    Review: 'The Man With The Iron Fists' A Noble, But Overstuffed First Effort From RZA | The Playlist

    “The Man With The Iron Fists” makes sense as a picture focused on spectacle. The story almost seems secondary to the flights of fancy, most of them occurring in the Zhang Yimou-derived brothel run by Madame Blossom (Lucy Liu). Knives and kicks fly as our title character fades into the background, mostly because of an overstuffed narrative, but also because of RZA’s low-energy performance. His is the tragic storyline, seeing him leading a life caught between warring tribes, desperate for a new beginning with prostitute Lady Silk (Jamie Chung). But for all the film’s efforts to invest you in the story of a noble weapons-maker, you just wish he would have stayed around and kept silently crafting weapons. [B-]

    What'd you expect, Shakespeare. Still a decent review for a first timer. I am so jacked for this movie. This shoulda been a summer release though because I fully expect to od on visuals more than story. Whatever, haven't seen it and this is already on my top 5 list.

    Man with the Iron Fists, The (2012) | Horror Movie, DVD, & Book Reviews, News, Interviews at Dread Central

    As far as directorial debuts go, The Man with the Iron Fists is a rather remarkable achievement by RZA, who demonstrates here his lifelong love affair for the kung fu classics and martial arts movies which has inspired both his music and his now-burgeoning film career.

    And while Iron Fists isn't nearly as flawless as the films that may have served as inspiration for it (Five Deadly Venoms particularly), the flick delivers on so many other levels that makes it easy to overlook the flaws and just enjoy getting caught up in RZA's stunning modern kung fu epic that left this writer both enamored and entertained from start to finish.
    Hopefully I will be seeing this today!!!!
