Storyline

One-time martial arts prodigy Michael Shaw is sentenced to community service at a rundown karate school, where he gets back into the discipline of the sport. During a local MMA fight he encounters the man who killed his family a decade ago, and his decision to get revenge involves going behind his karate master's back to train and compete in the upcoming MMA tournament. When he finally goes toe to toe in the ring with his parents' killer he won't stop until the last punch knocks his opponent to the ground, leaving him TAPPED OUT.

Top 3 MMA Movies yet!

I was expecting less, however, I'm glad I took the Chance on watching Tapped Out! I thought for sure it was going to be a corny Hector Echavarria movie but this film proved me wrong. Acting was decent, cameos were great and fight scenes were shot very well! I can see how MMA fans might want more fighting in the movie, the major action does not start until half way in. However the lack of action is made up for an intriguing story (Batman meets Karate Kid). I appreciated the references to the original karate kid. Michael Biehn who plays Reggie did a great job portraying the Miyagi element, and he was pretty comical at times. Anderson Silva seemed to be comfortable on screen and was not over the top. I wish we got to see more of him!' Overall I think this movie has what it takes to offer all audiences entertainment.

9/10 Stars
