The Top Ten Best Asian Movies

1 Seven Samurai

There's a reason I just upvoted all of akira kurosawa's movies

Can't believe it was made in 1954.

This is one of the greatest movies ever! A total epic and should be #1 and much higher on greatest of all time list!

One of the best movies from Akira Kurosawa

2 Oldboy

The fight scene alone (all choreographed and no cg or bs camerawork) sets this film apart. Adaptations of manga (generalize that to all of literature) onto the screen can all learn from this film. Overall a cult classic, highly underrated when taking into account how little known it is internationally.

So powerful it will haunt you - nomercyz182

I hate black people

Engaging from start to finish. There is no other movie like it. Great acting, great story, and great directing.

3 Inang Yaya

It is the best touching movie I've ever watched. It deserves to be in the 1st rank.

.. Aside from the noble story, the inspiring story really touches hearts of Filipino and anyone else who knows how to love a beloved one.. By appreciation...

Really inspire and less stress.
I love it! Please vote this. and this a filipino movie.
I love the filipino movie its very comedy

One of the greatest Philippine Movies.
Maricel Soriano ,the lead actress is one or I should say the greatest actress of her generation. - Ana

4 Ikiru

Watanabe here reminded me of my grandfather.

5 Battle Royale

A perfect mix of death bell a Korean movie and the saw

The best thing about this film is not the daring, unflinching, unapologetic, raw brutality or the courage it took to make. The best thing is that this film forces you to ask yourself what you would do if you had to kill (perhaps some of those closest to you) to survive. Would you cower in fear? Would you trust in others? Or would you forsake everyone and carve a path of carnage through them? That question and the way each member of the ensemble cast answers it make this an incredibly important film.

Battle Royale is a Japanese film that needs no remake, because director Kinji Fukasaku made it so realistic that after watching the movie you will imagine yourself part of the battle... "Life is a Game"

Great movie with awesome characters. The movie is very violent and twisted, but it's nothing that bothers me. Definitely a must-watch, especially if you've read the manga or novel! - sockersoppa

6 Kung-Fu Hustle

It makes me happy whenever I watch this movie.. I love stephen chow

The great Stephen Chow, like watching exaggerated live anime but it doesn't look cheap. LAugh trip

A great comedy with eye catching computer works!

Not chow's bet movie, but his best known movies

7 Akira

Hands down, BEST Anime film of all time and likely the most influential. This movie broke Anime to the U.S. and is the main reason we enjoy it so much today!

Maybe the best animated movie of all time, and way a head for its time. Wicked picture, story and soundtrack! Just an all time great movie.

8 Tokyo Story
9 Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon

its a household name and a great movie - Okami

10 Late Spring

The Contenders

11 Princess Mononoke

Miyazaki's film... Its all I can say

Should be closer to one, better than most of these annoying kung fu flicks. I love everything Miyazaki (also like Spirited Away and Nausicaa)

12 Rashomon

Directed by the great Akira Kurosawa, this may be the first movie to tell a story by showing different versions of the same event, as different characters saw it.

Only intelligent people choosing this. Maybe that's why it so less

13 Enter the Dragon

All time classic movie featuring the legend Bruce Lee.

14 Love Exposure

4 hours of awesome scenes, I love that it has every slice of life, Love,Comedy.Religion,Friendship,Family and Lust.

15 Grave of the Fireflies

Best animation movie

This is the must watch movie, I would rate it 9/10.

One of the best film animation I have ever seen

One of the saddest anti war movies ever made

16 Hero

Great film starring Zang Ziyi. If you loved the famous trilogy of Zhang Yimou you're gonna love this.

17 The Human Condition III: A Soldier's Prayer
18 House of Flying Daggers

An all-time favorite. A beautifully made work of art.

It is strikingly beautiful; the bamboo forest is by far the most outstanding viewing in the movie. The actors are very interesting as is the culture.

One of my favorite movies of all time. Visually pleasant to watch

Intense and beautiful. I love visually striking movies and this is one of the best I've ever seen. Ziyi Zhyang is always stunning!

19 Sepet

This movie suck... Must watch

20 The Life of Oharu
21 Sholay

The plot was terrible and the ending sucked. Brotherhood was a million times better

The greatest movie ever seen in Bollywood. Also Sharukh khan stared Dil wale dulhaniya le jayenge is another greatest movie in India.

22 The Sentimental Swordsman
23 Ugetsu
24 3 Idiots

Deserves the first place

Super movies

Best ever movie in the history of Indian cinema... Hats off to Amir khan..

One of the greatest movie I've ever watched. This movie moved me most, and also the Amir Khan's production, "every child is special."

25 Himalaya

A must watch movie... This movie will change the way you look at this world in a very wonderful way. An epic movie that unfortunately did not receive Oscar. However, I am not sad it did not because I undoubtly believe tat this movie just goes beyond Oscars. Amazing movie. Great soundtracks. A very amazing fact about the movie is tat the main character in the movie did not even know he was actually being shot for a movie as he was a just a simple illiterate old villager.

One of the gr8test movie of all time

26 Moon Child
27 Raid, The: Redemption

Best Asian Action Movie 2012

28 Harakiri
29 Nayakan
30 The Human Condition I: No Greater Love
31 Throne of Blood

This is one of Kurosawa's best-looking movies and that's saying a lot.Heavily influenced on Noh theatre and faithfully adapting Shakespeare's play (You can pretty much guess which one), this movie is really clever and visually striking despite its pacing problems.

32 In the Mood for Love

This is a masterpiece of movie-making art! The combination of superb acting, enchanting music and expressive cinematography makes In the Mood For Love one of the best movies ever.

It's a wonderful movie, if ou don't see it yet, urry, it's marvelous

33 Infernal Affairs

Andy lau and tony leung give a stellar performance here.
Their relationship is worked out very well.
It's one of my favorite Asian movies.

34 Fearless

Acting in and as Robo or Enthiran..

45 The Cup
46 Fists of Fury
47 The Road Home

Very touching film depicting love in it's deepest sense. This movie captures the simple gestures of love that we now fail to recognize which is most of the time embodies how it is to love and be loved. Highly recommended...

48 Ip Man

Ip man is Awesome. I love this movie and the humility displayed by Master Ip. This movie should definitely be rated higher.

WHAT! This should be top ten. What is its still doing here..up up up. Donnie Yen at his best. The sequel is surprisingly good. One of the best Kung Fu films out there which you won't care how far they veered from the true story. YES IT'S THAT GOOD!
