Great combination of styles
30 June 2014 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Saw this film at the Shanghai International Film Festival and loved it. I didn't know much about GSP nor am I an UFC fan, but I thought the film was really well produced and was able to mix animation, UFC paper-view footage, and doco/interview footage really well.

I think the subject of having a very soft, kind person like GSP who is one of the best mixed martial arts fighter and brutal in the ring is a great contrast and great concept for a film.

Much like Arnold Schwarzenegger in Pumped, you really get to understand how such a physical sport is not only won by physicality but by the ability to mentally overcome your component.

Definitely worth watching!
