In celebration of the Raid 2 coming out on DVD and Blu-Ray this week, we are doing the top 10 lesser known movie fights without obvious special effects and wires. After watching it, was probably some of the grittiest fight scenes I have ever seen cinema. This made me decide to do a post on a list of other fight scenes where the actors just leave it all on the table. The rules are the scene can’t have obvious wires or special effects. It has to look like a real fight and not so much choreographed. A movie and actor can only be listed once. Also, at least one person must die in the scene. Can’t list Tony Jaa or any of the fights from the first Raid. That’s just the obvious choice. Remember, this is not an official list of any sort. It’s just my list and I hope you enjoy. Let me know what you’re lists would be or if I missed anything in the comments section. I apologize in advance, that some of the videos are poor quality. I”m not going to lie, there are going to be some fights you recognize, but for the younger generation, it’s new to them. That’s my excuse…KIYA!!!! or something like that!
