Beat Down indeed!
2 December 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

After seeing 1 or two minutes of it during commercials, I finally decided to watch the whole film. This Canadian movie is at least rolling on, no dull moments. Good acting by the young Marthe Bernard and Rob Wells as her father, and Janet Kidder in particular. In general the film includes some unsavoury and physically ugly characters, spending their lives in dark clubs, drab motel rooms, street alleys without any trees, and loud arenas. I feel sorry for the actors who had to use so much foul language. Not knowing anything about this kind of wrestling....it seems as if the fighting manner has no rules whatsoever. It is hard to understand why people wish to trample upon others and cause tremendous pain. It is also quite surprising that the public fills the arena and shouts their hearts out. I suppose it is based on the true life of some people in this country. Is this way of life really Canadian? Or was it done as a film that can be sold outside Canada? I wish I could have given it only 6 1/2 points. I am leaving it at 7 simply for the good acting.
