    Recommend me some good martial arts movies. I don't care if it's a fictional movie or a movie based on a true story, it just has to be entertaining. Boxing, MMA, street fighting, even kungfu, whatever as long as the movie is actually good. Some examples of movies I like:

    Creed, Rocky 1 & 6, Blood and Bone, Undisputed 2 and 3, Warrior, Southpaw, Ali, etc.

    Please elaborate on your choices.

    Sadly, most combat movies got terrible acting and boring stories, even the non-Asian ones. But there are a few gems among them.

    Warrior with Tom Hardy and Joel Edgerton was pretty good.

    Heard Redbelt was good too.

    Damn near anything Jackie Chan did right up to the Protector, most Shaw Brothers movies, Sonny Chiba Street Fighter series, Dragon From Russia, any Wu Tang/Shaolin movies, fuck there are too many to mention. Anything with Drunken or Monkey in the title, Shogun Assassin, any Zatoichi or Snow movies, shit is almost infinite

    Couple of decent boxing movies, Split Decision, Homeboy, Midnight Sting, Price Of Glory

    Shootfighter - Underrated gem with Martin Kove, William Zabka and Bolo Young.

    If you like those movies listed in the OP you'd probably like Ong Bak.

    My favourite modern martial arts film is without a doubt The Raid.

    But just start watching...
