  • RZA's directorial debut is heavy on bloody kung fu action...and light on just about everything else. show more

  • The movie plays things relatively straight, acknowledging clichés without the winking irony in which modern homages usually indulge. As such, it's giddy fun - a well-made genre picture that sends up its influences even as it clearly reveres them. show more

  • It's all sufficiently well done and amusing enough to satisfy the appetites of fans who mainline this sort of thing, but it also sports a concocted, second-hand feel common to this sort of throwback homage. show more

    Wow, very mechanical fight scenes, but that okay... the acting is even more mechanical. The voice over is just plain horrible. They should\'ve over-dubbed the rapper accent with somebody who could actually speak clearly and with some emotion.

    Guess that's what you get when you put a rapper in charge of budgeting, no money left to get actual chinese people
