There is a alternate version done by Miramax, and was not released on DVD or Blu-ray, but obscure their own version because Miramax would thought that the public would criticize the English Adaptation of the film that Miramax's Version makes it a sequel, but the Miramax version is only available on Netflix & Lionsgate's YouTube Channel "LionsgateVOD (only for purchase).

Iron Monkey would not have been so bad if it had been subtitled instead of dubbed over, but it would still have been awful.
The fight scenes are crappy and everything else is unintentionally funny. The direction is...well... bad. Many things about this movie are BAD. The cinematography, if you can call it that, is choppy, crappy, uneven and fake. Most parts when they are trying to make it look like something is falling into place, it looks like they shot it falling (or CGI'd it) then shot a seperate cut with it in place. Really REALLY crappy movie.
This is one of the worst martial arts movies I have ever seen. It's not even funny, just painfully bad. I'll give it 2/10 just because some of the fight scenes were mediocre, not terrible.
