some of the most exciting scenes in all of film. A movie can be remembered for generations based simply on a fight scene. When you are looking for an exciting movie to watch, use the 10 best movie fighting scenes as your guide.

  1. "Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith" (2005). The fight scene between Anakin Skywalker (Hayden Christensen) and Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor) at the end of this movie is one of the epic fight scenes of all time. It is the event that creates Darth Vader and deserves mention as one of the 10 best movie fight scenes of all time.
  2. "Commando" (1985). This is the movie that helped to make Arnold Schwarzenegger into an action star. The fight scene between Arnold and Vernon Wells at the end of the movie is a classic.
  3. "Game of Death" (1978). Martial arts legend Bruce Lee is remembered for many fight scenes, but one of the 10 best movie fighting scenes of all time occurred between Lee and basketball star Kareem Abdul-Jabbar at the end of "Game of Death" (1978). Abdul-Jabbar was a student of Lee's, and the fight scene between the two was epic.
  4. "Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy" (2004). Sometimes a fight scene just needs to make you laugh, and this entry on to the list of the 10 best movie fighting scenes of all time does just that. It is a rumble between gangs of newscasters in suits that includes horses, nets and tridents.
  5. "My Bodyguard" (1980). One of the movies that goes forgotten from the 80's is the movie "My Bodyguard" (1980). The fight scene between the oppressed kid (Chris Makepeace) and the bully (Matt Dillon) was raw and effective.
  6. "Kung Fu Panda" (2008). Animated movies are starting to include some excellent fight scenes, but the best of them all was the scene between Po the Kung Fu Panda and the evil Tai Lung. It is an epic battle that appeals to adults and children.
  7. "Godzilla: Final Wars" (2004). Normally, Godzilla movie battles are between huge mutated monsters. But the entry on the list of 10 best movie fighting scenes of all time from "Godzilla: Final Wars" (2004) is between the human characters Ozaki (Masahiro Matsuoka) and Kazama (Kane Kosugi).
  8. "Rocky" (1976). The fights in the "Rocky" movies will live as some of the best ever filmed. But the classic battle between Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers) and Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone) remains as the best of them all.
  9. "They Live" (1988). The fight scene in "They Live" (1988) between "Rowdy" Roddy Piper and Keith David remains the best kept secret in all of film. This is definitely one of the 10 best movie fighting scenes of all time and it takes place between two characters who are friends.
  10. "The Karate Kid" (1984). Even though it qualifies as one of the high-water marks of 80's movie cheese, the final fight scene between Daniel Larusso (Ralph Macchio) and Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka) is a classic. It made the phrase "sweep the leg" a movie icon.
