The YouTube title for this clip from the 1988 martial arts-comedy Tiger on Beat is "Awesome chainsaw fight," which I feel is slightly redundant. I mean, if it's a chainsaw fight, I think you're pretty safe in assuming it's going to be awesome. Obviously, there could technically be boring chainsaw fights โ€” the duellists could just wave them around listlessly or something โ€” but I'd think those would be the ones that need to be specified as such. Indeed, I confident in declaring "awesome" should be considered the default adjectival assumption whenever you hear the words "chainsaw fight," and it's up to the non-awesome chainsaw fights โ€” if there are any โ€” to label themselves otherwise.
