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.

I'm not sure if I just missed a prequel, but there were just some unanswered questions about the characters (and their physiology) where the details were just glossed over or the dialogue was just not loud enough for me to understand. I'd have loved for them to take an extra minute out of the bloodshed to help me understand how the characters got to where they are.
The action sequences were great, and thankfully enough humor was added where I wasn't overwhelmed or grossed out (this is not my favorite genre). Overall, I had a good night out with my husband watching this movie, but I don't think its one that I'd care to re-watch or take home.

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.

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?
