The Man with the Iron Fists (2012)

Link: The Man with the Iron Fists

Summary: In this martial arts film written, directed, and starring rapper RZA, a blacksmiff makes himself arms of iron to face villains who are fighting over gold or something.

Thoughts: I honestly enjoyed some elements of the film, mostly the over-the-top fantastical wildness of its setting, its characters, and the unique style of weaponry.  Many fun elements to play with.  Unfortunately, there didn’t seem to be a story.  Too many characters seemed to be fighting for no reason, and the dialog was as inane as it gets.  It’s all the more annoying because the fantastical elements could’ve easily inspired a much more interesting story in the hands of better writers.  Very disappointing film.
