Here's my top three:
I'll start where my love of swords began. Cheesy, but I still love Highlander.
There's also going to be a Highlander reboot... O. o Ryan Reynolds is supposed to play MacLeod. All that work as Deadpool finally paid off. Obviously.
I didn't really have another sword wielding hero grab me again until Maximus stumped his way onto the screen as a father to a murdered son, husband... Yes, thank you, Maximus. Anyway, I was entertained.
And finally, Perseus from the remake of Clash of the Titans. Have you noticed all these swordsmen are wearing skirts? Complete coincidence...
And yes, Richard Armitage doesn't have a sword, and I only said three...but, you know, he could have a sword...just there, just off the edge of the image... *whistles*
Maybe I should follow up this with Kick-ass Women with Swords, because a few of the images I now have stashed away on my hard drive are simply...wow :D
I've only skimmed the surface of this subject. There's Princess Bride, 300, LOTR and so many others... So who are your favourite men with swords? (With or without skirts :) )
