Writing articles that cause debate are always fun but can also lead to some concerned readers. Understand these are just some of my favorites and aren’t meant to be the definitive best scenes of outnumbered fighters. I mean, who am I to say what are or aren’t the best.. With that being said, let’s have some fun!
Matrix Reloaded (2003)
“The Burly Brawl” via Matrix Reloaded is by far my favorite outnumbered battle of them all. This scene began with Neo having a conversation with some copies of Agent Smith. Smith explains that the events of The Matrix “Set him free.” So to speak.
Obviously the convo doesn’t end so well.
The scene then whips into a frenzy of epic proportions. With Agent Smith calling as many copies of himself into battle as possible. Neo is all alone and has to find a way to defend himself.
With the help of a trusty pipe he rips out of the ground, Neo reminds Agent Smith why he is the one In one of the greatest choreographed battles of all-time.
John Carter (2012)
Fist of Fury (1972)
Chen Zhen ready for action.
Last but not least, another martial arts epic in my opinion:
Ip Man (2008)
Ip Man centers around the story of Master Ip’s migration to Hong Kong in 1949, while he attempts to teach his discipline of Wing Chun to the world.
In this scene, Master Ip is brought to a prison where he is forced to fight for rations in front of the Japanese general who has a flare for hand to hand combat. Ip decides it’s time to unleash his fury upon the soldiers for injuring his friends. Trust me folks, this is by far one of the greatest battles in martial arts movies!
