I would have to go with House Of Flying Daggers. <---------- This one was an instant classic and it was made during the 2000's. I know Im gonna get hit hard with some of you Bruce Lee fans. Well I loved all of his movies for sure. But he did not have the best ones of all time. What do you think ? I am here.

If you're going to go Zhang Ziyi (which is a decision I can definitely get behind), you're much better off with Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. Superior acting, fighting, and story telling. The villain reveal and final showdown near the end of HoFD ruined the whole thing for me.

It's true, the forest fight in HoFD > forest fight in CTHD.

Kung Fu Hustle was great. Top 5.

Well it's americanized but some of the lore regarding the monkey king was really interesting

Who ?

Lrn2google. It's very good.

I think "Prodigal Son" is the best Kung-Fu movie ever made. The fighting is truly realistic Wing-Chun. Way of the Dragon is probably my favourite though.

That actually was a pretty good movie.

Though, I must vote for Kung Pow, enter the fist.

Though the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle movies were pretty good too.

Chuck Norris is a legend. I like his Delta Force movies the best.

Ninjas and Chuck Norris =/= Kung Fu.

Ninjas use Ninjutsu.
Chuck Norris does Karate.

Neither of those are Kung Fu.

It's one of my all time favorite movies. What's great about it is that it not only parodies the action of kung fu movies, it parodies the plot elements. The production values are exceptional as well.

Chuck Norris played Bruce Lee's antagonist in "Return of the Dragon." The final fight scene is epic. One blogger http://www.fightingmaster.com... opined,

"The fight between the two of them is, in my opinion, the most sophisticated fight ever captured on film. It may not look as stylish as some Jackie Chan or Jet Li fights but that is only the surface. Deep down this fighting sequence uses all the wisdom and martial arts knowledge that made Bruce Lee a legend. It was the first time that Bruce Lee as writer, producer and director had the creative freedom to do whatever he wished. The result is a final gladiatorial duel with 7 times world karate champion, Chuck Norris in the Coliseum. Two worlds collide in this fight: Chuck's modern karate style fighting and Jeet Kune Do. If there were a martial arts film museum, this fight would be in it."

After watching Ip Man last night (after finally getting around to finding a subtitle file) I can honestly say it's the best Kung Fu movie I've ever seen. I'm going to watch Ip Man 2 tonight.
