I would have liked more background

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 movie is like watching a Chinese movie, only that the characters are speaking English and not dubbed. LOL... RZA can't act, but I give him credit for trying.

The Man With the Iron Fists

Funny movie, glad it had a plot you could follow. There was a lot of blood too. It was kind of like a "spoof" movie. Not for young kids.

How high can the blood fly?

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.

Not so good

It's possible I was expecting a Kill Bill, but the truth is that I thought this movie was rather bland. I had fun watching it but there are some major flaws: characters are all under-developed, the plot seems half-baked, and the music selection wasn't appropriate. I get that movie styles are in flux and so things are always changing to match current trends, but rap music as a back-drop to a Chinese Kung-Fu fantasy is overwhelming. There is so much going on visually that you fight to focus over the rap. I never grew to like any of the large of amount of characters. Lucy Liu is great, Bautista is surprisingly in sync and Russell Crowe is great as always. Beyond the beauty of all the scenery and costumes, which are phenomenal, it's difficult to get over the lack of a tangible story. Even the love interests feel hollow and unfinished. Don't go for a compelling, dramatic story. Go for the amazing fight scenes, fun special effects and crazy action. Just don't look under the veneer.
