Did You Know?


When Bone (Michael Jai White) reveals his intentions to Angela, she asks if he's her "White Knight." Bone jokingly exclaims, "I don't know about... 'White' Knight." This of course, references the fact that Bone is Black; making him her "Dark Knight." One year prior to making this film, Michael Jai White portrayed the Mob boss Gambol in the film "Dark Knight."

Michael Jai White IS The Movie
13 September 2009 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

What can you say? 'Blood and Bone' is a pleasant martial arts/drama surprise that handles us a pretty enjoyable ride during it's 90 minutes and a Michael Jai White in top form.

Directed by the one who wrote the infamous failure that was 'Dragon Ball Evolution', Ben Ramsey, the movie tells us the story of Isaiah Bone, an ex-con that takes the world of underground fighting by storm, in order to keep a promise to his late friend in prison.

With an interesting plot that explores the martial arts world combined with the underground fighting game and a 'surprise effect' sustained until the last twenty minutes of the film, Ramsey achieves to maintain the spectator on his chair until the end of the movie, mixing action and drama.

The fighting scenes are awesome, and not only Michael Jai White knows how to act, knows how to fight: he kicks ass (and also Van Damme's and Segal's ass too).

This is one of the best low budget action movies you can possibly watch in your life and if you're a martial arts fan then this will serve you well. It has excellent underground fighting matches that will blow you away. Michael Jai White rocks, and he IS the movie.
