The one film I’ve been looking forward to for the entire year is RZA’s (Wu-Tang Clan) Man With The Iron Fists. I think the film will be entertaining and will for sure have an amazing soundtrack. I also think there may be some problematic parts of the film that I have yet to really fully form an opinion about. My first concern is the lead Russell Crowe in a film that “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.”
It’s also presented by Quentin Tarantino which raises another red flag for me as a viewer. However, we’ve seen several films at VL and some were less than exceptional, some surprised us, and some were fantastic! I’m sure Man With The Iron Fists will fall into one of these (or another) category.
Check out the trailer below. The film is scheduled to be in theaters November 2, 2012. Have you heard of the film? Will you plan to see it as well?
