Based on Mamet's name alone, I figured this movie had plenty to offer (story, acting, etc.), but it was HORRIBLE! By far one of the worst films I've ever seen, crap acting, crap directing, crap story. Save your money and avoid this like the plague!

I haven't seen too much advertising for this film but I am into MMA and I wasn't disappointed with this movie. I think the movie should have been fleshed out a little more, because it attempted to bring to MMA what the Rocky Series did to boxing. You feel for the main character because he's honorable and has a good heart, even though he is put into some trying situations. The ending isn't

I have NEVER been as disappointed by a movie, which led me to write this first-ever review. I'm a huge fan of the genius Mamet (House of Games, Glengarry Glen Ross, Spanish Prisoner, and on, and on) and a huge MMA/Jujitsu fan since the earliest UFC's with Joyce Gracie. But this movie is simply terrible---indecipherable plot, weak motivations for many character actions, almost completely

The opening scene made this movies look promising. After the first 15 minutes this film went down hill fast. I have been into the martial arts for 23 years and enjoy an underdog, but there isn't an underdog in this film. There was tons of un-needed drama added to this film that didn't add to the plot at all. Never back down was better then this and that isn't saying much. There was no honor,

I enjoyed the movie very much. Being a fan of Mamet's other projects such as The Unit and Spartan (great flick) and a person who is involved with the Martial Arts, I was curious to see how he'll tackle Jujutsu and a UFC type of plot. I thought the main characters opinion of the UFC type of competion was beliveable because thats what true "BUSHIDO" is about. If your into MMA and all that HYPE
