I'd have to say Enter the Dragon coz Bruce Lee was kick-ass in that flick!

Skywa|ker
mmmm....


I'm torn between Jet Li's "Fist of Legend", Jackie Chan's "Legend of Drunken Master", and Yuen Woo-ping's "Iron Monkey". Love all three...

Type0
yes all those are awesome movies. id say fist of fury was a better bruce lee movie, personaly. My favourite kung fu movie was once upon a time in china with jet li, drunken master is also an absolute classic. Btw can anyone tell me this kung fu movie, where this guy shows off his skills by pushing 2 people(one either side) away, jumping up n landing on the shulders pulling a split, and at the same time pulling out to fans?

Once Upon A Time In China and Enter The Dragon

ladygrim
Kung pow enter the fist ... not really kung foo movie but is based round them and very funny

WindDancer
There are a lot of classics out there. Enter the Dragon is mostly famous because it was done by WB. Unfortunally other great classics don't get breaks like Enter the Dragon got. Is hard for me to choose just one. So I'll just say MOTFG.

Well, not ULTRA gory, but violent nonetheless. It is, however, one of the most highly acclaimed martial arts flicks of all time. And the starring weapon, the flying guillotine, is classic!

Impediment
Kung Pow is a hilarious flick, but I wouldn't call it "kung-fu" or even "martial arts". I say more along the lines of spoof.

JacopeX
Yeai ll put Kung Pow in my list of favorite kung fu movies.

Kung Pow isn't a kung-fu flick, G. It's far too silly to be.

I just watched "Kung-Fu Hustle" a couple days ago. It was kinda corny but the fight scenes were superb.

Fanboy
Ya know I was wondering why everyone stopped posting in the Iron Monkey and the Martial Arts films forum was it because I supposedly know alot about martail arts films more then the others in there?

choicecutz
when i read the comments on this forum it makes me realize that, alot of people have not even mentioned some of the greatest kung fu titles of all time. no one hardly mentions the shaw brothers movies. well, here are some of my favs. after you see these movies then you will know what good kung fu moveis are, after reading the posts, i felt compelled to genreate this list so as to educate people on what good kung fu movies are

1) death chamber
2) shaolin vs wu tang
3) tai chi master
4) iron monkey
5) storm riders
6) shaolin vs ninja
7) enter the dragon
8) legend of the liquid swords
9) once upon a time in china
10) 5 deadly venoms

choicecutz
there are also many great movies, master killer, hero, i went back and read all the posts, most people on here have no clue that is pretty sad, that guy eraserhead knows what's up, when it comes to kung fu movies, anyone who refernces kung pow as a good movie is a idiot, if you think kung pow is a good kung fu movie, please watch the entire list i generated, and eraserheads list then you will know whats up.

Thanks! I never heard of Blade of Fury. What is that about?

There is some other Shaw Brothers movies in particular that I like, but I just can't remember their names.

Others I can think of putting up there are:

Fist of Legends
Swordsman II

Avenger2.0
I'm a big bruce lee fan and reckon that all 4 of his movies are champion
(Enter The Dragon, Way of the Dragon, The Big Boss and Fist Of Fury)
But im also a big Fan of Jet Li like his movie Kiss Of The Dragon.
The Returner is Also a pretty good movie though it more gun fighting

MysteryRidah
I'm a big jackie chan fan, so jackie chan gets my vote and then bruce lee.

JacopeX
the most violent kung fu movie of all time

The Story of Ricky

Yes this movie was so bloody and goary, i threw up once and im not much of a person to get grossed out. Yes homes, you gotta see this joint! This was made in hong Kong and rated NC-17 for its violence. Its rated R in the us because the fuggin dumbasses here edit shit. Stupid american censorship!

YES! Another Venoms fan. big grin

The Shaw Brothers "Venoms" films were many, as the main actors who portrayed the Venoms also starred in almost 20 other films sometimes alongside each other and other times as adversaries. The most well known is Kuo Chui (Lizard venom) who was also Mad Dog in Chow Yun Fat's "Hard Boiled". Mad Dog was the killer with the eye patch in the hospital.

