Classic Action Scene: Ip Man Final Fight

I remember the first time I saw this movie, I was blown away by the fight scenes, but not just that; I actually cared about the characters and I really think this is Donnie Yen’s most iconic role. He makes Yip Man look to...

Classic Action Scenes – Battle In The Courthouse “Stone Cold”

Just like most popular songs in the 80’s, this is Brian Bosworth’s one hit wonder. The film is among the best actioners of the 90’s and was supposed to make Bosworth a house hold name in action films, but unfo...

Classic Action Scene: Warehouse Shoot-Out From Joshua Tree

Joshua Tree AKA Army of One is one of my favourite Dolph Lundgren movies; mainly for this scene alone where Dolph kills about 20,000 people. It’s funny that I only ever saw the cut version of this movie when I lived in th...

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: Anybody Seen Richie? – Out For Justice

This is the best scene Steven Seagal ever has done or ever will do; everything about it is pure badass. The sheer ballsiness of his character Gino, walking into a bar and pretty much beating up everyone is beyond cool. I love h...

Classic Action Scene: Bus Fight from The Specialist (1994)

I know this movie gets a lot of hate from everyone but I’ve always really enjoyed it; I think I find it hard not to enjoy any movie that’s set in Miami. It’s sunny, it has hot women but more importantly it has...

Classic Action Scene: JCVD Street Fights in Hard Target

Hard Target remains one of my very favourite Jean-Claude Van Damme movies; it’s essentially a 2 hour Levi’s commercial except with a huge bodycount. In this classic scene Natasha played by Yancy Butler is getting mu...

Classic Action Scene: Cobra (1986) Supermarket Opening

If you don’t like this movie then frankly you suck; it is one of Stallone’s finest hours and what people tend not to understand is that Sly never takes himself seriously. He always has that twinkle in his eye and Co...

Classic Action Scenes: Street Shootout from Heat

I think this may arguably be the greatest shootout of all time; the sound design is incredible and notice that there isn’t any music once the action begins. It works so much better and makes it more real. It’s almos...
