The Top Ten
In 1973 at the age of 6, I first watched Bruce Lee in Enter the Dragon. This lead to a life long love of martial arts, where, Judo taught me to fall, Taekwondo taught me to kick, Wing Chun taught me to reply, Aikido taught me to connect and Tai Chi taught me to breath. All taught me, balance, focus and belief in one's self. Xiexie Bruce Lee.
Classic martial arts movie.
Classic Bruce Lee action movie

Best movie every!
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.V 23 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!
This is technically a re-release of Drunken Master 2 which is it's original English Title. Or you could say this is the United States and European release of the much older movie which was earlier released a few years prior in China and Asia. I went to the movies to watch this one just to see it on the big screen even though I already had my own copy of the VHS for over a few years. I took my VHS copy of the original movie with me to the movie theater to show to the patrons there that if they really want a copy they can order one online since it already existed in VHS and DVD format. It was the exact same movie with possibly a few extra scenes since the new one had to be slightly re-edited for brevity. Great Movie, but I also would expect the original Drunken master 1 to be on this list above Kung Fu panda even though I love that movie. - djemirV 10 Comments
THIS IS NUMBER 1
Best ANIMATED Kung fu movie ever
Okay, this is fun to watch but cartoons do not belong in the category of Kung Fu movies.
Best animation, best movie and best story all in one.V 7 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.
No other kung fu movie comes close. Hands down the best, one of the few pieces of fiction that taught me valuable knowledge about life and overcoming obstacles.
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 schoolV 14 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 best
Original action that help set jet li apart from others.
The best movie of jet li I ever watched, fantastic
THE FAST MOVES OF JETLI AND THE STORY LINE, INSPIRED ME MUCH AND I've SEEN THIS MOVIE NEARLY 50 TIMES, ITS WORTHY FOR SPENDING TIME ON THIS MOVIE...
you can't get a better martial art master then
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 downV 5 Comments
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?!?!
I read a comment about how Chuck Norris would've won... he would not have won against Bruce Lee. There's no way. Chuck Norris was Bruce Lee's student. And on one occasion Cuck Norris said that Bruce Lee could take him down in a fight.V 3 Comments
An Incredible Movie - iliekpiez
My favorite character is Lord Shen!
Please bring back Lord Shen at the ending of Kung Fu Panda 3.
Lord Shen is my emperor.V 4 Comments
Love to way the video game was brought out to live! and wish they had made more!
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?
Awesome game I play it you kill
The sequel to this film ruined a good chance of seeing an amazing video game film.
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
An "I love you" note to kung fu movies by one of the great directors of our time.
Great movie, and some culture as well
TONY JAA AR A AH
TONY'S GONNA ROCK YOU ALL
Best cinematic action scene shot in one take.
Great display of Muay Thai
This movie is awesome! Best kun fu movie ever! Come on its 42. please vote!
We are talking kung-fu movies, not classic movies that has some karate in it.
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.V 4 Comments
This movie changed my life. Watched it 80 times before I could move again.
Good movie for sure
I Think Shaolin Best Inspirational Movie, I Inspired From That Movie... (prash tak)
Kung Fu Panda?!?! Can I nominate Justin Beiber as well?
Long Step Mantis is the greatest.
Donnie Yen. That is all.
For real on the Kung Fu Panda comment.
One of the first Shaw Brothers movies to get a theatrical release in the U. A.
A must see kung fu classic.
One of the best KF movies made. I spent years trying to get a copy.
One of, if not the Best, Kung Fu MOVIE! Period.
Great martial arts story.
I do not agree with this list.
Just go watch it then tell everyone whats the best kung fu movie
Why is this so low? It's pretty good, should be in the top ten at least in my opinion
This movie of great movie in the wold
Really, really funny, great movieV 3 Comments
Based on true story, very real combat scenes and full of traditional Chinese wisdom. In my opinion Jet Li's best movie.
This movie has awesome action sequences and a very good story. This movie is definitely one of Jet Li's best movies.
Jackie Chan even rocks the Snake Fist style! - vikitagupta
The best from jet li
I really liked this movie but it went for along time
The Best of All Time!
Jackie Chan is the best Drunken Kung Fu Master! - vikitagupta
Two living legends together teaching in their own ways... what else can you get from a kung fu movie... its master piece...
Amazing kung fu movie
Cynthia Rothrock was impressive - Alexandr
Good part to film man Jalal Merhi, in art detectiv Derek Richard. He is good tiger kung-fu. His alli is good fight woman Masterson, part to Cynthia Rothrock. Opponent duo is Asian grandmaster fight Bolo Yeung.
Top 5 all time
Its not just a movie. it's a long running series of episodes. watch all of it, then vote, should be top 10 with all bruce lees
Best displabay of karate and kunfu from China and Japan. The Crab technique was one of the best I saw. Love these movies. Gordon Lui, Jacke Chan and Jet Lee are amazing.
This movie should be a lot higher on the list. Its cool how it shows a lot of different techniques in both, Chinese and Japanese martial arts. See it, wont regreat it.
Shame on all of you for having not seen this movie. None of you are real kung fu fans. This is bar none the greatest martial arts film ever. And I've seen them all. Seriously.
Raid 1 and 2...must watch..best hands down... U guys need an update.
Very least top 10
Story, All fight scène are WONDERFUL. Not only to me, who are all watch this movie will vote.
This movie contains one of the best training of all time. Even if the movie features kung fu styles that does'nt exist.
Base on true story
Greatest Kung fu comedy of all time
