The Story Of Ricky:  One of the most brutal and over the top films ever.  The best part is most of the violence is unecessary to the scene but its one of those cases where it makes the movie.  Thumbup
I like the part where the guy cuts out his own guts and tries to use them to strangle Ricky.  Good stuff :D

Two of the greatest HK action/martial arts movies ever made IMHO:

# 54. Snake in the Eagles Shadow (1978) - starring Jackie Chan. (Great fighting/training!)

# 53. Magnificent Butcher (1979) - starring Sammo Hung.(As above, PLUS a great comedy!)

If you are a fan of Jackie, Sammo Hung, Kwan Tak-Hing(!), Yuen Siu Tien and/or his son Yuen Woo Ping, these films are wholeheartedly recommended! ("Hong Kong Legends" have fine releases of both movies.)

# 51. BLIND FIST OF BRUCE (1979) starring Bruce Li (who was always my personal fave of the guys who patterned themselves after the legendary Bruce Lee). This one proves a lot of fun even if it falls short in a lot of ways.

I hope this hasn't been nominated yet. . .

50. Kekko Kammen

She protect school girls from evil teachers.  It's a bit of silly 'sploitation action that's not for everyone so, if you're offended by nudity, you may want to steer clear because the heroine wears a red mask, red scarf, and red boots. . . and nothing else.  Otherwise good clean fun ninja super hero action.   TeddyR

Instead of scrolling through the last four pages, I'm just going to assume the next movie hadn't been nominated yet...

No.49 - Kung-Fu Kids Break Away! - The one and only time a movie starring children hasn't felt like someone kicking me in the brain repeatedly. Characters are actually endearing as a group of martial artist orphans team up with a freedom fighting homeless guy to stop an evil Lord. Awesome.

Not sure about Mister Vampire, Toy, but I know that Chinese Super Ninjas was already listed. Is anybody keeping a master list on this topic?  Question

I figured the thread meant "action AND/OR martial arts" :P

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
