KUDOS TO US ALL,
This review is from: Arena [DVD]  (DVD)
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.
