Martial arts films are a subgenre of action films, which feature numerous martial arts fights between characters. These fights are usually the films' primary appeal and entertainment value, and often are a method of storytelling and character expression and development. Martial arts are frequently featured in training scenes and other sequences in addition to fights. Martial arts films commonly include other types of action, such as hand-to-hand combat, stuntwork, chases, and gunfights.
Who doesn't love some good ol' martial arts?!?! First, I'd like to start off by saying some of the older movies I have on this list have horrible acting. However, despite the bad acting, I think the martial arts were very good for it's time. So, I'm forewarning you, don't watch the movie thinking you're gonna see stellar acting! From Bruce Lee - Angela Mao - Jet Lee, I love them all! Even Jim Kelly, with his corny butt. Feel free to browse through my collection and ignite your memories. competition
