In essence, this Captain America of the East was supposed to be big-budget action blockbuster spectacle, weighty enough to warrant a two-parter release not unlike 'Red Cliff'.Yet after all that hype, 'Iceman' is worse than 'The Monkey King' and almost as bad as 'Special ID'.
The problem is that it is almost entirely derivative of *insert name of any gangster/crime movie of the past 30 years here*.
