LOL ! Very nice, that second clip makes even the fight scenes
from the old Batman TV show look like the Raid:Redemption.
I agree with your Neal Adams reference. Once upon a time I had
a Neal Adams' Xmen issue, and a buddy of mine used to collect the
independent stuff Adams did (Megalith and Armour I think) for
Continuity comics. Have to say, his art did really leap off the page at
I assume you're referring to Adams' work on Batman, which to be honest
I haven't seen a lot of, but I know enough about Adams' other work
to imagine it was pretty good.
Personally, I quite liked the recent Batman artwork/story around the
"City of Owls" storyline.
Thanks for the clips !
My favourite ever fight scene from any movie, is this one. True it isn't the bloodiest, or the most brutal, or the flashiest, but it has a mixture of
technique, viciousness and frenzy, that 's hard to beat. I liked the Raid,
but found it a bit stylized, even Snyder's work on Watchmen, was a bit
too stylistic for my taste. But this scene has two skilful combatants
squaring off in a frantic, no-holds barred fight to the death. My pick for
Batman's fighting style is.....
