The Man with the Iron Fists trailer
You can tell that Quentin Tarantino has been involved in this film, even if it's more of an influence and with the keyword "presents" after his name because Lucy Liu's character and an entire scene seemed to be ripped right out of Kill Bill.
Still, the film looks like it might be a lot of fun because it's not just the fantastic Liu that's in the film there's also Russell Crowe, Jamie Chung, Pam Grier, Rick Yune and Cung Le, and of course it's co-written by Eli Roth.
The surprise is that RZA is the man who has co-written the story with Eli Roth and directed the film, RZA, a man more known for the soundtrack side of films than anything. So it's a huge surprise to see that Russell Crowe is involved, and taking a leading role.
Could this be good? Here's the blurb for some details of The Man with the Iron Fists:
Quentin Tarantino presents The Man With the Iron Fists, an action-adventure inspired by kung-fu classics as interpreted by his longtime collaborators RZA and Eli Roth. Making his debut as a big-screen director and leading man, RZA-alongside a stellar international cast led by Russell Crowe and Lucy Liu-tells the epic story of warriors, assassins and a lone outsider hero in nineteenth-century China who must unite to destroy the clan traitor who would destroy them all.
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.
Blending astonishing martial-arts sequences from some of the masters of this world with the signature vision he brings as the leader of the Wu-Tang Clan and as one of hip-hop's most dominant figures of the past two decades, RZA embarks upon his most ambitious, stylized and thrilling project to date.
Now here's the all important trailer for The Man with the Iron Fists through TrailerAddict to see what you think of it. I'm rather surprised and think it might just work, even if there's a huge slice of Kill Bill in there.
Would you go and see it? If so what's attracting you? The names around RZA?
