Someone touched on a fight scene in the first Matrix film.  I don't have a film clip to give you but I found the best fight scene in the second of the Matrix trilogy, "Matrix Reloaded".  Neo, played by Keanu Reeves,  meets "The Oracle" , played by Gloria Foster, in the playground area.  When  "The Oracle" leaves the playground area Agent  Smith, played by Hugo Weaving, enters the playground area.  After a bit of chatter between the two adversaries another Agent Smith enters the conversation, and another, and another, and still another.  A fight ensues between Neo and too many to count Agent Smiths.  It must be around 40 and more seem to be coming from everywhere.  The special effects in this fight scene, slow motion to normal motion speed, defying gravity, Agent Smith's multiplying by the dozens,  are just breathtaking.   I wish I had the technical know-how to show the clip on this thread.  This fight scene in "Matrix Reloaded" is film-making and fight choreography at its extraordinarily best.

I'm too lazy to scroll back, so apologies if this one's been mentioned already, but I love the comic fight between Nicolas Cage and John Goodman and his partner in crime in Raising Arizona

Edit: It's pretty one-sided (until the very end), but there's also a great fight scene between Cage and Tex Cobb near the end of the movie.

I missed that one when (if) it was on as part of TCM's Bond tribute, but I included it in a package of about two dozen DVDs I got for my dad for Christmas either last year or the year before and watched it with my parents for the first time since childhood. That was a good fight scene.
