  • The Greatest Martial Arts Moments

    Well, there are certainly some good moments here, but I can think of a whole lot more moments more deserving of such a list. What do you guys think is missing?

          Judo has not been a real powerhouse at the movies. For example.

              Can't forget the swordmaster Tishiro Mifune.

                I've been a collector of Martial Arts movies for many years, almost all of them from Asia. I really have to separate the Japanese Samurai movies (chambara) from the Hong Kong Kung Fu films…which mostly depict hand-to-hand combat (there are of course some exceptions). American “Martial Arts” movies don’t even count, or rate in my book. Steve Segal is the worst. He is as bad a Martial Artist as he is an actor…maybe even worse! Here is my short list of personal favorites in no particular order:


                Hong Kong

                1) Enter the Dragon
                2) Fists of Fury (a.k.a. The Chinese Connection in the U.S.)
                3) Drunken Master 2
                4) The 36th Chamber of Shaolin (a.k.a. Master Killer)
                5) Master of the Flying Guillotine (a.k.a. One-Armed Boxer 2)
                6) The Five Venoms (a.k.a The Five Deadly Venoms)
                7) The New One-Armed Swordsman (a.k.a Triple Irons)
                8) The Swordsman
                9) Once Upon a Time in China
                10) The Chinese Boxer

                There are actually so many more!


                Japan

                1) The Lone Wolf and Cub Series
                2) The Samurai Trilogy
                3) Zatoichi Series
                4) The Seven Samurai
                5) Ran
                6) The Street Fighter
                7) The 47 Ronin
                8) Lady Snowblood
                9) Sword of Doom
                10) Samurai Rebellion

                And once again…there are many more!


                Honorable mention does go to Kill Bill Vol.1 (but of course most of the martial arts scenes were filmed in China)!!

                  Great taste in MA films Magnusmagic and I agree that Hollywood makes bad copies.
                  Enter the Dragon no contest. Especially when Bruce Lee (my hero) says; 'You hab insuwted my famiry...and you hab insuwted a Shaorin tempwe'. That and the rest of the film. Lone Wolf and Cub also excellent.
                  also like;

                  The Big Boss
                  Shaolin Temple
                  Fists of Fury 'Alright then...let's beat 'em up!'
                  The truth? You can't handle the truth! No truth handler you! I deride your truth handling abilities!

                    Casual fan

                    Im a casual fan of martial arts movies.
                    Favorite moments are as follows.
                    1) Bruce Lee vs Chuck Norris
                    2) Chuck Norris vs David Carradine in Lone Wolf Mcquade

                    Funniest moment goes to Jackie Chan in Cannonball Run when he split his pants.

                        Bruce Lee vs. Chuck Norris is a classic.
