  9. Model Answer Writing If I were to make a movie with sword fighting, I would make it during Medieval England. This is when they had knights. The knights wore armor and used swords. When I watch a movie with knights in it, they would always win against the evil villains. The evil villain would always take a beautiful maiden (woman) for his prisoner. He would keep her in his castle. The knight would ride up on his horse. Then, he would have a sword fight with the evil villain. The sword fight would last a long time in the movie. But of course, the knight would always kill the evil villain and rescue the maiden. Then, they would live happily ever after. The name of my movie would be “Good Knight, Forever”. I would use great actors in my movie. First,I would use Kevin Costner for the knight. He was so good in Robin Hood. Also, he is very handsome. Then, I would use Drew Barrymore for the beautiful maiden. Last, I would use an English actor, Rufus Sewell, for the villain. So, if I were to make a movie, it would be made during Medieval England. I would have lots of sword fighting and good actors in it.
