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.

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

It's a mindset that's summed up well when Ryan tells Jake, "You gotta give people what they want." Clearly, the filmmakers felt the same way. (pluggedin.com)

If you like mixed martial arts and sports,you'll love this movie. If not, then it won't seems as good. It has a really strong message about how everyone has their own fight, and you can't just quit, which I admired. But, the plot was lacking and predictable. The movie missed a great opportunity to put drama in the love triangle between Baja, McCarthy, and Tyler. It was touched upon, but not to its potential like in trailer. More of a thriller than a drama. Good movie, could've been better.

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

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.

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.
