The Man with the Iron Fists is undeniably colorful and action- packed movie. It stars by Russel Crowe, RZA, Lucy Liu, Cung Le, Byron Mann, Jamie Chung and David Bautista “Batista”.
The movie is centered to Blacksmith (RZA) in a 19th century imperial China who creates deadly weapons for the clans, intending to use his payments to his lover Lady Silk. One of the powerful clans in the village was the Lion Clan. It was headed by Gold Lion.
One day, Gold was assassinated. He was betrayed by his lieutenants Silver Lion and Bronze Lion, who plan to steal the gold. Gold’s son Zen-Yi learns of his father’s murder and sets off to the village to seek revenge.
Jack Knife (Russel Crowe) who is Emperor’s undercover emissary arrives in the village to monitor the gold, and takes up residence in the Pink Blossom. He stayed in the Pink Blossom, a brothel run by Lady Silk’s madame, Madam Blossom.
After arriving in the village, Zen-Yi and his men are confronted by Brass. They had intense-action fights. Brass beats Zen-Yi because his skin turns to metal. The metal man destroyed Zen Yi’s blade-laden armor. Observing the fight, the Blacksmith rescues Zen-Yi and helps him recover.
Meanwhile, the Lions suspect that the Blacksmith is helping Zen-Yi. They tortured him to get some information where is Gold’s son. The Blacksmith refuses to talk and his forearms are cut off by Brass. Jack, who had been following the Blacksmith, saves him. With Jack, the Blacksmith crafts his greatest weapon; a pair of iron forearms that he is capable of animating using this energy.
At the end of the movie, Zen-Yi joins Jack and the Blacksmith fight the Lion. Blossom who is also as the Black Widows, together with her girls also fight the lion clan.
Zen-Yi, Jack and the Blacksmith win the battle.

I’m really a big fan of action movies. When it comes to fight scenes, I must say that you cannot ask for more on The Man with the Iron Fists. It’s so amazing looking those characters using the martial arts/ kung fu old style moves. All the stunts are really good. The fights ingeniously choreographed.
The Man with the Iron Fists is a PG 18 movie simply because the violence was really extreme.. There’s plenty of spinning, running, jumping up walls and through the air, skull bashing, bones snapping, sword clashing, lots of bloods and other actions which are not so good on your eyes. The
Kudos to Russell Crowe who plays Jack Knife. He gives spice on the movie. He’s always the most interesting character when he’s in a scene.
To RZA, I’m not that really impressed on his acting. I don’t know if that’s really the character on the movie or he’s the way it is. I’m just looking for more, hopefully… because he ‘s the center of the story of the film.
On the other hand, Lucy Liu as Blossom justified the character being the head of a brothel.
So, If you’re a kung fu fan, or a fan of martial arts in general, this movie is definitely for you.
Presented by Quentin Tarantino and directed by RZA, The Man with the Iron Fists will hit the cinema soon!
