This is a classic story wrapped in a butt load of action. The story grips you from start to finish and the action inside would make you go WHOAAAA all the way through. batista was just amazing as the brass guy and RZA himself was just WOWWWW in the blacksmith role. Russle Crowe as the englishmen was just amazing and the chinese actors are the lion clan was just awesome. This is a must see for any fan of quinten tartantino work because even though he dident direct it he still did an amazing job working with RZA on it.
