Chinese Films
Kung Fu Films

An enormous number of films have been made featuring Kung Fu and Martial Arts. China has several dedicated film studio's that only produce Kung Fu films, although many of the early films were shot in Hong Kong

We highlight the leading stars and name some films that are very worth watching, spanning about four decades up to 2009. These will notably be 'Action' Martial Arts films + a select few dealing with more serious and related subjects

Virtually all films can be found on the likes of YouKu and Ku6 (Chinese YouTube), but searching for them is usually best done in Chinese characters. We will append a list of links to some good stuff below, and add to it as as and when possible

Finally, please be aware that many of these films will be in Chinese language with both English and Chinese subtitles. Modern films usually include a spoken English option. Where possible we will include the language and subtitle options available on DVD's

Actor Listings:

Bruce Lee Cantonese Name Lai Siu Long 李小龙
Image: Bruce Lee 3 decades after his death, Bruce Lee is still considered the Master of Kung Fu film. He was the first to break through to Western audiences, and he set such a high benchmark of excellence that few have challenged him to this day. He is China's greatest movie star. Recently Guangzhou (Canton) TV has released a seemingly endless serial about his early life, enhanced by a young actor who looks and appears the part

Jet Li
Cantonese Name Lai Lin Gie 李连杰
Mandarin Li Lian Jie
Image: Jet Li Arguably the first actor to truly challenge for Bruce Lee's crown, with excellent technique and screen presence. Jet Li has been crowned World Wushu Champion many times. He has starred in about 50 Kung Fu films to date (Mainly in Mandarin), before breaking through to win Hollywood acclaim for supporting roles in noteworthy movies such as: Lethal Weapon 4.

In Chinese films he has often taken the leading role portraying Wong Fei Hong (Huang Fei Hong), a real person of Chinese Kung Fu and Hung Gar history. These are readily recognisable because of the shaved forehead + ponytail = a real life and deeply resented Qing Dynasty emasculation of Chinese men

You may not be aware that he has also Produced 13 films; Written 1 (The Kiss of the Dragon), and Directed 1 film (Zhong hua ying xiong)

Jackie Chan Cantonese Name Xing Long  成龙
Image: Jackie Chan The irrepressible Jackie Chan broke open the gates Bruce Lee left ajar. His excellent acting and Kung Fu skills are usually accompanied by comedy routines. He performs all his own stunts, and often gets injured. His first Hollywood role was a bit-part in Cannonball Run, the fight scene - which is usually cut for some stupid reason? He has made 100's of films, which recently have included some showing his serious acting abilities. He also does much work for film and charity, and has an acting school in Hong Kong

He has been in movies a very, very long time, and as a youngster played the part of Bruce Lee's main challenger in Enter The Dragon. He often appears alongside Jackie Chan and Andy Lau, and recently had a USA TV series

Andy Lau Cantonese Name Wha Zhi
Image: Andy Lau Andy Lau is Hong Kong's most versatile artist with a career which started in 1982. He is the only person we are featuring in both our Music and Film sections. Andy is not a Kung Fu artist and should perhaps be in our General film category? However, some of his most notable roles have been in Kung Fu movies - often as Police Chief

Ip Man Cantonese Name Ip Man 葉問 or 叶问
Image: Ip Man Film Adapted from the true life story of Ip Man - the Grand Master of the Wing Chun style kung fu, and sifu of legendary kung fu superstar Bruce Lee. This movie is the first important record of the master’s life. Ip's persistent devotion to Wing Chun is a classic example of the love and respect shown to wushu and the freedom and spirit it represents. Ip Man is a concept, a spirit, a way of thinking - and it exemplifies a new peak in Hong Kong's wushu movies.
