RZA movie — Golden Phoenix
Speaking of the RZA, he just released the trailer to his long-rumored feature film Wu Tang vs the Golden Pheonix. The rapper hopes that the film will prove to himself and Hollywood that he could be taken seriously as a director.

Why the **** is RZA still using Shaw-Brothers era special effects?
Similar to the vast majority of WU Tang Clan members...you will only enjoy this movie is you smoke dust.

It's definitely an homage, similar to Grindhouse, but even many of the Shaw Bros movies looked better!

I mean, I SEE what he's doing there, but like you say, Grindhouse and Black Dynamite did it better.
Rivington, start posting on Sociocide, damn you.

I have no words....As much of a Wu fan I had been. I would not watch it for free.......... I'm actually mad I saw the preview"Its not important to be strong, its just important not to be weak."

Idk, kinda looks like the ****, to me. I mean, in a college film project kind of way. Looked real enough (old SB style) that at first I thought they might be using old footage. And damn, is RZA that young? Looks young, man.

I've been into Shaw Brothers stuff since I was little and I'm on the fence about this.
At certain moments it looked almost EXACTLY like an old Shaw Brothers flick. Then I noticed the voice was in perfect synch with the mouth movements. My disappointment started there.
Most of the backdrops are a big backyard probably behind the RZA's house. And why is he in his own movie, beyond fulfilling a boyhood fantasy? And what the hell is with the bad CG blood spurt at the end?
However, I'd consider watching it to see some dude get a spear stab to the crotch.
Ah, **** it. I'm gonna go watch Master of the Flying Guillotine again instead.
