MY REVIEW:
WHAT. THE. FUCK. -- Alright, so, a family member came down to visit in November, and her bf  and my lil bro wanted to watch this movie... so, I gave in and was all "Okay!"... NO! No no no no no no no NO NO NO NO NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. Gah. Waste of money!

You've got these amazing actors... I mean, come on. Lucy Liu? That's a badass chick right there. Russell Crowe? He's awesome. As for Batista and RZA...ehh. Horrible acting on their parts. Aside from the actors and the ONE surprising factor that got to me (which I won't spoil for those of you who are going to ignore me and watch this movie anyway) this movie was pretty craptastic. I was bored about 10 minutes into it and wish I would have pulled out my cell to just text my life away, but I was being a good movie goer and kept my phone at bay. 

Action? Yeah, there was some action. Different clans going at it and killing each other. Or should I say, one clan in particular just slaughtering everyone else. The fighting bits were pretty cool, I'll admit. I though that was pretty good as far as Ninja-Ass-Whoopin movies go. But, other than that, it was pretty boring. I stopped following the storyline and would only perk up when someone decided it was time to kick ass. The final battle had it's ups and downs. Remember that surprising factor I mentioned earlier? Yepp, it's in this final scene. Pretty awesome, but not awesome enough lol. 

Would I recommend this movie? Ahhh.. I dunno. Actually, I think my little bro liked it, so for that alone. If you love the whole fake blood and guts thing with your action flicks, then yeah, watch this movie. Other than that? Nah, don't watch it. I wouldn't recommend it. 

MY RATING:
I would have rated this a 1.5 but, alas, I do not give half ratings.

  6. Thank you for sharing your thoughts on The Man with the Iron Fists, Ana. I watched it last night after I got home from my shift at DISH; I know you didn’t really like it, but I thought it was a decent martial arts flick. I’m glad I rented it through my DISH Blockbuster @Home disk by mail service. With over 100,000 DVD/Blu-Ray movies, TV shows, and video games, I always have something new showing up at my door.
