Not an action scene per se, but Every Frame A Painting talking about why Jackie Chan kicks rear end is a great video:

This is an awesome video and analysis.

My favorite action scene is more of a training scene but still brutal and intense. From the Raid 2:

Yeah, this movie is a lot better than it has any right to be. The final duel between the Knight Templar and the Viking chief kicks rear end, and Paul Giamatti is a goddamn national treasure. His speech about the Divine Right of Kings* plays in my head whenever I play Crusader Kings II.

*A concept that didn't really come about for another 300 years or so after the film is set, but who cares, Paul Giamatti owns.

The Crimson Rivers AKA Les Rivires Pourpres has a really cool fight scene. It features a cop, played by Vincent Cassel (who really can throw down), confronting two neo-nazis, played by two kickboxing champs. It's furious and quite believable. I could only find a clip from the German dub, but here it is:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z8wSvEnrGMg


And here's (part of) the climactic shootout from L.A. Confidential. Really tense and atmospheric. They even pay attention to how much ammo the protagonists have, which adds to the tension.

For me it has to be the 1990 Cyrano de Bergerac.

Its worth finding the whole movie if you can if only for the scene above and ones like this. Basically any scene where Cyrano has any extended dialog is great.

I'm really amused by how homoerotic some of this fight scene is. 0:52, as the title character stares deep into his victim's eyes and plunges the knife into his body, and the "I'm only shooting him because I can't have you" look at 1:40. There's no way that wasn't intentional.

Pretty much anything with Lateef Crowder is pretty cool: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3mKdFyx4LVE

The train fight with Robert Shaw in From Russia With Love is awesome. They tried to imitate it in a few later Bond movies, but never did it quite as well. It's so stark, and particularly brutal for being 1963. It was also a real game-changer in terms of how action sequences were shot and edited at the time

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1DyfgdXt9dU



On Her Majesty's Secret Service is a much better Bond movie than most people give it credit for. I mean, Lazenby is not good, but he pulls off the action bits, and it's otherwise pretty solid. I'm also a fan of Diana Rigg
