Total Recall: The 20 Greatest Fights Scenes Ever
RT picks the 20 greatest fist fights of all time.
|2. The Protector
Tony Jaa vs. everybody
As an attempt to sell Tony Jaa to American audiences, The Protector didn't quite pan out. But it contains a scene of such crazed genius and technical mastery that it warrants the #2 spot on this list. As Jaa ascends the circular staircase of a hotel, he brings the pain to scores of opponents, twisting arms, breaking glass, and throwing people off balconies. It's all captured in a stunning five-minute tracking shot (it's the Russian Ark of action sequences) that seems like it's getting winded just keeping up.
