peeped the movie at midnight showing, pretty good movie all in all

action scenes are all over the beginning and middle of the movie, the ending it kind of lacked aside from the finishing move LOL... dont know if it was the theatre i was in, but it was pretty low in volume...

i can see where eli roth helped out and tarentino, but its just nice to see shaw brother references and style in this day and age...

ARE WE NOT THE STRONGEST?!?!

I don't know if I should see this or not. The trailer doesn't do it for me at all.

Definitely not for the general public. They won't understand the references if either A) Are not fans of Wu B) Don't know about Tarantino's style of movie C) Don't know of the Shaw Brothers influence.

The movie was alright, not too bad (as Im not a fan of Tarantino's style of movie). I feel the action scenes were really good with the different weapons, powers, costumes, choreographs and the awesome characters from each clan. The movie have a classic Kung Fu type of story, very fitting. But it would've more potential if it was more polished and taken more seriously.


BTW... that last blow was exaggerated as fuck, it made me laugh.

yeah the last part was hella funny... but it does fit in to the shaw brothers style of outrageous endings LOL! and the movie was like a combo or 5 deadly venoms and return of the 5 deadly venoms...

I just got back from watching this and i thought is was dope as fuck. They took classic kung fu and polished it up with new age filming. i liked the part when my dude changed his fighting stance and rza pauses and says... Tiger style. u kinda wanna just scream out FUCK YEA! and Yeah the finishing move was exaggerated but it was was dope as shit, Especially when rza smirked then turned around to perform the final attack. The best way I could describe this or compare it would b a new version of the kid with the Golden arms. I especially like that they started the movie off by rockin to some shame on a nigga...i mean its only right. And I'm buying the DVD when it drops...WHAT!

That's the part where he explains about the Chi energy and how it can move objects. BTW... that part where he gets his arm cut off, RZA did an awesome job. He really sounded scared and in pain.

LMAO ! word but if his arms aint get chopped off, there wont be no MAN WITH THE IRON FISTS !! lol


***SPOILER ALERT***



Ok, Heres the TEK-REVIEW...


So yesterday i caught the $7 tues special at the cinema by the job after work.. shit was on point ! story was off the hook, action sequences were solid and the characters were cool. although the CGI was decent, i felt RZA should have went with the natural effects instead of relying on CG... im sure it had to do with the budget cuz if they didnt fuck with CGI the effects would have took them days to get it right and that just equals mad $$$

Also, i wish RZA releases the directors cut when the DVD/Bluray comes out.. the original version he had in mind for the film was 4hrs long and wanted to release the film in 2 parts but Eli Roth scratched that idea..lol im sure those that seen the flick felt the flow of the movie werent too smooth, felt choppy at times and because there were many storylines, it comes off rushed, like how it exactly was ; trying to cut a 4hr intended story compressed into 90mins.

one of the HIGHLIGHTS of the flick for me has to be Russell Crowe LOL ! dude damn near stole the show !! thats saying alot from me cuz i cant stand Russell Crowe, i respect him as an actor but ive never been a fan of the guy yet i didnt mind him one bit in this film... Jamie Chung looked fucking stunning in this moreso than any other shit ive seen her in.. Lucy Liu did her thing as well, pretty much reprising her Oren Ishii role from Kill Bill.. it was sick that she beat niggaz in the head playing the brothel Madame but little did we know of her intent to take over the Jungle Village..

Dope cameos or should i say minor roles from Pam Grier & Gordon Liu, props to RZA for getting them on board, tho their parts were small, it made a huge difference for me as they were the perfect fit for the characters they played. the young afro RZA had me dyin..LOL reminded me of him during the early Wu/Gravediggaz era..

oh, cant forget the intro credits of the movie with the revised Shame on a Nigga as the backdrop song and how the credits end and the flick starts right after Dirty's line "The Wu is comin thru at a theatre near you and get funk like a shoe ! WHAT !" plus the way RZA used "Unpredictable" during one of the fight sequences was fucking sick too..

like someone said earlier, def. not for the general audience.. im just amazed that RZA kept it fucking real as possible delivering a modern day KUNG FU flick to the cinemas world wide and aint water it down one bit.. besides Batista/Crowe/Grier and few others, everyone else in the film were all orientals !! LOL.. i found it funny that all them spoke perfect english and worried thats the direction the film was taking but nah.. RZA knew whats up as plenty of it were in Chinese with english subs.

all in all props to the RZA on his accomplishments, i cant imagine how he must be feeling these days now that the idea he had in his head for years is finally in the theatres across the country and soon to be released world wide.

TEK-RATING : 3.5 ninja stars out of 5.

P.S. LOL @ Tarantino introducing Iron Fists and plugging his own joint prior to the trailer.

peace.

watched last night, I thought it was pretty decent for RZA's first film. Thought some of the fight scenes could have been done better and some of the actors were just bad! Overall though it was entertaining and definatly worth checking out but as already said not for the everyday movie goer! Russell Crowe looks like he's turning into Oliver Reed lol

Pretty good debut for Rza. I thought some of the songs didn't really fit the scene and a bit of the acting was suspect, but overall I really enjoyed it. The look of the film itself was very dope. Ill color choices and different visuals.

Still haven't seen it. Watched RZA's laughable performance in GI JOE the other day. Still want to see this though.
