Looking for some
good entertaining asian action movies, kung fu, shoot em ups, crazy cyborgs, whatever.
I have a very good saga for you then and for everyone that enjoys good quality asian movies.
3 days ago I have watched George Lucas's "Rogue One", meeeh, not too impressed, but the movie had Donnie Yen in it, for those unfamiliar with the name, he played alongside Jet Li in "Hero" and other great Asian movies. That made me remember of his movies "IP Man
which in my opinion as a drama fan wore pretty satisfying both in the amount of drama content as well as in the kung fu one. I have seen 2 days ago IP Man 3
as it was released in 2015 being remembered of the series, was good too, almost at the lvl of the 1st 2 movies. Do dare to watch them, they are superb.
The One was pretty good
I also enjoyed Jet Li's Fearless
'The One' was a US production
I think we wore here once before, weren't we?
Jet Li was my favorite actor for the duration of my youth, best Jet Li movies in my opinion are Fearless, Swordsman II, Twin Warriors
(which was my absolute favorite when I was like 12-14), Fist of Legend, Lethal Weapon 4
(here he's the villain).Wong Fei Hung I,II&III, Red Dragon, The One, Romeo Must Die, Shu dan long wei
(because it's also goof comedy
), Black Mask, Kiss of The Dragon, Unleashed, The Forbidden Kingdom
also deserve mentioning.
If anyone knows of some movies that fit, I'd appreciate the recommendations
All the movies suggested in this post fit your criteria. The age of the movies is not an issue. Convince yourself.
BTW, I also recommend Swordsman
and Swordsman III
, even if they don't have Jet Li in the cast.
It's not easy to find a damn english subtitles for some of these movies though.
Warning, warning: DO NOT WATCH THEM IN ENGLISH DUBBING! WARNING! It's beyond retarded. I mean... who the f does these stuff!?*headbang*
I don't know if anyone else agrees with this, but whoever decides movies should be dubbed, regardless of the language, should just be shot on sight, without warning so there's little chance of escape!!! They are a danger to intelligent society, a grave one.
I mean... Russel Crowe said once "The italian voice that did me in Gladiator was brilliant, I think he did me better them myself!
M8, NO! REALLY NO! Don't even joke with this stuff! -_-
Side note: italians don't even know how to speak english because everything is f dubbed in their country. It's just sad... and infuriating, and... sad.
