中文摘要 東方武術元素融合於西方的好萊塢電影中的趨勢已行之有年。從李小龍1973《龍爭虎鬥》成功打入西方影壇大門,成龍也積極欲跟進闖進好萊塢,不過卻花了近20年,才以警察雙搭檔動作喜劇型態的《尖峰時刻》獲得西方觀眾青睞。而1999年《駭客任務》使香港武俠片中超越常人之不可能的武術動作,在科幻片中化為可能並獲得好評,開啟了西方電影融合東方武術之美新紀元。學者盧非易指出有關李安《臥虎藏龍》獲得第七十三屆奧斯卡金像獎最佳外語片獎之成功,應該跟好萊塢逐漸引進東方武術元素的趨勢已在西方普及有關。而2002年張藝謀的《英雄》則使用好萊塢式的電影特效來呈現傳統的刺客故事與俠義精神,分別在北美和中國票房有閃亮的成績。

英文摘要 The trend of Asian martial arts in Hollywood has a long history. The first Asian actor, who was accepted by a western audience, was Bruce Lee Enter the Dragon (1973). Since then, Jackie Chan has also been trying to enter Hollywood. Finally, more than 20 years later he succeeded in it in his buddy cop genre movie Rush Hour (1998). Furthermore, after the hit of the Matrix (1999), that introduced the beauty of Hong Kong kung fu style action movies. Hong Kong kung fu style was accepted by the global audience. This is an important bridge that made a kung fu acceptable and interesting to western movie lovers and makers. Critics believe that due to the risen interest towards the martial arts thanks to the huge success of The Matrix (1999) next year Ang Lee won the 73rd Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film with his Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon. In 2002, Zhang Yimou also used the Hollywood visual effect technology to present the global audience his traditional wuxia movie Hero (2002) and broke the box office records in China and North America.
This paper examines the trend of Hollywood industry cooperation with Asian martial art genre films and takes the four significant movies such as Enter the Dragon (Warner Bros.), Rush Hour (New Line Cinema), Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon (Sony Pictures Classics), and Hero (Miramax) to express the flow of Asian martial art movies go to the global scene, globalization of cross-cultural media issues, globalization of the local in each of the taken co-production movies, and the importance of Asian market.
The conclusion of this research shows that Chinese Martial Arts action genre is accepted by global audience. With successful box office, from Bruce Lee’s kung fu impression to Jackie Chan’s kung fu comedy; From Ang Lee’ Oscar to Yimou Zhang’ market success in China. This thesis concludes the historical significance of local Chinese kung fu films with East and West market considerations in their recent box office success in global film industry.
Co-production makes the partner’s market accessible. To narrow down Co-production issues, this thesis will focus on co-produced Kung fu movies. Not only Asians try to enter Hollywood, Hollywood also wants to enter Asian market.
