RZA may have made a small fortune associating his rap group (Wu Tang Clan) with classic kung-fu movies... and I am sure he appreciates the genre, but none of that makes you a director...or an actor. RZA would have been better off completely handing the directorial reigns over to QT and letting someone with actual acting "talent" play the lead character. Despite having the greatest stars of kung-fu and some heavy hollywood hitters (Russel Crowe,Lucy Lu), the movie came off as pure drivel..bad editing and terrible cinematography (the film was dark, and you could barely make out any of the action due to severe motion blur) are what you'll get going to see this film. RZA had all the right ingredients to make a killer film but he wasted the oppurtunity to feed his ego. this movie is a piece of garbage...you've been warned.
