    Default Asian Martial Arts Movies

    Hmmmm....there seems to be no thread relating to this topic so felt like doingthis one.
    The latest one I've watched is Tom Yum Goong, a Thai Martial Arts movie also starring Tony Jaa.
    But my favourite right now is Jet Li's Fearless!!!!!

    Oh yeh feel free to update us with new Martial arts films!
    hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.....................

    if you ask me once upon a time in china 1-3 are clasics.
    *spoiler for fearless, if you havnt seen it and dont want to ruin it stop here.









    i likes fearless a lot but i didnt like how he died in the end. maybe it just had a greater significance, the character died and that was jet li's last martial arts epic.

    Ong Bak would have been great only if the movie didn't last more than 20 minutes... because outside the fightings it's quite lame ^^"

    Same can be said for Tom Yun Goong, truly I find most martial arts movies to be pretty lame plot wise, but if the "story" helps you get from awesome fight to awesome fight then I can't complain.

    Ive never been too big on Jet-Li movies. There is always too much wire work, which takes away from his actually fighting skill.

    I perfer Jackies older movies, The young master, police story, Drunken master and the return of.

    Tony Jaa's stories are stupid. But god damn the fighting is epic.

    And imho thats all that matters XD

    Fearless was great in terms of actions but i concur, the ending sucked. I did like The Legend and Master Of The Flying Guillotine.


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.

    i think the old Jet Li movies arent bad, he didnt use as much of the trick wiring back then but hate his newer ones. but i remember these werent too bad, Wong Fei Hung, Once Upon a Time in China, and i cant remember the other ones he did.

    Same with Jackie Chan but i think hes better since he didnt used to use tricks to pull things off and his older movies were a lot better, but he has a few ok movies now i guess. I liked Rumble in the Bronx, Who am I?, Drunken Master 1&2, and more i cant seem to remember either since its been a while.
