American martial arts / action movie where end fight is on a roof top

Tools    





I'm looking for the name of an American (at least I think it's American, it's definitely not Asian anyway) martial arts film, or action movie with martial arts elements. I think it was in the 1980s. The final fight sequence was on top of a building. I remember it being quite violent and someone may have gotten their head crushed or slammed with a piece of brick or thrown into a pile of bricks maybe.
PS: It's not the movie Revenge of the Ninja which end fight is on a roof top also. It was not ninjas fighting in the movie I am thinking of.



Possibly way off the mark, but as you say it's not Asian, one film is springing to mind, and that is Remo: Unarmed and dangerous? Otherwise known as Remo: The Adventure begins.

I did also think of Jet Li The Master 1989. Possibly also known as Dragon Fight.

Thank you for the reply!
I looked up the three films you mentioned and checked them out, but unfortunately it's none of them. I am not entirely sure but it seems the fight sequence at the end just had two people fighting each other on top of the building and not a bunch.
One scene stands out which involved someone's skull or face getting hit / smashed with a piece of brick or slammed into a pile of bricks.
The film felt very North American.



Not american but bits of that sound like District B13.

Thanks for the tip. I looked up the title but all I found was a film from 2004, is that the one you meant? The one I saw was way before the year 2000, I'm 100% sure. And the style seemed very much like a mid to late 1980s movie, possibly early 90s (but I'm almost certain the film was made in the 80s).

Yes that was the one. Ill have a wee think about the one youre after. There are lots of folk on here who are great with films so im sure that someone will know it :-)



Another fight scene is jackie chans who am i which was in 1998. There was a big figt scene with jackie up against two people and one bit inthink has jackie thowing/using bricks.

It was definitely not Jackie. I happen to be a fan of his films up until around 2000, so I would have remembered if he was in it. :-)
The film I'm thinking of was more like a b-action / martial arts film and the fight was more brutal and crude than (and nowhere near as fast paced as) something seen in a Hong Kong or Jackie Chan/Jet Li/etc movie.

This sounds similar to a movie I was trying to find and cannot remember. The movie I am thinking of, I believe was also from the 80's or early 90's And I'm almost positive that the main character was white and spoke English. I seem to remember a scene where he was training (martial arts) on a rooftop of a mid rise or high rise building and it was during dusk with an orange-ish colored sky. Do you remember this in the movie you're speaking of?

Could it be the 1989 film Rooftops? The ending took place on a rooftop and there was martial arts in it. The lead character played by Jason Gedrick had infused capoeira in his fight repetoire.
