TOP 1000 REVIEWERon 12 April 2012
Some guy (who cares - he's the hero) gets abducted by one of those sinister organisations who stage online fights to the death to amuse the masses when X-Factor isn't on telly. He has to fight for his freedom, or escape, or do something like that.

Let's face it, the only reason this got made is because Samuel L Jackson is in it. By and large, the acting is terrible from everyone - even the man himself. He's okay, but he could act his way through this with his eyes closed. Although why he chose to do this film while he is still being offered projects like The Avengers in anyone's guess!

The fight scenes aren't bad. They have added `cool' effect to them thanks to some trendy slow-mo, but the story (and I use the word `story' in its loosest possible terms) is predictable and riddled with cliches (and `twists' you can see coming a mile off). However, despite all this, the film isn't totally unwatchable.

For some reason it's not that bad. If you don't mind your films pretty dumbed down and badly acted then get a couple of beers in plus an extra large bucket of popcorn, put your mind on hold and watch the (CGI) blood flow.

If you're a fan of the game Tekken then this is for you. A criminal mastermind runs a fight to the death series of games on pay to view via the internet. Every fight has a theme and is staged in front of a green screen computer generated background and the loser dies. Its not original but it diesn't suffer from the low budget and if you want to watch vicious fights then it fits the bill. There's even a story of sorts. Bit of laugh including Nina Dobrev in the casting though, she dies in the first scene.

Samuel L. Jackson runs an illegal Internet site that has live "to the death" arena style fighting (with servers in Hong Kong, Iceland, and Dubai). Meanwhile a ex-Marine corpsman soccer player named David (Kellan Lutz) loses his pregnant wife in an auto accident. David is suicidal and takes to heavy drinking. He is captured by a seductress Nina Dobrev (nudity) and is forced into the arena.

David is rolled around like Hannibal Lechter when not fighting. Samuel L. Jackson appears to relish his role adding character to a grindhouse film. Plenty of blood. Good killer sound track. Even has a few twists. Cult possibility.

F-bomb, sex, nudity. 5 stars on a grindhouse scale.

This tells the story of conputer generated online fighting tournament where two contestants fight to the death using an array of varied weaponry. Opening the window at specific times, the public log on watching the battle and bloody annihilation of one of the opponents in various forms gathering a larger audience each time. On their tail chasing and trying to infiltrate and stop the organisation and locate its whereabouts the FBI close in monitoring the events.

This is a pretty good film considering its limited budget and there are some difining moments, however having Samuel L Jackson playing the leading role does make it that much more watchable and gives it an extra star.

If you like good old fashioned fight movies where people bloodily beat each other up then this film is for you, the story has been done before but this does add a few new elements to the story and even has a little twist believe it or not, the fights are gritty and realistic with plenty of brutal bloody action and some gory scenes too, its slightly on the cheesy side but thats what makes it utterly entertaining and fun to watch, get some popcorn, take your brain out and have a good time with this!!

David Lord finds himself forced into the savage world of a modern gladiatorial arena, where men fight to the death for the entertainment of the online masses.

Well directed, simple storyline, some decent acting, good cgi, some decent fights but could have shown more of them.

overall a decent action film.

I thought was going to be rubbish. I was so wrong. Its great fun, really enjoyed it! Decent acting, not great, but who cares this is a very fun low budget film with a kick and a slice. Its mix between gladiator, hostel, and death race! Im buying it, its only a fiver!

Surprisingly good film, especially for kellan lutz fans. An action movie that won't win awards but is a good old popcorn movie for a Friday night
