I have collected Top 10 best movies of legendary Donnie Yen along with video.
Ip Man is the first film in a planned Series.It is a 2008 Hong Kong semi biographical martial arts film based on the life of Yip Man, a grandmaster of the martial art.
The film was directed by Wilson Yip.Donnie Yen has always been serious about martial arts, and he certainly delivers in his portrayal of the founder of Wing Chun.
Donnie .Yen spent months preparing for the role by going on a strict diet which consisted of eating one meal a day, training in Wing Chun, and learning more about Ip Man through his two sons.
This was all in the hopes of portraying an erudite and cultured Ip Man, as well as bringing out the special traits of Wing Chun
Donnie Yen is my one of the best action stars in Asia. His work as an action choreographer has become increasingly in demand over the last few years, and I am a great fan of Yen.
Everyone involved contributed great performances to the film and really added depth and believability to the film’s story.
Yen is doing double duty here with his role in the film and acting as fight choreographer. His choreography delivers some wonderfully brutal fight scenes that leave you begging for more.
If you’re a fan of Donnie Yen, this is a must own.KillZone (S.P.L) is one of the best movies of Yen.It stays in the number one position in Hong Kong Box Office.
Ip Man 2 is Yen’s one of the hilarious Movies ever.
Let me explain, Ip Man was a grandmaster of Wing Chun martial arts. Set in the 1950’s, is about him starting a Wing Chun school and the real life ending where 10 year-old Bruce Lee came and wanted to be his student.
Ip Man 2 is quite good, lots of fighting scenes but the storyline is fantastic and just simple. Ip Man 2 closely resembles the format that made its predecessor a blockbuster hit.
Flash Point only seems to aim at pleasing action fans,with intense action sequence begins with a standoff using automatic weapons that help to rid the cast of unwanted extras and splatters the camera lens with blood.
But when the bullets run out, Yen and Chou lock into a bone-crunching and devastating hand-to-hand brawl that features some of these martial artists’ most brutal fight choreography caught on film.
Flash Point was repeatedly hailed as a prequel to the 2005 film KillZone, which was Wilson Yip and Donnie Yen's first feature-film collaboration as director and star respectively.
Yen denied the KillZone prequel reports, claiming that Flash Point was a completely original film.
Iron Monkey was one of the best Asian film I ever watched. It’s a classic movie in my list.
In a city where poor, desperate peasants are taken advantage of by greedy merchants and corrupt bureaucrats, the Iron Monkey swoops around by night, playing Robin Hood, ensuring that the people have enough to eat and their masters get smacked on the nose.
Iron Monkey delivers a simple and satisfying good vs. evil buddy story with mind-blowing action sequences and what may be the best villain entrance ever.I have shared some clips,watch and enjoy.
Dragon Tiger Gate is a 2006 Hong Kong martial arts action film directed by Wilson Yip and featuring fight choreography by Donnie Yen, who also stars in the film.So what does Dragon Tiger Gate do well?
Well, the promotional materials promise a load of martial arts action and the film certainly delivers that. It’s a basic movie, constructed from basic plots, with its one saving grace being the intricate action choreography by Donnie Yen.
Needless to say, you won’t be spending a whole lot of time trying to figure out what is happening in Dragon Tiger Gate.
If you are unfamiliar with Donnie Yen I hope this list proved useful and you get to experience him first-hand.
Hero is one of the great films made ever. I got a fabulous experience, filled with brilliant performances from end to end, including cinematography, acting and directing.
The cinematography is nothing short of breathtaking. And it’s a return to form for Jet Li, whose American efforts never reached the potential of his earlier Chinese films and who now finally has a project worthy of his talent.
Donnie Yen’s character plays the perfect supporting actor to boast Jet Li’s career into a list status.
Once Upon a Time in China 2 is a 1992 Hong Kong martial arts film written and directed by Tsui Hark, and starring Jet Li returning as Chinese folk hero Wong Fei-hung.It is the second film and first sequel in the Once Upon a Time in China film series.
This movie is special for me due the combo act of two action heroes Donnie Yen and Jet Li.
Seven Swords is an amazing production with a really great story line and cast. Donnie Yen is brightest actor, to obtain such a easy movie unlike a few of his other films.
Admittedly if you want to see a Donnie Yen showcase, you might want to look elsewhere.
The film uses his acting chops with less emphasis on fights. Even though a lot of the fight scenes seem to fall short until the end of the film, the ending battle is truly awesome.I have shared a video,you can experience the thrill.
Legend of the Fist: The Return of Chen Zhen is a 2010 Hong Kong martial arts film directed and produced by Andrew Lau, and starring Donnie Yen as Chen Zhen, a role made famous by Bruce Lee in the 1972 film Fist of Fury.
The film is a sequel to the 1994 film Fist of Legend, which starred Jet Li as Chen Zhen.
This film is just awesome because of best story line and genius Acting style.
Donnie yen's act in this film proved it's potential in all respect.
