4. The Legend of Drunken Master
Jackie Chan vs. Ken Lo

Combining unimpeachable martial arts technique with the slapstick comedy and death-defying stuntwork of silent clown Buster Keaton, Jackie Chan changed the face of action cinema. Chan's filmography is rich with potent fight scenes, but the final battle in The Legend of Drunken Master may be his apex. As a master of "drunken boxing" -- so named because inebriation helps loosen the body and lessen pain -- Chan attempts to thwart the smuggling of priceless artifacts out of China. It all culminates in a climactic battle royale in a steel factory -- a sequence of astonishing dexterity and grace that combines full tilt punches and kicks with maniacal physical comedy.
