Best fight scene ever (link roundup)




A lofty claim, but this fight scene from Undefeatable just gets better and better and finishes with not one, but two cringeworthy puns. This summary from Wikipedia is pretty funny too:

It was directed by Godfrey Ho, using the pseudonym Godfrey Hall. Undefeatable borrows several plot points from the Sylvester Stallone movie Cobra.

The film features a notable fight scene towards the end approximately three minutes long. This fight is often cited as the worst fight scene ever filmed due to its poor close-up shots, slow movements, bizarre movements and actions, constant shouting, and needless shirt ripping.[1][2] Also cited are strange maneuvers and plot changes – including a towel used to hold an arm and Kristi, with arm in sling, fighting with no apparent handicap or notice of arm.

And a few more links:

1. Tomorrow is the live performance of Neuromancer, although it looks like it's just going to be a live reading.

2. Video of Gavin Newsom responding very poorly to hostile questioning.

3. Huge number of entries in Topless Robot's "I knew I was a nerd when..." contest.

*Previously: Neuromancer poster.

*Buy Undefeatable at Amazon.

  1. You really have to get the DVD. I've been a 'fan' for quite some while and must say while this scene is amazing there's so many more in the film. A master-class in horrifically brilliant entertainment.
