Oh dear!, 22 March 2013
Author: richieandsam


There really is not a lot positive I can say about this movie. It was terrible.

The story was bad, the acting was worst and the fighting scenes were comical.

It was about a champion MMA fighter who sees a girl in a club that he likes. She introduces him to a bloke who runs an illegal cage fighting tournament. This tournament is dangerous and people can get seriously injured or even die. The movie then becomes a revenge movie as the owner of this company kills one of his friends in a fight and beats up his girlfriend and a few other women.

I have not seen acting this bad for a long time. Not one person in the film was convincing as their character. All completely square and boring. Although there is one guy in the film that has a really fake accent... it is funny. He made me laugh a few times in the movie.

The fighting scenes were worst than watching professional wrestling. WWE is more realistic. haha

What makes me laugh is on the front cover of the DVD, the biggest pictures is of Quinton 'Rampage' Jackson... he is int he movie for about 2 minutes... he has one bad street fight scene and that's him done for the whole movie. I am surprised anyone hired him after this.

There is nothing but bad acting, bad fighting and sex through the whole film!

I will give this 3 out of 10.

The tag line on the poster says:


it should say on the end of that... AND THEIR LAST!
