* The church brawl in ''Film/KingsmanTheSecretService'': It closes the second act and it's the longest fight in the movie, featuring the most complex choreography, the most careful editing work (to make it look like a oner) and it has kickass background music. It's also the most violent scene, being the hardest aversion to BloodlessCarnage in the movie. That Galahad [[spoiler:[[WhamShot dies]]]] right afterwards only cements it.

* The Red Circle shootout in ''Film/JohnWick''. Coming almost exactly in the middle of the movie, John tracks down Iosef to a nightclub, and when Iosef tries to escape, John kills off a small army of mooks while chasing after him. John uses a stylized combination of hand-to-hand combat and GunFu to dispatch his opponents incredibly quickly with headshots and double-taps, all while [[WouldNotShootACivilian never hitting a single bystander in the crowded club]], fully cementing his reputation as TheDreaded. It also marks the point where John begins hunting Iosef in earnest, rather than simply preparing to do so.

TheCenterpieceSpectacular is a point in a story that is certainly not the climax, but it is situated during the middle of the story or sometimes even the beginning to really get their attention. You can usually identify it as being the sequence ''everyone'' is talking about, and that is usually because this sequence is the work's CrowningMomentOfAwesome.

The placing of TheCenterpieceSpectacular can vary wildly, though it is never the climax. If this sequence happens towards the beginning of the story, it can overlap with an EstablishingCharacterMoment. In early Act 2 it is intended to get the plot flowing fast. In late Act 2 it is a set-up for the climax.

Although the climax is also a huge spectacle, the Hong Kong fight is the defining action scene of the film and delivers most of the monster vs. robot carnage the film was designed around.
