Mano-A-Mano: Iron Man vs. Whiplash (Iron Man 2)

This is arguably the best scene of the movie; I mean how do you get Mickey Rourke to play an awesome villain like this and then totally under use him? Anyway, the scene takes place at the Monaco Grand Prix where Tony Stark is e...

Cobra vs. The Night Slasher: Cobra (1986)

“Let’s Bleed, Pig!” Brian Thompson always terrified me when I was a kid with his portrayal of The Nightslasher in Sylvester Stallone’s Cobra.  I don’t think anyone can say “PIG!” w...

Mano-A-Mano: Statham vs. Adkins in The Expendables 2

Although this fight scene is far too short, it’s still totally awesome with the best of British battling it out against each other in the climactic battle of The Expendables 2. I was delighted to see Scott Adkins get a de...
