    I tried to watch the Raid. Couldn't get past the 20-minute-mark. It's a problem I have with most fight movies, especially the martial arts ones: it's all choreography. People don't fight like that and never have. Oh, so you move your hand this way? Well, my quick thinking will counter that with a punch to your kidney, a finger to your throat and a knee to the back of your head.

    We instinctively know how to fight: with our arms/hands and legs/feet. And real fights are always clumsy and dirty. There are always more misses than hits. Have you ever watched a boxing match from start to finish, not just the highlights? It's ridiculous how ineffective even the best boxers are. And that's why we invented spears and knives and guns. To stop looking like complete buffoons on the battlefield.

    Absolutely agree. Martial arts in for example athletic setting, looks like a bunch of kids flailing their hands at each others - the rest is coreography and movie trend. Matrix has, hilariously enough, some of the worst looking fighting, since every damn punch or block includes a neat little pause, so one can fully appreciate each pose. Fuckin Karate Kid has more realistic fighting than that

    By now though, it's too cemented in culture, I guess. How many movie baddies just walk away from that well-deserved jaw-punch they recieved? How about having them fall and knock their head against the ground, for then to start shaking and snoring :D
