    Petros, welcome to the forum!
    One of the best fight scene's i've ever seen is in the film They Live. In case you havn't seen it, it has Roddy Piper and Kieth David in a fistfight in an alley that goes on forever! Great scene!

    Well, for a true American classic fight scene, one would do quite well watching The Quiet Man. Probably not what you were asking for, but that's my choice. [​IMG]

    The fight between Oharra (Robert Wall) and Lee (Bruce Lee) in "Enter the Dragon". If you watch closely, Wall does not land even one clean blow on Bruce during the entire fight. In other words, Bruce thoroughly cleaned Wall's clock!
    This was probably Bruce Lee at his finest.

    Me against Disney for the constantly buggy/screwed up DVD's. They must pay.

    Everything Bruce Lee does in his first 3 movies.
    Also I always loved the fight between Alexs Droogs and Billy Boys gang in A Clockwork Orange.

    Two scenes from The Matrix. First one where Trinity kicks some police ass in the beginning, the second near the end where Neo beats down Agent Smith.

    Bruce Lee vs Chuck Norris, Bruce Lee vs Japanese school, Bruce Lee vs Anyone!!
    The Matrix had some great fight scenes.
    And ofcourse the mother of them all (here we go again)...
    Roddy Piper vs Keith David in They Live!
    Bond vs Red Grant in From Russia With Love was the most vicious fight in any Bond movie.
    Rocky vs Apollo in Rocky II was the rematch to end all rematches, I fell off my seat twice watching that!
    Jet Li's fights in Fist of Legend were incredible.
    And lets not forget King Kong vs Godzilla what a nailbiter that was. [​IMG]

    My Favorite Fight Scenes (In no particular order):
    From Russia With Love: Between James Bond and "Red" Grant on the Orient Express. IMO, the best fight scene on film.
    The Princess Bride: Between Inigo Montoya and the Dread Pirate Roberts. "I'm not left-handed either!" [​IMG]
    Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: The second duel between Yu Shu Lien and Jen Yu.
    The Last of the Mohicans: When Chingachgook thoroughly wastes Magua for killing his son.
    Excalibur: The final battle between the forces of Arthur and Mordred.
    GoldenEye: Between James Bond and Alec Teveleyn at the top of the satellite dish.
    Monty Python And The Holy Grail: Between Arthur and the Black Knight. "Only a flesh wound!" [​IMG]
    Gladiator: In the arena, when Maximus slaughters all opposition, ending with that decapitation. Ouch!
    Saving Private Ryan: Between Private Mellish and the German soldier. I think the sound of the knife is what makes it painful to watch...
    Tomstone: Not much of a fight, but between Wyatt Earp and Johnny Tyler. "Are you gonna do something, or just stand there and bleed?" [​IMG]
    They Live: Between Nada and Frank. Definitely not the best of fights, but certainly the longest!
