The best thing to do is not to read any reviews for this film, go into it blind and you will be richly rewarded.
So, in effect, stop reading now!!!!
Chiwetel Ejiofor plays Mike Terry, a ju-jitsu instructor in a struggling martial arts practice, where a turn of events occurs that tumbles him into whole new situations, both good, bad and tragic.
Whatever the world throws at him, Mike tries to do the honourable thing, an ancient notion, sometimes at odds with the modern money chasing world.
I was very pleasantly surprised by Redbelt, the many twists and turns are rarely telegraphed as per much of the current hollywood fare, the soundtrack too doesn't give the game away with bombast and fanfare either, leaving the actual acting and story to do the storytelling on it's own for once.
Chiwetel, is ably supported thru this movie by Tim Allen, playing it straight, Emily Mortimer, Alice Braga, and a host of lesser known, but very able actors.
I won't give the game away, just see this film and enjoy the ride.
Honour is restored.
