Sushi and a Movie Volume 4 – The Man With the Iron Fists

I really had high hopes for this movie. Kung fu! Quentin Tarantino! An interesting premise…but alas it was not to be. The movie was poorly written, acted, and executed on all levels. Had me and Bill been on a better wavelength, I think we would have both left about 25 minutes in. It was that bad. I’ve been trying to think of a worse movie over the past two days and I can’t. It’s not that I haven’t seen any bad movies; it’s just that it has been an extremely long time since I felt justified in walking out of one.

I don’t want to bash the movie too bad, but I will point out one thing that Bill brought up as we were leaving: the movie spends about 80% of the time in a brothel. You’d think they would at least show a boob or two. NOPE. Nothing. Not that it would have made it better, and I already saw plenty of gratuitous nudity when I watched Flight on Friday night. It just didn’t make a whole lot of sense. Of course, due to the asinine ratings we have in this country, they would have had to cut out some of the blood or fighting in order to include nudity as well. But still…

Avoid this movie in theaters. Wait until it is playing for free on cable or something. It is that bad, at least in my humble opinion. If you are a die hard kung fu movie fan, I suppose you might enjoy it. I went in expecting something much better and was severely disappointed. At least Lincoln will look super extra awesome in comparison to this crap.

Until next time…
