    Perhaps. I've seen some samurai movies that I like, but westerns usually don't do it for me. My enjoyment of kung fu movies is almost exclusively the spectacle of combat, not really the story (or what passes for one) that holds it all together.

You might think this is a dumb question, but have you seen any of Tony Jaa's films? They have their flaws (sometimes a lot of flaws), but there's no denying the choreography and action in them are downright amazing. Similarly, under the #martialarts tag, I've posted a few technique breakdowns. You might want to check them out, as they're pretty nifty.

Since you're a fan of martial arts films, there is one western I would highly recommend to you, The Good, The Bad, The Weird. It's a Korean western that takes place in China and it's just absolutely fantastic. You can find it on Netflix.
