    Wallace's men were hardly the barbarian horde of the film. They were a disciplined force of spearmen.

    As far as WMA movies go the cheesy Ring of Steel about fencing is kinda cool.

    Paradise Alley about prowrestling when it was real is kinda cool.

    Far and Away has a significant bareknuckle boxing element.

    Gangs of New York has a Irish club fighting and Western rough and tumble.

    Ouch:

    Barry Lyndon had bareknuckle boxing and fencing elements.

    And there's actually a movie called Catch as Catch can from the 1930's. Huh. Anyone seen it?

    if you have netflix there's a documentary on it called "reclaiming the blade" you should probably all watch if you haven't already. You can watch it on On Demand.
    There's no choice but to confront you, to engage you, to erase you. I've gone to great lengths to expand my threshold of pain. I will use my mistakes against you. There's no other choice.

    Bronson's Hard Times is a great film about Bare Knuckle.

    For swordfighting, I would recommend both "Princess Bride" and "The Mission". Both have accurate Castilian style rapier fencing. Both movies only have 1 good sword fight, but are worth watching. Also, consider films with Erol Flynn and Basil Rathbone-both were classically trained fencers.
    For boxing and wrestling, I agree with both Hard Times and Paradise Alley. Also, I would recommend "Girl Fight"-the boxing and training scenes are good(unlike that other one with the horse faced girl). I think "Snatch" is pretty good and the final bare knuckle match is good(even with the dramatics).

    The Montoya/Westley sword fight in "Princess Bride" is a great example of the classic 1930s/40s Hollywood fencing style, performed with verve and imaginatively choreographed, but it isn't "accurate Castilian style rapier fencing" other than accidentally.

    OTOH, The Princess Bride fight was choreographed by Bob Anderson, one of the last and greatest of the Old School Hollywood sword choreographers. (Which explains why it looks like a 30's/40's Old School sword fight sequence.)

    Mr. Anderson can be seen on film in the first fight (the parking garage scene) in the movie The Highlander as Connor MacLeod's opponent. He choreographed that movie's fights as well.

    [Sadly, not the whole fight...]

    YouTube - Highlander - MacLeod versus Fasil

    Incidentally, there's word that the Highlander franchise is going to be re-booted. Which is somewhat sad news for those of us who appreciate a little originality, but could be great news if they choose to showcase more realistic sword techniques and various martial arts styles.
