Here’s my favorite scene from Rapid Fire (1992). This is also the best fight I can remember seeing Al Leong in. Al Leong was one of the most prolific stuntmen in Hollywood in the ‘80s and ‘90s, whenever they needed an ‘Asian heavy’. But he was almost never given the opportunity to put up a good fight onscreen, like he did here.ladybug93 wrote: ↑Wed May 27, 2020 6:47 pmi like a lot of martial arts movies, but one movie jumped out in my mind when i saw this thread for having the most consistently good fighting throughout. that movie is rapid fire with brandon lee. it was actually a pretty good movie too, for a lower budget action movie. powers booth is in it and he's probably the worst actor in the movie, despite being one of the bigger names at the time. anyway, you get to see some of his dad in his facial expressions and fighting style throughout the movie. the action is well-paced and the fights are well-choreographed. unfortunately, there is some nudity in the movie, which i try to steer clear of, so i haven't seen it in years. i just wanted to give that disclaimer in case anyone else shares the same concerns.
I read somewhere that this was the last scene shot for the movie. Harrison Ford was suppose to continue fighting the sword wielding opponent but he, Ford, had a rip roaring case of food poisoning. They re-wrote the scene to cut it short.
Very interesting! Well, as it turned out, the way the scene ended up was probably better than the original concept would have turned out. That’s usually the first scene (or one of the first scenes) that people mention when discussing Raiders of the Lost Ark. That and the “I hate snakes!” scene.Pokey wrote: ↑Mon Jun 01, 2020 12:34 amI read somewhere that this was the last scene shot for the movie.
