Terrible, completely predictable, and just plain dumb. What's with Quentin Tarantino? His movies are either really great or really suck and you never know which your going to get until you see it.

Kind of painful to watch at times, not for the action but the terrible dialog and acting. Half of those guys looked like Marty Stewart on crack. Not really even a good rental. Save your money and time wasted watching this screwed up mess.
How Russell Crowe can go from "Beautiful Mind" "Gladiator" "310 to Yuma" ETC to this total mess is beyond me? I guess a payday??

I'm not sure if I just missed a prequel, but there were just some unanswered questions about the characters (and their physiology) where the details were just glossed over or the dialogue was just not loud enough for me to understand. I'd have loved for them to take an extra minute out of the bloodshed to help me understand how the characters got to where they are.
The action sequences were great, and thankfully enough humor was added where I wasn't overwhelmed or grossed out (this is not my favorite genre). Overall, I had a good night out with my husband watching this movie, but I don't think its one that I'd care to re-watch or take home.

This was the worst movie I have ever seen. The acting was awful, the story was shallow, and the fighting was ridiculous. Rza should stick with rapping. I thought for a while that it was trying to spoof Kung Fu movies, but if it was it even did that badly. The only redeeming quality of this movie was that it ended.

There are three reasons why this movie sucks
1. RZA can't act
I am a huge fan of RZA and the Wu Tang Clan. I loved him in Californiacation. However, in Californiacation he played a role that was similar to his persona. However, The Man with Iron Fists, he plays a completely new role. I am unsure what his role was. He was at times (I am guessing) a hard tough guy, but at times a weak and helpless man. I felt like I was watching a kid in a high school play looking over his shoulders at his high school teacher to see what his next line was. RZA should be RZA, nobody else because he cannot act like anyone else.
2. Horrible Script and Director
RZA helped in writing this script and directed this movie. How he managed to make an A-List cast look like co-high school students in a high school play, beats me. But HE DID THAT! At time'sI squirmed because it was uncomfortable watching them.
3. The Movie is Unentertaining
This was the first time I watched a kung fu movie and wished I didn't.
