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.

that scene was awesome...

the lobby and the cheatau fight in the matrix. also the club hel entrance fight scene was good.

achilles and hector. the way achilles was kicking hector's a$$ non-chalantly was awesome. and the way he got p!ssed off when hector scratched his armour.

the bride and o-ren ishii. good sword fight. i expected the whole head, but i'll take the crown anyways. also the bride and pai mei.

nathan algren, katsumoto and the ninja assassins. the sequence was good.

green goblin and spiderman. oscar kick the sh!t outta spidey's a$$. and so did doc ock.
