Top 10 Favorite Martial-Arts Action Directors [Linwood’s Picks]

Yuen Woo-ping

We often bring up the action films that are absolutely adored by us, however, without the directors orchestrating the beautiful violence, there wouldn’t be any excitement. Scott Adkins has done a perfect job highlighting such men and women, especially the actors, who are responsible for the amazingly constructed combat that we see on the screen on his podcast ‘The Art of Action’ and today and I will showcase my personal favorite directors that specify in martial-arts carnage, who I also partially credit for the style that I’ve developed as a filmmaker who gravitates more toward the genre than any other. If you have your own picks, make sure to comment below. We love to hear from our followers on GameCargo!
