Summary: As a martial arts fan I find it easy to like anything with good martial arts
in it. The story is interesting enough but not great. The characters are
interesting too. The martial arts were pretty cool, but left me unsatisfied, as
you only get to see each character fight only once or twice. This could have
Conclusion: Great movie, very entertaining from the stylish and bloody open sequence to the bloody finale, great story jam packed with classic martial arts scenes and styles from different types of movies from over the years, the cast was great, RZA does an awesome job at directing and starring as the man with the iron fists, Russell Crow was a big surprise he is very good, Lucy Liu is great to watch as always, and the rest of the cast was great too, its jam packed with gory fights...
Being a fan of kung fu b-movies i wouldn't recommend it!

Conclusion: I'm a fan of old kung-fu movies, 70's exploitation and grindhouse, but this was terrible. Even worse than a large number of b-movies from the same genre this is pretty poor, and to be honest i blame it on the self-indulgent RZA, who i believe starred, wrote, produced and 'composed' songs for the film. It felt like it was written by amateur's and some the acting was so bad it wasn't even laughable.
Conclusion: Ignore other review..i to love kung fu and old svhool movies and this is really good fun..it aint kill bill but its the next thing..great proformances by all espically russel crowe..transfer is excellent and so to is the movie.
Conclusion: dont be fooled like me..when i first saw the trailer for this i thought yea this looks good a new movie made to look like an old school kung fu movie..shore i knew with tarantino on board this would be something a little different..but i wasnt prepared for a bunch of actors that have all been waisted and looked like they really didnt want to be there as the acting was very bland.
Summary: Barske actionscener, ok underholdning. Kunne ha blitt veldig bra, hadde det ikke vært for den dårlige, overfladiske og lite innlevende skuespillerprestasjonen fra de flere store skuespillere. kommer kanskje av dårlig regissør?
