  • The Most Insanely Stupid Martial Arts Movie Ever.

    Ok Guys, I am sure we have all seen at least 1 Martial Arts inspired Movie in our lifetimes.

    More than likely, if you're like me, you have seen at least 50.

    In your opinion, what was the Most Insanely Stupid, Just totally Non-Believable Martial Arts Movie ever made?????

    There are 2 that come to My Mind.

    (1) Kung Fu Hustle

    (2) Kung Fu Soccer

        Well darn, Duke! Those were the first two I thought of. Early Jackie Chan movies are in close second place.

          Seems to me I should be awarded one of those funny looking medals for thinking like you then.

            I didn't hate it, but Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon took the "hey look at me, gravity simply doesn't matter to me" aspect waaaaaaay to far. Eventually the over usage simply became too distracting.

            In a film never meant to be taken serious, crazy stuff is just part of the laughs.
            http://imdb.com/title/tt0286112/ Shaolin Soccer was a fine example of a film where serious was no more important than it was in Ghost Busters.

            Not sure anyone here actually knows the real me.
            I didn't for a long time either.

              That's because Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon is part of the Wu Xia Pian genre, very popular in Hong Kong since the 60s and which is a blend of chinese mythology, the chinese swordsman tradition and fantasy where flying heroes and fight scenes are very common and should not be considered a pure Martial Arts movie.

              Tsui Hark's Green Snake is a good example of Wu Xia Pian:



              Or Stanley Tong's Swordsman II:

                Okay since Crouching Tiger is out how about anything with Don "the Dragon" Wilson in it? Those are utterly horrible!

                  I loved "Kung Fu Hustle" it was hilariously funny, some can't understand parody I guess. Oh and Boonierat, nice clip, gotta love two martial arts chicks in a bathtub.

                    Sorry, but anyone who goes to a "martial arts" movie and expects anything akin to a Merchant/Ivory flick should be shot!

                    The BEST martial arts movies to be done in the last 10 years are the Kill Bill flicks!

                      Shaolin Soccer is what I was thinking about when I said Kung Fu Soccer.

                        My kids LOVE that movie! I always thought that any martial arts movie out of the far east was SUPPOSED to be bad...

                          I understand that but still the action and "acting" in Wilson's movies are BAD!

                          Give me Jet Li or Bruce Lee anyday, hell even Jackie Chan.

                            The Chinese version of Shaolin Soccer is good. I am told the North American version is very different and sucks big. When I rented it I was warned to go to a Chinese movie rental shop and make sure I got the Chinese version.
