    are a disturbingly growing trend. Hollywood, listen up, CLOSE UPS DO NOT REPLACE CHOREOGRAPHY!!! A fight has MUCH more impact when we can actually see what is happening, instead of just seeing a twisted up collection of arms, feet, and misc other body parts.

    That is all.

    I thought the fights in the Transporter movies were well done.

    Throw in some boobies, guns, fast cars, and a fight sceen and you have a perfect formula hollywood action movie.

    Sceens that are too chopped up drive me nuts. Plus, good dialogue is a must, that's why I like Tarentino movies so much. Great dialogue.

    I agree with both sled & RJ.. I also dislike the stupid slo - mo midair kung fu crap that's prevalent..

    I always liked the fight scene at the end of the first lethal weapon, although it went on too long to be realistic, it was a great dramamtic moment..

    I also liked the fighting in the bourne incident / supremacy movies ( kali!), and the patrick swayze movie roadhouse, esp. the scene where sam elliot's character kicks the knee of the bad guy.. you don't see much of that, not since billy jack, anyway..

    the second one fell victim to closeup fight scenes in a few spots I seem to remember. The first one was very good.



    The Road Warrior is a classic, have you seen MadMax though?
