Greatest Movie Fights of All-Time

Recommended Posts

This thread could have ended where it started. Opening with They Live is a total premature mic-drop.

I thought that was the dumbest thing I have ever seen. And I've seen the first Transformers movie...

Can't think of a best fistfight.

Ok, I'm pretty sure that's totally grounds for a forum ban.

This list loses points for having The Matrix at #2 and not including The Killer and Hard Boiled.

Any fight scene from scott pilgrim or the rooftop fight from Jackie Chan's who am I. I love the fact that they took a break from kicking each other's shins to sooth their ouchies in who am I.

Surprised no one shared any of the following:

Flashpoint: Donnie Yen vs Yu Xing & vs Tony Collin Chou (2007)

Saat Po Long (aka Kill Zone): Donnie Yen vs. Jacky Wu Jing (2005)

Tom Yum Goong (aka Protector): Tony Jaa vs. Nathan Jones (2005)

Tiger Cage II: Donnie Yen's impressive legwork vs Michael Woods (1990)
https://youtu.be/XhT_iNYPCX4

Not claiming any of these are the greatest fight scenes, but they are certainly worth being recognized. Others have already recognized Scott Adkins as Yuri Boyka and Tony Jaa from Ong Bak. Anyone else have more to share? :)

Chocolate (2008)

Starring Jeeja Yanin, this movie is a spiritual successor (and even includes scenes from) Ong Bak, and advertised the leading actress as the "female Tony Jaa." The movie itself centers around an autistic girl who is born to parents from rival Thai and Japanese crime syndicates (a Romeo and Juliet-style story), and has a savant talent for any physical activity that she sees, including the Muay Thai gym down the block and Bruce Lee/Tony Jaa films. When her mother develops cancer and cannot afford medical treatment, she finds her mother's syndicate debt book, and goes on a quest trying to collect the money, which draws her into the world her parents tried to shelter her from.

This is one of the better fight scenes from the film, but not the final/best one so as to avoid spoilers for those who haven't seen it yet.

Warrior (2011)

Starring Joel Edgerton and Tom Hardy, this film is a powerful sports drama in the vein of the Rocky series, and features some incredible fight scenes and choreographed Mixed Martial Arts. The story involves two estranged brothers and a father with prior sports/fighting backgrounds, who each for their own reasons return to the ring and get set on a collision course to reconciliation through a high-profile MMA tournament. The fight scenes are fantastic and realistic (speaking from experience as one who trains in it), but what makes them really shine is the heart and writing behind them - no fight is in this film for its own sake; every one has emotion and purpose, and is relevant to the story.

As above, this is one of the earlier fight scenes in the film, but is by no means dull, and the fights only get longer/better from there.
