In Soviet Russia, ass kicks YOU
This fight scene — apparently the FIRST fight scene in the film — definitely makes me want to see the movie. The action is maybe a bit too wushu to be believable in a kickboxing tournament, but I can forgive that because of the levels of awesome it achieves. And unlike many fight scenes today, the action is extremely well-shot. There’s no cheating in quick cuts here. Just great, brutal choreography and performances.
I’m going to check YouTube for some other of my favorite fight scenes.
