The Top TenXW
Bruce lee not a hero but a superhero
This movie is a lot more under-rated than I thought it would be! It's awesome man!
Yes one of the greatest movies and original art of the greatest artist of all Bruce lee
On my top 10 favorites of all time!V9 Comments
I think it is one of the best movies in the history.
Jackie Chan is the real Drunken Master...
This movie kicks ass. Plain and simple. - Badoosh45
It is indeed the best! They way he acts and fight while drunk is just so realistic!
The first kung fu movie I ever saw and still one of the highest ranking ones!V7 Comments
Other people will no doubt give a more poetic account of this film, but this truly manages to combine not just incredible (and for once realistic) fight scenes with engaging characters and a fantastic story together in a hugely enjoyable movie, well worth a watch if you are a fan of any of the others in this list
With stylish grace, Donnie Yen brings to life the fluid movements of Wing Chun, that ultimately inspired Bruce Lee's Jeet Kun Do.
This is an extravagant film, the story behind the greatest master of Bruce Lee. Winning one against 20 is possible.
Base on true story plus Donnie yen does a good jobV19 Comments
Best ANIMATED Kung fu movie ever
Best animation, best movie and best story all in one.
Why the heck is Kungfu Panda on this list? I enjoy a good Disney movie just as much as the next person, but this should not be here. And #4? COME ON! What! ONG BAK 3, Knockabout, and every single jackie chan (yes I relize Jackie does a voice in this... Doesn't count)and bruce lee movie ever made should be on here. Not this cartoon crap. Just sayingV5 Comments
Lui Chia-Hui (Gordon Liu) gives a commanding performance as Sin Te. The training sequences are authentic and the portrayal of Shaolin Temple's philosophy and values is respectful. Liu is an expert at Hung Ga kung fu and brings his years of training to a film that is thankfully free of the ridiculous wire-work and fake supernatural nonsense of other Shaw and H. K. martial arts films. A must-see and a must-own.
This movie is the best Shaolin movie of all time. The 35 chambers of the Shaolin Temple and the training routines are exceptionally portrayed. You can actually feel that you are part of the training. Outside of the training routines, the Shaolin Temple's philosophy is very well depicted. The invention of the 36th chamber and the way Gordon Liu comes up with it accidentally is a gem. All in all, this movie is a must have for any Kung Fu fan worth their salt. If you don't own this one, then you are not a Kung Fu connoisseur.
Original and unique kung fu movie easily in the top three one of the best. the fight scenes are old school
Just saw this what an awesome old school kung fu movie!V12 Comments
Wow on my own opinion this is the best jet li movie I ever watched. There's lot of action and it seems so really, its not like other movies where he flies ha.A. to me it's the bestV3 Comments
Jackie Chan's crap movie beat this?! This is one of the best kung Fu movies of all time, period
Fist of fury is a brilliant mixture of entertainment and martial arts. Bruce Lee is unstoppable!
No comparison Jackie chan is acrobatics bruce lee is all action bruce lee ids the best of all time hands down
One of the best martial arts movies.V4 Comments
This was a pretty good movie, but realistically Chuck Norris would've given Bruce Lee a serious beating if he had tried. Think about it this way...
1) It was a decently close fight, not like Bruce totally won without suffering some blows...
2) It was Bruce's movie! The storyline demanded that Bruce, who has cast himself as the protagonist, beat the villain (Chuck Norris)
3) CHUCK didn't HAVE HIS BEARD!
4) CHUCK didn't HAVE HIS BEARD!
5) CHUCK didn't HAVE HIS BEARD!
In real life, Chuck Norris easily could've killed Bruce Lee. :)
Bruce Lee beat up Chuck Norris in this film
He is so epic I went to the graveyard in Seattle and I saw his name on one of the graveyards I'm like WHAT THE?!?!
Bruce can easily defeat chuckV1 Comment
It's an old Kung Fu Classic but just an awesome movie period.
This and woodend soldiers gets my vote for best. I can't believe people voted for drunken master. It is garbage.
Master of the Flying Guillotine rocks... It needs to take the number 1 spot. Not only that but One Arm Boxer and the New One Armed Swordsman should be mentioned in this list.
Everything about this movie is epicV2 Comments
I like this movie but why is this over great martial arts movies like-five deadly venoms, the protector, iron monkey, game of death, fearless, crouching tiger hidden dragon, and tai chi master?
The sequel to this film ruined a good chance of seeing an amazing video game film.V1 Comment
TONY JAA AR A AH
TONY'S GONNA ROCK YOU ALL
Best cinematic action scene shot in one take.
Great display of Muay Thai
All time favorite. They need to remake this with current technology. If they do it right it will be a blockbuster. Need to keep it true to the original though!
You can't go wrong with this movie possibly the best kung fu movie all time. And I've seen all of the good ones this bay far is the best
Possibly the best cast ever in any martial arts movie
This is a classic and should be on everyone's list.V4 Comments
This movie changed my life. Watched it 80 times before I could move again.
I Think Shaolin Best Inspirational Movie, I Inspired From That Movie... (prash tak)V1 Comment
One of the first Shaw Brothers movies to get a theatrical release in the U. A.
One of the best KF movies made. I spent years trying to get a copy.
Kung Fu Panda?!?! Can I nominate Justin Beiber as well?
Long Step Mantis is the greatest.
My favorite character is Lord Shen!
Please bring back Lord Shen at the ending of Kung Fu Panda 3.
Lord Shen is my emperor.
All hail Lord Shen!V3 Comments
