    Oldboy's fight scene (all done in one shot) has to be in the mix too.

    The Raid is really good if you haven't seen it.

    I was there, the guy never showed. Apparently he had to go and get some $ from his GF who worked for a living doing nails.

    Damn straight. Oldboy portrayed what a real street fight looks like.

    - Sloppy choreography
    - People aren't trading blows for 10 minutes, if you aren't trained, you typically won't know how to defend yourself and a couple of punches to the face is more than enough to end you.
    - People are actually getting tired fairly fast
    - Notice how a lot of people in the gang are all bark and no bite, you'll always find those people in a real life brawl.

    Would have been way better if it was 3 minutes shorter, got to the point where it started getting too repetitive.

    But I've seen this movie and it had some insane stunts, I'll give it that.

    Actually, I wish a couple of Hardy's fights were longer than a few seconds, they made him too invincible. I get he was supposed to be this beast, but bottom line is he was out of fighting since like middle school, and even then, he was going against the best 16 fighters in the world, it just took some realism away that he manhandled all his opponents without breaking a sweat.
