Four Movie Scenes With Outnumbered Heroes: Who Handled It Best..?

Published

on

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)

Though John Carter didn’t seem to hold up well in the box office. It still is one of my favorite movies. In this scene we have John Carter, the human who has been teleported to Barsoom aka Mars. Due to bone density, and decreased gravity on Mars, Carter is endowed with the ability to jump extremely high and far. He also has apparent increased strength. Carter, who is trying to find a way home, is chased down by an angry clan of Tharks, and is forced to defend himself and his friends. With the aid of his trusty Woola a ten legged dog like creature who is vicious and can run up to speeds of 250 Mph. Carter and his martian dog engage in an awesome, wild, leaping, bloody battle that will most likely leave you speechless.

Fist of Fury (1972)

Fist of Fury obviously is a super old movie but it was one of the first of its kind to showcase “The Dragon” Bruce Lee at his best. This scene is the result of Bruce Lee’s Character Chen Zhen who vowed to never fight again but is forced into action when members of his family are murdered. Chen decides to pay the Japanese Dojo a visit, and teach some people who the Master is.

Last but not least, another martial arts epic in my opinion:

Ip Man (2008)

If you’ve never seen this movie, you definitely aren’t doing yourself any favors. As Ip Man 1 and 2 are equally epic, I decided to focus on part one. Just for those of you who haven’t seen it, These movies follow the story of the real life legendary trainer of the above mentioned Bruce Lee.

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!

The Iron Claw – Raw and Emotional

Published

on

The Iron Claw tells the story of the Von Erich family, a wrestling dynasty made up of 4 brothers. Kevin Von Erich played by Zac Efron (High school Musical, The Greatest Showman), Kerry Von Erich played by Jeremy Allen White (The Bear), David Von Erich played by Harris Dickinson (Triangle of Sadness), Mike Von Erich played by Stanley Simons and the head of the family, the father Fritz Von Erich played by Holt Mcallany (MindHunter).

The story centres around the bond the brothers have, and the expectations set by their wrestling loving father. The film tackles a variety of themes throughout, but the main one being that of living up to a fathers expectations and the how to process the demons we create.

The film is amazing; from the cinematography, to the performances on screen, the wrestling feels so real and you really feel the intensity of the ring during the fights. Each of the brothers have really put the work in, to give a very convincing physical performance.

For me, the standouts have to be Zac Efron and Jeremy Allen White. Gone is Troy Bolton, Efron in this film in unrecognisable. His acting ability, holding and commanding every scene he is in with a harrowing intensity. Efron delivers a career defining performance in this film, not just from his physical performance but from his emotional delivery in the more hard hitting scenes. I never thought Zac Efron would make me ugly cry in a cinema, but he’s done it. He also proves to be one of the best working actors we have currently, portraying the expectations set upon him as the eldest brother and the emotional and mental toll that it puts on an individual.

Whites performance as well, has that flair we have come to know so well, from his performance as Carmmy on The Bear, with his overall optimism shattered by the end of the film.

The pacing and direction given by Sean Durkin in this is fantastic. It grips you from start to finish, lingering on characters for slightly longer than you would like. To feel the emotion that is being portayed on the screen is amazing to see, I like how he tells a story and a story as tough and as harrowing as this one. I couldn’t think of a better person to be behind the camera for this film. The choice he makes towards the end of the movie for a particular scene, will have even the most stoic amongst you crying, due to the build of the bond these brothers have throughout the movie. This particular scene was one of the most beautiful I have seen in cinema for a long time.

The cast outside of Efron and White are fantastic as well, everyone is giving 100 percent to the characters they are portraying. The fact it is all based on true events makes their performances that much better. It’s an emotional ride through a world which we know very little about outside the glitz and glamour of the WWE, it’s a shame that this film may miss out of the Oscar buzz because it is truly an Oscar worthy film, with a Best Actor performance given by Zac Efron.

You need to see this film, one of the most harrowing and emotional sports films I have ever seen.

The Marvels Going Higher, Further, Faster!

Published

on

The Marvels (Marvel Studios)

Plot

Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel has reclaimed her identity from the tyrannical Kree and taken revenge on the Supreme Intelligence. But unintended consequences see Carol shouldering the burden of a destabilized universe. When her duties send her to an anomalous wormhole linked to a Kree revolutionary, her powers become entangled with that of Jersey City super-fan Kamala Khan, aka Ms. Marvel, and Carol’s estranged niece, now S.A.B.E.R. astronaut Captain Monica Rambeau.

Brie Larson as Carol Danvers / Captain Marvel (Marvel Studios)

Movie Review (no spoilers)

Exceptional performance by Brie Larson, Teyonah Parris and Iman Vellani as Carol Danvers / Captain Marvel, Monica Rambeau and Kamala Khan / Ms. Marvel respectively. Samuel L. Jackson is back with a fury as Nick Fury and bringing the much-needed energy and comic relief as usual.

I highly encourage watching the following Marvel movies and TV series in order to thoroughly prepare for The Marvels.

  1. Avengers: Infinity War (2018)
  2. Captain Marvel (2019)
  3. Avengers: Endgame (2019)
  4. WandaVision (2021)
  5. Ms. Marvel (2022)
  6. Secret Invasion (2023)

The Marvels’ storyline picks up right after each of the main stars’ respective storylines and manages to combine their story arc into a unique and marvelous manner, keeping it consistent with some of the current events within the broad Marvel Cinematic Universe and developing our heroes from individual stars into a team of superstars. The costumes are aesthetically pleasing.

Zawe Ashton plays the part of Dar-Benn, the antagonist in The Marvels. I would have loved to see more of her character’s backstory and hope that we get to see more backgrounds being unpacked either through Marvel TV Series or even an television special.

The movie’s runtime is 105 minutes, making it the shortest Marvel movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The story felt a little bit rushed, considering a dangerous mission is underway to prevent world-level ramifications but no-time is wasted to deliver yet another masterpiece in the cinematic universe.

The story delivers a few unique twists, lots of humor and a few surprises. The movie definitely contains something for everyone, young and old, and I encourage you to take the whole family to experience The Marvels.

Teyonah Parris as Captain Monica Rambeau (Marvel Studios)

The Marvels is a story that keeps the golden thread, which is the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and still manages to peak higher, further and faster into the multiversal trajectory.

The trailer doesn’t spoil much, but as always, a secret awaits for those who eagerly pay attention to the Marvel’s trailers. My only worry is that usually key spoilers tend to emerge in the week following the release of the movie in the forms of updated sneak peaks and mini-trailers.

There is a mid-credits scene that you don’t want to miss, but no post-credits scene.

I rate this movie 4 out of 5. Really excited to see what the future holds for Captain Marvel.

Watch at a cinema near you!
