Why RZA?! Why did you murder Kung Fu?!

There are three reasons why this movie sucks 1. RZA can't act I am a huge fan of RZA and the Wu Tang Clan. I loved him in Californiacation. However, in Californiacation he played a role that was similar to his persona. However, The Man with Iron Fists, he plays a completely new role. I am unsure what his role was. He was at times (I am guessing) a hard tough guy, but at times a weak and helpless man. I felt like I was watching a kid in a high school play looking over his shoulders at his high school teacher to see what his next line was. RZA should be RZA, nobody else because he cannot act like anyone else. 2. Horrible Script and Director RZA helped in writing this script and directed this movie. How he managed to make an A-List cast look like co-high school students in a high school play, beats me. But HE DID THAT! At time'sI squirmed because it was uncomfortable watching them. 3. The Movie is Unentertaining This was the first time I watched a kung fu movie and wished I didn't.

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.

Rza should stay behind the scenes. He's acting didn't even seem like an act. More like glorify me cause i made this movie, so i'm going to be in it straight face and all. Rza was emotionless. He was the man character but i didn't get that. I fell asleep at the beginning. I give Rza a A+ for making this movie happen. I just think the storyline wasn't strong enough. Rza always look like he was pouting. Rza was Nothing dramatical about any losts. It was kind of like he was too cool to act in front of the camera or too gangsta to be acting. Movie would've been a hell of a lot better with someone besides Rza acting. So when you see Rza you just think about him as a music producer and rapper not as an actor. The hip hop music was cool but it didn't fit the movie. They were in Asia somewhere. Movie should've aired on MTV. He would've had better success with it. I bought tickets to support Rza and his attempt to do something big.

RZA makes his directorial debut with this violent over-the-top chopsocky homage and proves his beat-downs are just as mind-blowing as his beats. If this has already come and gone to your local multiplex, and you can't hold out for the rental, break out Mortal Kombat and re-Enter the 36 Chambers.

Rocking Kung Fu style

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?
