Mano-A-Mano: Sylvester Stallone Vs. Jason Momoa – “Bullet To The Head”

Usually at the end of every action film, the hero fights the villain in a mano-a-mano fight. A one on one battle to the death.  Two men enter, and one man leaves. Ok, ok ….you get the idea. You have seen the fist fight. ...

Mano-A-Mano: Burke vs. The Sandman (Death Warrant)

Death Warrant doesn’t get nearly enough love in my opinion; it’s one of my favourite Jean-Claude Van Damme movies and I think The Sandman played by Patrick Kilpatrick is a classic villain. He’s creepy as hell ...

Ethan Hunt vs. Sean Ambrose – Mission: Impossible II

I’ve always loved this fight scene, simply for the fact that both Tom Cruise and Dougray Scott would clearly be very dead after jumping off the motorbikes, crashing into each other and falling off what looks like a pretty...

Mana-A-Mano: Frank Dux vs. Chong Li – Bloodsport

I think we can all agree that this is one of Jean-Claude Van Damme’s very best fight scenes; we really get to see his martial arts skills and when he finally gets Chong Li to say “Matte” we all cheer. Bolo Yeu...

Donnie Yen vs. Yu Xing – Flashpoint

Flashpoint was a great vehicle to showcase Donnie Yen’s fighting skills to the world including his MMA abilities. In this scene Donnie show us how a person driven by rage can kill another person in a fight.

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: 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...

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: 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...

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 ...