Anyhow, while the Venoms films are mostly nonsense, the choreography was right on the mark. For serious film, Enter The Dragon was the big one. Bruce was at the top of his game and sadly died shortly after, but heleft us one HELL of a movie!

xkalybr
Drunken Master 2 with Jackie Chan is an amazing martial arts film. Tremendous fight scenes and skills!!! rock

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon is a close second.

T.M
Enter the Dragon is by a far way better than any other martial arts movie IMO.

I'm kind of partial to Kiss of the Dragon w/ Jet Li, and Crouching Tiger/Hidden Dragon.

princegoku
enter the dragon for me, that is one of my 5 favourite films and i think it is the best martial arts film.

DarkWizard
Enter The Dragon

Impediment
Enter the Dragon is pure gold.

I have questions about two kung-fu/fighting flicks I have yet to see: Ong-Bak and Pit Fighter. Has anyone seen them and are they worth a damn? I'd kinda like to see them.

MildPossession
Ong Bak is worth seeing for the action, forget about the rest of the film, also there is a second film with Tony Ja in called Tom Yum Goong.

Have yet to see Pit Fighter, apparently the fight scenes are very brutal and excellent to watch.

Deano
eastern condors is class. mixes gun action with martial arts

RogerRamjet
oh gosh..there were so many

of course Bruce Lee's "Enter The Dragon" redefined the whole genre and maybe "Drunken Master" 1 and 2 which were excellent movies as far as i'm concerned...
i love "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" and "Hero" as well as the "A Chinese Ghost Story" Trilogy because they were something completley new back then.
One of the newer releases i kinda liked was Kung-Fu Hustle.
But there were some many classics...it's hard to pick out one and say that was the best of all...

cool 'Tom Yum Goong' is SOO good, i find the first part of the film to be a bit cheesy, but as soon as i got past the elephant = man's best friend (in thailand) it was all cool.

The sound fx were better in Ong Bak than in this one. but amazing fights, seemed almost to be non stop. Is there a north american release?

Motoko Sama
I don't know about being the absolute "Best of All Time", but Sha Po Lang is an amazing movie, though the ending made me cry. Donnie Yen had an excellent part. I'd say it's probably the best of the 2000's so far!

As for "Best of All Time", The Chinese Connection and Enter the Dragon are clearly at the top. Fist of Legend is another good movie as every knows.

HI2GA
One thing I have found in watching a number of old school to modern martial art movies is that often it's hard to find a GOOD martial art film with a good story. Favorites I would recommend to anyone who likes amazing fight scenes coupled with a good or amusing story: (not in any particular order...I love all these movies)

Iron Monkey...I can watch this one over and over...(Donnie Yen is just too cool)

Wing Chun...Michelle Yeoh needs to do another one! She outshines Donnie Yen in this one.

Seven Swords...Very cool!

House of Flying Daggers...Beautiful love story. I LOVED this movie, although most guys may not.

then, of course, there are Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and HERO.

Stephen Chow's Kung Fu Hustle is HILARIOUS and cool for laughs...Shaolin Soccer is ok.

I am always looking for other recommendations for classics or modern greats...so far most of the ones mentioned I have seen. smile

Ultraman Baltan

FIST OF LEGEND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Trolt
Yeah Fists of Legend has an absurd amount of fight scenes that are ALL good to see, from the class-room defence to the show-down with the general.

OUATIC II is one of the best, not only because of the action but there is also philosophy in there too. But then again, some people get it just to get an adrenaline -high smile

Nikac
I would have to say that the best kung fu movie i've ever whatched is Snake In The Eagle's Shadow. KICKS ASS

G-Mafia
Cantonen Iron Kung Fu & The Victim with Leung Kar Yan. Also, a bunch I watched on Samurai Sunday.

kung fu movie, where this guy shows off his skills by pushing 2 people(one either side) away, jumping up n landing on the shulders pulling a split, and at the same time pulling out to fans?...

