Storyline

Yell out "fight!" on a street corner and a crowd will always come running--at once attracted and repelled by the violent spectacle of man acting on his most primal urge. The draw of two men fighting is as old as civilization itself, but as far back as Plato, the sport of fighting has been at odds with the notion of a civil society. Over the last decade, Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) has grown from a controversial no-holds-barred gladiatorial sideshow into a billion dollar phenomenon eclipsing boxing as the dominant combat sport in the world. But far from Las Vegas, in sweat-soaked gyms and low-rent arenas across America, the big lights are but a dream. Here, men fight to test their mettle, fortified with the mythic promise that an ordinary man can transform into a champion. FIGHTVILLE is about the art and sport of fighting: a microcosm of life, a physical manifestation of that other brutal contest called the American Dream, where men are not born, but built through self determination, hard...

great movie!!
8 November 2012 | by See all my reviews

Fightville was such an excellent documentary and it gets you to see inside the life of a cage fighter. Cage fighters train day in and day out to be the best. The sport is not just a sport, but a way of life. They make unbelievable sacrifices that most people have a hard time doing. But in the end, when you have that win, it makes all the tears, sweat, beatings, and training all the more worth it. This movie did such a great job seeing the part of MMA that most people don't ever see. There's a lot more behind a pair of gloves and a clever nickname and more people need to realize this. This movie for sure gets a 10 out of 10.
