Top 10 Scenes in Bloodsport
Not everything can be put in but these 10 are the most awesome.
10 scenes. 10 classic moments.
So on to the list Shingo!
#10 "OK USA!"
Why it kicks ass: Big goofy Chinese guy's line as he brings Dux and Jackson to the so called underground tournament is classic broken english.
#9 "That's why they call this thing Bloodsport kid."
Why it kicks ass: The opening fight establishes the Kumite as some serious hardcore human cock fighting. Kudos to the janitor getting a gold tooth as he cleans up the blood on the mat hence the line.
#8 "Yeah Franky!!! Yeah!!!"
Why it kicks ass: If this was a seeded tournament, Ray Jackson would be a solid #12 seed. But he easily disposes of his 1st opponent with a severe smash to the head then taunts Chong Li (bad move Ray). I mean how the hell did Ray Jackson get invited to the Kumite?
#7 "He's the American shithead that makes tricks with bricks"
Why it kicks ass: Hossein thinks he's so fuckin cocky trying to slap Janice and shit. But can Dux grab a coin from him before he closes his hand. Fuck no!
Fun note: Dux learns this trick from the fish in the pond training during the Tanaka montage.
#6 "I'll be in the airport in 2 days"
Why it kicks ass: Dux gets chased by Forest Whitaker and the other guy through boats all over Hong Kong in that cheesy 80's montage sort of way. The hilarious kicker at the end is classic.
#5 "Aren't you a little old for video games?"
Why it kick ass: It's Karate Champ! This goofy exchange between Dux and Jackson makes for a some classic trash talk. Awesome use of a 80s video game for foreshadowing!
#4 "You are not Japanese! You are NOT Tanaka!"
Why it kicks ass: It's an opening training montage! That's why. Whats more 80s than that?
#3 "Say It!!! Say It!!!!"
Why it kicks ass: Fuji dust, the referee jump kick, the 6 spinkicks, the Dux groan plus flashbacks!, Uncle. Nuff said.
#2 "Chong Li! Chong Li! Chong Li!"
Why it kicks ass: Chong Li becomes the unstoppable, ultimate evil when he kills his opponent and disrespects the Kokoruki elders. You so bad ass Chong Li!
#1 "Show us the Dim Mak"
Why it kicks ass: I mean c'mon now. This is the pinnacle of the movie. The judge asks for the "bottom one" and Dux obliges. When have you EVER seen somebody smash a brick with their focused energy?? Of course the Dim Mak later failed against E. Honda's chubby fat ass, but hey at least the Dim Mak got Dux into the tournament right?
