Mano-A-Mano: Jason Statham vs. Daniel Bernhardt – Parker (2013)

This was easily the best scene in this otherwise pretty average Statham move; don’t get me wrong, the movie is a lot of fun but in terms of action this scene is fantastic. When I was speaking with Daniel a few weeks back ...

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...
