So who here's enjoys some good martial arts movies or thrilling asian drama. Who gets excited when they see Jackie Chan or Tony Jaa kicking ass?
If so, what are your favourites?

The majority of Asian cinema that I have seen was on SBS back in the analogue signal days - and since I would invariably cone into the program half-way through, I have no idea what the names of the movies are.

But their police action movies (esp. John Woo's movies) are hilariously over the top and good fun to watch. Their horror is brilliantly cerebral, relying heavily on the super-natural, rather then the evil of mankind.

Jackie Chan movies always get the tick of approval though, especially Rumble in the Bronx - the hovercraft chase ensures two thumbs up from me.

Jackie Chan movies are the best man, i will always sit down and watch his stuff.

2 movies I suggest people have a look if they're looking for something different is The Raid(i'm just about to watch it) and Oldboy.
