I am a martial artist who has practiced kung fu and other martial arts for over a decade, and I am also a big fan of watching great movies, so as you can imagine kung fu and martial arts movies are something that I really enjoy a lot. So this seemed like a natural subject for me to write about, and I have written reviews of individual movies for various websites, but I thought that now it was time for me to put together my ultimate top ten list of the martial arts movies that I most recommend for people to watch, so without any further preamble here they are:
1 – Enter The Dragon: Bruce Lee really was the master and made some of the best kung fu films of all time without any doubt. He was at his peak when making Enter The Dragon, and even now it is still right up there with the best of the best.
2 – The Octagon: Chuck Norris taking on the evil Ninja hordes. They don’t make action stars like that anymore do they? They all seem to be pretty boys these days rather than tough guys like Chuck Norris.
3 – The Big Brawl: One of the movies that brought Jackie Chan to the worlds attention.
4 – Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: A seminal ‘modern’ martial arts movie with lots of mythical imagery and flying around on wires.
5 – House of Flying Daggers: Similar in style to crouching tiger, this is a beautifully made movie.
6 – Iron Monkey: Less well known that my other choices, but well worth watching.
7 – Zatoichi The Blind Swordsman: great sword fighting action.
8 – The Seven Samurai: I had to include at least one Samurai movie, and this is my personal favourite.
9 – Karate Kid: ok, so the karate kid series of movies were all very corny, but they were the stand out martial arts films of the 80’s
10 – Kill Bill: Perhaps this one doesn’t fit perfectly into the genre as you usually think about it, but its still great entertainment with some cool sword fighting action. turquli serialebi
