If your a fan of the old kung fu style movies with the cheesy dialect, bad acting and lots of fighting and action then this is the movie for you.
I LOVE the old style movie and thought this movie did a very good job of paying tribute to the old classic's. The acting was not great, but it was not meant to & there were definitely lots of cheesy lines.
Also there were LOTS OF F'ing HOT ASIAN GIRLS, which made it VERY enjoyable.
I think overall RZA did very good job directing his movie.
I would recommend going to see this movie

Rotten Tomatoes only gave this movie a 53 which is sad, because it's clear that the Rza loves kung fu movies. Iron Fists is as good if not better than all the old timey chop socky movies the Shaw Brothers made. I half expected to see the SB logo at the beginning. It's 100% evocative of those films. Gordon Liu even shows up in a cameo.
Movie snobs might have issues with the Rza/Wu Tang music in the film, modern day obscenities, and the actual Iron fists are clearly made of latex with some cgi enhancement--but the fighting is amazing and the acting is great. Like any Street Fighter game there are lots of amazing characters with signature weapons and great kung fu skills. If you've seen Kung Faux on TV and liked it, you will love the Man with the Iron Fists.

My children loved the fight scenes. I did not care for the graphic lyrics in the soundtrack. I always love a move where the good guys win in the end. Brought back 70's karate movie themes and fight scenes. The BROTHER brought it with his iron fists ! We could have waited for it to come on Netflix.

If you love the corny kung-fu movies, then this movie is perfect. I loved absolutely every second of it. If you're looking for a great plot and story, it may not be the best thing for you, as it gets straight into the bad*** fighting. If you're cool with your kids watching blood fly everywhere and can deal with them hearing curse words, it isn't too bad. It had Tarantino-esque filming and action and was everything I was looking for in the movie. RZA did an amazing job and I will look forward to seeing more movies directed by him. All the actors did incredible and I can't wait to see it again when it comes out on DVD.
