You say the They Live sequence isn’t realistic? Have you ever been in a knockdown-drag’em out fistfight with someone who was just as strong and determined as you were? I have and it was a lot like that fight and nearly as long. Fighting outside of a controlled event whether trained or untrained is a tiring, painful and sloppy business. When all was said and done, both guys looked and acted like they had been in a fight. That’s why the scenes from the Old Guy and Lethal Weapon 4 looked so good. If you’ve ever truly gotten your but kicked, you tend to lay there and hope they don’t hit you anymore. Even when you’re the victor, you breathing hard and in some measure of pain. I still think the They Live fight scenes is one of the best out there.
