2.0 out of 5 stars The second star is for his brave attempt, December 10, 2012
This review is from: The Man with the Iron Fists - Unrated Extended Edition (Blu-ray + DVD + Digital Copy + UltraViolet) (Blu-ray)
"The Man with the Iron Fists" UGH O Lord, where should I begin? Let's start at the beginning, shall we? Two minutes in I was getting annoyed by the uncommitted execution of the opening scene. I won't bother with exposition, because if you've ever seen any of those old Kung-fu films, you've seen this one, only those were better-done. I actually thought I would have enjoyed this, because of Tarentino's affiliation, but, alas, no.

I wish RZA would not have narrated or acted in this. His English pronunciation is poor and his acting skills are non-existent. I prefer to hear "news" be pronounced "nyoos" not "noos". The character names are are a study in cliche: Lady Silk; Silver; Bronze. The action scenes are a less-inspired, poorly-choreographed and executed vision of those from "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon", and the script in its entirety is mutably banal. What are fine actors like Crowe and Liu doing in a thing like this? I don't know.

I believe this is The RZA's first attempt at directing on this scale, and I bow to him for taking on such a painstaking job and bearing his soul to daggers more of which undoubtedly this movie will recieve. He's certainly done a greater job than I could have, but it was difficult to sit through this thing without groaning, sighing, falling asleep, turning it off. -Amuse4god
