An action-packed documentary
29 October 2000 | by See all my reviews

Although it was a little bit bloody for me, the documentary was interesting, well done, and action-packed. I've heard a lot about these no-holds-barred events but have stayed away from them. This film was a gentle introduction to this crazy world of fighters.
