Adam Sandler VS The Bathroom in Punch Drunk Love. It rings so true to me.

The end scene in The Wild Bunch is definately amazing. I know the violence is always discussed. Especially since it was relatively explicit in '69. But it's always been the 'stop running' and 'give me back my our guy'. And there's also the part between the two guys who just kind of read each other's eyes, and then say 'okay'.

"They Live" is awesome on it's own hokey level. Though it drags a lot and isn't necesarilly easy to watch. The movie, on the other hand, is tons of fun (and fits my kind of rebellion).

I always liked the 'industrial' feel of the two terminators fighting each other in T2. The thought put into the physics impressed me. It's not like these days when they wire-fu it and throw you fifty feet. Or having a shotgun blast throw you twenty feet through a window. It was human-sized steel (or alloy-whatever) robotics punching and tossing and stuff. There wasn't anything superhuman about it.

Kung Fu Hustle. The 'reveal' scene for the masters. And the casino scene. Both are delivered with so much inner power. And the movie also forces you to like the characters - which is a must.

Gotta show Jackie Chan some more love. Who can choose just one?

And I love this one with Tony Jaa from The Protector - the endless wave of cronies getting destroyed just cracks me up.

All the shit from The Raid and Jackie Chan's fights from Drunken Master 2, especially that final fight scene with "Legs."

* The lengthy boxing scenes between Robert Ryan and the other guy in The Set-Up.

* Virtually the entirety of Blood Sport.

* The great boxing scenes in Diggstown.

* John Wayne and Lee Marvin in Donavan's Reef.

Also the fight scenes from Undisputed 2 & Undisputed 3. Scott Adkins is a beast.

I actually like the fight in the original Rocky the best.
I also like the comical wizard battle in Sword in the Stone.
I love Jackie Chan but I can't remember a specific fight scene that I love from all his movies.
Kill Bill 1 is loaded with great fights. And I agree with the others who mentioned Enter the Dragon.

Batman vs Bane part 1 was pretty badass. My favorite scene in the movie.

ruddiger_718 nailed it right on the head for me.

I could list any fight that was in The Raid and it would have to be somewhere on the 'Best Of' list. That movie has some of the best fight sequences. Can't wait to buy it on Blu-ray.

The other bond fight in The Spy who loved me in Egypt. Raw with no stupid Bourne Kung. Fu rickety. The finale of Goldeneye, 006 vs 007 how to do modern without Bourne.

Re: What's your favorite movie fight scene?

Donnie Yen vs 10 karate masters in IP Man
the casino scene in District 13
any scene in the Raid
Gina Carano vs Michael Fassbender in Haywire

Also since i've seen a few mention the gun battle at the end of the Wild Bunch, i assume that gun fights would count too?
Lobby scene in The Matrix
heist scene in Heat
the grand finale in The Killer

I've seen better fights in a WWE ring.

Mine? The Quiet Man fistfight.

What's your problem with the fight scenes in the Bourne movies? He's using fighting techniques taught to real life military/policy personnel (krav maga, escrima, etc). Sure in real life the fights wouldn't last as long, but they are legit and effective styles of fighting.

Also it's hilarious that you prefer Bond fight scenes. Is there anything more over the top than a Bond action scene?

The fight scene in Ted between Wahlberg and the bear was pretty epic.

I liked The Raid, but that was actually the worst part of the movie. An absurdly long, repetitive (elbow, knee, elbow, knee) fight. It was cool at first, then got comical, then boring.

There's much better action scenes out there than this one.

You said the name of the character but called him "the bear"

Re: What's your favorite movie fight scene?

And I called him Wahlberg instead of his character name of "John"...who the fuck cares? It's a bear. It's Wahlberg. They fought. Deal.

EDIT: "Please enjoy this amusing fight between John, played by Mark Wahlberg, and the title character Ted, who is a digitally animated teddy bear voiced by the writer and director of the movie, Seth MacFarlane."

Better, nitpicker?

James Bond (Sean Connery) vs. Red Grant (Robert Shaw) in the train compartment in FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE (1963)--hands-down best fight scene ever.

Re: What's your favorite movie fight scene?

Came into the thread to post about Eastwood and Kennedy in Thunderbolt and Lightfoot, then did a search and found out that I already had in 2008.

I searched for another favorite and didn't see Rod Taylor and Big Bill Smith's epic slugfest in Darker than Amber, which reportedly got out of hand and resulted in real injuries to both men.
