The Action Fix: Happy Birthday Iko Uwais- Ranking His Top 5 Beatdowns!
By: John M Jerva
Today is Iko Uwais’ birthday and as I’m patiently awaiting the arrival of the Wu Assassins film Fistful of Vengeance which hits Netflix next week, I thought I’d celebrate this special day with counting down the five best scenes of fisticuffs from the human tornado. Plus I haven’t given him any love recently so it’s due. I usually hate to do top 5’s or 10’s because people just come at me with why I’m wrong but fuck it. I’m feeling tingly today so here you go! The most epic, brutal and unapologetic action sequences from the human tornado!
5) Iko Takes on Sunny Pang in HEADSHOT!
4) Iko Battles it Out with Joe Taslim in the Marathon Bout from The Night Comes For Us!
3) Iko Takes on The Machete Gang in THE RAID!
2) Iko Takes on Yayan Ruhian and Announces Himself in MERANTAU!
Number One! Iko and Cecep Arif Rahman Destroy a Kitchen with Brutal Style in THE RAID 2!
There you go! My five not to miss fight sequences from one of the most exciting stars in the genre. Iko Uwais is one of those performers that elevates anything he is in with his jaw dropping skills and here’s hoping he has many more years to deliver his insane and unrivaled fists and feet of fury!
