Re: what is your best movie related to the martial arts

I'm a big Jackie Chan fan:
"snake in the eagles shadow"
"the young master"
"drunken master"

Older Hong Kong films often feature loooooong paired katas that are rarely found in the newer productions. One of my favourites is one called "Iron Monkey" which features 10 minute long duels with all kinds of fancy weapons, including the three section staff. Some of the sequences run uncut for several minutes. Imagine if they make one mistake, they must shoot the entire thing all over again!
(Not to be confused with the Jet Li remake, although I enjoy his films as well)
