Presented by Quentin Tarantino, the blood-soaked, bone-snapping action-adventure The Man With The Iron Fists is out now, having been released on Limited Edition Blu-ray Steelbook, Blu-ray and DVD two days ago, on 1st April 2013.

The Man with the Iron Fists2

Inspired by the kung-fu classics of the 1970s and 80s as interpreted by Tarantino’s long time collaborators RZA (Wu Tang Clan) and Eli Roth (Hostel), The Man With The Iron Fists features a kick ass cast including Lucy Liu (Kill Bill), Russell Crowe (Gladiator) and WWF’s Dave Bautista – as well as FAULT Issue 13 star Byron Mann. The film tells the epic story of warriors, assassins and a lone outsider hero in nineteenth-century China who must unite to destroy a traitor in their midst who would lay waste to them all for the sake of a chest of gold bullions.

The Man with the Iron Fists1

Isolated in rural Jungle Village, the town’s blacksmith (RZA) works tirelessly supplying the warring local clans with weaponry  in order to pay for his and his lover’s (Jamie Chung, Sucker Punch) passage out of the desolate region. The delicate peace of the area is thrown into disarray by the revolt of the local Lion clan’s second in command, Silver Lion  (played to pantomime perfection by Mann), and the murder of his superior, Gold Lion, sets in motion a treacherous and deadly chain of events. The violence escalates to a whole new level and the town is inundated by dangerous strangers, including the infamous Brass Body (Bautista), foreigner Jack Knife (Crowe) and the deadly Poison Dagger – all eager to join the fight and lay their hands on the governor’s gold.

The film features heavy martial arts fight sequences, a gritty, urban soundtrack featuring the Wu Tang Clan, Black Keys and Kanye West and gruesome special effects. The Blu-ray exclusive special features include an on-set featurette with RZA.
