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
Enter the Dragon
Best of the Best
YES Jet Li in Fist of Legend! every fight from tom yung goong was incredible. including the pagoda sequence.

Â 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.
You said you were gonna do it…Â you’re a man of your word.Â Great post!
@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.
Â @kooda hehe yah man, it was great catching up with you this week. glad we all share good taste in martial arts movies. 🙂
The fight scene in Drunken Master 2 is my favourite fight scene of all time.Â 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 wellÂ There’s more information about that here: http://entertainmentgecko.blogspot.com/2010/02/finest-martial-arts-fight-ever-filmed.html

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.
