The best action sequences of 2007?
IFC News chose David Cronenberg's Eastern Promises as containing one of the most intense and blood-splattered fight scenes, where Viggo Mortensen is cornered by two assassins in a bathhouse.
Die Hard 4.0's sequence involving Bruce Willis as John McClane fighting a jet with his own car was noted for its overblown but hugely enjoyable action scenes, while The Bourne Ultimatum's rooftop chase was also singled out for its levels of "nigh-unbearable" tension.
Hot Fuzz rounded off the list, with its homage to Bad Boys II at the village shootout being singled out. The movie, which stars Nick Frost and Simon Pegg, did what the two actors do best - take the mickey and have a lot of fun while doing it.
Fans wanting to compile their own list of best action scenes could also check out titles such as Transformers, Death Proof or 3:10 to Yuma.
