Storyline

Sean "THE KILLIN'" Dillon was on top of the world. Having become a decorated MMA champion, young Father and husband to a beautiful wife, the now retired fighter has hit the bottom. Having squandered his savings, suffered the loss of family through divorce, and perhaps worst of all, his self-respect. Although Sherry still loves Sean, she still believes that she and their son Mikey, are better off without him. Working at her Father's bar, she makes due. It's a hard, and difficult life, but at least she's happy. Sean is still around, a frequent patron, but not much exists between them now. One night at the bar, Sean starts a brawl, causing damage to the bar and hospitalizing the other patrons. Jake, a local detective and a close friend, arrives on the scene and threatens to arrest Sean unless he promises to turn his life around. A witness to the brawl, Deke, a recruiter for the Blood Circus, (a mysterious and brutal fight club), approaches Sean with an offer; to join the club in which ... Written by IvanWong

Brilliant! Better fighting film than Rocky.
7 February 2018 | by hillarytookthelSee all my reviews

This excellent film written by Eric Eeinstock is made to perfection. I'm surprised how well it has come out when he is working a second job at the same as a ultra successful dentist. I'm a harsh critic, but there is nothing wrong with this beauty. The elequent words used are amazing and bring this movie to life. I would say this movie is Rocky 2.0. Incredible! Stupendous! Eric weisntock is a one of a kind person. As a previous reviewer said that it brought out the horny audience; well it did and much more. It got my blood flowing in the first scene and then I was crying towards the end with tears of joy. If you don't like this thriller, then you have no purpose in living in the first place. This film blew all the other movies of 2017 out of the water, just like the Germans blew the Lusitania out of the water in WWI. Don't listen to the terrible critics out there who rate this. As; they just are jealous they can't be such a successful two job person like Eric. I really enjoyed the part when one character walked out of the ring disappointed because it reminds me of a story close to home about a town next door who's high school had a walkout after being beat up emotionally. I would recommend this movie to anyone.
