Self Defense/movie realism


Just wanted your opinion on how realistic this scene is.

How likely was it that he could fight his way out of the group like that. Does movie violence nag you a lot? thanks!

It's okay until about 0:39 then it devolves into Hollywood being attacked one at at time.

His buddy showing up and taking one of them out from behind would have been more realistic. Then each turn to face a remaining one.

Just dropping one dude would have left him being attacked by three

I've taught police and military both internationally and within the US. I've lectured at universities, academies and done countless TV, radio, newspaper and magazine interviews. I'm a professional speaker on crime avoidance and personal safety. And I am an expert witness recognized by the US court system. My bio is at My abridged CV (Curriculum Vitae) is at
