This is the payoff for the fact that MMA has exploded in mainstream culture. When I saw it with Obby, the first thing that came to mind was "Dawson's Creek meets mixed-martial arts", and my opinion of it hasn't really improved. Hounsou plays a compelling character, though.

Another cliché filled sports flick. Everything is seen before, but it does look really good. Technically it is great and there is some solid acting as well. And then there is Cam Gigandet. In yet another attempt to be accepted as the world's worst actor he imitates Brad Pitt from Fight Club down to every detail and then turns the insanity up by 500 %. He sucks as usual but he is very entertaining and has an impressively low body fat percentage.

It beats around the classic bushes of "The Karate Kid" and a bit of "Rocky" with none of what makes those films classics. To compare them would be like comparing a fantastic marinaded steak to a McDonalds hamburger - but who doesn't want that mushed patty once in a while? Actually, "NBD" works for the same audience that likes "You Got Served" and "Stomp the Yard." The acting isn't terrible, the fight sequences are decent, and it's overall entertaining, but it's not any good. It's junk food.

Karate Kid, this is not. From the clinically insane mother and the alcoholic father to the protagonist's loser friend and loose love interest, just about every character is intensely unlikeable. They stuffed in some of the worst music imaginable, too, including a rapper raping Daft Punk. Also, considering how the fights are based on realism, everyone having an endless gas tank is dumb. There are definitely worse put together movies out there, though.

Had a few decent one liners and some nice fights, but the rest of the movie was so detached from reality it should have been set in Middle Earth.

Finally I did not give it up for second time and have seen this movie from the beginning to the very end. I do remember when I was kid and saw Bloodsport starring Jean-Claude van Damme, movie full of violence too and nevertheless I grow up as decent man as well. This is just like that Bloodsport but shooted to "meet nowadays needs" of nowadays audience. Switch off your brains. Otherwise mark it as 5/100

Whilst talking about fight-movies as such, there is only ONE movie worth mentioning above all.... and that movie is Kara-te Kid. The first one, not the 2 sequels and exceptionally NOT the 4th in the franchise. Revenge, action and purpose has always been 3 strong things in film but in this one it has a purpose. They kept it from the ring, above the law, withing the limits of human strength. And they brought the "new" art of MMA into movies wich I myself found very interesting. Especially Djimon H

This movie won't let me hate it. When I first saw it I rated it below average, but now the more I think about it, the more I like it. This is not a great film. No, it is a movie that's sometimes nonsensical, sometimes unintentional hilarious, with a possibly hypocritical message. It's like a party that eventualy goes to shit. Could have been better but it's still a party, and they clearly had fun in this stylish film. Almost ashamed to give this a 75 but I was entertained, despite the flaws.

You can say what you like about this being a Karate Kid rip-off (and it would all be true), but you can't deny that this is a well-made, well-acted, stylish ass-kicking beatdown of a film. The young actors are hot, look the part, and have great chemistry together. The fight scenes are adrenaline-packed and bone-crunching. You get your training montages, your family scenes, menacing baddie, girlfriend... it's textbook stuff, but rarely is it executed so well. To be enjoyed, with popcorn aplenty.
