Awesome Chinese/Martial Arts Films worth checking out

Post by Winston » October 27th, 2011, 12:02 pm

Hi all,
Check out these new awesome martial arts films I found. They are epics.

Ip Man 2 (2010)

Bruce Lee's teacher, Ip Man, fights a British Boxer in a showdown in Hong Kong. Great action, but a bit cliched. A Rocky type story.

Trailer



Full movie Part 1



Young Bruce Lee, aka "Bruce Lee, My Brother" (2011)

A new film about Bruce Lee's childhood and youth growing up in Hong Kong. The actor who plays Bruce Lee is superb.

Trailer



This next one looks spectacular.

Shaolin (2011)

China's last imperial Dynasty has fallen and a ruthless warlord (Andy Lau, House of the Flying Daggers) amasses a vast fortune through the violent subjugation of his people. Faced with a brutal betrayal, he runs for his life, seeking redemption in the fabled Shaolin Temple. When his enemies discover his location, he must stand with his new brothers and fight his life's greatest battle...

With breathtaking action from the martial arts director of The Transporter 1&2 and an all-star cast of Kung Fu superstars, Shaolin sets a new benchmark for Asian Action Cinema!

Trailer



The Sorcerer and The White Snake (2011)

Director:Siu-Tung Ching
Stars:Jet Li, Vivian Hsu and Shengyi Huang
White Snake (Eva Huang), while in the guise of a beautiful woman, falls in love with a young herbalist named Xu Xian (Raymond Lam). Using the help of the Green Snake (Charlene Choi) is a risk to life is sent to the human world and married to Xu Xian. However, ironically, it goes way Fa Hai (Jet Li), a magician from the temple Zing Shan. A furious battle is about to begin ...

Trailer



You can download the films above at Piratebay.org or Bitlordsearch.com. Btw, the new film about Bruce Lee is under the title "Bruce Lee My Brother" in the torrents.

Ip Man 1 is epic. Ip Man 2 slightly less but still good. I also really liked Kung Fu Hustle.

Check out this new Chinese movie called "The Assassins" with Chow Yun Fat. It has English subtitles and feminine cute looking Chinese girls. It's supposed to be really good.



Description in Chinese:

《铜雀台》中周润发领衔众实力群星联袂演绎,在尊重史实的基础上,每个人物都有新颖而独特的性格解读,而这些人均用不同手段欲图达到同一个目的:杀死曹操。片中情节因此展­开,多方势力争相"杀曹",展现出三国乱世汉室朝野"情、色、权、谋"之争,利刃见血,杀机四起、暗战重重。因而每位明星也都身肩不同重任,有人融情,有人使色,有人弄权­,有人设谋,皆为一个"杀"字,目标都是曹操。...


Next, check out this older film from 1995 called "Lover of the Last Empress" about the female empress who ruled China before "The Last Emperor" did. She rose to power by first becoming the Emperor's favorite concubine, and then succeeding him after he died. It contains some passionate sex scenes. I wonder if Chinese women make love like that in real life. lol. Do they open their mouths and close their eyes in passion and wrap their arms around you? All the Chinese women I've met have been much colder than that.

Lover of the Last Empress



Here is the full director's cut of the masterpiece film "The Last Emperor" made in 1987, about the life of the last emperor of China. Peter O'Toole (from Lawrence of Arabia) stars as the emperor's tutor. This is an extended director's cut that is nearly 4 hours long. The musical score is a masterpiece too.

Check out this 80's flick "American Shaolin". The plot is similar to The Karate Kid where a white guy studies martial arts to win a tournament. It's very stereotypical, cliched, and predictable, and shows him walking on The Great Wall of China. lol. The American kid looks a lot like Eurobrat. lol

Another cheesy 80's flick.

The Last Ninja (1983)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kKfrkBe7MtE

Another cheesy martial arts film series, the kind that is so bad that it's good. lol
