It’s pretty much the consensus that Gareth Evans, the director of The Raid and The Raid 2, is the greatest action director around right now.
Ok, well at least to me.
During a recent interview with /Film’s David Chen, the director listed his favorite five action scenes ever and he actually breaks them down. These are obviously scenes that have inspired him over the years to do what he does.
The video below features clips from this list:
Wheels on Meals (1984) – Jackie Chan vs. Benny “The Jet” Urquidez
Armor of God (1986) – Jackie Chan vs. The Monks
The Live (1988) – Rowdy Roddy Pipewr vs. Keith David
Police Story 1 (1985) – Jackie Chan vs. Everybody
Fist of Legend (1994) – Jet Li vs. Yasuaki Kurata
Jackie Chan is in 3 of the 5, I love that! What’s your list?
