      Critics Consensus

      Messy kung-fu homage The Man with the Iron Fists demonstrates a slavish affection for the genre it mimics, for better or worse.

      Donald Clarke Irish Times One is occasionally infuriated by the archness of the exercise. But there is a charming innocence to Fists' faith in the values of 1970s cross-cultural exploitation. Rated: 3/5 Dec 7, 2012 Full Review Jake Wilson The Age (Australia) Predictably, this kind of gleeful fanboy excess yields diminishing returns. RZA hasn't much sense of storytelling rhythm, and lacks Tarantino's gift for turning adolescent obsessions into something uniquely personal. Rated: 2.5/5 Dec 7, 2012 Full Review David Stratton At the Movies (Australia) Thank goodness for Russell Crowe who gives a sardonic, who-gives-a-damn performance as one of the good guys. Rated: 2.5/5 Dec 7, 2012 Full Review Annalee Newitz io9.com In any case, Crowe's a hoot, RZA's instrumentals mostly deliver (save the occasional and baffling metal guitar), and I left the theater not lamenting that this movie exists. Good hustle, everybody. May 23, 2018 Full Review Sean Burns Philadelphia Weekly All that matters here are cockamamie anachronistic music cues, low-rent filmmaking and one spectacularly hammy turn from Russell Crowe. May 3, 2015 Full Review Jeremy Lebens We Got This Covered The Man with the Iron Fists is an off-balanced and bloated martial arts film that barely gets by on its gorgeous set design. Rated: 3/5 Feb 17, 2013 Full Review Read all reviews

      Dick C It's a very good film, The Man with the Iron Fists, 2012... Rated 4 out of 5 stars 09/01/23 Full Review James B sooo bad its good russell crowe was cool in film and so is rza cool film lots of action cool kung fu action Rated 4 out of 5 stars 08/15/23 Full Review Elvis D Primero debo decir que siento que esta película está algo infravalorada, ya que las estadísticas muestran que no tuvo mucha aceptación, pero creo que merece algo de mención, ya que fue hecha en modo de homenaje a las clásicas películas de artes marciales del cine chino. Además, tiene un buen elenco, también buenas escenas de acción y escenas gore que fueron desarrolladas por Gregory Nicotero y Howard Berger. Tampoco se puede dejar de lado la banda sonora que tiene buenas canciones y una partidura compuesta por el mismo RZA. Para mí fue una buena película en su momento y me gusta pensar que películas de este tipo son un excelente ejemplo de como se tiene que hacer una adaptación live action de un anime. Yo le doy un 10/10. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/14/23 Full Review james s Fun, well done, great cast. More background for Jack Rated 4 out of 5 stars 10/01/22 Full Review muhammad s Just cant imagine Quentin produce this kind of movie ...good plot but bad main characters.. blacksmith with a stoner eyed...LOL Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 08/16/22 Full Review rob b Enjoyable illogical B-Grade film that somehow works.
