And the best fight is...

Boot to the Head muses on Twitchguru's list of Top 10 Movie Fights. I've seen some of those on the list, and would only add the knife fight in Saving Private Ryan for it's intensity and reality. I could actually feel the knife start to pierce the chest of the GI, and feel the desperation in his eyes as he pleaded with the German to spare his life. Gritty...

Debates like this are fun because they can go on forever, like asking, "Who's the best fighter of all time?" Good list, though.

Update: Dojo Rat reminds us of the epic battle with the bikers in Billy Jack!

Well guys... I tend to only like the ones with a little realism so I vote for "The Hunted", very bad ass knife fight. However, and some may not agree, but the one I identify with the most was not mentioned. It's the fight in the park between Billy Jack and the rednecks. (in the first movie)
I may have to re-visit my previous post on that...

Both great calls, guys. Billy Jack was one of the first karate movies I ever saw in the theatre and Saving Private Ryan's knife fight was absolutely gut-wrenching.
