Marked for Death (1990) Mall Fight

Remember when Seagal fight scenes were awesome? This was one of my favourites as he casually takes on several members of the Jamaican posse in a mall after they “fuck with his family”. Limbs are snapped as if they a...

Classic Action Scene: Equilibrium Final Shoot Out

If ever there’s a movie that deserves a lot more love it’s this frankly classic sci-fi actioner starring Christian Bale and Taye Diggs. The concept is fabulously out there, but the execution is so expertly done that...

Classic Action Scene: Bar Shoot-out from Last Man Standing

Remember when Bruce Willis was one of the coolest action stars in the business? Well, for me this was his absolute prime. Last Man Standing doesn’t get talked about too much but it’s my third favourite film of his a...

Classic Action Scene: Bullitt – Car Chase

Who can forget this legendary cop movie starring Steve McQueen? This is arguably the best car chase in cinema history; no cgi, no fast cuts, just sheer driving skill. Steve McQueen’s driving skill too as I believe he like...

Xander’s Entrance from Enemies Closer

This is easily the best scene in the entire movie but it really is Jean-Claude Van Damme in one of his best roles. As stated before he’s essentially channeling The Joker and is hilariously unhinged. I love the way he mess...

H.A.L.O. Jump Scene from Godzilla (2014)

Like many of you I found the 2014 Godzilla film to be a bit of a disappointment; I just wanted more of Godzilla and Bryan Cranston but instead we got Aaron Taylor Johnson being bland and forgettable. The film builds up the tens...
