Not really a kung fu movie, but Chocolate was a good martial arts movie. About an ex cop in Korea. Very good.
Jim

Eh? You sure? I saw a film called Chocolate but it was about an autistic girl who can replicate the martial art moves she sees.

Sappy during the "plot" parts, but very good action scenes.

anybody seen the movie "chocolate" ? its featured on netflix instant view. its about an autistic girl who masters fu by way of tv and video games. and what about shaolin soccer now thats good stuff.
Saw that one on a whim through netflix, and it wasn't bad.

I also like Kung Fu Hustle. The only Bruce Lee movie I really like is Chinese Connection.

They've all been mentioned already, so I wont bother listing, but Ip Man 1 & 2 were the best I've seen. Part three sort of fell into a category all its own, more fantastic than real.Mike

Regarding Kung Fu Hustle:


Yes! More converts! Soon ALL will see the light and acknowledge The Kung Fu Hustle as the Best Kung Fu Movie EVER (or face the wrath of our hatchets!!)

All you young whippersnappers have no knowledge of history. :)

Five Fingers of Death (1972)
Tian xia di yi quan (original title)
Country: Hong Kong
Language:Mandarin
Release Date: 21 March 1973 (USA)
Production Co: Shaw Brothers

IMDB Trivia Factoid:
The English dubbed version, released through Warner Brothers, was the film that launched the craze for "Kung Fu" movies in the United States.

This movie taught me that elderly Chinese men could jump over ten feet high from a static posture. Three deacdes later I am still working of developing that leaping technique... one day soon.
:mst:
Truly a classic. They actually showed it in mainstream theaters back then, before the genre became denigrated as "chop-sockey".

When I saw it out in public about 20 years ago, it was billed as Kung Fu Cult Master if that helps.
Also known as "Lord of the Wutang". As I recall, he learns his "Solar Stance" from Sammo, who was fused to a boulder and had to roll everywhere he went :).
