    Here are my favorite 20, but I include one Japanese Jidaigeki films in the spirit of the martial prowess demonstrated, though it's not a true "kung fu" film:

    1. Swordsman II (1992)
    2. Lone Wolf and Cub: Baby Cart at the River Styx (1972), re-edited into the equally good Shogun Assassin in 1980
    3. Project A, Part II (1987)
    4. A Touch of Zen (1969)
    5. Ashes of Time (1994)
    6. The Heroic Trio (1993)
    7. Police Story (1985)
    8. The Legend of Fong Sai Yuk (1993)
    9. Dragon Gate Inn (1992)
    10. One-Armed Swordsman (1967)
    11. So Close (2002)
    12. Once Upon a Time in China (1991)
    13. Kung Fu Hustle (2004)
    14. Hero (2002)
    15. Operation Condor: Armour of God II (1991)
    16. Police Story 3: Super Cop (1992)
    17. Ong-bak: Muay Thai Warrior (2003)
    18. Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (2000)
    19. The Chinese Connection, aka Fist of Fury (1972)
    20. Iron Monkey (1993)

    I feel bad that only one Bruce Lee movie made it on the list, but his movies lack the stronger stories and acting and artistry that characterize most of the later films on the list. There are 4 Jackie Chan, 4 Jet Li, and 3 Michelle Yeoh films on the list (Supercop is both a Jackie and Michelle film).

I gotta watch like all of those! I've seen a bunch of them, but none of them lately.
