Movie- "Hard Luck"
In Honor of Wesley Snipes ' arrest, I rented his latest straight to video, "Hard Luck". It's directed by Mario Van Peebles, and has Cybill Shepard as a serial killer. The reason I posted about it was one of her victims is an MMA/Cage fighter ( she has an Asian partner) who is first stun gunned while trying to rescue his girl friend. Later, the MMA guy is emasculated, moaning to his girlfriend " I was never strong enough for you.." . The Asian guy cuts his throat- no resistance is put up by the MMA guy. Eventually, we find out the Asian serial killer has "practised martial arts for 17 years" before he and Snipes have a little showdown. The way they made the MMA guy look so stupid reminded me of this forum, for some reason. Anyway,
I was, I hate to say it, rather amused, mostly by the strangeness of it all-
Here's the trailer
I bet Phil Elmore creamed his pants when it showed a real fighter getting stun gunned by a crazy person (which is basically the first tenet of his "style").

Just BTW, the asian serial killer seemed to be a proponent of XMA, just to add insult to injury. There was a little BJJ, right at the end, Mario Van Peebles try's for a triangle. Maybe the screenwriter got his ass kicked by an MMA guy?
