2.0 out of 5 stars THE GLOVES ARE OFF, 16 May 2013
By The Movie Guy TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Average 13 July 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I've always liked Gary Daniels since seeing Fist of the North Star back in my early teens, and I'm sure many fans will agree that this was easily his best role.

In this film, the plot is nothing unusual and other people have already outlined it. Acting-wise, Daniels struggles to be honest, very wooden and there is harldy any chemistry between him and his on-screen wife and brother. The unimaginative script probably doesn't help.

The fighting element of the film is also very poor. We know that Daniels is literally the 'Brit Kicker', and he is in good shape and very impressive for his own part, but for some reason and with only one exception, his opponents are a bunch of progressively fatter east-european thugs (despite being set in USA). The only one who looks remotely menacing is the huge tattooed guy but he is relegated to being one of the minor opponents. The final-fight 'nutter' who is supposed to be an indestructable killing machine is some big fat guy who looks like he just finished a shift at a kebab shop and wandered into the arena!

As for Peter Weller - decent enough performance as the nefarious 'Danny G' and he arguably steals the show.

The DVD extras are very poor - a token effort at best of about five minutes worth of 'behind the scenes' but they don't feature Daniels or anything interesting.

It's a shame Daniels didn't have more success back in the late 90's when this genre was so much more popular. It was a great break for him being in the Expendables but his part was so minor that it hasn't really done that much for his career, as Forced to Fight clearly demonstrates. Three stars.

2.0 out of 5 stars Kick. Punch. Rinse. Repeat. 28 April 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Gary Daniels returns to what he does best. With what feels like way too long in the wilderness, our favourite cockney kick-boxing bruiser is firing on all cylinders in this decent, low budget actioner that combines elements of 'Kickboxer' and 'Bloodsport' with a Saturday teatime episode of 'Family Ties'. Hey, it works. Go with it.

As always with a film of this type, our Gary plays Shane Slavin - a one-time legend in the brutal world of underground fighting who worked for movie rent-a-mob boss Peter Weller (on scene stealing form) has turned his life around. Now, taking things easy with his wife and son and no longer playing weekend warrior punching seven shades of (ahem) out of other less fortunate MMA types. But when his younger brother betrays Weller - bailing on a deal they made for him to take a dive in the ring, 'ol Gazza is forced back into the arena to pay his brother's debts and protect his family. Its the usual ''man's gotta do what a man's gotta do'' formula, but in this instance it sorta works.

Gazza, unfairly forgotten in the pantheon of 90s direct to video action stars who flocked to watch Van Dammage and Fat Dracula himself, Steven Seagal instead - may now find time to fully appreciate what he has to offer, in light of his minor role in ''The Expendables'' when he was cleverly called The Brit. Oh, the irony. Daniels may have been out of the game for too long now, but for his fans (me and a guy from Peckham) - its lucky us - as he's back on sterling form in ''Forced to Fight''. Granted, its the same old story you've seen countless times before and 'ol Gazza is never going to be mistaken for being in a Merchant Ivory film, but when it comes to punching folks in the face - Daniels delivers in spades.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great comeback for Gary Daniels 17 Mar 2013
Format:Blu-ray
Following a supporting role in blockbuster 'The Expendables', 90s DTV action star Gary Daniels landed his first leading role in a decade with this movie. Originally intended to be released in cinemas, this is a must for action movie fans and anyone who fondly remembers Gary's 90s hits like Rage, Recoil, Firepower and many others.

As the title suggests, Gary is 'Forced to Fight' in an underground tournament organised by the criminal Peter 'Robocop' Weller. The movie has good production values and the fights are well staged and easy to follow, with the added bonus that Gary and the others are actual fighters, unlike actors in modern Hollywood 'action' movies. The story is simple but well executed, which is what counts.

To summarise, it's great to see Gary Daniels back leading a movie that is as good as his best 90s actioners.
