So, into mid-table of my list of top hand-to-hand fights
#6 Eastern Promises (Bath House)
This is a pretty brutal fight, a no-holds struggle to the death.
#5 Haywire (Coffee?)
This is just such a surprise as it's the first scene we get with the characters. I like the way some bystanders try to help out too.
#4 Sanjuro (Sanjuro vs. Muroto)
Unfortunately, this clip doesn't include the first 30 seconds of the standoff. It's in stark contrast to the rest of the film, which has a comic slant, it's more tragic as we know that the last act of violence thrills the young onlookers more than it horrifies them.
Top three next week!
