I would subjest watching "Shadowless Sword" Made in 2005 . I watched this a few weeks ago and it was one of the best movies I have seen in a while. I like to warn you though that it only comes in Korean with English subtitles, but if that does not bother you, give it a try.

Also, Although it was made in 1973, try "Lady Snowblood". I heard it was good, but I haven't seen it yet.

I hope these suggestions help.

Some recommendations from Japan

Swordplay
Azumi (2003) (trailer)
Azumi 2 (2005)
(been ages since I last saw these, though)

Martial Arts
KG: Karate Girl (2011) (trailer)

Mixture (swordplay, gunplay, martial arts)
Hard Revenge Milly: Bloody Battle (2009) (trailer)

Crime / gunplay
Black Angel Vol. 2 (1999) (while not that much of an action film, this is an undiscovered gem of a movie) (trailer)

Action / trash
Revenge of the Zebra Mini-Skirt Police (2010)

Then of course we have tons of 60's, 70's and 80's movies (Sister Street Fighter, Dragon Princess, Sex & Fury, Lady Snowblood, Quick Draw Okatsu, Delinquent Girl Boss etc.) and TV shows (Rebellion League of Girls in Sailor Uniform, Shoujo Commando Izumi etc.)... That was when the most kick ass stuff was being made, but I suppose we're looking for recent films here?
