I am a big fan of Kung-Fu movies, even the average ones. So, I checked this one out just for the [heck] of it. I was not sure what to expect, so I just watched it with an open mind. As this type of movie goes, it's the same old story. Guy seeks revenge for death of family members. Hey, I am not one to complain. As long as it's fun to watch, and has good fighting in it. I figure, I got my what I wanted. Iron Monkey was just that. Sure it's not the best Kung-Fu film by any means, but it is a fun one.
The Problem: The company who made this DVD desurves to be beaten just like many of the bad guys in Iron Monkey. This is by far, the worst quality DVD I have ever watched. You can tell they just made it from an old VHS tape! To make matters worse, the quality of the tape is just downright sad. The movie is watchable, but thats it. Now I am not sure what the story behind this movie is. Was the original print lost or what? There is a part in the film where the English just stops, and Chinese starts. Then it goes back to english again. I am confused.
In final. Not a bad movie, but it feels like you are watching a bootleg. Don't waste your money.
