Man with a crappy movie and terrible actung

I watched the first 30 minutes then I passed out. It has crappy over dramatic since as my bf who stayed awake describes and some horrible acting. I'm not sure of the year it's based in but the music was all rap in today's era which bothered me for some reason. I like rap music, however it didn't fit. If it was supposed to be more of a comedy spoof I didn't catch on. So if you want to see it wait for it to come to dvd, then decide.

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.

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.

Thank God For Russell Crowe

Kind of painful to watch at times, not for the action but the terrible dialog and acting. Half of those guys looked like Marty Stewart on crack. Not really even a good rental. Save your money and time wasted watching this screwed up mess. How Russell Crowe can go from "Beautiful Mind" "Gladiator" "310 to Yuma" ETC to this total mess is beyond me? I guess a payday?? Skip it....

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.
