Michael 'Gengis' Jai White
4 October 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am not going a great rating, because this could have been better. Don't expect high end acting, because there is just two names worth mentioning - Michael and Eamonn Walker. The other cast of full of MMA fighters. So, just expect fight. It is there. Eammonn is very good as James. The movie's plot has lot of holes. They could have devoted more time to the relationship between Danny and Bone, but they didn't and the reasoning doesn't seem personal.

Michael Jai must be cast in some big budget action movie... He's a next JCVD.

Make no mistake, this ain't undisputed 2. Undisputed 2 just felt right. But this ain't bad at all. Better than most action flicks. I would see this movie more many of the high end bull-crap movie these days.
