List Rules Vote up your favorite martial arts films that were released in the 2000s

The best 2000s kung fun and martial arts movies are a diverse mix of Hollywood blockbusters and cult hits from across the globe. Some of them were filmed in the United States or Europe, while others were filmed more traditionally in Asia. The common thread uniting all of them are the kickass action sequences that will inspire you to try a few martial arts moves of your own!


In the below list of the best '00s kung fu films, you’ll find venerated franchises like
Kill Bill and The Matrix. Uma Thurman and Keanu Reeves use tried-and-true kung fu moves on their enemies, leaving scores of foes in their wake as they go on to save the day and seek vengeance. Also on this list, you'll find a healthy dose of comedy martial arts, in titles like The Foot Fist Way (starring Danny McBride) and Kung Fu Panda (voiced by Jack Black).


When considering the best kung fu movies, you can't forget to leave out the classics that paved the way for the rest of these iconic films.
Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon became a sleeper hit, garnering numerous awards and accolades for its fight sequences and compelling story.
