Aliens appear at the UN and invite Earth to join the Galactic Federation, there is a catch though, Earth has one year to send a team of it's best fighters to represent the palnet in an unarmed combat tournament. The fate of the Earth depends on the tournaments outcome. Written by
Two years ago there had never been a British Martial feature film, now there are several completed and others soon to be completed. We always had world class fighters, who have been winning and bringing back the medals in nearly ever discipline at the hightest levels. Now with the explosion in production of martial arts films and reality tounrament and combat TV shows in Britian, the UK has now become the centre of attention and taken a giant leap onto the world stage as a new hotbed of talent, before and behind the camera, which has enabled the producers of F.I.S.T. to fully realize the script's full potential. Without that firm competitve base and the national explosion of UK production F.I.S.T. would never have had to really push the envelope, because without the competition, we really would not have been challenged and driven to making the truly wild and original all action battle fest that has gestated and mutated over the years of production into what has become F.I.S.T. A truly national effort for which we are truly thankful. See more »
Saw an add on shooters saying that you can download from Amazon Unboxed, bit of a bizarre way to finally release this film but whatever, I've been wating for this one for some time now and for the £1 quid rental price I thought I'd risk it for a biscuit, ncie one. Starts a bit weird and confusing but soon get's into to it, well lots of attractive women, tons of fight sequences, in dozens of different disciplines, lots count after twenty. Well the acting ranges form passable to VG considering the directors script leaves the actors a bit of a challenge but, on the whole a passable effort and a very pleasant surprise for a UK MA film, along with Steve Lawson's The Silencer this is another that stands out from the crowd of medium to low budget efforts produced in the UK over the last five years or so that are mostly violent cheap and nasty efforts. Thought Silvio was great but yet again he really needs more acting roles if he's ever really going to move up to the next level. Alexander was very convincing, would have liked to have seen more of the bed scene with ET but then again who wouldn't. Tons of action and the most looney build-up for a scene fight since The Good the Bad and the Ugly, re the tennis courts which ends like most fight in real life, over in seconds.On the whole well worth the wait, more please.
