Great story, great acting, and some cool martial arts and fight scenes.
Similar to other Mamet works such as Spartan, the film does suffer from some convoluted storytelling and ridiculous plot twists that defy any sensible logic.
The movie centers around Mike Terry a well respected Jiu-Jitsu instructor who lives his life by a code of honor, respect , and discipline.
Slow, long and plodding with a strong finish. Chiwetel Ejiofor is annoying and way too damn serious in this film. Alice Braga was not a very likeable character. Strange movie.Published 4 days ago by Ismail

i enjoy this movie very much.
a simple man that deals with life's difficulties.

Fantastic martial arts film with shades of Rocky, The Last Dragon and a bit of a Kurosawa thrown in. Great acting. Serious martial arts movie for a change albeit with a weird plot.Published 5 months ago by Kathy Rodriguez
