While it's undeniable that kung fu movies are all about the action, the more depth there is behind the fighting, the more memorable the film. In fact, the best martial arts movies feature complicated characters that can do more than simply kick the crap out of someone or paralyze them with a single punch (though that's still pretty cool to watch).

Whether they're cunning, sarcastic, funny, or just plain cool, the best kung fu characters are always memorable enough to stick with you long after the film is over. Whether it's Neo learning to channel his inner warrior in The Matrix or Bruce Lee taking on a drug kingpin in Enter the Dragon, these warriors have what it takes to get the job done. Who’s your favorite kung fu fighter?

Vote up your favorite martial artist and see which character is the strongest of them all.
