Movie Shout Outs: Your All Time Fave Fight - Replies!

It's Movie Shout Out Sunday Time!

Yesterday's question was:

What is your all-time favorite movie fight scene?

We got a lot of responses on this one. It seems our fans really dig the ultra-violence.
And a few of you seem to have several "all-time favorites"...

The climactic shootout in The Way of the Gun (2000). God I love that movie.
Alex Lyons via Twitter

Inigo Montoya versus the Man in Black in The Princess Bride (1987).
Jacob V. via Facebook

James Gandolfini versus Patricia Arquette in True Romance (1993)
Sarah K. via Facebook.

Best fights: Angie/Brad - Mr. and Mrs. Smith 2005. Lobby attack in The Matrix (1999). Luke/Darth in Return of the Jedi (1983) . Uma/Hannah in Kill Bill: Volume 2 (2004).
Chris Emerson via Twitter

Richard Kimble Versus the one-armed man in The Fugitive (1963) (TV Series)
Brigitte B. via Facebook

The three masters versus the blind musicians in Kung Fu Hustle (2004)
Patrick O. via Facebook

A fight scene that is intense, heart-rending, explicit, not sexy yet "real" is a naked Viggo Mortensen in Eastern Promises(2007).
Steven M. via Twitter

The fight scene that never was there! Indiana Jones shoots the the sword man in black in Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981).
Scott H. via Facebook

Pretty much ALL of Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon (2000)
Yvonne B. via Facebook

Favuorite fight scene - Jason Bourne beating a man with a hardback book in The Bourne Ultimatum (2007). In fact any fight in that film...
Nik Mortimer via Twitter

That’s easy. The fight scene between Sean Thornton (John Wayne) and Will Danaher (Victor McLaglen) at the end of The Quiet Man (1952).
Tony B. via email

Honestly? The end fight in The Butterfly Sword (1993). Horrible B movies, ftw.
Sarah W. via Twitter

Although I have issues with the rest of the film, Star Wars: The Phantom Menace (1999) 'Duel of the Fates' sequence is a pretty incredible climatic battle. Second place: Bond vs. Sanchez going at it in and around fuel tankers in License to Kill (1989).
Ben L. via Facebook

Pretty much all of Die Hard (1988), don't you think?
K.S. via facebook

The landlady with the curlers and cigarette dangling from her mouth in ANY of a dozen fight scenes in Shaolin Soccer (2001). Also Ford vs Hauer on the roof in the rain at the end of Blade Runner (1982). Beautiful color film noire.
Bob B. via Facebook

Rocky I (1976). Gladiator(2000): When Crowe comes out solo and tears something like 6 men apart. Maybe it's not a fight, it's more like a slaughter. That Jackie Chan movie on the roof with the ladder (can't think of the name of it), and Morpheous vs Agent Smith in The Matrix (1999). That's a few.
Nate A. via Facebook

Darth Maul versus Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi in Star Wars: The Phantom Menace (1999) Or Connor Macleod Versus Aman Fasil in Highlander (1986). Okay, I'll also add Roddy Piper versus Keith David in They Live (1988), Jean-Claude Van Damme versus Bolo Yeung in Bloodsport(1988), Bruce Lee vs. Han in Enter the Dragon (1973), Linda Hamilton vs. the T-800 endoskeleton in The Terminator (1984), and Wolverine vs. everyone in X2 (2003).
Dave M. via Facebook
[Geez Dave. Chill out a bit...Ed.]

The scene in Lethal Weapon 3 (1992), when Rene Russo's character fights five men in the car repair shop while Riggs and Murtaugh watch.

No contest people. My fave fight seen has to be the high school reunion assassin kick boxing fight from Grosse Pointe Blank (1997). Quick, brutal, those dudes really look like their scraping, and it's all set to 'Mirror in the Bathroom' by The English Beat. Fierce!
