The big fight scene from Grosse Point Blank.
Three things I wanna mention about this particular clip:
1. I remember seeing this in the theater with a group of friends. When they started fighting, I immediately nudged my friend next to me and said "Kickboxing...sport of the future" from Say Anything. I think a lot of people in the audience were thinking the same thing.
2. The man that Cusack is fighting is Benny "The Jet" Urquidez. A real-life martial arts champion. Maybe one of the most famous of all-time. He won over 200 bouts with no losses in full contact karate, and he held six different world titles in five weight divisions for over 24 years! So yeah...in reality he would have kicked Johnny Boy's ass!
3. I love me some 2 Tone ska, and The Beat, or The English Beat if you prefer, are one of my favorites. I always loved the song "Mirror in the Bathroom", but now when I hear it I can't help but think of this scene. Amazing the things that a good soundtrack to a good movie can do with your head.
