Overall opinion of the movie.

Really bad movie, the first version of "the Man with the iron fists" is interesting; photo, music, plot, cast. But this second version is bad from start to end; aerial shots are really poor (drone shakes once in a while as well as the color quality), acting of the secondary characters is poor as well, not even overacted is just bad acting (90% of the cast is secondary or not decently known actors). The plot, visual effects, make up and fight choreography is also poor. After 10 min is really hard to keep on watching, you really have to try hard to kind of enjoy it. The music is kind of OK, but not compared to the first movie, which in my opinion was the most interesting part of a Kungfu kind of movie with the RZA music taste.

Unfortunately a really, but really bad sequel.

If you like B type of movies, like the 80's delta force or American ninja, you might like this one, I say might.

A village has been ruled by the ruthless Master Ho who runs the mine. Li Kung preaches patience in cases of young girls being killed. Lord Pi (Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa) is the ineffective Mayor. Li Kung's brother challenges Ho's man and actually wins. Thaddeus Henry Smith (RZA) is the Man with the Iron Fists. He is attacked and falls into the river. Li Kung's daughter Innocence saves him and returns him back to health.

I'm sure RZA loves the old kung fu movies and seeks to recreate them in his vision. In a way, he has recreated kung fu B-movies. The acting is functional to amateurish. There are fights that are fight-like. In the old days after Bruce Lee's death, there were many movie with actors who have similar names to Bruce. This is on par with one of those movies. It is lacking the spirit of a master and can only be a shadow of other better films.

"You just walked into a windstorm of flying elephant sh.."

The only association this film has with the original "The Man With the Iron Fists" is the appearance of RZA as the Blacksmith, who may or may not have had the name Thaddeus in the first film. I just don't remember. There is no other continuity to speak of, as this story zeroes in on the Golden Nectar of Immortality and an evil village master who intends to corner the market on it. The bad guy is Master Ho, a poor choice of name as I think about it now as it carries a terribly misplaced connotation. Think about it a minute and it will come to you.

What martial art action there is here is fairly sanitized compared to the original, not as bloody or as intricately choreographed with fancy wire work. The Blacksmith doesn't even seem to be the principal character after the opening sequence occurs, as the location of the story moves over to the village of Tsai Fu. The story's hero in this picture is Li Kung (Dustin Nguyen), who after taking his share of hits from the villagers for not doing a better job as leader of the opposition to Master Ho, finally decides to offer a challenge following the murder of his brother.

That about sums things up as I don't want to get too long winded here. I wouldn't say it's a terrible film but it's got a lot of the 'if you've seen one you've seen them all' quality to it. One thing that does stand out is the rap lyrics accompanying the martial arts action, that's something I don't thing I've seen or heard before. And lest I forget, the cast credits include what is perhaps the world champion of unpronounceable names for the character of The Abbott - Schnitrnunt Busarakamwong. That's even got Carl Yastrzemski beat.
