Martial Arts Movies and the MMA
 
So.... 80’s martial arts movies, like Bloodsport and Enter the Dragon were big influences on some MMA fighters like Kenny Florian!



What's YOUR favorite martial arts movie?

Warrior was actually pretty good IMO. Not saying it was the best but most of the MMA movie attempts are very cheesy. That one wasn't half bad.

TuNguyen 12-17-2012 06:02 PM

Warriors for sure.

The others have been too cheesy, badly acted, badly scripted and horribly directed. Basically all bad except the fight scenes... which weren't always great either...

Would Never Back Down fall into that category?

Alright Ima rattle out some flicks in no particular order.
Whatever comes off the top my head...

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!

If the Karate Kid were about an actual form of Karate it would be interesting. As it is it's an in universe style of Karate only. I agree though that Big Trouble in Little China's a fun movie.

Never back down is terrible the acting of martial arts is ridic. Enter the dragon and warrior were a lot more better

I definatly agree with you on Warrior. There's a reason it earned an academy award nomination. Though you have to admit there's some underground elements to the story.

I watched Kickboxer 4 last night... it was awful :/

Some films really do not age well.

They had that many kick boxer movies?
