Wu-Tang staple and wuxia film affecionado RZA delivers probably one of the most over the top and fun films I have seen this year. The Man With The Iron Fists gives the moviegoers who are unfamiliar with the classic kung-fu films of the 60s and 70s an action packed look at the world the iconic studio portrayed in their golden days. This is a passion project to its core. RZA puts great effort in paying homage to the films that greatly influenced Wu-Tang's sound and culture. Everyone involved in this film were clearly having fun with their respective roles, especially Russell Crowe as Jack Knife and Byron Mann as the traitorous Silver Lion. The cast boasts some very notable wuxia actors, including the legendary Gordon Liu as the Abbott. Another notable aspect of this film is the soundtrack. The music ranged from the traditional 70s music, with slick guitar riffs and orchestral flares to hip-hop. I definitely recommend this to anyone who loves wuxia films or films in general.

SKIP IT! -__-'

The movie was not great. I am a person who loves Asian movies and action packed. In the movie, there was elements that were used from the old Chinese movies, but what made it quite confusing was the title that didn't even follow with the man with the iron fists. The only thing the guy did was narrate the movie. Also, the music selection was horrible because it was like a remix of Hip-Hop, Chinese movies, and old Western. The merge of both elements made me lose interest in every aspect possible. From the preview, this movie looks to be promising, but in truth, it was a complete waste of time. At some point, I wanted to just close my eyes and fall asleep because there was too much misdirected scenes. Personally, I am very disappointed. If in comparison, I had more fun and excitement watching the Disney movie that just came out than The Man with the Iron Fists. Anyways, watch it if you don't believe me and good luck!

For old school martial arts movie fans

This is an old school movie with new F/X. The story is simple, plot to steal gold, betray the clan leader so the young guys can have it all. Son comes to get revenge, assassins attack him. Good guys, bad guys, good girls, bad girls. It all revolves around the local brothel. The fighting was good, the acting okay. The music wasn't to my liking but it is the mainstream rap-pop of the 2012 crowd. Its not for young kids, simply because of the brothel location and implied sexual connotations. This is geared for those that liked the old kung-fu style movies. I liked it, and it was worth the ticket price.

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.
