UFC Fight reviews and Martial Arts School Owners Agree
8 May 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As real as it gets... Real Fighters, Exceptional Full Contact choreography by the legendary Ernie Reyes, Sr. A compelling and meaningful storyline carried by wonderful performances. Ernie Reyes Jr. is awesome. UFC Fight considered the fights "Top Notch." Others give the film's story and direction a "Black Belt." Over 1600 martial arts school owners who screened the film in Orlando gave it great reviews. Won 'Best Picture" at the action on Film Festival... Finally, a martial arts movie made by martial artists, for martial artists... People who have seen it as crushed and streamlined download through pirate internet sites don't have a fair representation by which to criticize the picture or sound mix... Watch it legitimately on the big screen, then make your comments... True MMA fans, fighters, and Martial Artists love it, and that makes me proud of the incredible team that put this project together. Great Work!
