The Man with the Iron Fists Film Trailer Review
If you're a fan of action, martial arts, beautiful women films, and a kick ass soundtrack then you might already got pretty hyped up with what The Man with the Iron Fists has to offer in this initial trailer. It is quite refreshing to see some Western or non-Asian characters in a martial arts film set in China. This freshness in concept along with the cool fight sequences, stunning visuals and musical scoring is what is this trailer showcased, but is it all too good to be true?
One thing that we can be sure is to never trust a film based on its trailers... well we can only hope. According to a information first featured in various movie-centric websites, "The first cut of the film was 4 hours long and RZA suggested splitting it into two films, but Roth disagreed and it was ultimately cut down to approximately 90 minutes." This does not bid well for the film. From four hours to just 90 minutes? Hopefully the editing is flawless, and they should for the people know about this blunder so the best the production team could do is to at least do a pretty darn good job to make up for it. I am not hoping for a convoluted story line nor a deeper meaning to life or any of those piece of somethings, this is an action film and they should at least live up to what the trailer has built now. Let's just hope that it is a great entertaining action flick.
