    Fighting - the movie

    Just found it. I don't know if its posted already, but you could imagine how many search results I get when I type 'fighting' and 'movie'.

    Anyway, it looks chuck full of cliches. Poor kid with aggression problems.... gets discovered by underground fight organizers.... does well... gets chance to be rich.... Theres a girl in there somewhere....

    Looks like something I'll wait for the dvd for, but here it is for your review:

    GLADIATOR (not the Crowe one) for the 00's.

    Still looks like it will be entertaining. Can't be worse than Never back Down. Can it!?!?!?!

        Fifteen minutes of decent fighting spread between an hour and twenty minutes of piss poor writing utterly soaked in stupid cliche ; Or, in short, a good movie to get really drunk and watch with friends.

        Emphasis on really.

          The trailer shows Cung Le as having some part in the movie. There was a short clip of him taking down someone with a crab scissor takedown.

            The title is so lame. It's like if Days of Thunder was called "Driving"

                Or if Never Back Down was called "Fighting". Oh wait...

                  They did make Driven.

                    Shouldn't you guys all be really happy about never back down on the basis that it's karate kid with all the stupid "train using nothing but kata and without sparring then beat people who spar hard on a daily basis" crap taken out and hard training in it's place?

                      The amount of fight highlights I've watched with that fort minor song used as music and again I hear it in the trailer to that movie. It does kind of look a bit like the cuba goodin jr gladiators but a lot more sloppy and tastless, I might get this when it comes out here as a rental, maybe the end of this year? lol

                        You have no idea how many times I've seen that.

                          Looks OK to me. Will be better than some of the BS that I've seen lately.

                              the fighting looks like shit... and the whole plot would be cut to shreds (literally) as soon as someone got pissed and brought a knife or gun to a fight
                              In summation your argument denotes a lack of intellectual honesty on your part. It is my contention that this matter would best be solved with fisticuffs. I believe I will be victorious in this regard.
