    Man w/ the Iron Fists 2 is just as good as the 1st

    It's rare that a sequel to a great movie can come even close to achieving the same level of greatness, but once in a lifetime it happens. "The Man with the Iron Fists"(2) is just as wild & crazy, & Action-packed with tons of blood & adventure just as the first film had. I am impressed! After watching this awesome sequel I am now convinced that the Rza has proven to me that he can Act just as good as any of the best actors out there..even as good as Johny Depp!. I even heard a rumor that for this film the Rza went under the knife and really had his arms amputated for this film so that all of the scenes where he didn't have his Iron fist on would all look as close to real as you can get, he was very adamant that he did not want to use any CGI or any of those fancy Hollywood special effects. So If you look closely at the scenes where he is without the Iron fists you can actually still see the stitches that the surgeons had left in, I mean this guy is a Stud! Anyway, You already know that this movie gets a 4 star rating, 4 stars is the same exact rating I gave the 1st film. I mean who doesn't love that old school Kung-Fu with a touch of Violence & love all with a Hip hop based score.

    With a set up like this, why did I buy this film? I purchased it because I am a fan of Russell's. My only previous viewing of a film like this was Crouching Tiger which was a hit & I liked it 1. IF you hate rap music you will NOT like having to hit the mute button during THE LOAD rap music parts. Terrible 2. Ok, Russell an Oscar winning actor. What was he doing in this mess? A favor to someone? This is beneath him now-needs much better material. It was his first film release in two years & it had to be this mess. 3. Asian actors speaking English to themselves 4. A small spoiler alert-a bad guy wearing SUNGLASSES? Think there were cool in this time frame or something? The story kept jumping around, hard to follow. Let’s get to the the blu ray. Has an extra "A Look Inside" which since the film bombed with critics & at the box office So, the blu ray has this extra, but……. IF you watch it do NOT unless you are a fan of this THREE LETTERS director. It is NOT a making of or anything, it is 3 letters talking about him with BARELY any information on film. Picture quality fine. Unless you like kung fu films you will NOT like this film even if you are a fan of Russell’s or Lucy Liu's. Otherwise, the only names in the cast.

    Rza the Grand Master

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    It was a pretty entertaining watch. It's not a great movie, but it's pretty good. It does pull some influence from old 70s Kung Fu films, and there's definitely Tarrantino influence in this as well. All in all it's good, but I wouldn't hurry out and buy it up right away. Russel Crow was by far my favorite character in the movie. Do definitely check it out if you're into action & kung fu and a little bit of blood & guts, but I'd rent first before buying.

    Movie is incredible, saw it at the movies and i liked it alot. If your a fan of violence and martial arts type stuff then you will be a fan of this film. The Blu-ray disc only is 20 bucks, for 5 more dollars you get the DVD version with it, along with the Ultra violet AND digital copy version. Pretty pricey but well worth it. Another great Quentin tarantino film.
