It was'nt one of Tarantino's better movies, in my opinion. An O.K. story with lots of martial arts fighting and a certain look (China 1800's ) that made it worth while. Russel Crowe and Lucy Liu were good and Byron Mann( I've never heard of him before) was good too. I give it a Go.

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.

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?

Terrible, completely predictable, and just plain dumb. What's with Quentin Tarantino? His movies are either really great or really suck and you never know which your going to get until you see it.

The movie had an alright story line. The fight scenes were not all that good as I expected. Action sequences are pretty much nothing anyone has ever seen before. All of them seemed quite similar if not, identical to Kill Bill. I judge movies by what I've never seen before. Some parts of the movie were just too confusing and I could not figure out why or how it got to that part but, whatever. I am a lover of kung fu and a practitioner as well and I think that there could have been much more to this than what it is now. Overall, I do not consider this to be a flop at all, after all, this is much better than what I can say about the other rapper's films that do not even come close to this movie. This is a better quality than I could ever say about Master P's sucky ***films that were low budget like a mutha f***a. Creative and imaginative. Please don't make the next movie to be like Kill Bill. Be different than what everyone else has out there.
