Editorial Reviews

It's no exaggeration to say that martial arts movies have informed The RZA's entire professional career, with his work with The Wu-Tang Clan, his solo projects, and his soundtracks for folks like Jim Jarmusch and Quentin Tarantino all displaying a pure and abiding love for the genre. (His commentary track on the DVD of the classic 36th Chamber of Shaolin is a profoundly geeky thing of beauty.) The Man with the Iron Fists, in which RZA directs, writes, does the music, and stars as the title character, is unquestionably a vanity project of the first degree--the sort of thing that occasionally feels like watching someone else's home movie, albeit one that can afford to bring in Russell Crowe. Here, however, the filmmaker's passion for the source material is intense enough that it transcends a mere ego trip to become something like the chopsocky equivalent of Buster Keaton's Sherlock Jr.: the work of a man so besmitten by the genre that he'd go to any length to get inside the screen. Trimmed down from an initial four-hour cut, the story (cowritten by Eli Roth) follows a humble blacksmith tasked with making weapons for a number of warring animal-themed clans, including Lions, Jackals, Wolves, and, as seen for a few delirious moments, Birds. After suffering a grievous insult to his person, the blacksmith teams up with a drunken cowboy (Crowe, channeling Oliver Reed) and a shady brothel owner (Lucy Liu) to set things right. Everything that can possibly get chopped in half, does. Movies designed to be The Coolest Thing Ever often have pacing problems, and the momentum here does flag a bit in the second act, particularly during a lengthy flashback that feels like an untethered remnant from the original cut. (Pam Grier and martial arts legend Gordon Liu do make appearances, so it's not a total loss.) Things rebound in a big way for the finale, however, as each good guy gets the opportunity to have a lavish solo battle with a hissable villain, with choreography provided by the legendary Corey Yuen. As is his right, the star gives himself the best fight scene, throwing down with David Bautista, a gargantua of a man who appears to have swallowed a coat hanger immediately before filming. Viewers unfamiliar with the genre may find themselves scratching their heads, but for those in the know, RZA's palpable glee at re-creating the spot-on shaky zooms and exaggerated death rattles from the classics makes The Man with the Iron Fists almost as much fun to watch as it must have been to make. If you had a chance to make a movie where you got to punch people through walls, you'd do it too. --Andrew Wright

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun, Tarantino-esque movie, but overextends itself December 3, 2012
Format:Blu-ray
The Man With the Iron Fists is a movie that was 'presented' (not produced) by Quentin Tarantino and directed by RZA. It centers on the story of a black blacksmith in China, who is trying to leave his hostile home village that's entrenched in between good ol' clan wars.

If you are seeking to be entertained, look no further. RZA blends the 'hip-hop samurai' type of music and feel -- prevalent in a lot of anime in recent years -- with the Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon-floating-around-style of fighting to create a high-flying (no pun intended) and adventurous parody of the genres with a Spaguetti Western flare. Needless to say, visually this movie is great in many respects.

However, beyond that, the movie suffers from more than a few noticeable stumbling points. The first being dialogue. Not only is the writing over-simplified, but the fact that some of the Chinese characters have Oriental-English accents while others speak perfectly clear English is something that will distract some viewers from the already simple plot. In addition, the main antagonist Silver Lion is portrayed as the funny one-liner villain, but there are times when his role feels overdone and out of place during the more serious scenes. Perhaps this harkens back to the older Kung-fu movie time other reviewers mentioned, but for me it was distracting.

Another caveat is the characters. They didn't feel very memorable, which is again probably due to the dialogue. The exception here is Russel Crowe's character, who exhibits wit, style, and the fact he sticks out like a sore thumb in a charming way. While I feel he did an extraordinary job in executing this role, I'm not exactly sure how his career will be affected in the long-run from this... You'll know what I mean.

5.0 out of 5 stars if you love 70's kung fu movies... November 15, 2012
By null
Format:DVD
fantastic movie! i saw a lot of very unique and fun kung fu ideas that could only come from a true movie fan such as the rza! there is a brass statue of a man that is in many movies as a training dummy for qi (chi) blocking attacks. in this movie there is the statue and a man with skin that can become brass at will, it links up toward the end in such a cool way i was blown away. i imagine the rza back in the 70's thinking "what if someone had to fight the qi training statue? then they would be really f*&%ed!"

i could see where he deliberately paid homage to old kung fu films with some of the camera work, hair and acting styles, this kind of thing might look odd too someone who hasn't seen older kung fu movies as some of it seems corny or stilted (which is how those old movies are, something fans love!). but even so, they would get over it every time one of the AMAZING battles started.

at first the rap music came off as out of place. this is coming from a wu tang clan fan since the 36 chambers, and digital bullet is one of my favorite albums, but they're in ancient china and it's all hip hop style which doesn't really match up, but it grew on me very fast and by the end i was bobbing my head to the beats and enjoying them with the fight scenes. i grew up listening to wu tang, and rza always puts cuts from classic kung fu movies in his music. it's really cool hearing them and then, years later, stumbling over the same lines or music while watching the movie they're from without knowing it ahead of time. it's like: "why do i recognize this? i've never seen this movie... oh yeah! wu tang!" this was the exact opposite of that and it worked pretty well! i'm watching a kung fu movie and thinking "wait a minute, i know that song!"

and the story? phenomenal!

1.0 out of 5 stars Horrible in every sense March 16, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
If you have not seen this film, don't EVER watch this film! This is a complete and utter waste of time. With the expection of perhaps two or three of the main actors giving their all to roles they certainly knew were bad, there is really nothing I can say nice about this movie.

1. The story is aweful, that's putting it nicely because I could rant for an hour on how bad the story is alone.
2. The acting is just as bad. The only saving grace is watching Byron Mann (Ryu from the first Street Fighter movie) play a ridiculous character. To be fair, Russell Crowe and Rick Yune seemed to do their best at trying to save bad roles.
3. The music selection is distracting. Choosing to play nearly incoherent rap over unexplained scenes that supposedly impact the story line does nothing but distract from whats going on. In fact, there are entire sections of the film I can barely remember simply due to how disconnected the music was.
4. RZA, and everything about him. I may be unfairly bashing RZA (the actor for the main role and director responsible for this travesty), but every part of his involvement in the movie is most notably horrible. He can't act, period. When he is attempting to deliver dialouge he can barely be understood. The costume wardrobe he has for most of the film would be laughable if it actually felt like it was intended to be a joke (he spends about half the film walking around a beat up Chinese village dressed like Ezio from the Assassin's Creed games). His atempts at fighting are pathetic, like watching kids with a camera play power rangers. All the decisions for the film were his responsibility as the director and therefore I can aim all my disappointment squarely at him.
5. All the combat scenes are bad.
