Kung Fu / Martial Arts / Swordplay Films

These aren't all kung fu movies per se, but films that either feature martial arts combat as a central theme or action films that have a notable amount of martial arts combat in them. I've included Chinese swordplay films and Japanese samurai films as well, since many of the themes and elements are similar.
