"I really didn't want to do it," Bana told Empire."It was just short of finding an illegal bare-knuckle fight somewhere."

Howeverthe actor watched as men pummeled each other into semi-consciousness. 

"I think it was about pure,unadulterated rage. About being exposed to something very, very primal,"the actor said of Lee's field trip. "Therewere some specifics that I wouldn't like to mention that Ang wanted me to payattention to. Interesting, then, but not something I'm in any real hurry to seeagain."
