I was messing around on YouTube last night and stumbled upon what just might be the best martial arts fight scene ever. It’s from Wheels on Meals, a cult classic featuring Sammo Hung, Biao Yuen, a young Jackie Chan, and Benny “The Jet” Urquidez. Some of these other names might be familiar, but if you’ve never heard of Benny check him out. Though his official fight record might be a little embellished, he’s really an amazing martial artist.
This fight scene definitely has to be in the running for Best Ever. It has amazing choreography, a nasty copped version of Michael Jackson’s “Beat It” that reminds me of Undercover Brother (strangely can’t find the fight scene on the Internet), and a shot of Urquidez KICKING OUT THE FLAMES FROM CANDLES!
Check it out! Does this scene get your vote for best martial arts fight scene ever? If not, let us know which scene you like best!
