What's your favorite movie fight scene?

My all-time favorite is The Matrix's "I know Kung Fu." It was probably one of the first DVDs everyone had so it was just amazing to just go to that scene and watch it over and over again.

Almost tied for first is The Forbidden Kingdom's
Spoiler:
Jackie Chan Vs. Jet Li fight. It is like having Stallone fight Arnie in the Rocky ring - historic. And the fight couldn't have ended any better - A TIE, with each scoring about an equal number of hits. Perfect for two awesome MA movie stars.


I also like the
Spoiler:
gunfight
at the end of Equilibrium.

If I had to choose it would be the last (of two) samurai fight scene at the end of Twilight Samurai. Probably the most realistic sword fight I've ever witnessed on screen, at least how I would imagine it to be.

There was nothing glamorous about it. It was all about intensity and fear, yet there was something remarkably beautiful about the whole sequence.

My favorite (of recent memory) would be the fight in the bus garage in "The Transporter".

So many great Jackie Chan ones, but one that really stands out is the rooftop one in Who Am I?
