Drunken Master. Why? Because he was DRUNK and he still chopped people up like he was a Hibachi Chef. DRUNKEN MASTER is my final Answer.
Shaolin Executioner, it has a great story, it's rather historic, also has Pai Mei in it one of the most unforgettable kung-fu masters in all movies. the fight scenes are amazing and really hold true to the way of martial arts. It combines a bit of comedy by way of their son Wing Ding and a memorable love story and interpretation of vengeance and a woman's understanding that her husband must avenge his master. This movie also has a ton of great one liners in it and would actually be worth a remake with modern tech. followed by 18 Bronzemen, Sword of Doom, one of the best samurai movies ever, and most recently Ninja Assassin. I watched that movie back to back with several people who stopped over for movie night and then of course IP Man1.2.3
My bad and should have known this, but it was Bak Mei one of the surviving elders of Shaolin who also betrayed the temple and is of the Southern Wing Chun style bearing his name. Shaolin Executioner is based on what some consider actual events.
If no on e has seen a movie called True Legend, it's recent and really good, modern, violent and touching. Definitely one for any kung fu movie enthusiast.
Shaolin Soccer and Kung Fu Hustle... just coz they're both from my favorite actor/director
Ninja Assassin by Rain. I liked the action and humor;it makes the hero more human and closer to us.
Totally great movie!
Legend of Drunken Master... it's really funny and entertaining. ^_^
Definitely, most certainly "The Karate Kid (2010)". It had awesome acting, awesome affects, and an awesome plot
me myself & I
Once upon a time in china 1991
my favorite martial arts movie is forbidden kingdom because its a meeting of two greats like Jackie Chan and Jet Li fighting each other.also they have many epic fighting scenes. Jackie Chan is one of my favorites ever
I would have to say Kung Fu Hustle great storyline and actions superb movie watch it all the time.
I may be dating myself, but I really got excited about Se ying diu sau " Snake in the Eagles Shadow", 1978, with a young Jackie Chan. I couldn't understand a word they were saying because it was dubbed with English, but the action was encaptivating. I know I would also have to say all the Bruce Lee's and Tony Jaa's movies are great, but it doesn't hurt to remember a little old school!
Great Kung fu flick, one of the best!
My favorite Martial Arts film is: Shaolin Temple (1982) The film depicts the amazing history of the Shaolin Temple, the focal point for Chinese Martial Arts. I LOVE this film and it is my favorite because not only does it depict the history of the Shaolin Temple, but (in my opinion) the film has some of the best Martial arts fighting sequences throughout the film and I happen to be a BIG FAN of Jet Li!
My favorite martial arts film will have to be the Tsui Hark classic, A Chinese Ghost Story. I saw this movie (along with it's two sequels) years and years ago when I was little. It was at the time the first wu xia film I had ever seen and the idea of martial artist, sword play, and magic astounded me. Years later I encountered a region 1 copy of the dvd in a video store and rediscovered my love for wu xia films and asian cinema.
Fist of Fury... Bruce Lee was the pioneer and hard to argue against his martial arts!
Would have to say "Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon". Love all the mixture of things involved.
My favorite is Kung Pow Enter the Fist, the scene with the cow is stellar movie magic!!
My favorite martial arts movie of all time is Enter the Dragon starring Bruce Lee. Why? It was a true martial arts movie which provided quality acting and "real" martial arts. There were no green screens or cables, everything you saw was real. Now just because newer martial arts movies use computers to enhance the art, it doesn't necessarily make them bad, however when its over the top it can take away from the movie. So, Enter the Dragon, to me, was the best ever for its quality, truness to the sport, as well as impact on the martial arts movement in America.
Enter the Dragon, with Bruce Lee has to be one of the best if not the best Martial art movies ever made! I will say there are some great Martial arts actors out there currently, but none that owned the screen like Lee. He had a way to draw you into his acting and lets not forget that he could kick some serious tail. I bet if you asked all the currently Martial artist, actors or not, they will all say they respect and admire what he did for Martial act movies way before anyone else even thought to touch it!
I also forgot to say that December the 3rd is my 31st Birthday so this would be a AWESOME B-Day gift!!! lol
The Restless is my current fave. Good blend of fantasy and martial arts with awesome special effects.
"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."
