    What's the Greatest Knock-Down, Drag-out Fight Scene of All Time?

    I realize there's probably more than one thread on Bullshido asking the question, "what's the greatest fight scene ever filmed?" but this is your chance to share your accumulated knowledge of fight scenes with another audience. The fine folks over at the Gawker science fiction blog io9 have opened a thread asking the same question. Some of their contenders include: They Live, The Matrix, The Raid, the airplane brawl from Raiders of the Lost Ark... and this fight from Old Boy which I'd never seen, but I think certainly counts: So... Can you add to the io9 list?

    There were some in the various Jason Bourne movies that I thought were pretty brutal.

    The Indiana Jones vs Nazi under the flying wing was a good one. The fight scene in They Live is great:


    I hear they decided to really hit each other when it wasn't to the head. Roddy Piper was in it so I wouldn't be surprised. Speaking of pro wrestlers in movie fight scenes, this is my favorite knock down drag out fight scene:

    The Duellists (directed by Ridley Scott, starring Harvey Keitel and Keith Carradine. Based on a true story, which is actually weirder than the movie)

    The correct answer was They Live before I opened the thread.