I loved Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon. I also loved the Four Assassins. The 36th Chamber or as it was known in america The Master Killer. Bloody Avenger was very good. Most definitely Master of the Flying Guilotine.

Kazenji
I did'nt like Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon just don't like that fantasy bullshit kung-fu.

moonknight11
Does anybody remember this movie were the villain sends loads of kung-fu masters to assassinate the protagonist(I think it was bruce lee) but they all lose. I remember he foght this old guy/young guy duo and beat them. Also at the end the villain "let's" him get away then shoots him. Please I need to know.

moonknight11
I think I was talking about way of the dragon though I'm not sure. Oh Fearless was very good.

I am fond of king fu movies and love to watch them.My all time best movie is the Legend of drunken Master.The hero of the film is Jackie Chan.

alik83
Please tell me the name of this kung fu movie, which is my great childhood memory! The story and highlights:
There's a main guy character and his brother, he practices kicking big stones into the target in the beginning of the movie, and they armrestle together, than I beleive his brother is killed by one of bad bosses. He also has a sister that will be kidnapped later and an old teacher/master who threw small metal balls against his enemies.
There are 2 bad bosses (i beleive karate and aikido?), who also kidnap his sister, and in the end the hero fights them both after being trapped in the martial arts school. They use some extending stripes of metal against him, but he gets them between his feet, rolls on the ground and those stripes break. At the end he kicks one of them out the window and kills the other one with his finger, sticking it into his body, and there's blood.
Also a lot of fighting in the middle of the movie is in the autumn forest.
That's all I could remember, any clues?

The Sensei
Ah my misguided kung fu fans, let The Sensei hit you with some good ones that you have either never seen or heard of. And keep in mind that I only own the good shyte. That guy that said he owns over 350, some of those movies were complete trash.

For those of you mad enough to know of it, a friend and I discovered one of the freakiest, goriest and generally ill-minded Kung Fu films of all time. Rikky-Oh. Watch it all on youtube, it is absolutely kick-ass amazing. I'll give you a little hint at how bad it is. In the final fight scene, the amount of fake blood used stained Rikky's body for 8 days. D:

Hey guys by any chance do any of you guys remember a kung fu movie that has 3 main guys and each of them have a power I think the powers are wind water and fire or something like that. They have to fight some bad guys and I think 2 of them die and 1 of them gets hurt bad but heels and then kicks ass I think lol. I saw it like 4 years ago but it anybody remembers that movie PLEASE let me know the name of it please its been killing me. thanks guys

BuddasPalm
Iron Mokey is kick ass, Drunken Master is kick ass, Bruce Lee and Jet Li movies are kick ass, oh and i know its not kung fu but 7 Samurai has to go in the kick ass catagorie and Sonny Chiba.

Anyway, I need some help, Im trying to remember the name of a movie I seen when I was a kid, Now the star of the movie was Bruce Lee but not the real Bruce Lee, There was a guy with an eye patch and he carried daggers and I think a couple of other guys but they had teamed up with fake Bruce Lee to fight some master. When they fight the master he is really strong and they can't beat him because he snorts something from what looks like one of those mist bottles you shove in your nose. Eventually they beat him and the guy with the eye patch gets killed. This movie was an old one and its been in my mind lately and I have to know what the hell its called if anyone knows whats its called please post it up.

Here's a list of my favorite top 10 ( However, not all of 'em are foreign):


10. Karate Kid/ Matrix/ Game Of Death - Okay, I'm gonna cheat here & put these 3 titles tied for 10th place. Despite all of the martial arts in 'em, I don't necessarily regard them specifically as full martial arts films. But, b'cuz it's still impossible not to notice all of the "kung fu fighting", plus add on top of that the high level of enjoyment I got from watching 'em, & there you have the reason why I felt the need to include 'em bunched together on this list.
The Karate Kid, I view more as a rite of passage & as a sports movie. I see the Matrix as a neo-special-effects pioneer film that contains some great martial arts action. And Game of Death, is just part of a movie, with the last 15 minutes being the "meat" of it. I love the concept that Bruce came up for this. Plus he looks almost like a superhero in the the yellow suit.

