You'd have to be 'Forced' to watch it, too
13 March 2014 | by Fluke_SkywalkerSee all my reviews

There was a time when I could dial down my expectations and enjoy a direct-to-video action film for what it is. Perhaps those days are over, or maybe 'Forced to Fight' is simply a bad movie regardless of format.

You don't watch a film like this expecting Academy Award caliber acting, but the performances here make those in your average Sy-Fy 'Sharktapus vs. Hammer Head Chiuaua' flicks look like Masterpiece Theater. They're so bad in fact that they make villain Peter Weller look like Olivier by comparison. And the script... let's forget about the script. The producers apparently did.

Of course all of this could be forgiven if the most crucial element of a fight flick—the fighting—was even remotely exciting. Oh it's technically competent I suppose. These guys are all the real deal. But the choreography and staging is flat and repetitive. After about the fifth or sixth bout my eyes began glazing over and I seriously contemplated "tapping out" my self.

'Forced to Fight' is a bottom of the barrel waste of 100 minutes. Avoid at all costs.
