A punch on my expectations, a waiste of a great opportunity
25 April 2019 | by guisreisSee all my reviews

Off course the issue of this TV series is quite interesting: traditional fights from different parts of the world. The approach of showing culture and people's lives and not only fighting techniques is also the best choice, in my opinion. Therefore, seeing this TV series in Netflix brought me high expactations. However, it failed miserably. Most of episodes are too superficial, and boring host Frank Grillo makes everything worse with his vanity and narrow mind (he is the worst element of the series). The narrated text is often full of prejudices, with silly self-help moments (particularly in the first episode, the one on Mexican boxing, the worst of them). Cinematography work is excellent, the best thing in all documentaries. Interviews are generally uninspired, even though important people have been interviewed: most of them just said obvious and superficial things, nothing out of conventional wisdom (the episode about Senegalese laam has the best interviews, and it is my favorite; it has the worst IMDB rating because many people became angry about the bad choice of not showing the end of the main fight). My ranking of episodes, from best to worst: Senegal > Thailand > Israel > Myanmar > Mexico.
