    once upon a time in china 1-2 ,iron monkey,drunken master ,the young master,some of samo hung flims ,fist of fury.
    I wish hongkong legends would get the rights to dm2 and fist of legend and have a proper release with original soundtrack and language.
    instead of the crap we have now .I`m still holding on to my video of fist as the it has the original cantonese soundtrack.
    the early jackie chan films ,poilce story,project a,city hunter etc.

    Enter The Dragon....definitely.

    Although all the bruce lee flicks were great as were things like:
    drunken master, iron monkey, prodigal son, kung fu hustle, police story 1 & 2, Crouching tiger, Fist of Legend, hero, moon warriors, Once upon a time in China 1-3, snake in the eagles shadow, the young master etc etc



    ...oh, and Kung Faux Vol 1 gives them all a good run for thier money :thumbsup:

    Enter the Dragon, this would be in the top ten as its the first martial arts film i remember seeing. but a lot of Jakie Chan films i think are better, Police Story 1 & 2, Miracles, Project A, Armour of god 1 & 2.

    I would also like to include Fist of the North Star and House of Flying Daggers. Really liked City Hunter too, for the Street Fighter 2 scene!!

    Best Kung Fu/Martial Arts film? Here's a clue: it has THAT theme music and THAT Jeet Kune Do master.....

    Also love anything directed/produced by Zhang Yimou.

    Ong Bak is a modern classic too. Really looking forward to the next Jaa production :lease:

    Difficult to pick a particular film, but I can tell you what my favourite martial arts sequence is: the final showdown between Bruce Lee and Chuck Norris in Way Of The Dragon (in the ruins of the Colliseum).

    If I were picking a whole film I think I probably would go for something by Jackie Chan, though.

    No votes for Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon? :devil:

    A superb scene in Jackie Chans 'Meals on Wheels' (I think its called that!) where Jackie fights Benny 'the jet' Urquidez. Absolutely amazing! I see Fighter in the Wind recently, thats a brilliant Martial Art film. Cradle to the Grave has a great fight scene in the Octagon Cage with the likes of Tito Ortiz, Chuck Liddle and Randy Coutre. Superb!
