IRON PROTECTOR REVIEWED
“Iron Protector” is a film that plays with Martial Arts story cliches, but tries to make Wuxia into something modern. If you can get past a modern guy being stuck defending a spoiled Princess, then you’re going to enjoy the film. The Iron Feet style allows for a ton of crowd scenes that features central spinning and jaws getting broken. In terms of actual acrobatics and choreography, hardcore Martial Arts film fans will find the material to be lacking. That being said, I found the film to be a great palate cleanser when compared to the heavier Kung-Fu movies I’ve been watching recently.
