Martial Arts Movies

Martial Arts Movies are without any doubt the most entertaining movies you will ever see:). Some of these movies normally have a minimal plot and focus almost exclusively on the action, while other martial arts films have more complex plots and characters along with action scenes.Amongst the various martial arts,Kung Fu has become the most famous in movies thanks to actors like Bruce Lee and Jackie Chan who have become legends of martial arts movies:).Here are some of the many martial arts movies that i enjoyed:).





Ip Man (2008)
Ip Man is undoubtedly one of the best martial arts movies ever made:). This movie is a semi-biographical account of Yip Man, the first martial arts master to teach the Chinese martial art of Wing Chun.This is not one of those martial arts movies that has no plot and focuses just on action scenes.It tells the story of Yip Man in a superb way and is helped a lot with its good direction and superb performance by its lead Donnie Yan:),who plays his role superbly:). Also the actions scenes are just superb to watch:).If you want to watch a martial arts movie with a great storyline along with action scenes,then this is the best movie to watch:).

Enter the Dragon (1973)
Whenever one hears the term "Martial Arts",the first movie one normally thinks of has to be "Enter the Dragon":):):).

    hờn giận gì ta nơi nơi đùa hoa cợt nguyệt?

    Đoạn Vân hơi khó hiểu về những nữ nhân của mình. Các nàng dường như
    trước giờ chưa từng trách mình đã quá hoa tâm!

    Khải Lợi cười cười:

    - Vân ca, ngươi nói xem ngươi có mấy nữ nhân của mình?

    - Nàng và Khải Sắt Lâm này, cả Tiểu Nguyệt cũng có thể tính luôn! Cộng
    thêm còn có Âu Dã Ny xem ra cũng có vài tia tình ý, Liên Na và Vân Vân.
    Được rồi, còn có Tạp Sắt Phu nữa, ta đã hơn một tháng rồi chưa gặp nàng,
    có cơ hội nhất định phải đến gặp nàng! Ai nha, như vậy theo tính toán
    của ta dường như cũng kha khá rồi, a a, Khải Lợi, khó nói quá, ta cảm
    thấy mình cũng hơi quá phận. Nhưng ai bảo ta quá đẹp trai tràn đầy mị
    lực làm chi!

    Khải Lợi dùng một ánh mắt "ngươi ngu ngốc thế" nhìn Đoạn Vân, nàng dùng
    ngón tay dí dí vào trán Đoạn Vân, cười nói:

    - Chàng tính giỏi lắm! Chàng có biết Phụ hoàng ta có bao nhiêu nữ nhân
    không? Ph
