Best Duel

Tools    





The Mad Prophet of the Movie Forums
Whats the best duel you've seen in a movie? Could be a traditional duel like that in Barry Lyndon, a sword duel like in Rob Roy, a western duel like in Once Apon a Time in the West, or a new age duel, like at the end of Lethal Weapon (not the best example I know).

The black vomit is not really black; it is speckled liquid of two colors, black and red, a stew of tarry granules mixed with fresh red arterial blood. It is hemorrhage, and it smells like a slaughterhouse. The black vomit is loaded with virus. It is highly infective, lethally hot, a liquid that would scare the daylights out of any military biohazard specialist.
