The Punisher vs. The Russian (2004)

One of the best action scenes in the 2004 Thomas Jane Punisher movie was his one on one with the silent goon known only as The Russian.

Played with glee by wrestler Kevin Nash, the scene manages to be brutal and yet funny at the same time.

I only discovered recently that Nash actually got stabbed by Thomas Jane for real filming the scene; apparently Jane forgot to swap a real knife for a prop one and Nash didn’t realize until the scene was wrapped.
