Wu Tang Clan’s RZA and Eli Roth bring us a story about loads of crazy ninja people trying to find some gold or something. It isn’t important.
The first first hour is just one long awesome fight scene. Russell Crowe is swanning round sleeping with prostitutes and cutting people open every now and again, he is British for some reason. Then it all goes slightly wrong when they make the mistake of trying to flesh out the ridiculous and overly complicated plot and it gets a bit dull. They pull it together for the final twenty minutes of fight sequences though and it all ends in a satisfactory, heads being punched off bodies, kind of way. If you wanted that scene in Kill Bill where the bride fights the crazy 88’s to go on for an hour and forty seven minutes then this is the film for you.
