So Bad!
3 September 2010 | by alex-beadleSee all my reviews

This can't really be described as a movie, it's more a collection of music videos with terrible acting, fairly average fight scenes and stupid amounts of female nudity.

The storyline is the standard underdog story and, although it's not very original, it could of made a half decent sports movie if the acting was better. The main thing which annoyed me was the terrible direction, apparently the director began in music videos and it really does show; heavy rock songs have to play out from start to finish even if it means six minutes of watching a naked woman gyrate. Don't get me wrong, I'm a teenage boy and I'm usually up for a bit of nudity but at least make it relevant to the storyline rather just trying to stretch the running time.

The cinematography really ticked me off, in most films all the scenes are recognizably from the same movie, in this the look of the film is constantly changing and it doesn't work. One minute one minute you're watching a stylized fight scene, the next you're watching a brightly lit daylight scene with fast shaky cam action, where's the consistency?

This film was obviously made on a small budget (it's often obvious the fighting's being filmed in a cage surrounded by an audience of 8 people) so why waste time and money doing 360 swivels round buildings etc...

Don't even bother watching this, the fight fight scenes are less than average, if you want to see a good low-budget fighting movie watch "Blood and Bone"!
