List and descriptions of Belly-Punching scenes in the movies.
Great thanks to Bellylord, for being the first to make a "BP in the movies" database. Some of the scene descriptions below are form his site.
Just indicates how "good" the punching scenes are. You have to know:
1. The rating is not only made by the punches/kicks quantity in the movie. It considers the realism of the scene, the camera angles, the suffering scene etc. So, a movie containing, for example, 30 bellypunches not necessarily deserves the maximum rating, while one with a single hit could reach it.
2. I'll try to be as objective as possible but, if you disagree on a certain movie rating, please le me know.
NR= Not rated, I haven't seen it personally.
