Cool Videos: The 100 Best Punches in Films

08.16.2011

It never ceases to amaze me how people make these kind of massive supercut videos, but as long as they keep slaving away, I'll keep posting them.

This one counts down the top 100 "strikes" in cinema history, which implies not ALL of them are punches, but more or less. A few obviously come to mind ("Motherfucker! You hit me in the ear!"), but the rest will be a refresher course in movie violence history.

Snatch

How come Snatch ain't in the list? That punch that sends Brad Pitt flying backwards in slo-mo should definitely be on this list.. not to mention Brad's own punches in the movie.

How could you have left out the damn two fisted double swinging punch from the newest Indiana Jones movie? That was about the only redeeming thing about that film.

Three Big Misses

1) Sarah Conner (T2) coming at the camera and smacking that orderly douche across the face with the mop handle....just edited awesome.
2) Hannibal Lechter (Silence of the Lambs) beating the guard and just getting off on it
3) DeNiro (The Untouchables) and the baseball bat scene.

I just kept waiting for these...and they never came.

Very misleading.

You don't call this "100 greatest punches" when there are other violent strikes and fucking weapons. This list fails completely.

I was wondering when Bruce Lee and Van Damme would show up. But they used the wrong clips for both.
They should have used the climatic punch that Van Damme delivers to Bolo Yeung's nuts in the movie Bloodsport.
For Bruce Lee, should have been the punch he delivers in the movie Fist Of Fury(?), where he punches the guy so hard, Bruce Lee's arm is still shaking and he has the craziest fucking look on his face.

Glad they didn't forget Hermione punching Malfoy in Prisoner of Azkaban. Thought they might have, but they got it at 28, nice!

Pretty good...

But one of the greatest punches in film history was not included which is Cat punching out Coffee in THE ABYSS.
You could feel that punch it was so fucking hard.
Another thing I don't understand is why a slap is considered a punch.

There's some repeats on the list, but I've seen 60 of the movies featured in that clip.

Some they missed:

Butch punching out The Gimp in Pulp Fiction...or just when he's wailing on Marcellus's face (thats pride...fuckin' wit yu)

K.O. on Matthew Patel - Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World.

Indiana Jones accidentally slugging the cocktail waitress in Temple of Doom.
