  • Although the movie set in the hot new arena of mixed martial arts is a bit short on star power, it's energetic and warm-hearted enough to become a word-of-mouth hit. show more

  • Formulaic and derivative, but sufficiently well made to work as both teen-angst melodrama and bone-rattling brawl picture. show more

  • The movie is just a cheesy, preposterous, semi-eroticized way of yelling, "Fight! Fight!," when two people go at it in the school cafeteria. show more
