Critic Review - McClatchy-Tribune News Service

(RZA) is a terrible actor, an incompetent narrator, a mediocre writer and (spatter) paint-by-numbers director.

I wouldn't worry about what these people have to say Mr. Moore. I'm honestly suprised they can even spell, given the state of American society.

Lmao. First of all RZA is something you can never be nor ever replicate. Roger Moore. What have you done with your life? Have you produced albums? Scored movies? Gotten parts to act in movies? No you didn't. Have you been asked to star in a movie or be apart of a music group or start your own music group of 9 members and be in control of the direction and production? No. Have you written 2 books? No. You just sit behind your computer jerking yourself because you didn't do something incredible with your life or take chances to go out there and get your own. It's one thing to say you didn't like the movie or cared for it, but it's disrespectful and wrong to say RZA is a terrible actor or incompetent. Because when a person is a millionaire, and has millions of fans, toured around the world multiple times, what does your review or negativity words actually mean? Now have a good time sucking and swallowing the truth.

Thanks for bringing up a whole bunch of irrelevant crap that has nothing to do with the quality of the film. You sure proved Roger Moore wrong.

"it's one thing to say you didn't like the movie... but it's disrespectful and wrong to say RZA is a terrible actor or incompetent"

Um... why is this guy reading reviews? If someone reviews a movie and they found an actor bad... isn't it their job to then say... Hey, this guy wasn't very good, he kind of dragged the whole thing down.

And I gotta love "because when a person is a millionaire, and has millions of fans, toured around the world multiple times, what does your review or negativity words actually mean?" It means this millionaire who has fans and has flown places made a crappy movie and he did really bad in it. That's what it means. Also, you better vote for Romney... after all, he's rich.... so by your standard he's done more than you so you could NEVER have anything negative to say.

It's his job to say when an actor is bad you fucking moron. Also, stop with the "well what have you made argument", it's cliched and fucking annoying, if I don't have a right to say it's bad because I have never made anything, what right do you have to say it's good, dumbass.

If you don't understand Wu or their fascination with terrible Kung-Fu movies, you shouldn't be allowed to watch this film. Now sit the fuck down and let the fans of hip-hop and its culture enjoy the film please.

Just to add on to this "His N-word and F-bomb laced music ?? he participated in three songs on the soundtrack ?? we'll leave to others to parse. But as a movie maker, he's strictly a non-starter."

Now all is clear to me. Art is wasted on you.

That's the problem with this review. It's more than just a bunch of RZA fanboys that are upset because he said something negative - the reviewer never justifies his criticism. His only attempts to do so come off as ignorant at best and bigoted at worse.

For example, why is RZA an incompetent narrator? Big claim, but the only explanation: "He's too modern, too street. Reading his own narration, he sounds like a rapper reading his favorite Chinese folk tale."

Oh, so you think his narration failed because he sounds too much like a street rapper? This isn't Downton Abbey. Even people without a polished voice or accent are allowed to have a story to tell. Get over your bigotry, Moore.

He says it's Russell Crowe's worst performance, ever. He doesn't say why. He just proclaims it as if his word was infallible. Although, I wonder if he's ever seen Love in Limbo.

Exactly. A good critic is unbiased and learned in many different views and forms of art. This man sounds like my (very Texan) next door neighbor.

"This damn rap music, ruinin' my damn childrens' ears.."

Keep nit-picking artistic subjectivity, maybe it will magically drag the shitty critical reception of this film out of the gutter and everybody will suddenly "get it". Roger wasn't specific enough for you? Too bad. His job is to critique movies and this one failed to deliver. Just admit you're mad this guy and pretty much everyone else crapped all over your precious fanboy movie.

This movie is not good. At all. The narrative is bad, the acting is cringeworthy, and it's not even fun in an awesomely bad way. This movie blaringly proves - RZA should just stick to music.
