Man, it is so hard to pick one. I like a ton of them but if I were to pick a martial arts film based on technicality alone, it would probably be one of those old-school 70's Kung Fu Theater movies (without all the wires and the flying stuff) with those old guys like Hwang Jang Lee and Delon Tan and all them. However, surprisingly technique and spiffy moves alone don't do it for me unless the story and premise supplements it well (which they didn't, the plots were horrible and so was the voice dubbing for that matter, hehe). So nowadays we have more gun fights and the fight scenes are a bit shorter but the plots can 'sometimes' be somewhat better. So putting those two important elements together, I would have to pick Fist of Legend, even though I feel that many individual scenes were better in Drunken Master 2 (end fight between Jackie and Ken Lo) and Iron Monkey (no shadow kick! ) and many others.

Also I would like to note that my experience with martial arts films has been limited to either American ones or Hong Kong/Chinese films. I haven't had the chance to get my hands on any Korean or Japanese or any other material that may have more to offer so perhaps I could be a bit biased

I can't think of a best one because there are so many, but I can think of an awesome one I just saw. Warriors Two, the best Wing Chun captured on film, I even think it's better than Prodigal Son.

Oh crap! LOL Thank u for reminding me. I forgot about Prodigal Son. That is definitely one that I forgot to list on my Top 5. The handwork in this film was so fast and impressive (and yet the camera is not undercranked or sped up) that on a technical level it probably beat out most, if not all, old-school kung fu choreography. I did not get to check out Warriors Two yet. Maybe I should, haha.

Enter the Dragon great flick.....also enjoy Perfect Weapon with jeff speakman not a perfect film but great fight scenes.

Worst ever.......Kill or be killed with south african james ryan.....ugggg.....great fight scenes worst plot ever.......

Best fight scene ever....Bruce Lee vs. Chuck Norris....Chuck Norris vs. Bill Wallace

Fight scene I wish was real.Chuck Norris vs. David Carradine in Lone Wolf McQuade can not stand that fake kung fu actor carradine...robbed Bruce of tv series years ago and still pretending to be a master.

Biggest disappointment...Jean Claude Van Damme he looks good on screen but man who picks his scripts.
