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.

Enjoyable well done film that was just a little long,but over all a good story and characters!
24 April 2014 | by CarlSquareSee all my reviews

Tapped Out has said to been to be a new take on the Karate Kid type story but with a MMA twist. And Tapped Out was actually pretty enjoyable. Tapped Out has good acting from Cody Hackman, Michael Biehn, and Krzysztof Soszynski. The film was just a little long even though it was quite fun with its awesome and gripping action but also had good characters. The story follows Michael Shaw from when his parents getting carjacked and murdered until he seeks revenge and wants to fight the man that killed his parents. Tapped Out also had some beautiful action and landscape shots. Anderson Silva and Lyoto Machida also have a very cool cameo.The characters where well developed and main character Michael has an interesting love interest. The film also has some hilarious jokes here and there. unlike lots of recent films Tapped Out uses practical effects which are always awesome. The film has a great amount of action, and good dialog. The movie has many different genres romance, drama, action and comedy! I would definitely recommend Tapped out!
