Kung Fu Cinema

Kung FuKung Fu Theater was to the 70s and 80s what anime was to the 90s, it was the cool thing to watch and knowing the “good ones” placed you in the know and made you cool with everyone who was into it. Newcomers to the genre probably have a hard time understanding the love for it and wonder what it is that makes us fans so crazy about it.

If asked, “what makes an old Kung Fu movie good?” I would answer with the following list of: 1. Kung Fu, 2. Fantasy 3. Honor and Master/Student Relationships.

So if any of this interests you, then you should really check out my list of “must-see” Kung Fu classics. Below I will review all of the films that I remember from my youth and tell you why they are considered my favorites. They don’t make them like they used to and it is worth your while to grab them while you can.
