Who doesn’t love a good fight scene in an action movie? Okay, we all know that the fight scenes in boxing movies, like “Million Dollar Baby,” “Rocky,” and “Raging Bull” are going to be stellar, but what other movies have had the best fight scenes? I certainly have my favorites, not necessarily because they’re so well choreographed, but because they’re funny, intense, or just plain awesome. Here’s my list of the 7 best movie fight scenes… outside of the obvious!
1. Indiana Jones and the Swordsman in “Raiders of the Lost Ark”
In this scene, the original tomb raider/archaeologist Indiana Jones is confronted with a skilled Arab swordsman, who displays his prowess before they engage. Obviously outmanned, Indy does what any of us would do in the logical world — he pulls his gun from his hip holster and shoots him. Problem solved!
