    The music, the emotion, the insane choreography.

    P.S. Ip Man was Bruce Lee's grandmaster.

    Not sure about the best modern day fight, but this is the best fight EVER.. Won't watch this crap these days, but when you were 7, you thought this fight was real :)

    Honestly I was kinda bored during this fight scene and they went overboard with the slow mo. And another thing that made the Ip Man fight scene so great is that it was still realistic, in real life, people don't go on beating the crap out of each other for 20 minutes, the human body can't take that much punishment, Tony Jaa's fights are way too long.

    Not the best one that will be posted but it deserves a mention.



    The greatest fight? No

    An excellent fight scene? Yes

    Brutal, no music, watching Batman getting taken apart never gets old. Maybe watching your childhood hero get the hell beat out of him gets you right in the feels.

    The cuts of Bane's henchmen looking on with no emotion and Batman's cry at 1:22 (like it just hit him he isn't what he used to be and he's met someone who's physically superior to him) are also what made it so great.

    However if I were to nitpick, my two beefs with the fight scene is 1. Some of the sound effects were kinda too cheesy and 2. There were several obvious moments where Batman's clearly not hitting Bane, like something you would easily notice the first time.
