    That was really good.

    I wish to god I could remember the name, but I watched one that came out last year that was damn good. Greatest samurai guy type, retires to a farm type town out in the middle of nowhere and goes into hiding. Somebody breaks the seal on his sword which alerts the others where he is and the slashing starts all over again. I tink Warrior was in the title of it somewhere.

    edit: Thanks Bing for finding me this, I highly recommend it

    Cos When you got the glow,
    there aint no stopping,
    what you want to do.

    hah, oh.

    To reach that upper level,
    your mind, body and soul must be one.

    It's a sacrifice, it takes hard work,
    It's a way of life.
    When you got the glow, you feel the one,
    (You feel the one)
    When you got the glow, Your body's gold,
    (Your body's gold)
    So don't let go, of the power of elevation.
    (Power)

    Maybe not a martial arts movie in the classic sense, but I thought "Hard Times" with Charles Bronson was great! :cool:

    Ok there are several very good ones but only one best. If you are talking wire fu where the actors go flying around like super heroes its hard to beat Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon. Also not a happy ending which I always look for in movies.

    If you are talking about just unbelievable fight scenes with no wire fu. Its gotta be Ung Bak. Its a movie from Thailand originally in French.

    If you are talking about a moral story that is well done and has some very good but not super stars go find Best of the Best. I actually got to do a seminar with the main bad guy from that movie. His name is Simon Rhee or Phillip Rhee I forget at the moment as its been years. The two main parts are played by them both and are real life brothers.

    However the best martial arts movie of all time is a tie between Enter the Dragon and Forbidden Kingdom. Bruce Lee who made that genre of movies popular with the west. And Jackie Chan and Jet Li who have got to be the two best movie martial arts stars of the past 20 years.
