Storyline

Bobby Delgado, undefeated MMA World Champion (of an elusive and clandestine underworld tournament of Mixed Martial Arts) is incarcerated for eight years after accidentally killing his opponent. During this period of purgatory, Bobby experiences a paranormal 'life changing' event that will dictate his future path to redemption. Infuriated by the financial loss and the death of his master fighter, Jarvis Sweet swears vengeance on Delgado and finds himself a new hitter in the form of Wade Bull, a vicious ex underworld enforcer with killing skills few men can match. Sweet and Mafia boss kingpin Sal Civelo, formulate a ruthless and provocative campaign aimed at putting Delgado back into the pit. As pressure builds and danger closes in, Bobby has to concoct a subtle mind game to confront his nemesis in an environment that he can control. What follows is a brutal...

Let down by poor acting
17 April 2010 | by See all my reviews

According to the box office link, this film cost $7000 to make. If true then the film makers should be applauded. Putting that to one side, this film becomes one of extremes. It goes from good to bad then back again which makes the overall viewing experience a frustrating one. Some of the acting is very good but this is overshadowed by several poor performances. The sidekick character is one noticeable culprit, as is the love interest. The fights also suffer from extremes. The first brawl and the villain's back alley fight against three toughs are fast and exciting, but unfortunately when it really counts, the standard is sub par. The fight where the leading man kills his opponent and his final confrontation with the villain are exceptionally weak and these are the fights which should have been the strongest. Overall, the film is a mish mash of ideas that lack consistency. The bizarre narration is poorly written and leaves the viewer scratching his head while many of the confrontational scenes work quite well. The leading man is physically awesome but one dimensional, the bad guys are good as are some of the smaller character parts. Where this film stands out though is in the camera direction and editing. With such a low budget, maybe my criticism is too harsh because there are big budget films out there that don't match up to this one. To wrap up, this film is good on a technical level but it's a shame that some of the on screen talent just weren't up to scratch.
