    Never Back Down gets points because it recaptured the feeling of the old 80's MA films.

    WMA, Princess Bride. :D

    To me Seagal's first movie, "Above the Law" or "Nico," depending on where you live, has the most recognizable aikido.

    I thought the Bourne films were largely escrima?

    I don't know where to stick that MA-wise but it's a pretty awesome movie:

    The Bourne films were choreographed by Jeff Imada, who has an extensive background in both FMA and JKD, courtesy of Guro Dan Inosanto. So you could make the case either way really.

    Rocky- boxing

    Only the strong- jungle karate

    Borne- karate

    Anything by Bruce lee- karate