9. Heroic Trio - While I realize that this isn't really considered a maverick of this field, but for me, the charisma between these well-rounded & distinct characters was enuff to hook me in. Plus, I defy any one not to like the villianous Kau & his "skull-cage" on a chain, which, when thrown, encircles a victim’s head and decapitates them. And, I LOVE Maggie Cheung as the Thief-Catcher. One my all-time favorite female characters on film. IMO, she deserved an entire movie based on this one character alone.

8. Drunken Master - The idea of a martial arts type of fighting that would unbelievable, in within the context of the "kung-fu" movie world. That is, unless it was a Jackie Chan movie. Then,
it might seem possible.
Heck, I bet I could fight like that too.
If I was drunk.

7. Iron Monkey - Before there were the House of Flying Daggers, Heroes & the Crouching Tigers, there was the Iron Monkey.
A film that reigned on the creative & sometimes, even elegantly beautiful martial arts stunts that seemed to serve not only as the action that is the meat of such films, but also to the actual telling of the story.
Monkey see, monkey fu.

6. Kill Bill - Only two words can be used to describe this movie: Bad @ss.
Not only is this Quentin's homage to martial arts flix, but it also includes homages to anime & those funky, grainy 70's Bruce Lee's wannabe's that made us laugh with their unsynchronized voice-overs, jagged camera movements & b-level musical sound effects. And yet, he was able to combine all this in a manner that was just plain...
well....
... bad-@ss.
Oh, & by the way,
out of sheer curiosity, I just performed the Five Point Palm Exploding Heart technique on myself, just to see if it works. Now, as I post this, I'm taking the 5 steps forward, to see if anything will actually happ

Hi I was wondering about a movie I saw maybe 10 years ago. The story is something about this guy who get totally beaten up while protecting some girl and then he falls down this gigantic cliff but survives. I think he loses his one arm and attaches a giant jagged sword( which is broken in half) to his arm. And then there is this character who is a woman who flies around in a big pink lotus flower or maybe it was a lantern.
Does this ring any bells? if so please would you be nice and say the title of the movie! thanks m8s

Hi guys,
I just started this small blog where I post some of my favorite kung-fu fights from movies. You can download them as good quality, standalone-compatible avi files.
It's all free, of course, no scam. I am just a big lover of movies in general and of the martial arts genre in particular. Just want to share with you my favorite scenes.
Used to be I had a big collection but then I lost them all in a hdd crash so now I am starting all over again sad

The whole movie was shit. Luckily they filmed the final showdown before Bruce Lee died, so we have that at least. And it was an awesome finale, don't you agree?

P.s.: talking about Game of Death

For me it's hard to say...

The only thing I can think of when it comes down to story, dramatics via acting, and choreography are from Jackie Chan and Jet Li.

A New Police Story and Fearless captivated me more out of everything else i've seen. And these were versions from china before they were edited/distributed to north america.

Guys can you please help me find one movie I was looking for so many years now, I saw it only when I was a little kid, but only here is what stuck in my mind from it. The movie starts with one guy walking near the forrest, or rather just on some sand, and sudenly he is attact by two killers, who came right from the underneath the sand with knifes I believe, one after another, and they both were ordered to kill him, and they did, so then starts the real movie, and those assasins are shown maybe few more times durint the movie, but the main actor later kills them.
Now it's tough for me to find that movie cose I don't know who the main actor was, I don't know how the movie goes after that first scene, but I do know it's definitely not bruce lee, nor it is a jackie chan movie...

Talking about best kung-fu movies of all times, I will say Drunken Master and Snake in the Eagles Shadow by Jackie, I can watch those two movies forever
P.S. I really hope someone can help me with the movie I'm looking I would really appreciate that.

I just can't beleive that nobody has bothered to mention The Avenging Warriors of Shoalin. How can you not love that movie? Even the villain were cool. The fight scene at the in with the four heroes vs the four villians with each of them specialized in their own exotic weapon. To me this is the best kung fu movie of all time.
