RZA makes his directorial debut with this violent over-the-top chopsocky homage and proves his beat-downs are just as mind-blowing as his beats. If this has already come and gone to your local multiplex, and you can't hold out for the rental, break out Mortal Kombat and re-Enter the 36 Chambers.

kitsch but not so kung fu

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.

If you are a fan of this kind of movie it is good.. you have to like the genre of film.. lots of violence and blood and guts.. typica of this kind of film.. but it had a good story line and the actors where good...

Amateurish, Tarantino-Wannabe

Ugh. Ok, the opening credits were pretty cool and the accompanying tune by RZA was AWESOME, took me back to my days listening to Wu-Tang. But everything after that was downhill... I respect RZA and Eli Roth independently of this mishmash of crap, but I ended up walking out of this movie after the first hour. I couldn't bear to watch anymore. The direction was weak and obvious, the production quality was pretty low to awful. The acting was ok, but not great. The action sequences were more McG: Charlie's Angels than Crouching Tiger, not cool and not well choreographed. If you're in your early teens and haven't seen a lot of decent action / pulp fiction cinema then go right ahead. If you have managed to get through puberty then you might want to save yourself the torture of watching this should've-been-straight-to-DVD pile of crap. Lame!!

Fun but flawed

Entertaining but flawed homage to 1970's martial arts flicks. The movie was apparently edited down from a much longer cut and feels like it--the pacing is too frenetic and the opening scenes include way too much exposition, which make them needlessly confusing. Also, RZA can't act and leaves a huge whole at the center of the film since he gave himself the title part. But the rest of the actors are good and this has some fun action and enjoyably hammy performances. Worth a look but only at the bargain show.
