The Man with the Iron Fists 2 Review

Synopsis:

When a stranger, Thaddeus, is found badly wounded near the village, miner Li Kung and his wife Ah Ni offer him refuge...

The Man with the Iron Fists 2 (2015) is an American action martial arts movie that is 90 minutes long. The Man with the Iron Fists 2 (2015) was edited by Radu Ion team and Chuck Norris, which made the fight scenes pretty nice. The movie is available on Blu-ray by Universal Studios. Director Roel Reiné (Death Race 2 (2010), Race: Inferno (2012), The Delivery (1999), Admiral (2015)) did an okay job with this movie. I think Chuck Norris made a huge difference in this movie with the fighting scenes that helped action fans to enjoy it.

I love the concept of the movie and the fact that it was set in a small Asian village in the Wuji mountains. The legend about the “golden nectar” which is a form of “chi” was found the mountain’s well and was not treated well/abused. The golden nectar will give immortality to anyone that drinks it. The command of Abbott and his Gemini Killers punished Lord Pi (Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa - Hachi: A Dog’s Tale (2009), Planet of the Apes (2001), Mortal Kombat (1995), Pearl Harbor (2001)) for abusing the nectar by sentencing him to punishment for his entire life.

Fast forward several years later in the Nineteenth century, we meet Master Ho (Carl Ng - Point of Entry (2010), New Police Story (2004), The Viral Factor (2012), Boarding Gate (2007)) who has taken control of the Si Fu village. Master Ho is making the small town hard to live in. Master Ho runs the town with his clan and kills anyone that does not listen to him or do what they are suppose to in his mine. The workers/miners are secretly working together with LI Kung (Dustin Nguyen - 21 Jump Street (1987), 22 Jump Street (2014), V.I.P. (1998), Game of Assassins (2013)) to overthrow Master Ho. The miners can challenge Master Ho to a duel in a ring but the all the miners that do so, dies with the help of Master Ho clan. Mayor Zhang (Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa) is a handicap and obeys Master Ho.

Kung reawakens his past and transforms into a deadly warrior Thaddeus (RZA - Django Unchained (2012), Pacific Rim (2013), Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai (1999), Blade: Trinity (2004)) is a skilled blacksmith that was out at sea. He was attacked out at sea and returned to his small village where Li Kung allowed him to stay with him. Thaddeus wants to stay peaceful and does not want any enemies, so he covered his iron fists with gauze to keep all eyes off of it. Li Kung talked Thaddeus into making the miners tools more effectively into a weapon so they can win the battle in overthrowing Master Ho. We soon saw Li Kung transformed himself from being peaceful to a deadly warrior. A man has to do what he has to in order to protect his family and village - right?

I was in total awww when the beautiful sceneries of Thailand were shown. The movie was filled with intense fight scenes that fans of action movies will indulge in. The actors did a good job with their respective parts, and their acting was convincing. I cannot get over the sceneries and the sets - that is all I can think about when writing this review.
