Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li (2009)
Never seen this outrageously bad
The Karate Kid (1984)
This iconic fight scene starts in a bathroom and Ralph Macchio’s Daniel LaRusso is wearing a shower costume, so it definitely counts! After pranking the no good Cobra Kai bully Johnny Lawrence in the school bathroom, Daniel heads into the wilds of Reseda where he gets attacked by Johnny and his gang before Mr Miagi saves the day.
Rush Hour 2 (2001)
Though it arguably takes place in more of a bathhouse than a bathroom, this is still a radical fight scene full of half naked dudes tussling with the G.O.A.T. Jackie Chan. After attempting to pick up Ricky Tan in a bathhouse, Chris Tucker finds himself at the mercy of Tan’s henchmen. Luckily, he has Jackie Chan on hand to help as they run through those bathhouse boys like it’s nothing.

X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009)

Eastern Promises (2007)
Including what may be the best bathroom fight scene of all time, Cronenberg’s bleak look at Russian mobs and sexual exploitation is a tough watch, but has an absolutely killer performance from Viggo Mortensen at its center. Mortensen is also at the center of this nude bathhouse brawl. It’s incredibly choreographed, stunningly violent, and a wonder to watch.
Do you have a fave bathroom brawl we missed? Love seeing Mortensen stabbing people whilst naked? Is
