A waste of an otherwise perfect evening

Dont't waste your money or time to see the socalled borderline movie. Plot is old and at times even makes no sense whatsoever. The characters are predictable and the dialoge is corny. Way too much blood and incredible master arts impossible to create in the real world.

If you like Tarantino stylized movies, this is a good one. Anybody who calls themselves RZA ( Born Robert Diggs a.k.a. Prince Rakeem, Bobby Steels, The Rzarector, and The Abbott) is a very special kind of guy, but his movie is remarkably entertaining, and he did everything - wrote it, directed it, stars in it, and probably cleaned up after everybody went home. It's fun.

RZA looked bored the entire time and it just did not reach the levels of camp to make it funny enough. Russel Crowe was the only good part of the movie.

This movie sets out to accomplish a vision and succeeds

These days, action movies of all types strive to have as much realism and logic as possible. The RZA, the star and director of this film, combines fantasy, philosophy, imagination, and incredible action choreography in this movie. What a lot of reviewers are missing is that the plot isn't supposed to be some complex story, this is a film that pays homage to the old martial arts/kung-fu movies that had very little story line but made sure the action sequences and creativity were alive. RZA's storyline for this makes enough sense for the movie to work and for the audience to appreciate the action sequences. The acting is great by all of the actors/actresses for what the movie is. I personally think that RZA, Russell Crowe, and Lucy Lui brought their A-game. RZA also injects modern aspects into the movie like the soundtrack, certain weaponry, and a couple other things. It doesn't diminish the movie though. I predict this will be a cult classic someday. Not a kids movie but a great film.

it was okay. the script was elementary. to much sex and blood. really did not capture all the essence of the old kung fu movies. kind of added twist of comic book style. to many scenes that really did not capture the martial art movements you could not really see the moves. i would wait for the dvd. i started yawning half way into the movie and some people left out of the theater. It was an okay movie could have been better. I give mad props to Rza though. Practice makes perfect.
