    Seen any good Kung-Fu flicks of late?

    I love a good Kung-Fu flick, me!

    I like to read Impact magazine and keep an eye on most action films, but has anybody seen a good Kung-Fu/action film of late?

    I quite liked SPL with Sammo Hung and Donnie Yen and Dragon Tiger Gate, again with Donnie Yen (loving them nunchukas!). City of Violence was another good 'un, if a little like Kill Bill at the end.

    Of course, Ong-Bak was pretty eye-popping in places!

    Anybody seen any of these or can suggest any others that I may have missed?

    Yeah spl is fun, great knife fight and wwf style fight at the end!

    Exiled is a pretty good recentish action yarn from johnnie to - its the third in the Election series which are great but maybe not quite action/kung fu. Fulltime killer and the mission are worth a punt as well.

    The proper cut of fearless is great but Im guessing you've seen that.

    Random classics I like are iron monkey/fist of legend/once upon a time in china/kung fu hustle/hero/last hurrah for chivalry etc etc not sure if they are strictly kung fu movies though...but hey!

    Warrior King is also worth watching for some more cray-zee Tony Jaa Elbow and Knee action - although please bear in mind that story is even worse than the one in Ong Bak!

    Love the fight in the temple though with the guy who fights like Eddie from Tekken (Capoeira style)!


    And the end fight is like something out of Streets of Rage with the massive blokes getting all bent outta shape by quick lil Tony



    I also love Drunken Master 2 - still pretty hard to get hold of though

    Check out Fatal Contact if your after something that's new and loaded with some great fight scenes.

    Check out Prodigal Son, and the first two shaolin temple movies, and Swordsman 2 - that one's chuffin nuts

    At first, I thought Fatal Contact was the film about bird flu, but apparently there's an action film by the same name! Will try and source that one out.

    Anybody seen Death List? I'd quite like to check it out, but it looks pretty cheap...

    Swordsman II may get a viewing too. It makes me think of Zipang for some reason. That's got a fantastic opening.

    I miss OutThere on Channel 5, that had snippets of some bonkers Kung-Fu action.

    Another fave of mine is Drive with Mark Dacoscos - anybody else seen it?

    Drunken Master 2 can be got here. It's now called Legend of the Drunken Master. Problem is - it has been dubbed into english, but at least Jackie Chan does his own voice. Also, a complete musical underscore has been written afresh for this version. It's good.

    New Police Story is worth checking out (see Police Story 1, 2, and 3 first - they are all great) - although this one has a ropey plotline about Terrorist Gamers who use their rich parents money to rebel against the governmental system, the fights are great.

    The Once Upon a Time in China trilogy is fantastic - just got it last month for my birthday!

    Both Tony Jaa movies for bone-crunching action.

    The Seven Swords is really good, came out here last year I think. Worth picking up.
