Default Re: Best one vs one fight in the X-Franchise?

In my opinion the Mystique/Wolverine fight is the worst of them all.

But the problem is with ANY Wolverine fight the drama, depth, and realism is takes you out of the moment because he can't die.

ALL of the fights in X-Men Origins: Wolverine had the right idea but they REALLY dropped the ball on the fights between him and Victor.
I thought that all of the fights between Logan and Creed in X-Men Origins were particularly brutal, especially the first one. My problem with the other 2 were really just the fact that they were too short. I really felt that the final fight at 3 Mile Island was too short, but during the fight I got really into the fight, and thought it was getting pretty viscous. But next thing you know, they crash through the window, and that's it.

I thought that a lot of the fights in X-Men 3 seemed pretty realistic. Wolverine vs. Limb Regrow Guy was a bit cheesy, but the rest of the combat in the final battle seemed pretty realistic and not overly choreographed. I saw one really bad scene of wirework with Beast, but the rest seemed very natural to me.

Logan vs. Creed in Canada at the beginning of X-Men was pretty good, and I even kind of liked the final battle on the statue of Liberty, but that's about it.

Singer had some good action sequences, but the one on one fights I thought were pretty bad for the most part.
