Martial arts films are a specific subgenre of the action field that often include creative and complex plots and characters, along with scenes of intense action and stunts. They often star actors who are real martial artists like Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan, and Jet Li. While everybody loves a good kung-fu fight on screen, it takes more than just that to make a great martial arts film. In celebration of the upcoming martial arts drama THE GRANDMASTER, starring Tony Leung, we take a look back at some of the best martial arts films of all time.


Once Upon A Time In China

Jet Li stars in ONCE UPON A TIME IN CHINA – the incredibly successful martial arts film that catapulted his career. It follows legendary martial arts hero Wong Fei-Hung and tells the story of his stance against English, French and American plundering of China. Directed by Tsui Hark, the film is a dazzling and colourful spectacle. Li is captivating with his acting ability, his agility and grace and his athletic skill. The film leaves you wanting more, and you can certainly get it from the four sequels that were created in the years following the first success.
