Some of my favorites:

The rooftop chase in the original Italian Job.

The shootout in Face/Off taking place around Castor Troy's son while he listens to Somewhere Over the Rainbow on his headphones.

The Fifth Element: The entire sequence of events taking place on the cruise ship over Phlostan (sp?) Paradise once the Mangalores overtake the ship.

The final sequence between Deckard and Roy Batty in Blade Runner.

And the earlier mentioned titles are excellent suggestions as well, especially Heat and Hard Boiled.

i had forgot about face/off definitly has some cool action sequences

another one i like is the ending to true romance

the ending of L.A. confidential
the ending to young guns

Bad Boy
Anything by Michael Bay and John Woo!

Indiana Jones going under the truck in Raiders of the Lost Ark.

The car chase(s) in "Ronin".
The final chase in "The Blues Brothers".
The gunfight at the OK Corrall in "Tombstone".
The montage of battles in "Red Dawn".
Keung (Jackie Chan) vs. the gang in their clubhouse in "Rumble in the Bronx".

Just to name a few....

Kill Bill fight sequences are great

Lord of the Rings, all of those huge battles.
Hector and Achilles in troy, and the Bad Boys 2 car chase.....

The Killer has some pretty ba fight scenes. However, they don't like to reload very often.

The matrix lobby scene, the T2 car/motorcycle chase.

There are a number of others, but those head my list.

Absolutely agreed! Here are some of my favorite:

Terminator 2 (The freeway chase)
Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (The mine chase)
Die Hard (The roof top explosion)
The Matrix (lobby scene)
Hard Boiled (The tea house and the hospital scene)
Kill Bill vol. 2 (Elle and the Bride fight)
The Chinese Connection (Bruce fighting the Japanese school)
Robocop (The drug lab warehouse shooting)

the last fight in the matrix and the one where trinity dies and basically all the LOTR and the hector.acillis and hector/acchilis cousin. and erm..when lucy luis head gets cut off in Kiill Bill

The final battle between Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader in Return of the Jedi.

Empires strike back-Luke vs Darth Vadar on clud city.

I just saw Hard-Boiled today and I thought The Killer had better fight scenes.
