The Fighter packs a serious punch in the action stakes but for this week’s competition we’d like to know what your favourite film fight sequence of all time is. Are you a fan of CGI or do you prefer your movies raw and real? Does Tarantino’s Bride high-kicking her way through the Crazy 88 do it for you in Kill Bill? Perhaps Neo’s kung fu air-bending antics in The Matrix trilogy take your top spot? Or maybe you prefer your action to stay in the boxing ring ,with Sly Stallone’s Rocky or Russell Crowe’s Cinderella Man?
