[QUOTE]Originally posted by Chris Caile:
What is your favorate martial arts film and why? And what is your opinion on some of the Japanese films like "The Seven Samurai" or classic Samurai films? We will also be reviewing current martial releases and want to know you opinions too.[/QUOTE]

I have several that would rate as my all time favorite, so I'll just list them with a brief explination.

01> Ching Wu & Shaolin Kung Fu
AKA: Bruce Le & Shaolin Kung Fu
AKA: Bruce vs. Black Dragon
***This was one of the very first Kung Fu films I ever saw as a kid, and it practically got me interested in the martial arts overall. It's not great comparing it to others in the yelling-out-loud-often-with-an-echo English Dubbing that added charm to the Kung Fu films of the 70's - 80's, and it WAS one of the films showcasing someone trying to be Bruce Lee... but none the less it's one of my faves. It involved a guy named Ching Ling who had to stop this angry Japanese General from closing all the Kung Fu schools in China during the 1930s. Bolo Yueng is in it doing some odd Monkey Style Karate. Film ends with Ching Ling being shot in the back as he decides to walk from Korea BACK TO CHINA!

Broken Oath
***Film classic with Angela Mao Ying. I saw this one as a kid late night around 1:30 on TBS and it stayed with me forever. With hindsight the plot looks to be a rip off of Meiko Kaiji's Lady Snowblood films, but I'm not entirely sure which film was made first.

Shaolin Master Killer
***Gordon Liu kicking major ass, but only after we get to go every step of the way in his rigorous training. Some of what the fighter's to be go through is just insane.

I have more, but those are the main three that stick out and have surivived the test of time with me.

6) Iron Monkey

This list is not in any paticular order.

-Bourne Identity/Supremecy - not really MA films but very cool no-nonsense, efficient MA (Kali) fighting.

-Matrix - again not really a MA movie but has some very cool Kung fu fight seens

-Kill Bills - VERY COOL sword play.

my favorate ma film would be... well i guess there's a few and here they are, fist of legend, twin warriors, blood sport, but there's more, return of the dragon, kiss of the dragon, best of the best 123&4, police story 1&2, mr. nice guy, drunken master, snake in eagles shadow, the master, young master, the one, art of snake and crane, china 123&4, and i've seen so many more but i guess my favorate would be fist of legend it's action is awesome and jet li really has style when it comes to martial arts in his movies which with his background in wushu is understandable. plus i think they added to the story in a good way.

Favourite MA Movie. Gonna cheat and give a few

For Dialogue and plot : 'The Silent Flute'

For 'wire-fu' : Iron Monkey (Donnie Yen version)

For Pure entertainment : Around the world in 80 Days

For Gritty comparative realism: The Hunted

For appalling acting (come on, you know you love it ) : Enter the Ninja

Best Samurai/chambara: Shogun assassin- i know purists will say the 'babycart series', but I prefer the american soundtrack- more atmospheric and the kids voice is cool

For pure 'wow' factor: The two Towers. I know it is not an eastern MA movie, but you cant get any more martial than 'Helms Deep', and it is the greatest movie battle ever filmed IMO

Hope it's not too late to get in on this. I know it's kind of an old thread.

I have 4 favorite Martial Arts films. These are in no order. I watch them all over and over again, and have for many years.

Best of The Best 1&2 (I might be the one guy in the world that is a fan of Eric Roberts )

The Last Dragon (Shonuff now has a movie career, but where the hell did Taimak go )

Big Trouble in Little China (who hasn't had an old crazy Uncle that reminded them of Egg Fu Yung )

Ghost Dog with Forest Whitaker. It's a reasonably credible story about a true samurai following the Bushido code in a modern setting, with an interesting culture clash. Not the usual flashy Hollywood fight choreography, but a lot of truth behind the scenes...
