Bloodsport Dutch Style? No, much better!
27 October 1998 | by (Haarlem, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I have had the pleasure of seeing this beauty in the sneak preview. The movie depicts a future where people care even less about each other and life in general than they do know. The government's policy towards euthanasia and the public's demand for extreme fights result in a cage fight tournament in which sentenced criminals can choose to participate, brought to the public by a very commercial sports broadcast. The movie has got it all, action, humour and even the one ingredient no Dutch movie can't seem to do without: sex. Strangely this movie seems to have gone straight to video.
