Editorial Reviews

On a television show billed as 'the greatest fight show on Earth,' eager amateurs with lots to prove boldly step into the ring and expect to leave bloody but victorious. The ratings hungry producers seek out 'legendary' but largely forgotten streetfighters and mine their desperation for recaptured glory and redemption into ratings gold. 'FISTS OF LEGEND' features three old friends and rivals from high school days who get their invitation to the big fight for the chance to win $200,000 and much more. 25 years later - Deok-kyu, whose Olympic dreams were dashed, now runs a struggling noodle shop. Jae-seok who always wanted to be number one but still finds himself in a third-rate gang. And Sang-hoon, a thug turned corporate executive who must go back and find his bloodlust one last time. The characters are portrayed in the present and in their 'glory days' by younger selves, with the movie featuring a blend of staged MMA alongside streetfights.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Amazing Korean Fight Drama April 14, 2014
By Marchus
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This was a terrific film. I will start by saying don't expect Undisputed 2 or 3 if you do then you will not enjoy this film. I love those movies but this is more of a drama between a man and his daughter with some well done fight scenes. The fight scenes are more hand to hand style and not a lot of mixed martial arts. The movie is very well acted and displays some touching scenes while it builds the relationships and emotions of these men and their lives. I would recommend it if you like Korean drama and if you are a fight movie fan I would say give it a chance because it is just a great film period. I would say it is South Korea's answer to the Rocky Series.

Format:DVD
In a way, I was pleasantly surprised with this Korean action/drama hybrid: sure, it's about fighting, but it at least makes an attempt to fill the holes with layered, likable characters. The three main characters, once high school friends, meet again as part of a popular new TV show that pits amateur (and aging) athletes against established fighters in an MMA setting. The fight scenes are very well done, while there's plenty of drama and character development that help us get to know these three characters, both as kids and adults.

The movie runs a bit too long at 156 minutes, which is almost double the length of your average fighting movie. It's almost two movies in one, for better or worse, and some of the drama is a little overcooked. Still, the charismatic performances, fight scenes and ambition help to smooth over some of the rough edges, and the Blu-ray presentation isn't bad either. The picture (1080p widescreen) and sound (5.1 or 2.0, available in Korean or English) are both first rate, plus four short but enjoyable featurettes are also included. It's definitely worth a look, though anyone expecting non-stop fighting won't get their wish.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Movie February 18, 2014
Format:Blu-ray
Saw this movie in NY and i'm to see it out on Bluray/DVD. It's a movie about 3 older street fighters from rival high schools who are invited to a fighting tournament. Not going to give away to much but each has something to prove and are all linked to an incident that happened in their youth. It's got plenty of action and the story is good and worth adding to any collection.

3.0 out of 5 stars THE 'GONE WITH THE WIND' OF FIGHT FILMS August 30, 2014
Format:DVD
When I say that this film is a GONE WITH THE WIND, I don't mean that it entails civil war or slavery. Instead I'm talking about a story that seems to dwell forever and feels like the entire 154 minute length it runs. With a little trimming this film could have been better but at that length, while still a good movie, it seems a bit over the top.

The story revolves around a television program in Korea, a show where the producers try to bring together the toughest street fighters they can find. Week after week they bring out both forgotten heroes from the past and new toughs trying to make a name for themselves. Unfortunately the ratings are beginning to fall, especially with the same names appearing week after week.

That changes when they discover Deok-kyu, an ex-Olympic contender who disappeared and now runs a noodle shop that's about to go under. Raising a child on his own he's done everything he could to steer clear of the fight circuit. But with some cajoling by the producer and with the enticement of a $200,000 top prize, he's drawn back in.

Not only is Deok-kyu brought back but so are two friends from his past. Jae-seok was the friend that never quite made it to the top and is now a low level gangster. Sang-hoon is an executive now whose boss wants him to take the top prize and represent the company at the same time. Each has a reason for wanting to win. Each reason is something personal to the individual. Just who will rise to the top waits to be seen until the very last battle.

Unlike most movies in this genre there is more story here than you usually find. The tale of Deok-kyu is heart wrenching at times, giving his choices more substance than in the usual martial arts film.
