Mano-A-Mano: Yuri Boyka vs. George ‘Iceman’ Chambers: Undisputed 2

The Undisputed sequels (2 & 3) are two of the best martial arts movies of recent times; the characters are well developed and Boyka especially has become a true icon of action. I’m kinda cheating for this one because ...

Nunchuck Scene from Legend Of The Fist

When people talk about Donnie Yen’s best movies I’m always surprised that Legend of the Fist doesn’t get more love; it’s certainly one of my favourites as it’s beautifully shot, has a great story a...

Bar Fight from Road House (1989)

Plot: The Double Deuce is the meanest, loudest and rowdiest bar south of the Mason-Dixon Line, and Dalton (Patrick Swayze) has been hired to clean it up. He might not look like much, but the Ph.D.-educated bouncer proves heR...

Final Fight from The Glimmer Man

I’ve always loved The Glimmer Man; but it’s one of the Seagal movies that few people still talk about. This final fight scene is incredibly satisfying with one of the best bad guy deaths in any Seagal movie… a...

Tony Jaa vs. Marrese Crump: The Protector 2

The film may have been disappointing but this fight scene was the best part of it. Personally I could have done without the twins and just kept it as Jaa vs. Crump but it’s still a cool fight. Marrese designed the CMA sty...

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 th...

Ripley vs. The Alien Queen (1986)

Today marks the 30th anniversary of James Cameron’s classic Aliens starring Sigourney Weaver, Bill Paxton and Michael Biehn. It’s one of the most quotable movies ever made and for me at least it’s the best of ...

John Spartan vs. Simon Phoenix: Demolition Man

Demolition Man has always been one of my favourite Stallone movies; its hilarious script and awesome action make it essential and Wesley Snipes is arguably on career best form. The film tells the story of two men—one, an evil...

Mano-A-Mano: Roddy Piper vs. Keith David: They Live

This is the best scene of the John Carpenter classic They Live; a classic punch up between Keith David and Roddy Piper. The two men are friends and the fight is over the stupidest thing of all time. Keith David refuses to put o...

Mano-A-Mano: Martin Riggs vs. Mr. Joshua – Lethal Weapon

The first Lethal Weapon movie will always be my favourite of the series; although it had plenty of humour, it managed to feel gritty and more serious before Joe Pesci came in and became annoying as hell. Gary Busey plays Mr. Jo...
