Kung Pow: Enter the Fist

Also, there needs to be some John Woo, and Kurosawa's "Seven Samurai" if it's eligible.

Yeah I kind of figured that. Plus, considering the Japan-o-phile I am, I should have immediately realized that Kung Fu is Chinese...

Haha... nice, you included Fist of Legend up there. The choreography absolutely blew me away the first time I saw that. What an amazing martial arts flick.

Indeed, that is a classic of the wirework type fight choreography.

Just saw the movie Tai Chi Master (not the Jet Li one) with Jacky Wu (aka Wu Jing). Wow it was an awesome movie despite it's obvious extremely low and budget and low-fi ness or whatever you call it. Deserves a mention among the greats just for the incredible display of skills by so many martial artists and choreography by the great Woo Ping Yuen. Jacky Wu is so awesome, he just keeps getting better. His earliest movie (that I know of), Tai Chi Master 2, is also really great and funny, too.

One of the few kung fu classics i never really got into, i dont mind it but it didnt hit me like once upon a time in china 2 did. I found the fighting to wire based for my liking, But thats me, its usually ranked as one of jet's best movies.

Yeah mrguitar, if you're talking bout the tv movie tai chi master with wu jing i really liked that one. Had tons of great wushu fighting in it, first time i saw jacky wu jing was in SPL when he had that sick fight with donnie in the alleyway. Ive been a fan of his ever since.
