It's good if you are into kung fu movies, but this is a very confused movie. It can't decide what it wants to be and honestly RZA's performance made it all the worse. Replace RZA with a chinese actor and make the story ACTUALLY about the man with the iron fists, and it would have been better. Gore and action scenes were good though. Russell Crowe was awesome!

Watching this movie brought me back to the '80s when I watched Kung Fu Theatre on USA. This movie was no block buster but it was a retro homage to those movies that entertained so many. If you enjoy being entertained by classic martial arts films with all of the impossibilities and mysticism that the old world fighting styles bring than this is definitely the movie for you.

RZA did a lovely job for his obviously first foray into film-making. Russell Crowe and Lucy Liu sure seemed like they were having a great time with their parts, and that's always nice to see. The violence was in the spirit of a Frank Miller graphic novel or a Quentin Tarantino exploitation flick - very gory and enjoyable - you'll laugh out loud! Probably wouldn't see again, but it was great for a popcorn flick.

Saturday Kung Fu

This was great! It reminded me of the Saturday Kung fu flicks I watched as a kid. Not a lot of plot but lots of action. The story is decent. But I didn't go for the story. I went for excellent stress release after work Friday. Just what the doctor ordered! Not for kids .....some sex Acting ....just like Saturday morning.

Written by Rza, Directed by Rza and the only movie that would star Rza. Simple, silly, funny with a portly Russell Crowe and Lucy Liu who is the real star. Scenery is awesome, but the 80s Prince-like wigs and costumes make it a comedy. Lots of John Woo kung fu action. Entertaining to say the least and I am glad I went. Wouldn't go see it again, but would catch it as a first run t.v. feature. It is more than mildly entertaining.
