The story Niko tells Scott about why he was unable to fight in the UFC is based on actor Bas Rutten own experiences. Shortly after beginning his career with UFC, while training for his third fight, he blew out his knee, as well as sustained other injuries, forcing him to retire. See more »
During the final fight scene with Ken Dietrick the end of Round two is crowned by Dietrick throwing a Haymaker into Scott's lower jaw. This knocks out Scott's mouth guard, you see the mouth guard fly out of his mouth, and land on the wire of the octagon, in the next shot you see it still hanging on the wire. Yet Scott has to hazily walk halfway across the octagon to retrieve his mouth guard from the floor. See more »
Here Comes the Boom is Kevin James latest film which sees him tackling the world of MMA. James a lifelong fan of MMA trained in mix martial arts for this role and it is evident in his performance as a teacher turned UFC fighter.(This being the first film with official UFC licensing.
This film is aimed at the same demographic as those who enjoyed Chuck and Larry or King of Queens, its an interesting watch with enough depth to keep you watching. Though this film has a few good laughs and a steady if a somewhat predictable story line its main flaw is attention to detail with the minor characters that make the story.
Overall it is worth a watch but don't expect to see it on any all time great lists. The best is yet to come from Kevin James and I am sure we will see it from him in the future.
