Russell Crowe & Lucy Liu's 'Iron' War
Every now and then, a trailer looks so mind-blowingly original, effortlessly exciting and visually intoxicating, you fear the finished film could never live up to those lofty expectations.
But I have a feeling that will not be the case with The Man with The Iron Fists -- not only because it's produced by master of decadent disaster, Quentin Tarantino, but co-written by the endlessly inventive Eli Roth and directed by rapper extraordinaire RZA.
The movie 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 as if Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon had a baby with Kill Bill and then that child banged Sam Peckinpah's brain to birth a new breed of badass bloodshed.
In addition to starring co-writer/director RZA, Iron Fists features Russell Crowe, Lucy Liu giving her best O-Ren Ishi realness, Pam Grier and an army of martial arts loving stunt men.
