On a television show billed as "the greatest fight show on Earth," eager amateurs with lots to prove boldly step into the ring and expect to leave bloody but victorious. The ratings hungry producers seek out "legendary" but largely forgotten streetfighters and mine their desperation for recaptured glory and redemption into ratings gold. Three old friends and rivals from high school days who get their invitation to the big fight for the chance to win $200,000 and much more. 25 years later - Deok-kyu, whose Olympic dreams were dashed, now runs a struggling noodle shop. Jae-seok who always wanted to be number one but still finds himself in a third-rate gang. And Sang-hoon, a thug turned corporate executive who must go back and find his bloodlust one last time.

Great movie!
15 September 2013 | by BenjaminSee all my reviews

If you can get a copy with subtitles in your own language, then this movie is worth watching. It's not the usual fighting tournament movie. The movie follows a number of contestants and shows how good they used to be when younger and what they've become now that they're in their 40's. Some have lost all of their skills, but some have retained them and are still good martial art fighters.

The movie has a great build up, some good laughs, some (typical Asian) drama, but that doesn't distract at all. Overall the portrayal of the main characters and supporting characters is very well done.

This is a very enjoyable fight movie, with a good plot and some interesting surprises. Before I knew it the movie was over, it kept my attention all the time even though it's a long movie. I'm sure I'm going to watch again in time to come.
