Seems to me that most of the recent crop of big-budget action fest movies have been victims of the same infuriating editing technique. Every time there’s a fight, be it fist fight, gun fight, karate fight, or magic kung-fu fight, the edits are so damn quick that it’s impossible to keep track of the action. It’s been a while since I really…felt a fight scene in a film.
Has anyone else noticed this? Can anyone suggest any films I might watch to re-assure myself that it’s possible to do an on-camera fight well?
