The All-Time Greatest Martial Art Movies

List Criteria: Movies must have martial arts in them.

All the best movies with martial arts action compiled into a list of the best martial art movies. Martial arts movies are amazing to watch, so they're a perfect fit for film. From the revenge tactics of The Bride in the Kill Bill series to the martial arts mastery of Bruce Lee in Enter the Dragon and Way of the Dragon (among many others), this list of movies with martial arts is a great fit for anyone who loves action.

Martial arts films have been with us for decades. This list includes all different forms of martial arts including karate, jiu jitsu, kenpo, muay thai, and many other fighting techniques. While most of these films are action oriented, some are also comedic (like Rush Hour and Shanghai Noon), or even animated (Kung Fu Panda). Martial art movies are also the perfect kind of film that a dad can enjoy with this teenage son or any other action-loving family member. If you're into martial art movies, then this is the list for you.

What are the best martial arts movies? Take a look at this list and you'll see for yourself.
