Storyline

No matter when or where, if two ring bearers cross paths, they must find a secluded place and fight. Winner takes the loser's ring and any rings he has won from previous bouts. The fighter with the most rings wins a large cash prize. No refs, no rules, and anywhere can become a battlefield in the small town "zoned" for the contest. Once you're in, there's no turning back.

Artist Dan Shanks lost the use of his drawing hand in an act of violence. In debt and down on his luck, he turns to his next best skill, a lifetime of martial arts training. Given a shot at competing in the contest, he unleashes the fighter within.

Shot for $11,000, Fight Ring is indie movie-making at it's purest and most creative. Full of hard-hitting fight scenes and a unique take on the "secret contest" genre, Fight Ring has no wirework or cg fighting. It is martial artists doing what they do best.

A one star movie, with an extra for effort.
26 June 2009 | by terrencepatrixSee all my reviews

I'm not really sure what this movie is. The premise sounded pretty awesome. A secret fighting organization, identified by rings that they wear, that when they meet in the real world...they must battle, the loser giving up his ring. Also some ninja's.

Sounds cool doesn't it? Yes. You know what's not cool? 90% of it taking place in people's houses and random parking lots. Oh and there's some scenes in the local park. All of it brilliantly shot on a handcam...probably bought from BestBuy for the $599 sale.

Basically this is a premise that properly done could have been pretty exciting. It's just missing, writing, direction, a budget, a single person with acting skills, and guys who actually know martial arts. Although the lead character does seem like he knows some real martial arts...but he's so old and non-threatening looking.

Very low budget, hokey, cheesy, and pretty much unwatchable. I gave them 1 extra star because it seems like they at least took it pretty seriously.
