I saw the film a while ago but this clip was pretty cool. Plus Jaime Pressley is awesome.

I also liked the song on here too. Normally I don't care too much about what's playing, but this one was different.

I very much enjoyed the Kill Bill movies. P.S. I also am a big fan of real mixed martial art fighting. UFC ect.

For fans of Martial Arts movies, i recommand these movies:

"The 36th chamber of Shoalin"
"Once upon a time in China"

The main actor of the 36th chamber is Gordon Liu, which plays the old master in Kill Bill 2. An homage from Tarantino.

I saw Five Deadly Venoms a while ago. That movie was pretty good. DOA wasn't great but that video clip caught my eye because of Jaime Pressley and the song playing on it.

I have a fondness for kung fu/martial arts movies.

Some of my favorites include:

Shogun Assassin This is actually one of my favorite movies across genres because of the great story telling. (This film was also featured in the second Kill Bill movie near the end, where the small girl was watching her favorite movie - which was Shogun Assassin)

New Dragon Gate Inn

Drunken Master (the first movie - though get the subtitled version if you can - the dubbed version just doesn't appease me)

Zatoichi

Most Kurosawa, especially Seven Samurai and The Hidden Fortress (though these are more story driven rather than action driven)

As for recent, or 'westernized' movies. I've enjoyed:

The Last Samurai

Ghost Dog - Cult Classic

Obviously Kill Bill 1 and 2

There are probably a good number more.

For hardcore no wires action, check Tony Jaa.

Forbidden Kingdom is about as good as it gets for martial arts fantasy, and tells the story of the legendary Monkey King.
We all remember Monkey right? ;)
