The 10 Best Movie Showdowns

By November 19, 2014Top 10 Lists

Just like the Electric Light Orchestra song, “Showdown” these people were also headed for a showdown. This Top 10 list may alternately be titled, “Top 10 best climaxes,” as showdowns are really just epic confrontations.

In every film on the list, the stakes were high, whether they be for one person, or for civilization as a whole, and most, if not all, depict the hero’s swan song, as they come to blows with their antagonist.

That said, if this were at Top 11 list, Kingpin (1996) would start us off, just for Bill Murray’s hair.
