Man of Iron
Man of Iron was positioned as something of a follow-up to Boxer From Shantung, the rise-and-fall story of Ma Yung Chen and it reunites the directors and some of the cast in a similar but much slighter tale of a lesser gangster's rise and fall in Shanghai. While the opening narration specifically recalls the events and tragic conclusion of BOXER, this one is set 20 years later in the same section of Shanghai but otherwise has nothing to do with the events or characters of the previous film.

(ca) wrote: An HBO TV movie that goes out of its way to keep its tongue firmly in cheek. Anthony Edwards of ER fame is a naive schoolteacher Billy Ray, who takes to heart the dime store novels, takes it upon himself to rescue a female student who was kidnapped by a Mexican bandito. Along the way, he is aided by (the look of his tattered coat) a former buffalo soldier named Van Leek whose horse is so skittish that he has to put cotton in its ears anytime a gun goes off. Van Leek helps Billy Ray put together a crack(ed) team of gunfighters, including John Glover (an affable, hammish preacher), Joe Pantoliano (as the writer Billy Ray admires, looking for some redemption himself) and Miguel Sandoval (a three fingered dynamite man who shares a vitriolic friendship with Glover). It's a fun, bloody, and enjoyable western comedy.

(gb) wrote: a fun sequel. retains the charm of the first film. now i have to hunt down the other hill/spencer movies. (and i have to say these are westerns that are crying out to be remade with a modern action sensibility - though i guess the chan/wilson westerns come close.)
(jp) wrote: If only they were able to keep the ending Hepburn and director George Stevens had wanted, Alice not winning the man and having to go out and fend for herself in the world. Sure it's not romantic and isn't the cookie cutter happy ending such films were used to but it would have made one hell of an ending. Hepburn plays the subdued and doughy eyed Alice Adams who must rise above her family's financial situation to bag herself a man, competing with the likes of other young women who come from families of wealth and privilege. Classic comedic scene at the dinner table makes this an entrancing oldie.
(au) wrote: It doesn't start nearly as solidly as the first, because the whole first act isn't great. It's sad how little the villain is in this, and how him and Holmes are together even less! But he is a good villain. The action is still good, and it still has laughs, but I'm not sure if there's more or less of both, and if it feels like there's not enough or too much. But the train scene is badass! Robert Downey Jr and Jude Law still give good performances, and their characters are still good. The writing was worse, from a duo that haven't done anything good. They should have kept the writers of the first, but just not had all four. It's also really long. It's a minute different in length from the first, but at least the first felt shorter than this. Guy Ritchie seemed to direct fine, but with as much bad stuff as there is, it's hard to tell.
