I only really liked Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon because you got to know the characters more. Lots of great fighting, quality camera work and a very good cast of people. I hope they make another quality Kung Fu flick, I'd definately go see it.

I feel like if the movie is too cheesy I cant find myself getting too involved unless they overdose on the special effects, then Im there lol

i like jet li but he always uses damn wires which takes away from his martial arts i believe, some of his older films are great and kiss of the dragon was great, and excluding the gran daddy of martial arts (bruce lee) jackie chan has the most entertaining martial arts movies and yeah police story was great police story2 was god but not as good as the first i loved supercop and operation condor, if anyone can find the movie called Jingrak the wushu lord, Its spectacular they use 12 different wushu masters in the filming of that movie, every action in that movie is an actuall wushu techinique, and if you know what wushu is you know its some crazy shit

Rogue Jedi- Revenge of the Ninja is awesome. I love that movie. Haven't seen it in about 15 years or so, but I remember loving it. I remember when I was a kid they used to have Kung Fu theatre every Sunday on cable. Some of those movies were truly, the cheesiest most hilarious kung fu movies ever made. There was one called-"The flying guillotines" where a certain team of martial artists had created a weapon attached to a rope that you could throw like a hoop around someones head, and then when you pulled the rope it would chop off their heads like a guillotine. You can only imagine the cheesiness of this one. It was great. Has anyone ever seen that ?

yes, revenge of the ninja is the greatest chop sockie movie i have ever seen. the final battle on the rooftop is classic. i also liked iron monkey, it was way over the top. twin warriors with jet li comes in at a close 2nd. the mortal combat movies are good. try the hunted with christopher lambert and john lone.

I like the martial arts movies, but they have to have believable choreography. I teach martial arts and when see things which are completely un achievable I loose the thread of the film. Jet Li is probably one of the best modern day martial arts actors, but for the comedy element it has to be jackie Chan.

I'm starting my little foray into modern Martial Arts cinema. I recently saw "Once Upon a Time in China", which I actually didn't too much care for. This afternoon I saw "Iron Monkey", which I thought was fabulous, especially Donnie Yen's over all perfomance. I've got "CT, HD" to watch tomorrow.

Anyone have any thoughts on "Black Mask", or any of Jet Li's other U.S. flicks? Recommendations are always welcome.

you should for the most part stay away from jet li's american flicks except for kiss of the dragon which is a fantastic example of what jet li can do when he decides to take a role that is the slightest bit serious, and doesnt require wire work, because lets face it if there is one person who can over do wire work to death. It is jet li. The one is also very entertaining movie for what it is. As for black mask. I found it more than tolerable, but less than memorable. Here's a friendly warning thoug Stay away from all other american jet li movies aside from the ones mentioned. However i would strongly recommend his asian films like shoalin temple which is pure martial arts madness, or his legend movies. These films show off his true skill

Other great martial art movies include , fist of legend, The prodigal son, Blade of fury, Shaolin challenges ninja, and the Shaolin master killer. These are of the greatest martial art movies in the genre. Of course there are some more out there,but these cannor be questioned as amazingly stunning in pure martial arts

It's cool to see someone else mention Revenge Of The Ninja...
I love all the Sho Kosugi movies, I grew up watching them as a kid..
Enter The Ninja is my favorite Sho Kosugi movie though..I wish they would release it on dvd...

I'm also a big fan of Bruce Lee's movies, he was always such the profesional..he also trained with dan Insonato a huge figure in the Filipino martial arts world..

I studided Balintiwak myself along with Tae Kwon Do, Hapkido, and Judo..

Question for PRO-PAIN: Did you come up with your User ID after the band or was it something creative on your own? I'm a pretty decent fan of Pro-Pain.
