    Hi -

    Other than Hero, Shaolin Soccer and Crouching Tiger, can anyone suggest some decent martial arts films of recent vintage?

    Many thanks

    Paul

    Iron Monkey is superb make sure you get the R2 HKL release as the R1 has been edited. Others...(off the top of my head)
    Once upon a time in China 1-3 R2 HKL versions (pt 3 is very slightly cut though)
    Fist of Legend - still Jet li's best fight scenes - Awesome
    Prodigal Son
    Tigercage 2
    Ninja in a dragons den
    Scorpion king
    Swordsman 2

    Theres 100's more but cant think right now

    Old but good ones are.

    Drunken Master = A young Jackie Chan, One of his best films.
    Wheels on meals = Very funny too (not sure if its out on DVD yet, anyone?).
    Snake in an eagles shadow

    As for recent ones

    Rush hour 1 & 2 are worth a watch.

    Gotta love that man Chan, Hes the greatest.

    Drunken Master 1&2 (Drunken Master 2 IMO is one of the best martial arts films)

    I even think the fight scences in The Transporter are top!!
