Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: If Iron Fists is sometimes badly made, it is refreshingly badly made. – Nick Pinkerton, Village Voice, Nov 2, 2012

Rotten: Lunatic, slipshod, absurdly violent, horribly acted, and borderline incomprehensible. – Ty Burr, Boston Globe, Nov 4, 2012

Rotten: There's little happening here except slavish imitation and embarrassing hackwork. – Peter Howell, Toronto Star, Nov 2, 2012

Fresh: The fists, feet and digital blood go flying in this enjoyable, frenetic, largely forgettable chop-socky extravaganza about, well, about a man with iron fists who gets into lots of fights. – Jim Schembri, 3AW, Dec 7, 2012

Don't waste your life away

This is the worst movie I've ever seen. Ever. No seriously, you don't even understand how horrible it was. I've never written a movie review in my life. But if I can save one soul the agony of watching this, I will have served my life's purpose.


"The Man with the Iron Fists" is just as ridiculous as its name: a wildly over-the-top mix of slapdash acting, hilariously bad dialogue, and a whole lot of Tarantino-esque kung fu fights. At around 95 minutes, the whole thing's a decently enjoyable ride, depending on how much you genuinely enjoy campy martial arts movies of the '70s and '80s. Granted, most of the hyper-stylized action sequences suffer from uneven execution and horrendous editing, and the incomprehensible storyline is beyond saving, but at least the visuals are fun to look at. Plus, Russell Crowe and Lucy Liu are pretty entertaining as the only actors in the film who actually bring some fun to their roles. Props to first-time director RZA for trying to pay homage to kung fu films of the past, but "The Man with the Iron Fists" comes up just a bit short in its attempts at recreating the overblown joy of manic bloodshed and over-the-top acting. It's a fun film to watch if you literally have nothing else worth doing, but I wouldn't exactly call it a must-see. As long as you don't mind slapdash writing, terrible acting (particularly from RZA), and a few clumsily executed fight scenes, there's no reason why you shouldn't have a good time with this martial arts mishmash of action-packed absurdity. If you're a fan of the "Kill Bill" movies or pretty much any other flick directed by Quentin Tarantino, this movie should be just your cup of tea.
