Good fighting scenes,but nothing more.
28 September 2001 | by (Fredrikstad,Norway) – See all my reviews

This movie is all about cage fighting. Cage fighting is two martial arts experts being locked in a cage and fight to one of them is dead.(sometimes they use weapons like swords,spears etc)

You dont watch a movie like this for nothing else than cool fighting scenes,because it has almost no plot and the acting sucks. But in this movie the fighting scenes is especially good,and it shows of many different fighting styles.

The movie contains some really strong scenes of violence and gore,what did you expect,it is about men who kill each other.

If you like martial arts movies for the fighting scenes,then you will love this one.
