Arena (2011) review
David Lord (Lutz), a fireman and paramedic losses his pregnant wife to an accident. Milla (Katia Winter) then tricks him into going to bed. He is renamed as Death Dealer after being abducted. The Death Games is taken over by Logan (Jackson). Kaden is challenged by Death Dealer. Death Dealer becomes part of the popular, controversial, and illegal web-show where combatants fight to the death for the entertainment of online viewers. Its premise is a brutal and grotesque Truman Show with an unlikely twist in the end. Best line from Logan – “You can only hope to survive.” The bloody flick is about obsession of online internet shows, human decency, and honor. Arena had enough action for this genre, it does however felt like watching as how instead of a film.
