Yes, That's A Man Getting His Eyeball Punched Out. RZA's The Man With The Iron Fists Is Like Chopsocky On Acid
In nineteenth century China, a blacksmith who makes elaborate weapons for a small village is forced to unite with warriors and assassins to protect the village and defeat a traitor who threatens to destroy them all.
Sounds basic, eh? Yeah, maybe you should watch the trailer, because The Man With The Iron Fists is actually flying around like a drunken dragonfly, hitting equal parts completely ridiculous, breathtakingly stupid, and absolutely friggin' amazeballs. And I mean this in a good way. It's part House of Flying Daggers, part Kill Bill, part anime bedlam, and all kinds of crazy. It's chopsocky on LSD. Watch the trailer:
There's almost too much going on there to process. Some sort of katana blood ballet, a dude who turns into gold, flying kung fu hookers, Lucy Liu bringing O-ren Ishii back from the dead, and Russell Crowe twirling his mustache like his life depended on it. Throw in what will likely be an absolutely killer soundtrack?
I love it, in all it's loud, wild, overdone glory.
