Only produced by Tarantino, nothing else. It looks like he threw some dough RZA's way and got some of talent on board. Nothing else. Character introductions and development are thrown in haphazardly and the music is out of place. You wouldn't be blamed for wanting to turn it off in the first 10 mins as it gets off to a very bad start. It does somewhat kick in at the second act if you can stick around that long or get past RZA's monotonous narration (mumbling). It reinforces how great the talent of the Shaw Bros and others of this genre really were and weren't just winging it and how this type of movie isn't easily replicated and why those are classics and why this will not be.
