Today is all about the brawl for all. When you have to settle someone’s hash. When the King of England comes into your house and starts pushing you around;
Best fight scene.
I have 3 that juggle around the number 1 spot. The multi-floor, one-take fight scene from Tony Jaa’s The Protector. It’s incredible for a fight scene, and even more amazing due to the fact the entire thing was done in one take. No breaks. No cuts. It took them 7 tries to get it right. Great stuff. Another is the final fight from Drunken Master II. Ebert said it may not be possible to film a better fight scene. It needs to be seen to be believed. And the final one is the showdown between Braden & Cho from Revenge of the Ninja, arguably the greatest ninja film of all time. It’s a hell of a fight, and easily the greatest ninja go-at-it in history. Even more so than the golf-hating ninja taking on multiple cops in Ninja III. I loved Revenge of the Ninja as a kid and probably saw it 70+ times. Usually things from your childhood don’t carry over, but Revenge of the Ninja, and the final fight scene, have only gotten better.
How say you?
