Default Good Martial Arts Movies

Was really into martial movies growing up, had about hundred different martial arts movies on vhs, but about five years ago I lost interest for some reason. Then I just watch Ip man 1 and 2 and it reignited my interest again. Anyone know any good martial arts movies made in the last 5 years?

In that time not so much, have you seen Ong Bak (I think thats what its called), if not it was a great movie and I'd recommend it. I watched IP Man recently too and loved it, and I also somewhat enjoy the Forbidden Kingdom with Jet Li and Jackie Chan, they have a good fight scene but otherwise its not the best. We're starved for good movies, bring back old school Jackie Chan haha

i'm not a martial arts movie connoisseur, but i really enjoyed Ninja Assassin. it's not the movie to see if you want realistic fight scenes though. they took a lot of liberties with the fighting, but it was entertaining none the less.

I actually forgot about Ninja Assassin, it had a cool concept, the fight at the end was pretty awesome, I also liked how fake it looked with the blood and stuff, added its own element to the movie I thought that you don't really see a lot

Shinobi: Heart Under Blade (Yes, it's a romance... between rival ninja clans.)
Redbelt (It's American, don't let that stop you.)
The Forbidden Kingdom (I second this.)
JCVD (Not sure it really counts, but this is Jean Claude Van Damme playing a has-been action star caught up in a bank robbery.)

Haven't really seen anything in the past couple years though.

I also second Ong Bak and recommend Tom Yum Goong. Tony Jaa is just amazing (though certifiably insane--no really, he had a mental breakdown during one of the Ong Bak sequels, which is why I don't recommend them).

Some others that I recommend (which are older than five years and which you may know about are): Iron Monkey (the fight scenes in Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon were first done in this movie), House of the Flying Daggers, and Hero.

And if you liked Ip Man, then consider checking out the forthcoming The Grandmasters.

I've seen Ong Bak. Kung Fu Hustle, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, and Hero, but I'll check out the rest. Thanks.

Unleashed with Jet Li is pretty good. I second Hero and Ong Bak. I have to say, I've been in a kung fu drought lately. I haven't seen any good ones in quite a while.

I was going to suggest Unleashed. I was big into martial arts about ten years ago, but I'm starting to get the interest again.

The One is a nice little Jet Li movie. It has the premise that the only person who can beat Jet Li is Jet Li from a different universe.
