Editorial Reviews

Over the past decade, Mixed Martial Arts has grown from a controversial, no-holds-barred sideshow into a billion-dollar phenomenon eclipsing boxing as the dominant combat sport in the world. Fightville shows how MMA has taken hold in the American heartland, where modern-day gladiators battle in strip mall gyms and dusty rodeo arenas desperate for glory and a shot at the big time. In Lafayette, Louisiana, far from the glamorous and lucrative world of Las Vegas bouts, pro hopefuls Dustin "The Diamond" Poirier and Albert Stainback fight tooth and nail for their shot at the American Dream. This thrilling, unflinching and ultimately moving documentary offers a cage-side view of these passionate and powerful athletes as they put their bodies on the line in the quest for fame and fortune.

Format:Blu-ray
The informative and entertaining documentary feature "Fightville" pulls no punches. It is a straightforward and candid look at the world of Mixed Martial Arts that can be appreciated by those that love the sport AND by someone looking for an introduction to the topic. It is surprisingly accessible, immensely likable, and presents a very personal portrait of individuals who live for the fight. Set largely in rural Louisiana, "Fightville" showcases the sport from four different viewpoints: a successful promoter, a trainer, an emerging champion and a promising newcomer. Each has a different take on (and stake in) MMA fighting, but together help to define this relatively new sporting phenomenon. What began as illicit cage matches has turned into an extremely lucrative profession that now eclipses boxing in overall popularity.

The heart and soul of "Fightville" belongs to Dustin "The Diamond" Poirier. The filmmakers had access to Poirier before he rose to widespread prominence, so if you are a fan--this is certainly a film you'll want to check out. With single-minded drive and determination, Poirier is shown pursuing his passion and making a name for himself. In contrast to a brash and youthful Albert Stainbeck, Poirier displays uncommon conviction and poise. In many ways, "Fightville" stands as a testament to fulfilling your dreams but also makes the case that it can only be done with seriously hard work. MMA is a discipline and it's not for everyone (although everyone seems to think they can do it).

The documentary does a good job getting at the heart of the subjects profiled. A lot of footage is shot in training, but there is a good deal of actual match time as well (even though many of the fights don't last long). There isn't much superfluous material.

4.0 out of 5 stars Instant classic for MMA fans May 14, 2012
By Ty
Format:DVD
I put this documentary behind The Smashing Machine and in front of Rites of Passage on my personal top three MMA documentaries ever made list. If all goes well on 5/15 Dustin should be fighting for the UFC FW championship this fall or winter, I am holding my breath for a part 2 (Hint Hint Filmmakers)

5.0 out of 5 stars Human MMA May 10, 2012
Format:Blu-ray
I was able to catch this movie at a film festival last year and I was thoroughly impressed. This is a great, even-handed, documentary revealing MMA fighters to be human people, and MMA to be a very human sport, complete with flaws and little perfections. Must see for MMA fans, sports fans, and documentary fans.

I will say that because I would think that if you are into the MMA type of fighting fan you will find this semi-documentary fascinating. I am not but I still found it riveting in some ways. this life is certainly not easy and we get to hear from a variety of fighters, family and promoters who are in this. Sad, uplifting and poignant at times. These men will get to you a bit.

This is an EXCELLENT docu about MMA. It's more than just fighting. It's also the struggle of these men outside the ring. Really compelling. The DVD arrived very promptly and in great condition.
