Editorial Reviews

World kick-boxing champion Gary Daniels (The Expendables) stars with Peter Weller (RoboCop I & II, TV’s Dexter) in the adrenaline-fuelled mixed martial arts action-thriller FORCED TO FIGHT. Once a legend in the brutal world of illicit underground fighting, Shane Slavin (Daniels) decides to turn his life around, promising his wife and young son he’s fought his last battle. But when his younger brother betrays a ruthless crime boss (Weller), Shane is forced back into the arena to pay his brother’s debts and to protect his family. Now Shane must confront a gauntlet of incredibly savage, no-holds-barred fights with no rules, no mercy and just two possible outcomes: win… or die fighting.

2.0 out of 5 stars THE GLOVES ARE OFF December 8, 2012
Scotty (Arkie Reece) is a fighter for crime boss Danny G.(Peter Weller). When he refuses to take a dive, it cost Danny money. Scotty is punished for his actions and his brother, a retired fighter (Gary Daniels as Shane), is coerced back into the ring to pay off his brother's debt. Shane doesn't want to fight as he now is raising a family. Alexandra Weaver plays his wife Connie.

While his brother Scotty is at home recovering, Shane is fighting. He can fight Apollo Creed, Mr. T, and the big ugly Russian guy all in one night. The film consists of fighting and Shane's deteriorating home life as he uncharacteristically goes off the deep end against family and friend. This aspect was not well developed. In the beginning, the fighting seemed like choreographed kick boxing. It didn't look real. The characters overall needed better developing and the plot needed a better twist or at least a decent one. They also needed to develop the fight opponents better. Unless you're a fan of Gary Daniels or fight club movies, you might want to give this one a pass.

Parental Guide: F-bombs, no sex or nudity. Girls in string bikinis holding up signs.

2.0 out of 5 stars "My reputation, my reputation, o my reputation!" July 13, 2014
Movies about underground fighting circuits are a major artery in the circulatory system of martial arts cinema. They seem to be a cinematic attempt to legitimize the martial arts beyond the standards of kung fu and ninja flicks, while not skimping on the quantity of fighting. It has been ages since Gary Daniels has starred in one of these, and so my disappointment was all the greater when "Forced to Fight" turned out to be a stinker. Seemingly more concerned with being a gritty MMA drama than a cool showcase of physical talent, the film fails every chance it gets to be something special, to the point that I'm not sure I'll even remember a thing about it within a week from now.

The story: a weathered ex-fighter (Daniels, Fist of the North Star) agrees to settle the debts of his brother (Arkie Reece, It's Alive) to a vicious mobster (Peter Weller, Dragon Eyes) by competing in a fighting circuit.

Before I get too negative, know that there are at least a few strong points to the movie, and one of them is Peter Weller. He's had some pretty memorable roles as kingpin-type characters and this one is no different, with the added distinction that he seems to be an ex-priest, wearing a collar and crucifix and training his fighters in a church. While that's pretty far-fetched, more realistic but equally notable is the way Gary Daniels' character has been written: the stress that he's put under is extremely well expressed, as is the psychological relationship between Weller's character and him.

3.0 out of 5 stars STAR DESERVES MORE PRAISE January 10, 2013
I've always been a big martial arts film fan. It started when I first saw ENTER THE DRAGON while in high school. To me that film remains the best martial arts film ever made and one of the top ten action films ever created. It was also the film that opened the door for more martial arts films that made their way into the mainstream in the 70s and increased in the 80s and 90s.

There were a number of martial arts stars during those decades that seemed to come out of nowhere and find themselves at the center of films. Billy Blanks, Don "The Dragon" Wilson, Sho Kusugi and more were front and center on the video shelves. Towards the end another star emerged as well, Gary Daniels. While his movies did well, he never seemed to get the attention he deserved. What was nice was that he did get the chance to continue on where so many just disappeared. He even got to star in some great movies such as THE EXPENDABLES. And now he returns to be the name above the title in the just released FORCED TO FIGHT.

Daniels plays Shane, an ex-mixed martial arts fighter who has retired to a more stable life with his wife and son working in a garage. Not so his brother Scotty. Still involved in the underground fight scene, Scotty owes money to the bad guy promoter Danny G (Peter Weller). Ordered to throw a fight he ignores the command and finds himself on the run from Danny and his goons. He shows up at Shane's and lets him know he's leaving for a while only to be jumped outside and beaten within an inch of his life.

Knowing what's behind this, Shane goes to talk to Danny, the man he walked away from years ago. Danny knows the potential draw that Shane has and gives him a chance to clear away Scotty's debts. All he has to do is win so many fights and the books are cleared.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gary Daniel's best yet! December 23, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I always have been a big fan of Gary Daniels and he is one of the few great martial arts/actors.He gives a solid performance as a family man forced to fight to clear a family debt.Peter Weller was great as a sleazy fight promoter.He kinda reminds me of the father from Hardcore Pawn.The ending was awesome as the credits roll.I hope to see him in more films as the lead.It's well worth the 10 bucks at Walmart.

The fight scenes were just okay, but not great. The story was okay but was just another version of stories about an individual being compelled to fight. Read more
