I really wanted to like this film. It took me months to track down but I finally got it from Amazon (It was 'out of stock' for months). I wish I hadn't. As a practitioner of BJJ I was hoping for some inspirational rolling but the BJJ was only a small part of the film. Neither documentary nor fiction, it teeters across the line of both and achieves the benefits of neither. There are long periods of nothing at all (watching Candy walk along the street, for example). Larry himself is outstanding, the other characters less so, and when Danny talks about the philosophy of Jiu-jitsu, it jars with his drug-taking, alcoholic binges. The police detective was obnoxious.

A real shame.

Continuity error - Larry and Darren are rolling with Larry wearing his blue belt long before he was awarded it.
