RZA presents the trailer for Wu-Tang vs. The Golden Phoenix

Jun. 29, 2010by: Mike Sampson

This RZA film is most certainly not the $20 million budgeted Universal-backed kung-fu project THE MAN WITH THE IRON FISTS. That film, which RZA co-wrote with Eli Roth, is still in the works but what we have here is a trailer for another RZA kung-fu film, the highly independent WU-TANG VS. THE GOLDEN PHOENIX. What exactly is going on here? It looks like RZA simply wanted to try his hand at directing a kung-fu flick and that's exactly what he did.

It's a pretty neat little trailer filled with all the usual vintage kung-fu flourishes that you'd expect but how will it translate into a feature film? Or maybe the better question is whether it will ever translate into a feature film. There's no release date announced so no idea if/when GOLDEN PHOENIX will ever see the light of day on DVD. But for now it's at least good practice for when IRON FISTS finally gets into production. Check out the trailer below.

Might be a good movie.

They could make good movies. Wu Tang has a big universe.

If you're not Wu...

Well then you're not Wu and I distinctly dislike you.

I hate to say it but. . .

as much as I love RZA and the Clan, it looks like he needs to pay more attention where to put his camera. The flick looks fun, but I hope it's better than the trailer.

I agree. That was crap. and not crap in a kitschy-low budget-b movie-crap but cool way. I've seen college students do a better job of lampooning vintage kung-fu movies.

RZA, GZA, Method Man, Inspectah Deck, Ghostface Killa, ODB, Raekwon, U GOD, and Masta Killa. Don't ever get me started on the subject of old school east coast hip hop. I'll never shutup.

If the RZA's screenwriting abilities are anywhere near his ability to produce a movie score, then I think this has an awesome chance.

You can see RZA's love all over this. Kung Fu and electric guitar.

Now all we need is a Raekwon/Ghostface mafia movie or a Gza sci-fi chess movie

Sweet.

I'm a fan of RZA and I think this is pretty cool. I'm looking forward to all the projects mentioned in the article and I really think RZA has some future in film as well as continuing his prominent music career. As for original 9 Wu-Tang, I used to know but I can't remember now. But I do know one of my most coveted t-shirts for being a white guy, is my Wu-Tang Clan one haha.
