The Man With The Irons Fists movie scene

RZA (r.) comes up against a pretty solid opponent in The Man With The Irons Fists.

“Presented” by Quentin Tarantino, The Man With the Iron Fists is a 2012 action adventure film inspired by classic martial arts movies, directed by and starring RZA (TV’s Californication), the founding member of the Wu-Tang Clan who’s appeared in some 20 films and is now doing some serious branching out into movie business.

In nineteenth century feudal China, a band of warriors, brawlers, assassins, and a rogue British soldier are on the hunt for a fabled treasure of gold. They descend upon a village, where a humble blacksmith (RZA) looks to defend himself and his fellow villagers by any means necessary.

Co-written by RZA and Eli Roth (Piranha), The Man With the Iron Fists also features Russell Crowe (Robin Hood), Lucy Liu (Kill Bill Vol. 1), David Bautista (Wrong Side of Town), Jamie Chung (Sucker Punch) and Rick Yune.

Opening on some 1800 screens in U.S. theaters in November, 2012, the film grossed $15.6 million at the box office and some positive critical nods from fans of fantastical kung fu fighting.

The Blu-ray and DVD editions of The Man With the Iron Fists will feature an “Unrated Extended Edition” of the film which clocks in at 108 minutes (12 minutes longer than the R-rated theatrical cut).

Along with Universal’s branded Blu-ray/Digital functions, the Blu-ray and DVD will includes the following features:

  • “A Look Inside The Man With the Iron Fists
  • “A Path to the East”
  • “On the Set with RZA”
