Since "The Matrix" introduced Western audiences to wire-fu, it seems we can't get enough of the flying, leaping, gravity-defying antics of the Hong Kong action heroes.
The genre-busting milestone that combines the action with a poetic heart and stunningly beautiful cinematography. A must-own.
Fans of superstar Chow Yun-Fat and legendary HK director John Woo like to compare the team to Mifune/Kurosawa, and "Hard Boiled" is their best work.
Jackie Chan returns to the role of Wong Fei Hung in this madcap adventure. The fights are jaw-dropping, and Chan's slapstick comedy works better than in most of his films.
Jet Li, baby. Another film about folk hero Wong Fei Hung, fending off pesky foreigners and treacherous Chinese. Director Tsui Hark delivers the non-stop kickin' goods.
If you liked the flying monks in "Crouching Tiger," "Zu" will make you giggle with happiness -- this special-effects freak-out is demented, goofy, and sacks of demonic fun.
For a tougher, bloodier angle, go with Woo's acclaimed 1990 drama about friendship, love, and betrayal set in Vietnam.
How can you go wrong with Jackie Chan, Michelle Yeoh, and Maggie Cheung in an international action adventure? You can't.
Excellent kung-fu and a bizarre sense of humor make this Jet Li vehicle a whacky HK favorite.
John Woo's early masterpiece. The gloriously choreographed violence and overdrawn characters make this a keeper. The shoot-up in the church is a timeless classic.
While it's not quite as strong as the first film, the second entry in the series is still a historical kung-fu bonanza that'll keep you grinning all the way through.
