Scene of the Week: Best of the Best
When I think of excellent Martial Arts movies Best of the Best isn’t the first title that comes to mind but I’ve been a fan of this movie ever since I was a little kid shadow fighting in my living room. while Phillip Rhee is most certainly the star of the film as Tommy Lee, my man Eric Roberts does a fine job and totally impressed me with his fight scenes.
The scene featured below comes near the end of the film as the American team faces off against the team from South Korea in a Taekwondo competition for the ages. The movie delivers on multiple levels; bar fights, training montages, Chris Penn breaking bricks, and Asians punching the shit out of trees in the middle of a damn snowstorm! Everything you could ever want in a movie.
