Storyline

West Perrine, Florida is a suburban ghetto in Southwest Miami-Dade County. Over 73% of its residents are African-American and more than a third of them are unemployed. Violent crimes occur on a daily basis in this neighborhood of less than two square miles, where much of its adult male population winds up dead or in prison before their 30th birthday. But there is hope in the hood... Dhafir "Dada 5000" Harris (6'3", 270lbs., bench presses 670lbs) grew up blocks away from Perrine's MMA sensation, Kimbo Slice, and spent a year traveling the world as Kimbo's bodyguard. When Kimbo's manager buried video of Dada's spectacular backyard fight debut, for fear of Dada overshadowing his rising superstar, Dada leaves Kimbo's crew and makes a life-changing decision: Dada builds a ring in his momma's backyard and transforms himself into the Don King of illegal backyard fights in Perrine. No doctors, no ambulance. Just two men in a 12'x12' ring battling in a savage bare-knuckle fight to the finish. ... Written by rakontur

Review on fight camera work only
24 March 2017 | by dbrockwoSee all my reviews

I'm gonna make this short and sweet. Learn how to film a fight. And since I need 5 lines apparently: Learn how to edit said camera work so you don't have so many jump cuts that I'm nauseous and don't have any idea about what's going on in the fight. Watch how professionals film boxing and you'll see how you should have done it. Perhaps you were going for creating the chaos of the fight. Only thing you created was something I couldn't watch.
