The best

Shaw Broth­ers kung- fu movies – which rap­per RZA con­tin­ues to homage here – have com­pelling nar­ra­tives en­hanced by well- choreographed fights.

Sadly, this plot – RZA’s iron- fisted man ar­rives in a min­ing vil­lage ruled by a cruel tyrant – is as bor­ing as the badly- shot and choppy fights that oc­ca­sion­ally break it up. At least the first film had Rus­sell Crowe gulp­ing down scenery, as well as a pre- Guardians Dave Bautista. Here, even RZA’s barely a sup­port­ing player, with the most fa­mous face be­long­ing to the bloke who played the bad­die in Mor­tal Kom­bat. Kom­bat is ac­tu­ally ref­er­enced, but that’s not enough to dis­tract from the sheer dull­ness of this DTV snorefest.

Com­men­tary; Mak­ing Of; deleted scenes. Sam Ashurst
