Best Fight Scenes

I was talking to some coworkers the other day about the best fight scenes ever… and a couple of them came to mind. While there may be more other fight scenes that should be listed here, these were the ones that immediately popped in my head. These were the fight scenes that inspired me to do martial arts.

Drunken Master 2

Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon

Fist of Legend

Ong Bak

Enter the Dragon

Ip Man

Rocky 4

Kill Bill

Best of the Best

    •  honorable mentions : jean claude van damme at the end of lionheart, jet li at the end of kiss of the dragon, and goldberg vs the big show…i know its wrestling but it’s still one of the best fights ive ever seen.

  2. @wings dude those are legendary. yah, i remember all those fights. i miss a lot of the old school fight scenes… now-a-days everything is all about special effects and super-choreography. they can make guys look jason stratham look like a rock star. even scarlett johansson had a sweet fight scene in iron man 2.

  3. The fight scene in Drunken Master 2 is my favourite fight scene of all time.  I like the subtle references to the Eight Drunken Immortals. For example, when Jackie rolls Ken Lo’s head around his arms, that’s a reference to Zhongli Quan, usually depicted holding a wine barrel in classic Chinese literature. The other Immortals appear in the fight as well  There’s more information about that here: http://entertainmentgecko.blogspot.com/2010/02/finest-martial-arts-fight-ever-filmed.html

  5. Environmental scientists say the dispersants, which can cause genetic
    mutations and cancer, add to the toxicity of the spill and that sea
    turtles and bluefin tuna are exposed to an even greater risk than crude
    alone.

  6. Should some bacteria survive a chemical attack, they give rise to new
    generations composed completely of bacteria that have resistance to the
    particular chemical used. Under a sustained chemical attack, the
    surviving bacteria in successive generations are increasingly resistant
    to the chemical used, and ultimately the chemical is rendered
    ineffective. For this reason, some question the wisdom of impregnating
    cloths, cutting boards and worktops in the home with bactericidal chemicals.
