List: The 20 Greatest Movie Fights of All Time

posted by Nell Minow

Tim Ryan of Rotten Tomatoes picks the 20 greatest movie fights of all time, and as you can imagine, it has prompted some impassioned arguments, you might even say fights, in the comments. I love its scope — it even manages to include a romantic comedy (the Colin Firth/Hugh Grant “It’s Raining Men” fight from “Bridget Jones’ Diary”) along with all of the martial arts/boxing/noir/spy/plain-old-fashioned-beat-downs. The best part is that it includes the clips, so you can see for yourself. But like most lists, it will leave you thinking of the ones they left out. No “Kill Bill?” No John Wayne? No “Adventures of Robin Hood?” And, incredibly, no Merlin vs. Madame Mim? (Sorry, the only clip I could find was in French, but you don’t need to understand what they’re saying to enjoy this one.)
