What’s that, RZA? “The Man With the Iron Fists” will do what now? Oh, it’ll fuck me up? That’s good to know.
This is the general premise behind a new, very red band featurette for the Wu Tang Clan mastermind’s directorial debut. An epic, action-packed martial arts flick, no less. Who would’ve thought that?
Here’s a synopsis:
Since his arrival in China’s Jungle Village, the town’s blacksmith (RZA) has been forced by radical tribal factions to create elaborate tools of destruction. When the clans’ brewing war boils over, the stranger channels an ancient energy to transform himself into a human weapon. As he fights alongside iconic heroes and against soulless villains, one man must harness this power to become savior of his adopted people.
The focus of this video is to introduce the various fighters and fighting styles of the characters in “The Man With the Iron Fists”. And in all honesty, this is just an excuse to show a whole lot of blood—including a wolf mauling and a graphic evisceration—and for RZA to say that this actor or that actor “will fuck you up.” If you weren’t already sold on this movie (and if you weren’t we probably can’t be friends anymore) this should do the trick nicely. It made me giggle and clap my hands like a spastic idiot child.
“The Man With the Iron Fists” opens November 2, and stars RZA, Russell Crowe, Lucy Liu, Pam Grier, Cung Le, Jamie Chung, Rick Yune, Daniel Wu, and Dave Bautista.
