>Jet li's unleashed

Are you kidding ?  Who wants to see the sensitive side of someone who likes to play piano, then
kill people.  The whole story was unbalanced, part of the genre of generalist movies that are
tolerable by everyone but appeal to no one.  The martial arts moves were ok, though they looked
really fake as they seemed sped up too much.   I thought this movie was totally lame.

Wow... What a list. Here's a couple of martial arts movies for the "other" category.

"Vision Quest"- classic highschool wrestling movie
"Reversal"- another good wrestling movie

"By The Sword"- best fencing movie
"Mask of Zorro"- more fencing

"Girlfight"- another boxing movie

"Hard Times" with Charles Bronson- one of the best street boxing movies

Am I the only one who has seen AZUMI??
This ninja film is great. And the hero is pretty hot.

Lone Wolf and Cub series is another of my favorites.

These are subtitled but I like it better that way.

If you don't like subs, Shoguns Assasin wich is made from the Lone Wolf and Cub series is a good watch and  has pretty good dubbing.

Ghost Warrior is also a good one, it's about a samurai who falls into a frozen lake and is brought back to life in the future.

Although the movie is a new release, I would like to add "Pit Fighter" for its legitimate *and* entertaining martial arts choreography.  It's a movie about an assassin for the Mexican underworld whom lost his memory.
The feel is that of the movie "traffic", perhaps in part due to its sharing of at least one character.  This is one of the better fighting-oriented movies I've seen, with only one cheesy scene: a realistic eyeball hanging out of its socket after a kick during a pit fight.  I like the fact that an eye injury is shown in a fight because it is a fact of life, but I don't think that is needs to be illustrated with a close up.

Fist of Legend---Jet Li


I think this is one of jet li's best films. Most of the fighting scenes are his true ability. In his recent U.S. films, they make it unrealistic. Jet Li is one of the best. They dont need to tamper with his skills.

Are ALL these in the last list recently added
actual movies of significance?

Wow.
Significant to one might not be to another.  I put The Last Samurai in my top 5 movies on any genre.  I have talked to people that couldn't sit through the whole thing.  Go figure!I also really enjoyed the The Bourne Identity and Supremacy.
