15. PAULA PATTON VS. LEA SEYDOUX IN MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE – GHOST PROTOCOL (2011)

It’s hard for a fight scene to stick out above the rest in such an action-packed film, but Complex cover girl Paula Patton unleashes a flurry of feminine fury during her violent catfight in Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol. From getting slammed through tables, to almost being stabbed by a corkscrew, Patton and Lea Seydoux provide one of the film’s best moments in this scene.

What makes this fight stand out among the rest is the fact that it’s choreographed with the same energy and brutality as anything seen in The Bourne Identity or Casino Royale. These are two women who fight like trained martial artists and the end result is a fight that completely steals the show.
