NOt sure if I like it or not. It's extremely OTT but fun in a sort of strange way. It's gory but comically so. I guess it's like Marmite.

A tribute to the old school Shaw Bros and Golden harvest kung fu films of the 60s and 70s, worth a look if you enjoy the old, OTT martial arts movies, if not then you may not enjoy it.

Quentin Tarantino's recent work is marked,among other disconcerting characteristics, by a profound contempt for historical reality.
This one is the first movie directed (....I use the term very loosely..)by Q.T.'s close fiend,the famous rapper RZA ! It was ,apparently made possible, by through the direct involvement of Q.T.in production and casting.
I shall not comment on the movie itself.It is not worth of comments.But it is sad to see Russel Crowe,overweight to the point that he can hardly move, posing himself as a murderous "knife master"(!),who is also an english colonel acting as an an emissry of the Chinese emperor !! A pitiful presence, aiming to commercial benefits alone.Luy Liu ,on the other hand,who is cast as a "madam" of a "House of pleasure",is the only "acceptable"(in terms of acting)character in this "bloodbath" poor excuse of a movie.
Q.T. has ,apparently,not only "distanced"himself from reality,but is using his "Hollywood clout" to promote any absurd project based on his personal connections and preferences alone.With the aforementined terrible results.
It is a sad fact,yet a fact.A pity.

An extremely silly, very over the top and very violent action film, The Man With The Iron Fists is a glorious tribute to kung fu movies. Rza making his debut in front of and behind the camera as star and director is a blacksmith in 19th century China forced to make weapons for the various gangs that rule his village who get visited by several mercanaries including Russell Crowe looking for a mysterious treasure. Lucy Liu also appears as the owner of a local brothel. A lot of fun to watch with terrific action scenes and a surprisingly decent performance by Rza and a surprisingly decent directorial debut as well while Russell Crowe steals the film as mercenary Jack Knife. Quite how they persuaded him to appear in this i will never know but he looks like he is enjoying himself enormously in this film. Wrestler David Bautista also has one hell of a screen prescence as a bad guy while Lucy Liu is very good as the brothel owner. Don't take any of this film which is basically an exploitation film seriously and you should have a lot of fun with it. I personally loved every single silly second.

This was bought as a little add on to an order, didn't know anything about it, but we really enjoyed watching it.

Tipical movie with chinese people (and Russell Crowe) fighting with impossible movements and impossible weapons. It's like Dragon Ball comic with real actors. I'd like it.
