RZA’s long-in-the-making kung fu homage The Man With the Iron Fists was a divisive film for action buffs, to say the least. We’ve discussed the film extensively at Cityonfire.com (see: here and here), but needless to say the general consensus is that the movie did not live up to its potential – and RZA is a better director than he his actor.

If you thought that RZA showed potential as a filmmaker, you may be in luck. Impact Online suggests that Blu-ray, DVD, and On Demand sales on the movie have been solid, despite a poor performance in theaters. This has re-ignited Universal Pictures’ hopes for a sequel, which the ending of the first film certainly left room for. However, it’s not yet known whether The Man With the Iron Fists 2 would be a theatrical or direct-to-DVD release. We’ll let you know as soon as we know!

    Come on guys this was one of the worst things I have ever seen that has attempted to be a Shaw Brother movie. RZA can’t act worth a crap, and the film had no impressive choreography or anything. It was unbearable, and it is really sad that this bastardization will continue with a sequel.

    I’ll take a sequel, only if RZA directs. No acting please. His performance was shameful enough.

    I enjoyed parts of The Man With the Iron Fists. Yes RZA’s acting was bad as well as the CGI that was used. Being a Tarantino produced film, I expected a more natural look or at least no CGI. The parts I did like won me over more than the bad. The fight scene with the Geminis was nice. Yet sadly so many scenes had me asking “Where are the Martial Arts?”. For a Shaw Bros. inspired film it looked the part but failed in what mattered most. I would love to see a directors cut though. Maybe the fight scenes would not so be choppy and the more ramatic moments would feel more fleshed out. When you have a Martial Arts movie and the best thing you can say about it is how much you enjoyed the scenes with Russel Crowe. Your already in trouble.

    It was a good attempt at re making a Shaw brother movie
