THE MAN WITH THE IRON FISTS is an action film set in 19th century China in which a town becomes the setting for a battle to the death incited by revenge and the prospect of a fortune in gold. It is rated 18 for strong bloody violence. This is an extended version of the feature, containing material that was not present in the version released in cinemas.

The film is a modern take on the Hong Kong action films of the past and the violence is presented in a stylised and choreographed manner. The fighting scenes, in which there is a focus on bladed weapons, are sustained and feature an emphasis on copious bloodshed. There is also some dwelling on the infliction of pain and injury, for example in a scene in which a captive man's arms are cut off with a sword that has been heated in a blacksmith's furnace.

The film also contains strong sex references, brief drug use and strong language. Words such as 'nigga' or 'nigger' occur in hip-hop songs on the film's soundtrack, but when they are used in dialogue they are not endorsed.

No-one younger than 18 may see an 18 rated film in the cinema. No-one younger that 18 may rent or buy an 18 rated video or DVD.
