Who is your favorite character from any MA/action movie? and why?
e.g. Pai Mai, Nico, Jason Bourne etc.

My favorite is with out a doubt Mr Miyagi, a little old oriental man who can wipe the floor with 5 teenagers in just 12 seconds! And has the solution to every problem.
Even though you only have two arms you can still block with your forearms.

In no particular order:

1. Liam Neeson as Robert Roy MacGregor in Rob Roy

2. Harvey Keitel as the duel-happy Gascon officer, Lt Ferreau (sp), in Ridley Scott's first movie, The Duellists.

3. Charleton Heston as the troubled, sympathetic Norman knight, Sir Chrysagon de la Croix (sp), in the 1960s Medieval drama sleeper, The Warlord.

4. Toshiro Mifune as the good swordsman who chastises the creepy anti-hero of Sword of Doom, while cutting down his would-be assassins left and right.

5. Val Kilmer as "Doc" Holiday in Tombstone

6. Jerry Lopez as Subotai, "Thief and Archer", in Conan the Barbarian.
And the rapier blades, being so narrow and of so small substance, and made of a very hard temper to fight in private frays... do presently break and so become unprofitable. --Sir John Smythe, 1590
