If you haven't seen IP Man (the story of Bruce Lee's techer), GO WATCH IT! Probably one of the best Kung Fu flicks of all time, in my opinion. Red Box that MoFo!

Synopsis: Behind every great man there lies a teacher, and this was certainly true of Bruce Lee, who claimed as his mentor a martial arts expert named Ip Man (1893-1972). A genius of Wing Chun, Ip Man grew up in a China nearly ripped to pieces by racial hatred, nationalistic strife, and warfare. He rose like a phoenix above these ashes, however, courtesy of his participation in matches against various Wushu masters and kung fu warriors -- ultimately training martial arts icons such as Bruce Lee. This biopic from director Wilson Yip dramatizes Ip's life story.
