Movie fanboys are dying to see RZA’s “The Man with the Iron Fists”, but whether Joe Blow Moviegoer is also interested is entirely open to debate. The film looks like such a curious piece of moviemaking, I can’t tell if this thing is going to kill at the box office or sink like, well, Dave Bautista’s character Brass Body. We shall find out when the film opens next month. Until then, get a look at three fighting clips from “The Man with the Iron Fists”. I get the feeling all this fighting is a very good indication of what to expect from the movie. Lots and lots of fighting, is what I’m trying to say.
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.
Also starring Russell Crowe, Lucy Liu, Jamie Chung, Pam Grier, Dave Bautista, Cung Le, Osric Chau, Daniel Wu, Chia Hui Liu, Rick Yune, Zhu Zhu, Byron Mann, and smashing home November 2, 2012.
