  • for those who appreciate martials arts of all forms and the realism behind the big MMA machine now a days its a fantastic movie.
  • I'm an MMA guy and this movie was poor. Plot holes big enough to drive a truck through and unrealistic fight scences to boot.
  • Previews are not what you would think, but then that's really what David Mamet(director) is all about. This is basically his previous film with some of the same actors - The Spanish Prisoner - only with a martial arts theme in place of the energy theft. The movie has the same twists and turns that keep you guessing - almost like a DePalma film. Its not the violent action film you think it might be. ....m
  • The previews do not do this movie justice. Also, you do not have to be a martial artist to appreciate this movie; it was fantastic!
  • The first half is really strong. The last 20 minutes is pathetically bad. It was like the producers ran out of money.
  • Not quite what I expected. Its about traditional martial art principles of reservation. There was not as much fighting as anticipated. However, it was a great movie about purpose.
  • This movie is what martial arts is all about. I just don't mean the actual fighting, but the true meaning of what it was meant to be. Self preservation using a true training system (style is irreverent), and treating those skills with respect and honour. This film shows us how martial arts are just not a fighting skill...but also, a tool that teaches values and how to be better people. Excellent film! A film I’ll be proud to add to my martial art movie collection when released on DVD.
  • On eof the best movies I've seen this year, it's probably the most underrated film and wont do well in the theatre but trust me worth every penny.
  • Desrves a better rating than a mere 3 stars. A very good movie.
  • One of the best this year. On my top 10 list for 2008. 5 Stars.
