Oh my god is all I can say. This documentary style dvd shows what really goes on behind this barbaric sport and will have any animal lover screaming at the tv. Some of the images are graphic and upsetting, but to balance it out there are also some nice bits about pit bulls that have been rescued. The dvd is informative but will leave you asking how can these beautiful dogs be treated in such a cruel manner. I would, however like to see a follow up to this dvd, maybe one where the owners of these dogs are put through the same things as they put their dogs through. Now that would make good viewing and I would pay top dollar to see that.

HASH(0x9df53a20) out of 5 stars A striking look at the harsh realities of dog-fighting 3 Sept. 2005
By snipe - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This film was very well done, and while there are scenes where you see parts of actual dog-fights and other graphic images, the majority of the film consists of moving interviews with animal care experts and revolting interviews with actual dog-fighters. Clips of the dogs they claim to love so much being viciously attacked and torn apart in the bloody pit clearly demonstrates their lack of compassion and makes one wonder what kind of person "loves" their animals in this way. You will watch in disbelief as these men swear they love these animals, and in the same breath make it perfectly clear that when a dog stops winning, that dog is killed - there is room only for winners in the pit. This movie is a heartwrenching eye-opener to those less familiar with the cruel and bloody sport of dog-fighting, and sheds much needed light on how commonplace this brutal activity is.

HASH(0x9e025cb4) out of 5 stars A horrifyingly honest look at an evil sport, highly educational 5 Jan. 2009
By Ashe Priest - Published on
Format: DVD
First of all, let me just say: This movie does NOT promote dog fighting and does NOT encourage anyone to engage in this illegal activity. If you have not seen this film then please do not comment solely based upon the title and Amazon's description of the film.

I watched this video knowing fully what I was in for, i.e an education about the horrors of dog fighting. I watched it because at the time I was a police officer that very often dealt with animal abuse cases and I wanted to familiarize myself with signs of animal fighting for potential arrest and prosecution. There are very graphic scenes of dog fighting, the murder of the fighting dogs by losing owners, and actual interview accounts by fighting dog owners about this sick thing they have the audacity to call a "sport". What a lot of reviewers that bemoan this film neglect to say is that the movie is not only about dog fighting. A very large portion of the movie actually casts an incredibly positive light on the American Pit Bull dog breed and shows how brave, courageous, and loved this breed of dog has been throughout the years. Several examples of this are given such as the Pit Bull has been on the cover of Time magazine (I think it was Time) in a positive way seven times, more than any other dog breed let alone animals. It also talks about how the greatest border patrol K-9 is, in fact, a Pit Bull that had been rescued from a dog fighter/breeder.

Yes, this movie does bring to light the evil horrors of dog fighting, but it also talks in depth about the efforts being made to combat dog fighting and how the mass media has painted a very incorrect view of the American Pit Bull. I think that if you work in or volunteer with any humane society or SPCA or if you work in the law enforcement field that this video should be required viewing during training. It is not pretty and I'm not ashamed to say that I found myself crying at times, but it's a hard truth that people in these fields need to be confronted with if they are going to do their jobs without any disillusions.

HASH(0x9dc1154c) out of 5 stars Hard to watch but worth it 25 Dec. 2008
By Brad Barnett - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I purchased this DVD from Amazon last week and it was worth watching.It showed me what i already knew about these psychopaths who claim to love their dogs and provide them with a life of misery.As the owner of APBT's in the past and currently owning 2 that were rescued it makes you wanna get up off the couch and knock out these thugs they interview in this documentary.Both sides of the coin are presented but the case for the fighting dog owners is weak and pathetic.Its all about money and nothing else.They look at these dogs as nothing more than a bag of crack to earn them money.My wife had to turn away and couldn't watch the whole thing due to the graphic images of maimed and dead animals.Unfortunatly as the animal control and rescue people they interview state,the punishments are way to lax when they get caught and the pits just move to new locations with more ignorant,cold hearted demonic losers participating in what they call a " sport "...Your heart will ache for these poor dogs who have no choice but to live a life of torture...I only wish they would turn on their " owners"

HASH(0x9dc15588) out of 5 stars Just take a look at reality 26 Sept. 2005
By Pitbulls for life - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This movie is an extraordinary documentary about the underground world of the American Pitbull Terrier and it shows why we have so many aggressive pitbulls not because of the breed but because of the owner and nobody else.

HASH(0xa5abed20) out of 5 stars Disturbing but educational 18 Feb. 2006
By Joshua G. Harman - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
The video would be educational to a novice audience, but anybody experienced with the apbt would have know most of the information provided. On the other hand the film was an eye-opener and was very descriptive in showing the ignorance of the supposed "Dog-Men" of the world, and their overall abuse of a beloved breed of dog. Overall a good documentary, and would suggest it to anyone wanting to better understand why the breed has been frowned upon and the people that make that possible. Definately for an older audience.
