You can call me Jack....,
This review is from: The Man with the Iron Fists [Blu-ray]  (Blu-ray)
There is a saying that too many cooks spoil the broth. Here is a prime example.
Even though there are only two cooks, RZA and Roth, the latter has had his day, and really needs to make that Thanksgiving movie, and as for RZA, it's just a really silly vanity project for him.
He's the titular character, but with no panache, or acting abilities other than 'look depressed' it's extremely difficult to connect with him.
Maybe it was me being extremely bored, but the film was really difficult to understand, and the narrative was really dumb. we get introduced to so many characters, it's easy to lose whatever plot the film is.
And then Russell Crowe comes along.
I don't know why, but he was fun, and very good, but he was phoning it in and looked very portly, kilos away from his Robin Hood.
The fight scenes are not very good, music is inconsistent and not suitable for this kind of movie, and it cannot decide what it wants to be, Western, Exploitation, Blaxploitation, Grindhouse, or seventies martial arts movie.
It fails on all levels, and is probably the worst mainstream release i've seen.

I've just reviewed this and I'd forgotten how badly the music was chosen and used. I found it hard to articulate how terrible it is.
