View Full Version : Old School Kung Fu Movies

When I was about 15 I used to sneak into the late night kung fu movies that used to get shown in the cinemas. These used to be packed events, with us all marvelling at the action.
Some of my favourites includes The Three Evil Masters. Duel of 7 masters, Chess boxing, 7 Grandmasters, Snake In the Eagle Shadow, Snake in The Monkey Shadow, Raiders of Shaolin, Shaolin vs Lama, Shaolin Temple (Shaw Bros version), Legend of a Fighter and of course Fist of Fury which I was lucky to see completely uncut many years ago and to my knowledge not possible to find a complete uncut version now.
Anyone into such crazy movies

I do like the modern movies such as the Ip Man series, Drunken master, Ong Bak.
A must watch is Kung Pow if you like martial arts send ups.

Love the first One Bak and all the IP Man series
Also check out Fists of Legends and Fearless both combine old school martial arts with modern production

Ong Bak and Old Boy are fun, but Zatoichi is my favourite modern(ish) martial arts movie.

I love the old Zatochi movies too, they have a interesting humour and always a crazy battle scene at the end
OLD BOY is pretty crazy
If you want something with more depth then try The Twilight Samuri
Also really recommend the Azumi movies some great fight scenes
More old school would be Lady Snowblood you can see where Kill Bill stole the final fight scene in kill bill 1

Some classics like Tai Chi Master, 36 Chambers of Shaolin and the Once Upon A Time in China series are great fun. New ones would be Ip Man 1 and 2, Black Belt (Japanese dialogue) and Raid Redemption
