How do you make a fortune from the bloodlust of millions? One sadistically savvy businessman (Samuel L. Jackson) has created an empire with his brutal, fight-to-the-death gladiator website. His newest warrior is David Lord (Kellan Lutz), a kidnapped fireman, now imprisoned and forced to fight for his life. To buy his freedom, Lord agrees to do a series of lethal bouts. But as the body count escalates, and with his most challenging battle remaining, Lord unleashes a torrent of bloody carnage and reveals a secret that threatens to tear down the entire enterprise. Also featuring Daniel Dae Kim (TV’s “Lost”) and Nina Dobrev (TV’s “Vampire Diaries”).

Well directed, simple storyline, some decent acting, good cgi, some decent fights but could have shown more of them.
overall a decent action film.
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.
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.
good film but just goes down hill from there
no need for twist at end.
and defo not martial arts film more like boxing vs saw
more gore than anything else
budget film buget watch.
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.
I'd love to know how much money Samuel LJ must owe and to whom that he feels the need to sign on for this kind of thing. The effects are fine, ie the film doesn't smack of low-budget, but the acting is pretty wooden on the part of most people and simply far too enthusiastic on the part of the best known cast member. If the main draw is meant to be the fight scenes it's a shame many of them are shown merely in vignette montages. Poor old Katia Winter seems to have been hired solely to get her kit off, which is welcome from a sexy woman but she does it so frequently and for no real reason that you're left wondering if they just had time to fill. It's something of a contrast with the two bodyguard/assistants of Samuel LJ who are never undressed (or in fact remotely violent) despite everything in their scenes suggesting they should be. If you've seen Amsterdam Heavy, think of the nightclub owner Gunther's bodyguards as nothing but inanimate, helpless, soft-porn mutes in bikinis.
We've never any empathy for any of the characters, particularly the female lead nor the 'hero' who enjoys revelatory plot twist towards the end which supposedly explains his background but just seems rather unnecessary and 'tacked on' so far in. Perhaps if this had come in earlier we'd understand his desire to 'kill' the chief baddie when only seconds earlier he's resisting violence with all his heart. Certain character habits such as SLJ pausing to kiss his too assistants every three seconds or constantly micro-managing their work (running the TV show) just become irritating. They even seem to have left the door open for a sequel though I fail to see how one could be approved.

Fight movies can be good, this is not, stay away...bad story and acting, why see it?Published 20 months ago by arild eriksen
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 nightPublished on 15 April 2014 by R. Green
Basically a hybrid of The Running Man, Death Race, Gamer, and blood sport, all hosted by the friendly, maniacal Jackson on autopilot. Read morePublished on 14 Mar. 2014 by Corey Newcombe
