    4 minute ass kick fest. The most amazing part? It was one entire cut. No editing, no breaks, one solid take from the start of the climb to the top of the stairs.

    Tony Jaa was without a doubt my favorite movie Martial Artist. It absolutely stunned me when I found out he gave up acting to become a monk.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    That was an amazing scene as well. I loved how simplistic his fighting style is. Nothing fancy about it. Just sheer brutal ass beating.

    That one was too disjointed in my opinion, switching from the space battle to the ground team to Luke vs Dad. It broke the flow of it.

    And despite being filmed 27 years ago is still one of the best looking space battles to ever grace TV. Not to mention it wasn't directed by a douche bag.

    I would be very interested in a movie that focused on something like a mega-space battle. Much like the scene in Serenity, but lasting longer then just a couple of minutes.

    Babylon 5's space battles looked much better than the ones in Jedi.

    Babylon 5 was shoddy CGI. Didn't even come close to looking real. Jedi didn't have that problem.

    Ong Bak 2 actually has even more amazing fight choreography, if you can believe it. Tony Jaa has taken it to a new level.

    Eh... Ong Bok 2 was just a horrible movie. I do agree there was some amazing fighting in it, but the movie was so abysmally bad I had to force myself to sit through it.

    And I don't recall any part of it where he flies through the air for 10 feet to double knee a guy in the face. WITHOUT WIRES!

    Oh yes it's very good, but the asteroid chase sort of set the bar for everything that followed IMO. That and the opening shot of epsode IV and of course the escape from the Death star in IV.
