My favorite 40 classic Kung Fu movies,I will leave it up to you guys to vote on the order.. You may notice no Bruce Lee or Jacky Chan that is not because i overlooked them, while I do respect both,(Bruce for what he did for Martial arts cinema, and Jackie's early films were pretty good) I just wouldn't put either actors films in my personal top 40. I also didn't include Shaw Brothers films because I will do a top 20 Shaw Brothers films also. Enjoy
