    NOT a movie . Its a TV Show about mma called Kingdom. You should all go check it out. It's pretty fucking good. Like REALLY good. Some fighters actually do some cameos in there aswell

    The show was even talked about in an episode of looking for a fight (timestamped)

    Game of Death II A.K.A. Tower of Death (Bruceploitation classic) is a must see as well. So many wtf moments it will make your head spin.

    It was Zhang Yimou's answer to Ang Lee's American styled Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon. A Chinese film, that was accessible to outsiders, but never compromised being Chinese to attract a foreign audience. Its cool that one of the world's greatest filmmakers does Martial Arts films. I think his follow up to this was arguably just as brilliant.

    I liked it better than Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. What was his follow up that you are calling just as brilliant?

    That hurricane dude was a freak....I never

    I guess cause I grew up on bruce lee movies and all the kung foo movies...so to me, martial arts was all that....and I'm amazed not more people are putting bruce lee movies as their favorite.

    FEARLESS with Jet Li. Saw it randomly one day and it's been a favorite ever since. I wonder if kiss if the dragon holds up...

    For something funny try Kung Pao Enter the Fist or better yet Kung Fu Hustle.

    People give Seagal tons of crap nowadays, but back in the day, he had some good, action packed movies...his style was very different than other martial artists...but under seige, hard to kill, above the law, all good movies.

    for my wuxia brethren.. wind and cloud.
    also the street fighter series with sonny chiba is my shit old school martial arts flickery at its best.
    Fighter in the wind is a fun movie even though the telling of Obayams life seems questionable at best.

    I thought Carradine did a great job. I love this movie. Totally agree on the budget and costumes, but part of the charm for me was the low budget feel.
