I have to admit, being a closet fan of old school martial arts movies, that The Man with The Iron Fists stayed true mostly to the genre - albeit with a lot more blood tossed in plus rap music. The music though only did what good movie music does - set a mood. It got a little slow in some parts, but the action and fighting sequences were enough that I really, really enjoyed it. Who the hell knew Russell Crowe could use a knife like that?

Not a great movie to see if you are interested in real kung fu. Fine if you like dismemberment. Rather like the Sicilian puppet stories of Orlando Furiouso, but with hookers.
Pass unless you are in the mood to see something so badly written, with such poor dialogue, that it begins to laughable because of how bad it is.

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??

Wait for cable and only if you've seen everything else on TV...Way to much talking not enough action for a martial arts movie and teh blood looked to fake to believable.

Well, I should have known there will be lots of blood, but boy howdy, was there a lot of blood. It is almost as if the production team was getting a kick out of trying to see how high they can make the red fluid squirt.
Other than that it was a fine movie, great outfits, actors and choreography.
