    Teq and I have both touched on the issue in the MMA forum...

    Too many bulky guys with tattoos are allowed to peacefully socialize these days. A couple guys have tried to fill the void, but to no avail. The Rock's fight scenes are lame. There's a movie version of the video game Tekken coming out that has fighting badass Cung Le, but I prefer to see unsuspecting rednecks getting tossed around.

    I think that a movie based on the DC comics character Lobo could give beat em ups a shot in the arm. I'd have to check Wiki to be sure, but I'm pretty sure the guy doesn't even have a moral agenda, and he only kicks the shit out of people because he's annoyed by the continuing effeminization of American Culture.

    lol...

    Steven Seagal movies are usually based on a strong moral agenda, right?

    I'm just trying to fully understand what you're asking for.

    and don't sugarcoat it - you're just trying to split hairs.

    but since that sentence has a hyphen, you'll just read "and don't sugarcoat it."

    but if the rock's fight scenes are lame, (<see what i did there?) you could find consolation in the fact that at least he has personality. steven seagal is mehhhhhhhhhhh, i know we've all seen the steven seagal emotion chart.
