Marginally better then other MMA films with the stamp of approval of the fighting leagues
10 December 2009 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

MMA champion is roped into fighting in some underground matches.

Marginally better than other similar MMA movies made by Hector Echavarria in conjunction with the fighting leagues and starring the fighters themselves. The film mostly suffers from really poor acting since not only are many of the fighters non-actors, they are surrounded by poor actors in the supporting roles. It doesn't help that the film has the plot of almost every other MMA movie (Note to the producers and Mr Echavarria, please come up with something else in place of this one plot) nor does the production seem to have had any money spent on it, with the film style less creative then even the coverage of the fights on TV. (do I need to mention that that the fights are silly and terribly staged? I mean Echavarria sometimes stands there and waits to be attacked)

For my money I'd stay away from any film that's endorsed or connected to the various league and go with something like Red Canvas which is an actual movie, with real performances and exciting fights.
