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

A step up for Camacho
23 March 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Having seen a lot of Art Camacho's previous work it is to go without saying that they have been very subpar. These are due to low budgets, bad actors, and bad producing. Confessions of a Pit Fighter marks a high point in his career as I think a good showcase of his potential.

Confessions is packed with some stylish editing, very decent cinematography, and some good acting here and there. Most notably is Armand Assante as the bad guy, and surprisingly Flava Flav did a good job. Hector Echavarria was not too impressive as the lead, although his brother David held his own. I think it's safe to say that there is a surprise in David's friend Aldo, who does a very good and convincing job in his role. Definitely someone to look out for I'd say.

The biggest problem with Confessions is that some of the editing gets a little overdone and can be annoying, and that the fight scenes could have been a lot better. It's very hard when the fights have nothing to do with the environment, but they get a little boring and repetitive at times, regardless to say that some parts are very fun to watch. A kudos and job well done to Art Camacho, I think he is restoring faith in some viewers, and with some more touch ups in his directing skills I think he can really do something great in soon time. As well a thumbs up to R. Ellis Frazier for delivering a pretty good script, a first good attempt. Looking forward to seeing what these two can do in the future.
