I'm no the type to usually get too hype for movies these days, but this looks like a nice, fun, kung fu flick similar to the ones that showed during Saturday afternoons when I was a kid. Hope this doesn't disappoint.

Iron Fists better be fucking TIGHT

http://www.okayplayer.com/news/rza-direct-genghis-khan-no-mans-land.html

With the RZAs directorial debut Man With The Iron Fists (you may have heard us mention it one or six times) punching the eyeball out a theater near you this Friday, November 2nd, the Abbot has already announced his next two film projects. First and foremost, he has signed on to direct the historical action flick meets biopic Genghis Khan, written and executive produced by John Milius (for non-movie nerds, that is the dude who wrote the lines Go ahead, make my day and I love the smell of napalm in the morning for Dirty Harry and Apocalypse Now, respectively). The Hollywood Reporter sums up the premise of the moviewhich has apparently been on the shelf for years until the Wu-master stepped in to RZA-rect itlike this:

Khan, one of the great military figures in world history, is the ruler who united the Mongol tribes and conquered great parts of Asia and Eastern Europe in the early 13th century. The story will be told from the point of view of Khans son and grandson.

Shooting should begin next year in China. Meanwhile, RZA has also attached his 3 letters to No Mans Land. Heres what we know about that one:

No Mans Land is being produced by Bill Mechanic and his Pandemonium production banner as well asReginald Hudlin, a producer on Quentin Tarantinos Django Unchained. The script, by Trey Ellis and David Klass, centers on a man who steals a powerful criminals diamond that soon proves to be far more valuable than initially thought. With the help of a dancer, he attempts to stay alive and cash in on the jewel. The story takes place during one night and has been described as having echoes of The Warriors.

If two films a year is going to be the template going forward, we might have to change the epithet RZA-rector to RZA, director.

it was just bad. the action scenes are nearly as incoherent as the storyline.

qt and roth should be shot for telling rza this shit was anything other than hot garbage.

it's days like this where i hate being a genre fan

However, for some reason, when his name is on something, "incoherence" becomes "part of the grindhouse aesthetic."

As much as I utterly despised Death Proof, it at least LOOKS like a movie-- it is framed well, with confident camera movement and consistency in editing style.

This movie looks like RZA had no clue what he wanted to do. There's no coherence to anything, with the exception of Russell Crowe's weight.

I didnt expect this movie to be good by any stretch of the imagination but I at least hoped it would be really fun. It wasnt even that.

I know what The RZA (co-writer, director and star) was going for here. He was clearly a fan of wuxia movies and tried to create one here with CGI. Those movies werent cinematic masterpieces either and maybe he should have drawn upon other influences. The movie was poorly written and structured particularly the interruption of action to get into one characters backstory.

There were a few entertaining performances by Russell Crowe (Jack Knife), Lucy Liu (Madam Blossom) and especially Byron Mann (Silver Lion). Some of the action setpieces were cool particularly the final free-for-all at the Pink Blossom brothel but it wasnt worth it. This is a straight-to-DVD film. Wait for it to get there.

Waaaay too much exposition
You could tell this shit was in his head too long.
And then there was the odd choices of when and when not to use CG
You got CG Brass Body, but you can't let us see them arm nubs?
And then there was all that blood, but no titties.

But yo, I was fucking entertained and laughed my ass off
Maybe my expectations were far lower than y'all or something
Maybe I've watched too many Kung fu movies
I had fun

I don't you niggas were expecting from a kung-fu movie directed by RZA, but everyone in my packed theater had fun in this.

My only problem is RZA tried to tell too much story and had too many characters and it suffered greatly because of it. But like I said that was my only gripes with it.

But liked I said my packed theater loved this film and it's a fun movie all around.

I was excited as shit about this film, but the incompetence of the editing/framing/script/acting consistency interfered with its ability to be fun. I don't think people thinking it sucked expected anything other than an enjoyable grindhouse style kung fu genre flick with sweet action and juicy dialogue. There just wasn't *nearly* enough of either.

More fighting and titties would've been nice.

I can literally only think of a handful of films where this has worked

usually it just comes across as heavy-handed exposition, as is the case here

Damn, it was a RZA directed kung fu movie, I'm pretty sure it was exactly how it should have been... a big budget, modern day, cheesy martial arts movie. The theater I was in, ppl loved it, and that made it even more fun.

Don't apologize.

These people are insecure dicks who are simply hating
the movie because a rapper directed it.

Its insecure hipsters 101 up in here.

The way the entire theater busted out in laughter when this dude is a slave with Pam Grier as his mother cannot be duplicated. This film was a comedy with some slick action added within it. Since there is no part where the film tries to take itself serious, I place it in the same category of Planet Terror, Death Race and Hobo with a Shotgun. Good film, I'll buy it on Google Play when it becomes available sometime next year....

Regards,

On The Lookout 4:
some new music. WTF is going on this year?

