Movie Fight Scene Tropes That Need To Die

Movie fight scenes are exciting to watch but they can also be quite formulaic and predictable, and it often seems like the writers just give up and pull tropes out of a hat when it comes time to write a fight scene into the script.

But there are certain fight scene tropes that cartoonist JHALL cannot stand and I tend to agree with him, especially the one where the main character masters a martial art in less than a month.

Do you think people would spend their lives mastering a martial art if some yutz "chosen by fate" could learn all the ins and outs in a few weeks? And what would be the point of mastering a martial art if some heroic little girl can still kick you straight through a wall whenever she wants?

Come on Hollywood, try harder!
