Synopsis by Mark Deming
New York hip-hop crew Wu-Tang Clan are famous for their love of vintage martial arts movies, and now Wu-Tang rapper Cappadonna has become the star of a '70s kung-fu flick thanks to the magic of dubbing. Cappadonna's Iron Fist Pillage finds the hero, a combination rapper and spiritual master, dropping into a deep sleep after smoking some especially potent weed. As Cappadonna slips into dreamland, he imagines that he's become the hero of an old-school chop socky picture, with the incongruous voices of himself and his friends coming from the mouths of the movie's Asian cast, often with comic effect. Cappadonna is framed for the murder of Sweets, the leader of a gang of rival warriors, and when he's forced to leave, his own crew falls apart without his leadership. After a year, Cappadonna returns to restore his crew to its former glory, but discovers it's an uphill battle. Many of his friends are drunks or in jail, while his girlfriend has become a streetwalker. Cappadonna's Iron Fist Pillage also features the voices of Jamie Summers, Shawn Wigs, Squsih Stalinsky, and Hideo Seaver.
