Whats the best fight scene? and why is pic related? protip: no cgi, my friend
great, a fights in movies thread. i'll put up my two drachma's worth:
great fights sometimes come from absolutely nowhere - when you least expect it. John Cusack's highschool reunion gross point blank shifts gear from sweet memories of school to, out of nowhere, kicking ass with a hired assassin. epic kill too. "it's not me."
great soundtrack too.
what's a good fight? cool action, clever effects smart choreoraphy? sometimes a great fight is about how much you have invested in the outcome - the Matrix fight listed above is probably twice as good for it's audience because it's the first point at which neo actually stands up to the Agents, even knowing that he cant win.
and then there's this:
terrible fighting, terrible choreography, awful effects - but oh, god, the stakes! it makes me cheer every time. Star Wars could learn a thing or two - i think JJ has.
>everyone has guns
>they just charge at each other like fucking raging retards
N O L A N
Single greatest fight scene in a movie, probably of all time.
