Tiger Martial Arts at the Cinema, Mr Stocker on the Big Screen - Martial Arts Movies

Once Upon a time in China

This is the film that kick-started Hong Kong cinema’s renaissance in Kung Fu, and what helped launched Jet Li towards a future of western action movies. Jet Li’s character, Wong Fei-Hung was a real person, a turn of a century martial arts master, and who became something of a folk hero like Sherlock Holmes or Robin Hood.

 

Li is simply incredible in the role, he brings the American style cinema to the kung-fu genre, which is why this film sits perfectly at number 10 on our top martial arts films.

Yojimibo

This film also drew upon the American pulp fiction for the ploy, particularly the John Wayne ere of Westerns. This film follows a lonely, disgraced, and a certainly hungry samurai who wanders into a town where two factions are in eternal conflict, glaring at one another from their matching headquarters on opposite sides of town. This pays homage to the classic western genre, a ghost-like town, two conflicting factions and a man with no name, in this instance – a samurai.

A touch of Zen

This film is most notable these days as the template for Ang Lee’s Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, which is set in the 14th century story of an artist, Ku, who encounters a beautiful woman, and the two grow a master and student relationship which we see in many American films today, such as Karate Kid, Spaghetti Westerns, etc. The story absorbs elements of comedy and romance, as well as carrying the mantle of a really good action paced film.

The Raid

The Raid is a Welsh/Korean action heist film – yes, you heard us right! The film is directed by Welsh film director Gareth Edwards who is well-known for directing Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The plot is as simple as its choreography is complicated. A Police unit sets out one morning to seize control of a tower block that has fallen into the hands of a rival gang.

 

The film is absent of dialogue, but the weapons and violence do the talking. This isn’t for the faint heart, we recommend that you watch it but not with the Grandparents or children nearby at Christmas – believe us, they’ll be speechless for days.
