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

I remember how cool the little smirk that mutant gave when he hit Logan the first time and threw two more near him on the ground, and then he slowly brought out two more in his arms. Awesome. I'd probably vote for that one if it was in there, but the Deathstrike is definitely one of the best.
Actually, sorry, that was one i forgot, I personally would consider it one of the worst, but yeah, I just genuinly forgot about one, sorry.

I did consider that for a bit, but felt it was just too short.

As far as I'm concerned, it's EASILY the worst.

I don't get why people would enjoy the way too overly choreographed fights like Wolverine vs. Lady Deathstrike that really take you out of the depth and drama of the film, when X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men Origins: Wolverine are full of more gritty, raw, and realistic looking fights that don't take you out of the actual movie.
Well, judging by the poll Nell, it isnt .

Personally, I thought the fighting in X3 and Wolverine was more coreographed than anything in X2, the wire-work in X3 and Wolvie was mostly poor as well compared to what I thought was great wire-work in X2 (especially the Nightcrawler scene). Wolverine vs Deathstryke was the right kind of brutal, gritty fight that this series should have had, the action took a step down significantly with X3 IMO, Wolverine improved on X3 a little bit but not by much.
