My favorite martial arts movie is Chocolate (2008). The movie is an import from Thailand and was directed by Prachya Pinkaew who also directed Ong-Bok and The Protector and stars
Yanin "Jeeja" Vismistananda
Mine would easily be Kung Pow!
I was about to lean for "Enter the Dragon" but remembered that "Five Fingers of Death" (King Boxer ) was the movie that started the Kung Fu fever in North America. So, definitely "Five Fingers of Death" has the merit of braking ground for everybody else that follow. It was also used by Tarantino as template for few scenes of his famed "Kill Bill" movies.
any Shaw Brotherd movies Five Deadly Venoms kid with golden arms,Crippled Avengers(Return of 5 Deadly Venoms) ,Dirty Ho ,Masked Avengers and Gorden li,Fist of the White Lotus
five fingers of death.
past the date, but i love kill bill vol 1. all sorts of great sword fighting and doesnt take itself too seriously.
my favorite movie is from the shaw brothers 5 elements ninjas.this movie is ninja classic .
my favorite movie is way of the warrior and ninja assassin
I would have to say Ninja Assasin and because of the special effects
Love the movie Ong Bak!
Enter the Ninja with Master Sho Kosugi has to be one of my favorite Ninja movies of all times. I was a student of Issanru Karate at the time and I switched to Aikido and Aido after I saw that movie because is was the closest I was going to get to ninjitsu in America at the time. Of course there is always Jackie Chan, Chow Yun Fat, Jet Li and the Original Bruce Lee and his son Brandon Lee (what a tragedy) The Forbidden Kingdom is one of my favorite modern stories because is has two of the greatest performers on one screen.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!!! Just loved this movie as a kid, seriously though, IP Man is one of my favorites, along with the Octagon, True Legend, and the Warlords (love Takeshi Kaneshiro and Jet Li) Was unsure of how the Warriors Way was going to turn out but I really loved it, glad I went to see it.
The Warrior Ways is the best fighting movie i seen
Best of the Best, hands down... the final fight between irl brothers Philip and Simon Rhee puts everything else to shame as far as framing and realism are concerned. It truly needs to be seen.
Mortal Kombat has to be the best martial arts movie ever. Its a Classic, Epic fight scenes, and Sub-Zero + Scorpion = the best Martial Artists anyone has known.
Kung Fu Hustler, awesome and funny ... first time that i saw it almost died laughing
My favorite martial arts movie would have to be Kung Fu Hustle just because it's an f-in hilarious movie.
Shogun Assassin 1, Hands down! WU-TANG B*****!!!!!
Bruce lee's enter the dragon may not be the best but certainly one of the greatest. It completely inspired the martial arts genre and ultimately re-invisioned the way asians were portrayed in american film- From short funny looking people- to invincible grandmasters of martial arts- so kudos to you Bruce Lee and your film Enter The Dragon.
The "Once Upon A Time In China" trilogy is a tour de force with Jet Li playing the lead and showing part of the life of the real martial arts hero Wong Fei Hung. The story is good, the sets are excellent and of course seeing Jet Li in a lot of action makes it worthwhile.
I have to go old school to the Shaw Brothers masterpiece "Come Drink With Me". Good storyline, great stunts and wire work and the introduction of Cheng Pei-Pei. You can see why she is a "natural" and came to be one of the best female martial arts stars.
There are a large number of excellent martial arts films out there, but my favorite still has to be "Circle of Iron", written by Bruce Lee and James Coburn, and starring Jeff Cooper, David Carradine, Christopher Lee, Eli Wallach, Roddy McDowall, and Erica Greer. The fight scenes are not of the calibre of many of the other greats, but this "Zen fairytale" explores some of the most fundamental philosophies of the martial arts world and does so in a fun and enjoyable way. Bruce has starred in much better fight films, but I think this movie is the best tribute to much of what he held dear about the martial arts.
My answer is 'Master Killer' also known as 'The 36th Chamber of Shaolin' 1978 Shaw Brothers production. As for why, for me it's the great story and the really interesting fight scenes. Check it out.
my favorite is "Hero"
"Welcome to the party, pal."
"I am serious... and don't call me Shirley."
"When am I gonna learn how to punch?"
"These go to eleven."
"Benjamin, have you ever been severely beaten about the face & neck?"
"Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming."
"You're gonna need a bigger boat."
"Jessica's got cable."
