Many have known the RZA as a dope producer of the World Re-known Wu-Tang Clan. But this time he makes his full lenght feature film debut with: “The Man With The Iron Fists” After viewing the trailer, I was in total awe and hyped as many of you know “Mista Official” aka “Saiyanknight87” . I’m an avid watcher of many martials arts and anime film adaptations. I’m always down for a good old action martials arts movie. At any rate though enough about my personal movie preferences check out the trailer below.
The movie is set to be in feudal China, the story follows a blacksmith (RZA) who is forced to come to the defense of his fellow villagers. The cast is composed of Russell Crow, Cung Le as Bronze Lion, Lucy Liu as Madame Blossom, Byron Mann as Silver Lion, RZA, Rick Yune as Zen Yi, David Bautista as Brass Body, Jamie Chung as Lady Silk, Pam Grier, and Jin Au-Yeung as Chan. This seems as if it will be an awesome cast indeed. I”m looking forward to seeing Bautisa and Lucy Liu in the big screen as I hope this movie is aimed to deliver indeed!!!
Unlike their predecessors, who each released about an album a year, Master P and the Wu-Tang Clan dominated the mid to late 1990s with a hailstorm of discs that saturated the rap marketplace. RZA, the Wu's über-producer, added to the storm with Bobby Digital in Stereo, the soundtrack for a straight-to-video film directed, produced, and written by RZA under the alter ego Bobby Digital. Whether he's able to compete with Master P on the cinematic front remains to be seen, but the project surely confirms RZA's mastery of the production studio and of the hip-hop domain in general. Without sounding too threatening or gangsta, RZA--er, Digital--lays down street-lethal beats and rhythms that resonate with a futuristic cyberpunk theme. And while the songs are fairly free of melody, there are plenty of atmospheric keyboard noises, sound effects, and samples to keep things pumping. --Jon Wiederhorn
