The best kung fu movies of 2011.  Although the emphasis should be on the fighting and the action scenes, it's hard to stomach movies with zero storyline or cardboard acting.  Thus, besides the fighting, some points should be given to well rounded films.

The production quality of this film is high.  The costumes and sets look beautiful.  The storyline is different than the usual fighting fare and is similar to Sherlock Holmes but with wire-work fighting.  The fighting sequences are pretty good too.

Starring: Andy Lau, Carina Lau, and Bingbing Li
Director: Hark Tsui

I have no idea what the story is but it looks decent.  The fighting styles are probably more stylish than substance but that could be fun to watch too!

 

it has sweet touch to it... really loved the ending.... rest its true.. fuck physics... it combines demons and flying humans, but lacks serious hand to hand combat.

Is there a reason why u be typin like sum ghetto fool.. or are you trying to be cool and trying to sound more urban? Either way it makes you seem mildly stupid, I hope your not one of those fools who thinks he knows martial arts from watching movies instead of taking some classes. You should try a class and hopefully you don't wear your jeans hanging off your baggy boxers.

A Chinese Fairy Tale (A Chinese Ghost Story 2011)

Seems like not only Hollywood is into rebooting franchises these days.  A Chinese Fairy Tale is a reboot of the 1987 A Chinese Ghost Story, which was and still is an awesome film.  So far, the action sequences look decent and since it's a reboot, we already know the storyline is superb.

Grammar and spelling go a long way, especially when trying to insult someone. As a result, you now look like more of an idiot.

Just Call Me Nobody

Score:

A comedy or even a parody of martial arts films by the look of it but nevertheless, some of the scenes look pretty promising action-wise.

 

 

This film doesn't belong on the list, the fighting scenes are few in between and not done very well.  The film itself as a parody isn't all that bad but it's not great either.
