Storyline

Confessions of a Pit fighter is a character driven action film about regret, consequences and the triumph of the human spirit. Eddie Castillo is a quiet man. He has survived seven years of incarceration in the state pen and wants nothing more than to live out his life in relative tranquility. He moves in with you younger brother David who as a kid, idolized him. Castillo soon learns that the "tranquility" he was seeking is shattered by David getting involved in illegal underground fights, the same type of fights that coincidentally led Castillo to Prison. As much as Castillo tries to get David to go straight, he has to make his own way. David eventually gets killed in an underground fight and this sets Castillo on a collision course with destiny. Having no other choice, Castillo goes back into the underground fight game to find his brother's killer. Castillo sets out for revenge and in the process forsakes it for redemption. "From the day I was born I had to fight to survive. I fought... Written by Anonymous

Do not watch this pathetic excuse for a movie. Embarrassed to admit I viewed the part I did before puking at such filth and debauchery. A film with a gangster rapper in it should have been a clear warning. But my friend wanted to watch it. I rejected it immediately, but wanted to give it a chance. Pitiful. The Little Rascals TV show had better acting. Rocky had better fighting. But if you're studying to live on the streets, have intercourse with STD laden ugly tramps, and fight the rest of your life as a gangster...then here you go. Happy Birthday. I myself would rather swallow a live PIT VIPER than be subjected to this trash. Frankly, it would stink up a dump. Even spoiled milk and rotten eggs are more appealing.
