American & Foreign Martial Arts Movies Collected On My 4TB External Hard Drive

by m_roberts_07 | created - 23 Jan 2013 | updated - 18 Jun 2016 | Public

I have collected as much of the old school American martial arts movies as possible. The dates range from late 70's to recent times.

You'll find that a few of these movies might possibly belong in the Action genre, but for me if the actors are martial artists or are known to have a strong background in martial arts then they belong in this section.

THE TOTAL FIGHT SCENES ARE COUNTED FOR ONLY WHEN EACH SCENE CHANGES.

I have never watched anything so crap in my entire life. This is one rare movie I couldn't finish. Too many gay boys posing as martial artists who clearly don't have the right skills to belong in this movie. All these pretty/gay boys have are their bodies and looks, that's it. I wish Cynthia thought differently about becoming a part of this absolute garbage. I keep it anyway just because Cynthia is in it.
