To me this film was under rated. I loved the shot selection during the fighting sequences.

It's like a mixed-martial arts Karate Kid, but without the fun or heart. There's some slick camera work, but the acting is pretty dull and the story had been done to death - just because it's a hip new trend doesn't make it good.

The director did some good camera work, and choreographed some cool looking fight scenes. For some reason though, those didn't even catch my eye. The story was dull, and extremely predictable. One cool character I guess, the comic relief go-to man. Other than that, this movie is a confused karate kid full of loud shitty music and a couple of dead acting careers. Djimon Hounsou had a moment or two. When he was kickin' ass in the gym. Overall, definetly not worth checking out. Go watch Karate Kid. Better yet, hell, watch Fight Club. FINAL SCORE :::: 32% ::::
