    Rza the Grand Master

    |
    Posted .

    Man With the Iron Fists explodes with style, personality and visual splendor. This may not feature the strongest execution of action sequences (see John Hyam's Universal Soldier: Regeneration and Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning, Raid 2, and The Girl from the Naked Eye for that) but the action is solid, the Cory Yuen choreography is tight as ever but Rza isn't focusing on the "flow" of the action but the "explosions". Huge action beats within these sequences take center stage and the editing heightens the impact. The real reason to see Iron Fists is for how visually striking the movie is and the unique "voice" Rza gives the picture with melding myth (the world building is layered and fun, such as giving each character a unique weapon), modern music (The Black Keys and Rza's "The Baddest Man Alive" is the highlight), and interesting characters (Particularly Crowe's Jack Knife and Yune's X Blade). I wouldn't necessarily recommend this to a martial arts fan, none the less, Iron Fists is a fun, fresh and visually striking movie.

    I read a review of this before watching it that only gave it around 5 stars out of 10. The critic complained that the plot development was too diluted because there was too much going on in this 2 hour, action-packed, stylistic, cinematic homage to Kung-fu movies from the 1970's. I agree that the story was highly busy but...given all the pro's mentioned above...any fan of old Kung-fu films would enjoy this movie and I would highly anticipate sequels to this film where the story lines and character developments are more focused.

    Pretty cool movie

    Posted .

    Making his debut as a big-screen director and leading man, RZA-alongside a stellar international cast led by Russell Crowe and Lucy Liu-tells the epic story of warriors, assassins and a lone outsider hero in nineteenth-century China who must unite to destroy the clan traitor who would destroy them all. Since his arrival in China's Jungle Village, the town's blacksmith (RZA) has been forced by radical tribal factions to create elaborate tools of destruction. When the clans' brewing war boils over, the stranger channels an ancient energy to transform himself into a human weapon. As he fights alongside iconic heroes and against soulless villains, one man must harness this power to become savior of his adopted people.

    Good debut

    Posted .

    RZA set out on his directorial debut for what else, a Kung-Fu flick. I didn't have high hopes when I 1st heard what he was trying to do. I figured if anything the soundtrack will be great. Thank to help and backing of tarantino, rza had a good enough budget to make a good enough kung-fu flick. The story tends to drag on for the most part and some of it is even like HUH. Overall it works and I enjoyed it enough to add to the collection. Audio and Video on this bluray are excellent. Like most recent movies over the yrs from Asia, the colors are vibrant and are basically part of the story. The sound has clear dialogue and immersive action will keep you speakers and ears happy.

    The RZA's Kung-Fu Epic - Nuff Said.

    |
    Posted .

    For a first time director, The RZA did a pretty good - but not perfect - job in his ode to kung-fu films of yesteryear. While he's not the most charismatic leading man, The Man with the Iron Fists more than makes up for it with a colorful supporting cast willing to go all out. Could the fights be a little better? Probably. Could it be a little leaner? Maybe. But get some friends over, open a few beers, and enjoy a movie that wants nothing more than to give you a little kung fury.

    Dumb fun

    |
    Posted .

    Simply put this movie is just dumb fun. If you go into this movie not expecting great story or great acting and just looking for action, this is the movie for you. It isn't meant to be taken seriously and is over the top. That is what makes the movie so enjoyable. It's like watching a live action anime. This movie is so good it has me looking forward to watching the sequel.

    Action film with Q Tarrentino flair.

    |
    Posted .

    Interesting East-Meets-West film,but somewhat confusing with the number of ethnic groups used (black, several caucasian, many non-Chinese Asian actors) and stereotyping on kung-fu styles. Amusing film, but it left me wanting a more realistic treatment. However, in the tradition of old-style kung-fu films suspension of belief is needed on a semi-regular basis.

    Fun Action Flick

    Posted .

    This movie is a fun action adventure that is influenced by classic kung fu movies. It stars Russell Crowe, Lucy Lui, and Wu-Tang Clan rapper RZA. I enjoyed the movie, I thought it was a fun action movie. This copy also comes with a digital copy for both ultraviolet and iTunes.

    A moder day Kung fu movie with a western flair starring Russell Crowe, Lucy Lu and RZA with that Tarrantino influence, need I say more! Action packed, good adult violence and gore...lol. It will definately keep you entertained! The only negative I can give is that I think $24.99 for any movie is a bit much.

    You definitely get the feeling that this is a Tarantino film early on. If you can appreciate his style of storytelling, try his modern take to Kung Fu movies. It has a kind of weird supernatural feel, some sweet fighting scenes, and incredible characters.

    A Modern Throwback

    Posted .

    This film does a great job of capturing the feel of old Kung Fu movies from the 60's and 70's. The action is completely over the top just like it's supposed to be in this genre. I found the movie to be a blast.

    Awesome movie, just like most of Quintin's movies very unique with a retro king fu movie style, but with a different adaptation of the genre. Story was on point and I would definitely recommend this movie.

    I purchased this movie because it was on sale and I was pleasantly surprised with it. It has a good pace throughout the movie. Many fight scenes with some storyline mixed in between.

    Don't be misled

    RZA or whoever he was had his pal Q Tarantino add his name on the package just to sell more of them to suckers like myself. The movie was worth the $4 I paid for it, though $3 would have been more fair. It was quite violent but if I had known Q Tarantino only had his name on the package out of friendship, I would have passed on it.

    This Movie Really Gave Me A Rush. Kung Fu At It's Finest. Glad To See Rza Have An Input And Pay Homage To Old Kung Fu Flicks. Move Was Awesome. Can't Wait To See The Sequel.

    Great movie for a Saturday afternoon, good action sequences with stop action video and good special effects. I wish it were a little longer to allow for more character development. But all in all a good movie.

    Bought this on a lark and found that I really ended up liking it. Its no "Kill Bill" but it has just an much action and a pretty good story to go along with it. If you like Tarantino, you'll like this movie.

    Very violent Kung fu

    |
    Posted .

    The man with the iron fists is a movie directed by the rapper RZA, it's a marital arts type of movie, just with a lot more blood, it's a super violent movie. If you go in with very low expectations and know not to take anything of it seriously, you'll have fun. But if you want something serious avoid it.
