Top 10 Most Underrated Martial Arts Films [Linwood’s Picks]
Linwood Storm has mentioned that he is always asked what are his all-time favorite martial arts films, however, we at GameCargo, wanted to ask him, what cinematic ventures of the genre impressed him, yet flew under the radar at the time or didn’t pick up steam until recent years due to our current ‘Information Age’? With the likes of television shows such as ‘Warrior’, ‘Wu Assassins’, and ‘Into the Badlands’ ushering in a new wave of martial arts action on the small screen, it is definitely important to put newer fans “on-game” in regard to pictures they normally wouldn’t find on mainstream lists.
Below are ten selected that Linwood feels deserves a spotlight shined on. Whether for being the first to introduce directorial techniques that feature brutal violence prior to ‘The Raid’ *cough* ‘Broken Path’ *cough* or wide long-take sequences that focus on the realistic movement of combat before ‘John Wick’ was even a thought, thanks to the franchises’ first fight choreographer Jonathan Eusebio also worked on ‘Haywire’.
Now, without further ado, enjoy the following trailers!
