Iron Fist Pillage Movie Review

In the tradition of What's Up, Tiger Lily? and now Kung Pow: Enter the Fist, Iron Fist Pillage takes an old kung fu flick (the identity of which I can't find anywhere) and re-dubs it, this time in "Wu-Tang Clan style" by Clan member Cappadonna in the lead role.

Result: Original monologues about honor and family are replaced with speeches about blunts and hoes. This is gag-worthy enough to make for a reasonably fun party movie, but even though it's only 90 minutes long, the joke wears thin. Of course, this is a common problem for these kind of movies -- and even Woody Allen can't sustain the joke for more than an hour. In Pillage, the original movie's story is actually left intact as much as I can tell -- a loner takes the rap for the murder of his mentor, goes on the run, and when he returns a year later finds that his village has gone all to hell, because the real killer has taken over. Many fights ensue.

Cappadonna and his crew don't do much with the fighting, but some of the overdubbing is hysterical during the slow scenes. I'm partial to the way the demure Chinese ladies have been turned into utter sluts, but my favorite bit has to be one of the bad guy's henchmen, who has been reinvented as an android. Makes you wonder what they were smoking...

Don't answer that.
