I still can't understand why besides cashing on a classic would anyone remake this movie.
This was painful to watch( not as much as fight valley but close ) were do I start with this turd. The acting was from passable to bad a lot of MMA fighters in this movie that surely they can fight but sure as hell cant act Saint Pierr was made a drunk with hopes on being a great fighter Caín Velazques was there as random opponent who JCVD knocks out easy ,Gina Carano was completely wasted as she is well know for action rolls in movies not to pretend to be a " Don King" type of promoter ,the only reason they were in this movie Is to look more " legit" as you can recognize your favorite MMA stars struggling at acting , Lui the force romantic interest is completely useless and she supposed to be a tough cop , both Eric and Kurt have zero chemistry, the original establish that perfectly but here we get two flash backs and we are to Believe they have an unbreakable bond and Eric agrees to an illegal fight with no rules in a country his never been to and have an underground fight against a guy who out weights him that seems as a smart move coming from a legit fighter go fight a living legend with no cameras or sponsors with a local crowd who may probably tweet about it later.Tong Po played by Batidta fills so out of character as they don't hide he Is not Thai( i know the original Tong Po Is not Thai either but at least Qissi make up was believable of sorts) the biggest disappointment is the man himself JCVD how did he let one of his biggest hits get this kind of treatment are you that desperate for a paycheck?
Kurt Sloan is a generic good guy that's been reused so many times it really gets old making Sasha Mitchell a way better option in the painful sequel the original had...at least we got the original Tong Po in the second one the fourth one wow who the hell was that ( see the fourth as we get a Tong Po in party shirts organizing an underground tournament to the death in his Villa and get tossed around by Mitchell), no one I mean no one shines here the editing helps at that as it was cut by an amateur that clearly got help from a book for dummies. Like i said at the beginning there Is no legitimate reason to remake this film other than cash a quick check i felt uninterested and frankly didn't care about any character . This Is a disgrace its feels cheap and recycling a good movie Is an insult to anyone who grew up watching the original.
Don't watch this the only thing I got of it was reminded of watching the original.
P.S. I can't believe it's getting a sequel.
