(Just one of the reasons why you should rent “The Story of Ricky” immediately.)

Long before we became obsessed with MMA, martial arts flicks satisfied our thirst for blood. We now pay tribute to the best of the best — and the kickass fight scenes and iconic stars that made these movies so essential. Click the links for video clips, and let us know how you feel in the comments section…

Say what you will about Kickboxer. but it delivers what it promises. Jean-Claude Van Damme plays Kurt Sloane, the European-accented brother to an American kickboxing champion (?) who travels to Thailand only to be paralyzed by the vicious Tong Po. It isn’t until Sloane seeks out the wisdom and awesomely unorthodox training of Xian Chow that he is ready to seek revenge in a formidable underground match that features no shortage of broken glass-encrusted fists and long, drawn-out screams.

Best Ass-Kicking: How do you prepare for the fight of your life? By getting drunk and beating up bar patrons while dancing horribly in pleated pants. How else?

Classic Quote: “I tell them you say they no good fighters… and that their mothers have sex with mules.” (Xian Chow )

Widely considered to be Jackie Chan’s masterwork, The Legend of Drunken Master centers on a good-natured devotee of “drunken boxing,” who — like Popeye with his spinach — becomes an unstoppable force whenever he gets some booze in him. It’s a perfect representation of Chan’s trademark mix of slapstick comedy, white-knuckle stunts, and machine gun-paced kung fu, and the climactic eight-minute sequence is possibly the most astounding piece of fight choreography committed to film. If the whole movie was like that, Drunken Master would be much higher on our list. Unfortunately there’s a lot of filler about ginseng roots and Película del Oeste imperialism that you have to wade through to get to the good stuff.

Best ass-kicking: The aforementioned final fight between Wong Fei-hung (Chan) and the movie’s two villains, which features fire-breathing, an attempted chin-in-eye submission, and some truly diabolical feats of agility.

Classic quote: “What does it mean when there’s a picture of a skull?” “Good Stuff!” (Mrs. Wong and Wong Fei-hung )

These days, Tony Jaa is the only action star worth watching. His films are marked by a high-impact ultra-realism, due to the fact that he’s genuinely kicking the shit out of his unfortunate co-stars. (Like Jackie Chan, Jaa also foregoes the use of wires and body-doubles.) In The Protector. he plays Kham, a man trained in Muay Thai as a guard/caretaker of his family’s sacred elephants. When his father is murdered and their prize elephant is stolen by a smuggling ring, Kham is sent into a kill-crazy rampage for justice. From his vicious arm-breaking spree near the end of the movie to his face-off against a pack of roided-out man-freaks, it’s a thrilling showcase of Jaa’s awe-inspiring abilities.

Best ass-kicking: The monumental tracking shot as Kham makes his way to the hideout of the smugglers. Four minutes of uninterrupted destruction, with no camera cuts — an absolute must-see.

Classic quote: “He came from Thailand; a stranger who lived by a code of honor that we have all but forgotten. His were the old ways, and there were those who mocked him for it. But his was the right path. The just path. And for me, he will always be a hero.” (Mark )

It’s hokey and it’s dated, but it’s still the classic that had kids in the eighties signing up for karate lessons and wearing flimsy gi’s as pajamas. I mean, at least I heard some kids did that, the losers. Daniel LaRussa is everyone’s favorite underdog as he stands up to the bullies at the Cobra Kai with Mr. Miagi’s help and romances Elizabeth Shue en route to winning a karate tournament and being declared “all right” by the formidable Johnny Lawrence.

Classic Quote: “Fear does not exist in this dojo, does it?” “No, sensei!” (John Kreese and Cobra Kai )

It might just be the most batshit crazy cult classic of all time — and it’s definitely the grossest. Riki-Oh tells the tale of a young man born with superhuman strength, who is sent to prison after avenging his girlfriend’s sort-of-accidental death. Since it’s the year 2001 (!), all prisons are privately-owned, and this one is run by a corrupt warden and his henchmen in the Gang of Four. Ricky quickly lands on their shitlist, and spends most of the movie fighting for his life. Along the way, heads are crushed, eyeballs are punctured, and Ricky is nearly strangled with an attacker’s intestines. Trust us, it’s absolutely hilarious.

Best ass-kicking: Ricky punches holes through two men in the shower room; an honorable mention goes to his unforgettable demolition of Tarzan (clips from both scenes can be seen here. at the 0:51-1:34 and 2:13-2:37 marks).

Classic quote: “You got a lotta guts, Oscar!” (Assistant Warden )

Best of the Best is great, how you beat dislocating shoulders and “the ridge hand!”. Only with stunning Triple flying butterfly kicks executed flawlessly by the Rhee brothers. Also features Chris Penn and God. By God I mean James Earl Jones.

Also missing Jet fucking Li, what’s up. I suggest The One, for the awe-inspiring final sequence in which Li, playing both sides, demonstrates -perfectly- the classic Hsing-I vs. Bagua form. Each punch is accented by kodo drums adding to the impact of the scene.

I am sure that most have different opinions, but I see this as a guide to rent a couple of movies that I have heard about but not seen yet. Thanks.

I think if you put fight club on this list you have to put the matrix on as well.

decnt list lots of my favs on ther.e but IMO Jet Li’s Fist of legend is something to behold every fight is formidable and the whole movie is an homage to Bruce Lee.

Oh Ben. You knew you were asking for trouble when you put this list together.

“Bloodsport”: Yes. It was a groundbreaking martial arts film that really exposed the different styles of martial arts throughout the world.

“Kickboxer”: WTF? Are you serious? That is probably one JCVD WORST films. I’ll assume it was just the booze talkin’.

– Wu Jin’s “Lastimoso Contact” (Come on! It’s an MMA/streetfight flick)

– Donnie Yen’s two BRILLIANT, must-see films “Flash Point” and “SPL” aka: “Sha Po Lang”

– Director Walter Hill’s “Hard Times” with Charles Bronson as a depression era bare-knuckle brawler and “Streets of Fire”. Yes, I know S.O.F. is a cheesy 80’s music video of a movie, but the final fight scene with Maichael Pare and Willem Dafoe going at each other with pointed sledgehammers while the lead singer of the band Fear goads them on NEVER gets old!

– Jackie Chan’s groundbreaking “Police Story” and highly entertaning “The Big Brawl” aka “Battle Creek Brawl”.

– And the classic Chuck Norris masterpiece of ass-kickery: “Lone Wolf McQuade”.

Haven’t seen The Protector yet, but Ong Bak certainly has some outstanding Tony Jaa action scenes.

The best line from that is when his teacher tells him at the beginning that he should never use his Muay Thai skills. Then he proceeds to spend the next hour and a half using his Muay Thai skills.

No Jet Li movie made the list? Have you seen this guy fight? I don’t understand Karate Kid but no Jet li.

Seriously this list sucks. Where is ‘No Retreat, No Surrender’ and ‘Best of the Best’?

Ok I kind of agree with the ranking but Karate Kid over Jack Chan? I doubt it!
