Scott Adkins vs. Andrei Arlovski in Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning (2012)

Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning is certainly one of the most surreal action movies I’ve ever seen and it’s very much an acquired taste. Some people hate it because it strays so far from the original formula but that’s...

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...

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: 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...
