Yup...

They've killed off the original characters though (couldn't afford to use the original actors ie. Van Damme I guess).

That happens with a lot of movies. I bet that's what's going to happen in the new Star Wars trilogy!

One film that nobody seems to have seen is Best of the Best. All sequels were awful but it was an amazing story. I watched it the night before my karate tournament and these dudes were bust opened and everything. I get points off for hitting too hard to the face. Bullshit

Bloodsport and Kickboxer need to be in there. I grew up watching them, both insane movies and probably a lot of why I'm an MMA fan today.

I think in just all round greatness, IP Man tops it. I'm into nostalgia and old school shit as much as the next guy, but Ip Man to me just had everything a martial arts film is supposed to. Forbidden Kingdom had potential before it's rewrite, Jet Li and Jackie Chan should have smashed it without gimpy white kid.

I agree Bloodsport was a pretty good story. Had kind of an early UFC feel to it when it was still style versus style. Too bad it was based on a story that is probably false.

Jet Li's - First of Legend has got to be my favourite martial arts film of all time though. The fighting in that is insane!

Which Jet Li movie is the one where he is part of a military experiment and becomes a librarian when he is tracked down?

Best Of The Best

Wax On Wax Off
Enter The Dragon (most watched this in the 80's so we'll categorize it as such)
They Call Me Bruce
Shogun and Bruce Leeroy (can't remember the name of the film at the moment, but you know what I'm talking about)
The Big Brawl with Jackie Chan
Kung Fu
Big Trouble In Little China
Drunken Monkey

Finally "I'm Gonna Get You Sucka!" Who can forget about Kung Fu Joe!
I trained a bit in a hybrid of kickboxing and Tae Kwon do and it's pretty useless in street fights, but those kicks are hella dope if you can land em.

Yah definitely an underrated film. Sad to see Chris Penn (brother of Sean Penn) pass away. He was actually a black belt in karate.

Dae Han Park was a bad ass. He was like a Asian version of Johnny from Karate Kid.

Try Drunken Master, Rumble In The Bronx, Once Upon A Time In China, The 36th Chamber of Shaolin, and Ong Bak.

Redbelt was surprisingly good. Forgot about that one.

Oh yeah I'd like to give that one a look. I should look for it on Netflix.

Shit how could I forget Ong Bak? I still haven't seen the two sequels.
