I really thought this was going to be a great Kung Fu flick, but........

Going into this movie I had high expectation, so I probably set myself up for a big let down. The story has a simple enough premise, but when you watch it unfold you find yourself wondering what the hell is going on. Even though the action is there it doesn't come across as exciting, as most scenes leave you bored and looking at your watch. The one saving grace of this movie is Russell Crowe, who gives a great performance and his presence onscreen makes every other cast member look like amateurs. The ending has it's fair share of action but again lacks substance and seems to end right after the big fight scene. I'm sure teenagers and early 20-something year olds will enjoy this one more than anyone over the age of 30. RZA gives it his all but should stick with what he still excels at, which is present in the end as the credits roll and his new track plays.

I really liked this movie considering there was so much blood....Grandma's are really not into bloody action movies...but, I liked how all the characters were very interesting and well played. I was truely amazed at this movie. I would go see it again.

kitsch but not so kung fu

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.

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.
