I just signed up for Netflix, and I'm trying to get ideas on what to rent. Considering I'm an action film fanatic, I'm looking for the absolute best action scenes in a movie, and a somewhat tolerable storyline and acting, or are just so lame that they're funny. Here's just a few that I liked (not in any particular order):

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon
Gorgeous (Jackie Chan vs that American guy)
Equilibrium (gun-kata.....)
The Matrix and Reloaded (of course)
Fist of Legend
Kickboxer
Special Forces (Okay, so the film sucked, but what about the British guy's fight?)
The Replacement Killers
The Legend of Drunken Master
Iron Monkey (not the new one)
Shaolin Master Killer
Hard-Boiled
The Killer

Slow motion, swords, gunfights, kung-fu, it's all awesome if it's done right! =)

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

blade ?

edit: btw, that isnt my vote for best fight scene. its just the first thing that came to my mind when i read your criteria, and i figured it would fit in each of those catergories.

Deuce Bigalow: Claire?

i really enjoyed the scenes in replacement killers. altho i think the matrix lobby scene is probably the best gunfight scene ever made (there was a thread about this not too long ago)

I gotta second Blade. First one had some good sh!t going in terms of fight. Second one was too FX and wire-fu oriented for my taste.

Others might be:
Fight Club (naturally)
Shaolin Soccer (my room mate loves this one)
The Rock
Ronin
From Dusk Till Dawn
Desperado, perhaps El Mariachi (avoid Once Upon A Time in Mexico when it comes out if you've not seen it in theaters yet. No good at all compared to Desperado)

Play with your food! It's only being a good host, and it's not like anything else nice is going to happen to it.

Seeing as how I just saw this movie tongith for the first time and thought it rocked, I'll give a vote to Equilibrium.
Also Pirates of the Caribbean when it comes out.

Others.
Desperado.
The Way of the Gun
Once Upon a Time in China
Brotherhood of the Wolf

Or how about:

Terminator 2
Face/Off
A better Tomorrow (John Woo again)
The Rock
Rumble in the Bronx

'Tis a flesh wound!

I gotta mention the final fight between Obi Wan and Darth Maul in The Phantom Menace. That was some great stuff.
