The story of two men on different sides of a prison riot -- the inmate leading the rebellion and the young guard trapped in the revolt, who poses as a prisoner in a desperate attempt to survive the ordeal.
The youngest son of an alcoholic former boxer returns home, where he's trained by his father for competition in a mixed martial arts tournament - a path that puts the fighter on a collision corner with his older brother.
Michael Jai White is the new Jean-Claude Van Damme...
... though not in the field of karate... ;)
I decided to write this comment because I'm very thrilled about "Blood and Bone" and decided to give it 10 stars. Not that I haven't seen better acting performances and scripts before but this movie is just the ideal of BRILLIANT Sunday-movie-entertainment.
I think we've all been waiting for a replacement for the old kick-ass- actors like jean-claude van damme and jet li. We have it now, his name is Michael Jai White and in this movie he is a mean mother-F, an ex-con with a big heart and an attitude.
This movie is NOT bad acting like many fighting movies and the script is simple but its working.
I HARDLY RECOMMEND this movie because of it's high rate of entertainment.
By my reckon the only people being disappointed about this movie is people who are more in to the Hugh-Grant-is-running-around-in-pyjama- and-is-in-love-with-a-girl kind of movies. Not that there is anything wrong with that. :)