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

i mean it was really funny, kind of corny, but the fight scenes were great.

this was a campy kung-fu movie. i didn't have any particular expectation but like someone said when quentin tarantino is involved, it gives the film credibility.

i though The Geminis and Madam Blossom (Lucy Liu) and her girls were some of the standout characters. Lucy Liu was a G.

Byron Mann as Silver Lion was hilarious. Like a rock star kung fu gangster. LOL

I liked RZA's role as The Blacksmith, though a little more character development might've made the film even better. Ditto for Zen-Yi (Yune) and Jack Knife (Crowe), as these guys were (supposed to be) the main/major stars.

While I could've waited for this film on DVD, no regrets for watching it at the theater. Like I said, it was very entertaining. Not THEE best kung-fu movie, but its still fun to watch.

it's like RZA convinced somebody to give him a lot of money to make a movie after letting them listen to the entire Wu catalog and told them it would the most epic kung fu movie ever. i spent the first half of the movie wondering how a black guy ended up in china in the 1800s. and what little kid says the word "formidable"? it wasn't bad, it just wasn't good.

She don't really wear that diminutive, passive shit

She's on some strong woman shit

Kinda like a black woman even, seems that way to me
at least

Part of it is physical (she doesn't seem that small),
don't know if she is

Part of it is on some Queens shit

Bitch ain't having it

That's why she stands out

Still rocks with white boys exclusive though...that's
real stereotypical...can't be mad at that though

Alright now, this is a movie directed and starring RZA as some kind of kung-fu hero with an iron fist. The trailer looks b-movie as hell and direct to DVD. I can't even say how they were able to afford Russel Crowe--maybe he lost a few too many poker games and this is how he had to pay up?

Honestly if it hadn't been talked up so much I would have just assumed it was Kill Bill: the Bootleg Version, with bad acting, bad dialogue, a dumb story, an awkward mix of camp and taking itself too seriously, and lots of action with occasionally really gory shit that comes out of nowhere. And I would've enjoyed it for that.

But then it was hyped and hyped and hyped.

These comments are reassuring me that it's everything I thought it would be in the beginning.

This doesn't really seem like run to the theater shit. This is shit to watch on the couch late at night when I'm staying in but can't sleep.

she says to me after the movie
"he always had a look on his face like he was about to drool, looked real goofy" and "not a good actor, just "there", like there was no reason for him to be the lead"
I was like "you saw american gangster right? he played a cop, remember?"
she goes "yea, not believable there either"
It took all I had not to be like "Bob Digi, yea you know who is he!"

In response to Reply # 0


          

I knew it was dumb as hell as I was watching it.

But that's what RZA was trying to do.

He aimed to make a wild ass silly "Big Trouble In Little China" flick. And he achieved that.

I loved "BTILC" and dug this shit too.

Shit was live action comic book.

Everybody wants to pretend to be a movie critic now. Just watch the flick and have some fun for 90 mins.

I had 2 problems with it.

1.) No titties. Shit didn't feel like it was Rated R
2.) Them Chinese cats accents had me blown. They sounded like Brad & Chad from So Cal. Didn't even try to sound Asian.

Other than that, I'm gonna put that shit on a lot. Background. Re-watch. Whenever I wanna see somebody kick another cat in the face. Or a nigga turn into copper. Lucy Liu being Lucy Liu. RZA's hairline look crazy. Fat Russell Crowe with a super knife.

Shit tanked something horribly,but I wouldn't be mad if he made a sequel.

Silver Lion reminded me of Chappelle's Rick James or Prince lol, especially when he said 'kiss the ring' in front of the mirror.

The Gemini fight was great, love the music during that scene, my favourite track of the score.

A lot of good looking women in the film. I'm not big on Lucy Liu but Jamie Chung and Zen Yi's wife were gorgeous.

The backstory for the Blacksmith dragged for way too long, it's pretty much my only complaint. Well, that and no boobs...

I'll buy this on blu-ray when it's on sale, and hopefully there'll be some cool features and deleted scenes. They cut it down from 4 hours to 90 minutes apparently.

Problem is, doesn't have the uncle toms and

the Brass Body fight at the end was pretty sick.
had a shitload of blood n gory bits.
everything was done fine, direction was pretty on point in some scenes (the camera revolving around Jack after he guts that other dude during his intro scene at the brothel, the rage just fucking FLOWED offa him n the choice of cam movement really enhanced the shit out of that one lil scene). whole thing was some kinda dumb but not really fun, but ykno, emphasis on FUN. and i think everyone involved knew that.

i honestly was wanting and expecting something more along the lines of THIS: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CE3hb__ylG4. then again i been wishing he made this into a full length feature since that damn songs been out lol. but i mean.....it was PERFECT.

