    There are other notables such as Kickboxer and Best of the Best.

    Bloodsport is the greatest movie ever made, period. (Aside from MacGruber)

    Is boxing not a martial art?

    Gymkhana is better than both but of the two choices Bloodsport is better overall.

    Enter the Dragon, no contest.

    It's got Bruce Lee, and hardly any stupid drama. A bunch of memorable characters, without a need for a bimbo.

    Plus, no JCVD.

    Bruce Lee laughs at Tong Po

    Love Bloodsport

    The best part was the early stages of the tourney... It was fun seeing how the movie makers created the different fighters/styles. It was almost like a Street Fighter game, before there was an actual Street Fighter.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the makers of Street Fighter 2 took inspiration from Bloodsport in making the game. Thought I'm probably getting my time frame wrong here..

    Over-all, Bloodsport is just an incredibly fun movie. Which is what a Martial Arts movie needs to be

    Yup. As bad as it is in terms of acting and writing, it did give martial arts fans everything they wanted in a karate movie.

    I would have to agree it's the goat. I watch it every time I catch it on tv
