Fantastic
17 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Just a great "feel good" movie full of great MMA fight scenes. I'm so tired of the illegal underground fight movies that send out a negative message and giving MMA a bad rap. This movie has Rocky, and the Karate kid wrapped together providing the viewers with a pleasant experience. I enjoyed watching REAL MMA fighters like Frank Shamrock and Grey Maynard instead of actors act like fighters. Also good to see the training scenes filmed at the TAPOUT gym in Las Vegas. Ving Rhames, is classic as the gym owner and trainer and George Takei is alway fun to watch as he plays the villain running a corrupt made for TV fight show. John Savage was also a nice surprise as he plays the prison warden. Ernie Reyes is the movies hero who has to take on life's hurdles as he struggles with life, love and family. Great Job fellas, in my opinion this is a must see!
