On the other hand, having had the opportunity to view the trailer as suggested and not filmed on a camera someone crammed up their butt, I look forward to the film for the most part...just not the elements I hoped it would have. I just don't think this is the Shaw Brothers/golden era kung fu homage I wanted. It looks more "House of Flying Daggers" and less "Daggers 8."

I think it looks interesting, there's a lot of cool gadget-like weaponary going in that trailer, just like you'll find in some classic Shaw bros. or Taiwanese swordplay flicks.

Think lots of people went into the movie with the wrong expectations, yeah RZA is a big fan of the classic work. But he already stated in interviews that this flick was going to be less Shaw Bros. and more Once Upon a Time in China (ok i don't really see it in here as well, but tbh I don't care that much about OUATIC... so i'm quite satisfied at what I see here).

But personally I can't wait to see this flick.

I just realized how similar the setup of this flick is with "The kid with the golden arm". A transport of gold is the target for several clans, duo's and individuals (ok in kid with golden arms only has gang assaulting the cargo). I see a bit of an amalgation of several venom flicks in MWTIF. Life's gamble, crippled avengers as well next to KWTGA. The title also sounds similar to The kid with the golden arm.

and instead of the awesome talent of the venoms we have CGI, special effects and Hollywood stars