103. "average..."
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

..i'm a fan of kung fu flicks

while the cinematography is certainly on point, the execution is seriously lacking in this film.

and honestly, i felt like rza didn't really deliver. he's had solid turns in supporting roles, but this came across as life-less. almost robotic.

too much hollywood muscle associated with this film for them to falter.

the fight choreography was nothin' stellar. in the time since the crouching tiger/matrix, the art of fighting on film has become a bit stagnant.

not terrible, but certainly not great.

i'm really impressed with how well Rza was able to bring that vision to life...and the fact that he got this cast (which includes the dude who trained Van Damme in Kickboxer) and get it released nationwide (with help from Eli and QT) is even more impressive. Kudos to him...i hope he keeps making movies.

116. "Bomb confession: I let motherfuckas scare me out of going to the theater"
In response to Reply # 115


  

          

between folks I talked to out here, this post, some of the Grantland digs & other stuff I allowed myself to be talked out of giving RZA, a man who with his contributions to the world exists on the highest tier of my personal cultural icons (with Bobby Dylan, pre-Bullwinkle Deniro, Ali, AI & possibly 3-4 others) my cash while this was still playing at the cinema down the street for what seemed like only a week.

I'd been planning on going opening night for like a year up until a week or so before it actually came out.

Ended up Red-Boxing this last month, bracing myself for the bad & realizing 'this shit is fucking FUN, WTF was I tripping over or listening to?!?'.

I'm fucking proud of RZA for this one, I hope he gets to make more but it doesn't seem like he will be able to get another one made anytime soon due to reception/box-office and that's a shame.

This should be a fixture in the college dorms, 18-year-old Bomb would have watched this tripping my balls off in a Northeastern dorm room, never knowing or caring that others were claimed it was a trainwreck before seeing it myself.

The cast was fantastic & clearly having fun, the action was campy but still cool, I guess the weakest part of it was RZA as narrator/actor (that part probably could have gone elsewhere while he concentrated on just making the movie because I think it was played a bit too straight pitted against the hamminess of Crowe & Co) but that's a minor issue.

I'm with you dude, this shit was a cool little 2010's kung-fu homage that deserves cult status.

For Shame. For Why?

Dog, I have watched it about 2.5 times in total and have
THOROUGHLY enjoyed it (1.5 real sit throughs, the other
time background)

Its the right type of tribute, captures everything we love
about that genre, has some NOT overone cool historical shit in
here, a solid little message + some very good special effects

The little women empowerment shit in there was dope

I just don't get how ANYONE can actually HATE this movie.

This movie really is likeable from all angles

In response to Reply # 115


  

          

There were definitely problems with it. Acting/Dialogue specifically. Visually I thought it was quite well done and the STORY in and of itself while a tad cliche was well done IMO>

I have to agree w/you on principle - if another director had made it, it would have been a cult classic, rightly, or wrongly. - hands down.

I hope they do a sequel tho. I'd like to see more. I think RZA can take this farther and do better w/it.

Right, because the best Kung Fu flicks of all time had
stellar acting dialogue

The dialogue and acting were perfectly fine

Visually I thought it was quite well done and
>the STORY in and of itself while a tad cliche was well done

"Cliche?"

You're joking, right?

Its a tribute, throwback film with some awesome wrinkles
added to the classic format of Kung Fu film

There's a black angle, a women's empowerment angle...its
like, the perfect type of throwback

They won't, because white hipsters tore it down because a
"rapper" directed it

This is what Kanye is bitching about, btw

When you're a rapper, you aren't respected as an artist
and even when you do good stuff people invent ways to shit
on your work

I ain't gonna act like it was a great film tho. It wasn't.

This is the intentionally bad argument. Doesn't work for Death Trap, and doesn't work here either.

agree to disagree - there's room for differing viewpoints.

Again, itentionally bad argument. I don't find it valid.

Oh I LOVED all that. Again, I said the story was a TAD cliche, but overall well done. I LIKED the plot. But I gotta call a spade a spade.

>They won't, because white hipsters tore it down because a

I'm actually kinda sad about this. I REALLY think a sequel is in order.

Again, on principle, I agree. I don't feel it applies to me tho. I'm judging him fairly and I'm a HUGE Kung Fu movie buff. But to pretend that Chinese Connection is a better film than Fist of Legend is just nostalgia and wrong. Kung Fu movies have moved on from the 'homage' he was trying to do and for a reason, IMO.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

It needed a few tweaks here and there in order to make it above average-great.

The fight scenes needed to be more along the lines of the old school kung fu movies. less slow motion 30 second cut aways. None of the actors are true martial artist so that of course is the reason why.

I was expecting Shaw Brothers and that didnt happen. Might be my fault really.

There room for both

I also liked it but I will not be calling it good

Spades said this and I agree heavily

I guess the weakest part of it was RZA as narrator/actor (that part probably could have gone elsewhere while he concentrated on just making the movie because I think it was played a bit too straight pitted against the hamminess of Crowe & Co) but that's a minor issue.


It needed a lot less razor in front of the camera
More behind
His work in front was pretty awful and contrasted w liu, Crowe, ESP Mann
Who did the damn thing
Yeah nah
But it was fun with low points
