It varies. Sometimes an elaborate action sequence will be described in painstaking detail; other times it will be more like "she kicks their butts with lightning-like moves."
One of my favorite quotes from Ian McKellen's annotated screen play for Richard III is when he describing how they were tying to figure out how to stage the final fight from his vague script and he added:

To be sure, Shakespeare is not much more helpful:

"Alarum: excursions. Forces fighting. Alarum. Enter Richard with Richmond; They fight; Richard is slain."
