Number 2: Rey and Kylo-Ren Vs. the Praetorian Guards – The Last Jedi
A brand new entry into the list of lightsaber battles that has already made a massive impact is the duel between the Praetorian Guards versus Rey and Kylo-Ren. To start it is so visually stunning. The use of the deep red, which happens to be a huge theme in Episode VIII: The Last Jedi, adds an intense backdrop to give a very picturesque look to the whole sequence. Then there is the intricate choreography. Every movement has a purpose and draws your eyes from one side of the screen to the other. Finally, the context of the whole scene is so gut wrenching to find out if this momentary alliance will stick or not. And let’s not forget the fact that Rey is one badass woman wielding a lightsaber! It’s marriage of beauty, emotion and badassery is what makes this duel our Number 2 pick.
