Favorite ‘hand-to-hand-combat’ action movies

What are some of your favorite ‘hand-to-hand-combat’ action movies?

Can be from Hollywood or foreign language, A or B grade. All are welcome as long as most of the action doesn’t involve guns or superpowers.

I will start with couple of my all-time favorites -

The Raid: Redemption



The Raid 2

Invasion USA (1985). Might not be my favorite, but this line by Chuck is a classic; “If you come back in, I'll hit you with so many rights you'll be begging for a left.”

I dig Steven Segal's fight scenes, as they are not drawn out in lengthy slug fests, such as the Daredevil series. He ends things quickly and leaves the bad guys, if not completely dead, severely broken.

Love Chocolate, The One, Ip Man. Jet Li in general is quite good. Unleashed is great.
