There are however exceptions; I always liked the way they did it in the Bourne films - shaky camera, but no excessive cutting. I suppose, we can dispense of the old adage that no serious fight lasts longer than 20 seconds; after all these are top killers fighting each other, so it may take a bit longer to find a chink in the defense. I especially like the improvisation, whether it's the pen in the Paris apartment (1st film), or the rolled-up news magazine as a short stick in the 2nd:

The battle/fight scenes in "Last Samurai" are indeed great. What really made the film special to me was Ken Watanabe's tour de force performance. He was fantastic.

Well, he did have a lot of experience playing Japanese characters. wink

No problem with people murdering each other, but the swearing is the problem?

The Hit Girl scene at Rassul's in the first Kick A$$ movie has got to be one of the most unexpected approaches to a fight scene based simply on the fact that she was a little girl.


The issue is not p*ssy. The issue is monkey.

Well, I'm following Forum rules.

And we do have problems with people murdering each other. No one likes when it happens. That's all I'll say because I don't want this thread going PWEC.

Well the murdering is pretend, the profanity is real.

One of the best melee scene in movies:



Of course, the Princess Bride itself being one of the greatest movies of all time, helps. smile

Yes, the brutal fight in the bathroom at the French nightclub was very well done.

I always found this exchange between them in that scene quite humorous.

Inigo Montoya: Who are you?
Man in Black: No one of consequence.
Inigo Montoya: I must know...
Man in Black: Get used to disappointment.

Guys, "melee" has a broad definition in general as a loud confused fight in a crowd or mob, but usually it's assumed to mean hand to hand combat

I'll take almost anything with Toshiro Mifune

As much flak as the prequels got, the Darth Maul/Qui-Gon Jin/Obi-Wan lightsaber duel is epic. lightsabers And coming up on 20 years!
