The Man with the Iron Fists (Blu-ray)

DVD Verdict
14 March 2013
  • Excerpt: The best thing The Man with the Iron Fists has going for it is enthusiasm. It's clear that writer/director/composer/star RZA is in love with the kung fu genre, and his passion is evident in every frame of his directorial debut. He seems to take a great deal of inspiration from Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill , aiming to offer a genre-hopping flick that celebrates kung fu movies while also transcending most of them.

  • Conclusion: Making his big-screen debut as writer and director, RZA displays his complete love and adoration of Chinese martial-arts cinema with 'The Man with the Iron Fists.' Essentially a wet-dream of the wuxia genre, your level of enjoyment pretty much amounts to your familiarity with those classic kung fu movies, which is both the movie's strength and weakness, but ultimately not half bad for a first go-around.

Insert random hip hop expletives as you see fit: Dear Santa, this is The RZA and I've been a very, very good boy this year. All I want for Christmas is my first-ever movie! I want to write it, direct it, star in it and handle the soundtrack, and I want to fight a metal man. Oh! And I want Quentin Tarantino to present it and put his name on the poster.

  • Excerpt: The unions of hip-hop and film have often been shotgun marriages dictated more by commerce and convenience than any overarching artistic chemistry. But not in RZA ’s case. From the first track of Wu-Tang Clan ’s seminal 1993 album debut, the frontman/producer/mastermind has had his mind on the big screen. He’s learned the film trade in steps, first as a composer for cult films like Kill Bill: Vol.
