Classic martial arts movie.
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!
On my top 10 favorites of all time!V 9 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.
Man...Donnie yen does a fabulous jobV 22 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!
very goodV 10 Comments
Best ANIMATED Kung fu movie ever
Best animation, best movie and best story all in one.
Okay, this is fun to watch but cartoons do not belong in the category of Kung Fu movies.
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 sayingV 6 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

Bruce Lee beat up Chuck Norris in this film
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. :)
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?!?!
Chuck Norris's techniques in Karate are not that great ( okay, he was Karate world champion in real life, but against who? ). Bruce Lee techniques ( Jeet Kune Do ) are more diverse ( and in real life he had beaten Chuck Norris without a doubt, he was superfast, very powerful [ just look for real demonstrations on YouTube ] ). In the movie Bruce Lee is really show us 10% of his fighting skills because if he had shown 100% of his fighting capacities Chuck Norris would be beaten in 2 seconds. Also, I like this movie because it was filmed in Rome ( it changes from Chinese movies ) and the Chemistry between actress Nora Miao and Bruce Lee works very well in this movie ( She's also a great Kung Fu fighter. Check out some of her early seventies movies on YouTube ).V 2 Comments
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 epicV 2 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.V 1 Comment
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
Chang Cheh directed The Five Venoms and made 18 other films with the same actors. Legend of the Fox is probably the best of the lot, but this one is awesome too.V 4 Comments

Kung Fu Panda?!?! Can I nominate Justin Beiber as well?
Long Step Mantis is the greatest.
