Low expectations helped me to enjoy this dumb-fun film that walks a line between clumsy homage and inadvertant spoof. The lavish production values and over-the-top weapon-toys help keep it frothily fulfilling.

5 stars for me as a genre movie in a genre I really enjoy, and I really enjoyed this. It's more than just Chinese, but Chinese novels, comics, and movies have created a special and wonderfully imaginative, complex and convoluted world of martial arts genre, replete with weird weapons, beautiful costumes, mysterious chi based powers, and lots of betrayals. RZA loves that fantastic imaginary world and has visualized beautifully and while it isn't 5 stars the way Citizen Kane or Casablanca is, it is a great addition to the genre. Hopefully RZA will be making some more like this.

If you go into this expecting a good movie, you will be disappointed, but taken for what it is, a violent, hip-hop kung-fu movie, it's at least entertaining. Wu-Tang master RZA directed, co-wrote (with Eli Roth) and stars and does not show the same genius with film as he does with music (oh, he does the music too). Like Tarantino's movies (he did not direct this, btw), this a mash-up/remix of many different styles and genres, but mostly Shaw Bros. movies, which gave Wu-Tang their name, "Enter the Dragon" and spaghetti westerns. When characters are talking, it's generally terrible, but when they are killing each other, it's generally pretty good. RZA is a blank, Russell Crowe seems to think he's Oliver Reed and Lucy Liu is basically playing her "Kill Bill" character. Again, don't expect much, especially in terms of plot and acting, but if you like over the top kung-fu action, you'll get it.

Several comments suggest that this is a Quentin Tarantino film, but it's not. It was written and directed by RZA, who stars as the Blacksmith, the main character. Eli Roth cowrote the screenplay and helped produce. Tarantino merely lent his name in a "presented by" credit. The film is *very* bloody and there are too many characters, most of whom die. The Blacksmith is not compelling, despite an interesting backstory and Pam Grier as his mother. My favorite fighters were the Geminis and Bronze Body.

WORST kung-fu movie EVER! I've seen hundreds of kung-fu movies over the last 40 years and this is the WORST. I turned it off two-thirds of the way through. Don't waste your time.

I knew this was movie was going to be bad, but this was just SO stupid.
(It was fairly entertaining though... the action scenes were pretty good) I'm glad I didn't pay money to see it.

It was O.K for a home TV movie. I was entertained and interesting. But it was NOT worth the long library wait or the price to rent from a Red Box. I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.

A good action film but filled with
mindless violence. The script is rather DUMB.

Like all Tarrintino films this one is extremely violent, but it at least does have a reasonable plot to hold things together. The characters are very one dimensional, and it is easy to predict the overall outcome, in pretty much all cases.

The stunts were a little much to be believed, either that or Universal has got a corner on the anti- gravity market.

All things considered if was an interesting way to waste a couple of hours, but it is not a movie I'd ever pay to see.

Violence: Massive amounts of violence, but in a campy way as for all the blood that is portrayed in this film to be real the cast would have had to be a few thousand strong, and all would have had to have high blood pressure.
