Deano’s answer to: “What are the best action scenes in film history?”

For fight scenes, the battle between Jackie Chan and Benny Urquidez in Wheels on Meals(*):

There are a lot of great aspects to this scene, but the no-cutaway spin kick Urquidez does that actually blows out a full candelabra is incredible (@1:24 in the video above)… Lots of great real old school choreographed fighting with medium-to-full power hits (most of the blood is real). Chan at his best.

(* Yes, it should’ve been called Meals on Wheels, but there were worries about Chinese curses involved: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whe… )
