Default 10 Awesome Fight Scenes

I posted this on Facebook, figured I'd leave it here too!

I love martial arts, and fight scenes, so I thought I'd stick together a list of good scenes for other like-minded people! Sorry if the pictures take a minute to load.
This isn't the 'top 10', and they aren't in any order, but they are all awesome. I chose them all too I didn't pick the list from somewhere else. =)


Jet Li: Fearless
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HRMKMGhwWxo
Li facing off against three opponents in hand-to-hand, spear and sword fights.

Jackie Chan vs Brad Allen
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bQh0gi2E9dg
Manages to be silly, and yet really hardcore at the same time. You need an insane amount of stamina to fight like this.

Tony Jaa: Tom Yum Goong
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a0pUO...eature=related
Jaa fights Lateef Crowder (Capoeira fighter), then Jon Foo (Wushu Fighter), and finally Nathan Jones (massive Wrestler type dude) one after another. Fairly brutal.

Uma Thurman vs Lucy Liu
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oI82yybx7Bc
A beautifully executed sword fight between Black Mamba and O-Ren Ishii. Bit of a gory conclusion.

Ryu vs Fei Long
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9IGBVXLfmm8
Two of the Street Fighter frachise's best fighters beat the hell out of each other. Shotokan Karate vs Hitenry? Kung Fu (a fictional variant of Kung Fu).

Morpheus vs Neo: The Matrix
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j82GKTgVDkw
He knows Kung Fu. Well choreographed and unrealistic Kung Fu. But cool nontheless. =P



Jackie Chan vs Jet Li
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LgM2LTqfByc
Two legends - drunken master vs monk.
<img src=http://twitchfilm.net/news/uploads/Jackie_Chan_vs_Jet_Li.jpg>


Jet Li vs The Twins
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5JOr6GIDSHY
Pretty bloody fight in a small office. Lots of smashing glass.

Tony Jaa: Tom Yum Goong (again)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=59hdGuNGB7A
Tony Jaa shows the Japanese gangsters why they shouldn't have stolen his Elephant.
<img src=http://www.filmofilia.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/07/tonyjaa.jpg>


Bruce Lee vs Chuck Norris
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bqzQ2...eature=related
Yes, the ultimate battle. Bad directing can't detract from the universe imploding collision of the two most badass people to have ever lived! Well, maybe it can, but it's good fun anyway.

I love fight scenes. Glad to see some Uma in there too! Bruce Lee and Chuck is a classic!

I would like to add one to your list, one that I think is one of the best animated fight scenes ever.

Rock Lee vs. Garra: The Power of Youth Explodes!

Rock Lee, a character who cannot do ninjutsu or genjutsu and can only do taijutsu, fights Garra who is one badass badguy.

Through the fight he is having a hard time, until his master tells him to take off his weights that are on his legs. Rock Lee questions his master because he was only supposed to take them off to protect very large groups of important people. His master tells him, its alright and gives him permission. People joke about the weights, because really how much help could rock lee get from taking a few weights off. The weights you see are enchanted and are way heavier than normal weights. When Rock Lee takes them off his can move much easier, so easy that people can barely keep track of his movements. He breaks through Garra's defenses, something noone else has been able to do.

You have to understand, Rock Lee is the underdog because he cannot do ninjutsu or genjuts like everyone else. He cannot do the special abilities like controlling fire or launching balls of Chi into his enemies. All he can do is fight.

Here is a hulu link for you all:

I don't watch naruto much anymore, but when I did, this scene was one of the best.

More fight scenes should begin with the phrase, "Where's my elephant?" ;D

Did you know Naruto does mimic some classic Anime, and old movie styles? The neji Naruto fight had a brief Cowboy Bebop movie rip :P

And whats with all these brand names, there was some ancient kickass by some no names to :P

My personal favorite is from Shadowskills where Ghau fights his sister Ella in the arena. Also when they fight the werewolf toghter and scarface shows up and destroys it doing a few cool moves making them look no where near his level. The orignal series was good like bubble gum till they jacked it up record of the lotis war was good till the remake was really bad.

Recca vs Smiling Budda Flame of Recca
Crying Freeman vs Naked Black Chick with Afro wins by threatening to bite her nipple off crying Freeman movie 3 or 4
Ken vs Raoh from Fist of North star movie.
Grappler Baki vs Cord Cutter from Grappler Baki
Kenshin vs Saito from Reronin Kenshin
Can't remeber move but fight against budda monks that stack up like a pyramid. Kungfu Theater.
Cowboy Be Bop vs the kungfu guy can't remember his name he fights with a sword.
Gutts vs Griffis 1st fight Beserk
Gutts vs Serpent daemon berserk
Gutts and Griffis vs Zodd the immortal Beserk
Gutts vs 100 men Beserk
Dark Snider vs Ninja Master Gara t'auk'cka
Kenshin vs Shi Shi Os right hand man 2nd fight Samarai X
Casshan vs Dio 1st and 2nd fight from Casshan Sins
8 man vs main bad guy in 8 man after
Raiden vs Lucifer angel cop
Terry Bogard vs Keisher from Fatal Fury 2 movie

there are others but I forget names and amines. Besides angel cop it's all some form of martial arts or sword play. But after looking at the recommended anime fight the list above have better fights.

While it's a borderline-dreadful movie in all other respects, the final fight scene of Jackie Chan's Who Am I is epic. One of the guys I've never seen in any other movie, but he's got joints made out of silly putty or something!

I'm really not a fan, as the action scenes are generally either cheesy or quite tame, and there's a lot of CGI. Still if I run out of ideas I'll consider looking for some (I can't recall any awesome fight scenes off the top of my head, although I remember liking Darth Maul).
