A Jedi knight's lightsaber has been voted the top movie weapon, pipping Dirty Harry's Magnum .44 to the post in a 20th Century Fox poll of 2,000 film buffs.
The Star Wars illuminated sword heads a mixed bag of offensive items, including the Hattori Hanzo katana from Kill Bill, Oddjob's unfriendly bowler hat* and Indy's bullwhip.
The full roll of honour is:
- Lightsaber (Star Wars)
- 44. Magnum (Dirty Harry)
- Bullwhip (Indiana Jones)
- Samurai sword (Kill Bill)
- Chainsaw (Texas Chainsaw Massacre)
- Golden Gun (The Man With The Golden Gun)
- Bow and arrow (Robin Hood)
- Machine gun (Scarface)
- The Death Star (Star Wars)
- Bowler hat (Goldfinger)
*A collector of Bond memorabilia stumped up a cool $33,600 for the famous hat of death back in 2006, apparently with a view to displaying it in a pop culture museum in Florida. ®
