Michael's (Wilbert Berthaud Jr.) life is turned upside down when his parents die in a mysterious fire. At the age of seventeen, he is forced to take care of his two younger brothers (Lee Berthaud & Michael Berthaud). He tries to find legitimate work, but the constant rejections due to his lack of education and experience along with the death of his parents leave him feeling disillusioned. Through an incidental encounter with two thugs (Don Foley and Rob Young) Michael learns of an underground organization where people fight for money. Ignoring his friend Jason's (Mike Harb) advice, Michael meets with the head of the "Underground." A brief audition piques Monro's (Emanuel Ward) interest as he is impressed by Michael's raw talent.

Obsessed with this goal and convinced that he is doing the right thing; Michael remains unaware of ... Written by Teamwork Productions

Gut wrenching action, mystery and untimely betrayal make Underground a top indie fight fan's choice.
22 July 2010 | by rufusdrakSee all my reviews

Underground is an awesome action packed drama that is the heart and soul of what indie film making is all about. Mike's parents are killed in a house fire and he's left to fend for himself and his little brothers. He's no good at getting jobs because fighting is all he's ever known and been good at and so begins his descent into the life and death world of underground pit fighting. All seems to go smoothly at first but drama and betrayal ensue as Mike is forced to fight for his survival, and the survival of his relationship with his girlfriend. And let's not forget about the comedy, of which this movie has plenty thanks to its talented dynamic duo of hapless thugs who get in over their heads in the sprawling intrigue. This is a passionate movie with a heart, some of the best and most exhilarating action scenes you'll ever see in an indie flick, topped off with great acting and an epic moving score. This movie gets two thumbs up.
