PostSubject: The Awesome Fight Scene Thread!   Sat Mar 27, 2010 2:15 pm

I think we used to have a thread like this back on CoHGuru...didn't we, SEAMUS?

Anyhoo, feast your eyes on this fight scene from Chai Lai. If the fightin' moves themselves don't draw your eye, the trio of towel-clad Thai babes fending off scads of Yakuza-looking goons and beating up some chubby yet acrobatic man-woman creature will. Very Happy





Oh, jeez...the dubbing. Why can't I find a copy with the original Mandarin and some subtitles? Shocked


And just to throw a few more big names in, here's a dash of Bruce Lee with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar...


...Bruce Lee with Jackie Chan (if only for a few seconds at 1:17)...


...and Bruce Lee with Chuck Norris.


There. And I even completed the racial trifecta with a bad-ass black dude, a bad-ass white dude and a bad-ass oriental dude (two if you count Jackie Chan, even if he was in a jobber role here...) while I was at it.

Think that's enough awesome for this thread? Smile

Why would I not love Tony Jaa?

He's thai! And AWESOME!

See?








And personally this movie, and this guy... ROCKS!



And yet another thai film (death trance wasn't thai, lolz) called "Chocolate". I haven't seen it but was looking around for thai films and i remember seeing the trailers for this one. It looks awesome!



Just a little context, the girl's autistic. She learnt to fight from old movies and watching stuff because that's all she could do, she couldn't function in society. The older woman is her mother... haven't got a clue about the gun toting sword guy Sad

My guess is that Mr. Gun-and-Sword is her father, gauging by his protective reactions to the older woman and the girl. Mr. White Jacket and Shades would be the leader of the bad guys, of course. And while I don't buy the "autism = mimetic fighting hardcase" premise, I think a mnemonic mimicry ability would be pretty snazzy. Isn't that what Taskmaster in the Marvel Comics universe has? It seems to serve him pretty well.

The girl's charging knee strike near the beginning (where she nails that guy in the head while he's on all fours) is pretty sweet. And clubbing a bunch of goons into submission with a pair of scabbards was frosting on the cake.

But I can't help but wonder what was with that twitchy spastic with the glasses. Was it a medical issue or was it a deceptive fighting style? He did seem to have some capoeira moves mixed in there....

And you're just now getting back to me about Tony Jaa, Wraith? Where have you been? Very Happy

Then you should just be able to feel your way along the walls on your left-hand side until you reach the exit, right? Razz

I'm a sci-fi guy and I love the fight scene between Anikin and Obi-Wan.
