James Bond vs. Grant: From Russia with Love

This is arguably the best fight scene of the entire James Bond franchise; even today it’s pretty brutal with these two men literally tearing strips off each other. No flashy judo or martial arts, just a desperate struggle for survival.

From the You Tube Page: In this scene, Bond finally faces off against SPECTRE agent Red Grant. It’s dirty, gritty and best of all, in a tight quarter. Played frighteningly by Robert Shaw (Quint from “Jaws”), this agent from SPECTRE has the total drop on Bond at the start of this scene. But the tables quickly get turned thanks to a very special suitcase Bond has at his disposal and what transpires is one of the greatest fights in motion picture history.

Death Wish 2: Do You Believe in Jesus?

Death Wish 2 is easily the most brutal in the series and that rape scene was always horrific to watch; I’ll be honest and say I usually fast forward that part. This scene however, has some dark humour as Paul Kersey (Char...
