I am going to make up a sentence,

(ex) I like fights or the fighting in action movies.

I am not sure which one fits better. Thanks for helping me.

You can say any of the following, depending on how specific you want to be:

I like fights in action movies.
I like the fights in action movies.
I like the fighting in action movies.

("I like fighting in action movies" would be ambiguous – it could be taken to mean that you like performing the fighting.)
