    I always had a soft-spot for The One. It's sci-fi! But with martial arts! And Jason Statham! And Carla Gugino :love: Good fun, I say.

    Enter the Dragon is great, and I almost invariably like anything with Jackie Chan in it - I love the way he commits to the stunts and incorporates the environment into the fight scenes. It makes them fun - and frequently funny - to watch Police Story is the obvious one, but then I love Rush Hour - although I'm not exactly sure that it counts...

    Then again, I'm not exactly a connoisseur of martial arts flicks, so my taste for them is probably *******s

    Jackie Chan for comedy, but Enter The Dragon is the martial arts film isn't it.

    Stunning action, bit poor otherwise though, but yeah, Tony Jaa will be taking the crown from Jet Li and Jackie Chan once they fully retire.

    I've always loved Jet Li's tribute to Bruce Lee in Fist of Legend.
    My favourite are the Fong Sai Yuk movie's. They're just comedy, and charming.
    Police Story is also up there, and the recent one was was quite good too.

    Ong Bak has to be up there as one of the finest.

    House of flying daggers...i dunno about the martial arts in it, per se, but i always find it to be a superb film.

    And i always like "Kung Fu" - it's so funny, even though you have to read subtitles!

    Mine would have to be 'Best of the Best' from 1989.

    Not many ppl have seen or know of it but its a good movie. Rent it out or d/l if you guys get the chance, especially if your tastes are old school..

    Ong Bak for sure.

    I didn't like The One much tbh. I thought Fearless was pretty good.
