Rza’s kung-fu epic has been in some level of development for ages. In that The Man With The Iron Fists was announced in 2008, though he’d been talking about the film since at least 2005. When it finally came time to get the rapper’s passion project made, it’s hard to deny that he gathered together a hell of a group of collaborators to back him up.
The film, while being Rza’s directorial debut, was co-written by him and Eli Roth. Roth also produced alongside Quentin Tarantino.
What I’m trying to say is that The Man With The Iron Fists has been a long time coming, and judging from the first trailer (which is actually the first footage released), it may have been worth the wait.
It’s like every shot tops the last one in fucking craziness. And goddamn does this look like fun. This is definitely an opening night, packed theatre movie. Definitely.
