This is so cool!
27 November 2000 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

The Best of the Martial Arts Films is so cool. It has some of the best fight scenes ever put on film. There's actors like Jackie Chan, Bruce Lee, Chuck Norris, and many asian martial artists you've never heard of, but need to check out. This video open my world up to films that I never knew were ever out there. They should make a part 2!!
