Respect the teacher; follow the code; do not dishonour the academy. While the final act plays out as the fantasy of the unacknowledged hero finally and triumphantly achieving his glory, it is clear that Mamet is determined to run up hard against what he perhaps justifiably takes as the spirit, or spiritlessness, of the times, and this gives an increased directness and urgency to the contempt for corruption, immorality, and the falsity of the charade that is, for better or worse, his hallmark.

A brilliant performance from Ejiofor grounds a quite wonderful Mamet drama, which only falters during its climax, which lacks the necessary 'punch' to satisfactorily close the story. A gaggle of fine actors and Mamet regulars are great fun to watch, especially Allen's pompous, over-the-hill action star, and Mortimer's teasingly ambiguous lunatic. Fine, moodily evocative camera-work is also a highlight throughout.

Not really a martial arts film in the way the promo material suggests, this is more of a morality play. It takes the traditional underdog story seen many times before and gives us a version with some depth and characters worth caring about. Slow-burning, but Ejiofor's solid portrayal of the honorable everyman fighting against the big guys keeps you watching.

For a movie about MMA, it really avoided the subject. However, the casting of Tim Allen as a rich, washed up, alcoholic actor was right on point.

It's hilarious how much this movie doesn't know a damn thing about the MMA/UFC. But outside of that, the film starts off well with a good premise but gets bogged down to a bunch psuedo-philosophical bullshit, really idiotic scenes, silly plot holes and a godawful ending. Personally I think they should have gotten a more competant martial artists lead actor{or stunt double, I guess} and threw in some more fight scenes which might have saved this movie from its eyerolling attempts at a plot.

Some mind-bogglingly bad scenes, dialogue and acting, plus a fairly ludicrous, nonsensical plot - and a holier-than-thou lead character who is quite easy to dislike. Sounds like a bad time, but still, I got caught up in it. Especially somewhere around the middle part, it has a certain mood and tone and a freshness about it. Ejiofor is good as usual. Some well-shot scenes as well. I ended up sorta liking it. Certainly much, much better than the impossibly overrated Warrior from last year.

"David Mamet may not be the visual stylist that Jean-Pierre Melville was, but in most other respects, his Redbelt is faithfully cast in the tradition of the great French auteur's Le Samouraï." - Nick Schager

Came in with low expectations on this film, but in the end I found it entertaining. Story was good although the movie moved a little slowly. I like the conflict of the instructor and wished the writing moved the movie along better.

I have little knowledge on David Mamet, but this is an encouragement to explore both his cinematic and stageplay work. Redbelt is another great example of an intelligent director working in genre film, making both an exceptionally entertaining work but also adding a depth to it. It helps as well that he has someone as good as Chiwetel Ejiofor in the central role, who in a perfect world would be a major star. Some may have criticisms, but this turned out to be a gem after low expectations.

A martial arts teacher who takes seriously the honor code from their master samurai. How our troubled world deals with this type of conduct? (Spoiler ahead) Very good movie with great script and a final scene that deserves to be better clarified. How the great master understood the extent of what was happening there?

Mamet's self-seriousness stifles Redbelt's cinematic potential. It's so tightly structured it offers no surprises -- especially not the satisfaction of watching action-movie conventions reward a shared sense of morality.

This film feels like Crash except it has with mixed martial arts instead of racial tension. Strange mix, to say the least, but it's not bad, until fantasy ending.
