Best Action Scene Ever?


(YouTube Link)


YouTube user masfher says that this clip from the 1985 Bollywood production Alluda Majaka is the best action scene ever. I won't make such a definitive statement, but it is quite exciting and wildly over-the-top unrealistic. Especially the horse-sliding scene at 2:07. You don't know what horse-sliding is? That's because this action hero invented it.

1:37 made me say out loud, "did I just see that?" and I had to rewind to confirm. I could make some lame testicular pun here, but I just want to give it up for that idea: brilliant.

The music is familiar, am I thinking of Terminator 2?

John said...

I can't figure what precisely happened at 1:37. Did they actually have the hero defeat those two guys with his testicles alone, or was he injured?

Johnny Cat said...

If injured, he didn't act like it. And it must be difficult shopping in that store that has glass walls in every aisle.

Look at 2:38. They tie down the legs of the horses and make them charge... I'm no member of PETA but I'd say that's a little harsh.

I have a hard time enjoying any action sequence employing "running W's" Outlawed in the states for decades, it was a particularly violent technique for tripping horses. You see them here around the 2:40 mark. Sad as hell.

So...PETA only cares about American animals? Cause those poor horses got shafted bigtime. Guess there's no SPCA over there.

That being said, the horse slide is a truly monumental moment in WTFness. I'd like to see Aragorn on Hasufel or one of the Na'vi on a dire horse pull that one off.

That guy is in cuffs, just to give the Po-po a fighting chance.

Got it! Music is from the movie Speed. Took me all day.

Yeah, the horse abuse is kind of sickening. Aside from that, I really gotta get me one of them jumping jeeps. Apparently there is some button or control which will make them jump over a car on a flat road.

Nonsensical blocked gridlocked empty cars? Check.

Vehicles leaping into the air on demand? Check.

Cars and motorcycles accelerating full throttle into a stopped vehicle for no reason? Check.

Sickening animal abuse? Check.

Full length plate glass covering market doorways? Check.

Sequenced explosions for no reason whatsoever? Check

Bus with a horse-sized plate glass rear door? Check.

Horrible. Bad editing. Stolen music. Ridiculous "Dukes of Hazards"-style jumps and cruelty to horses and riders as well.

Hollywood westerns used to wires to get horses to fall, which led to a lot of fatalities, both on horses and to the riders, before they were banned.

I gotta say, I'm not a fan of PETA or their wacky extremism, but watching horses get their necks broken bums me out enough that I can't enjoy this.
