  • Too hollywoodian for my taste. A girl couldn't beat him with two hands, but succeeded with a broken wrist. And to be honest, a girl should be dead by now if a man like this one hit her for real like he did.
    • Bo
      Yea, I'm with you on this one, tarek. If she was such a bad ass able to kick a guy's butt in the ring why didn't she just kick the shit out of the boss man? Words that came to mind while watching it was cliche to the max, very, very contrived, maudlin and sentimental and absurd beyond belief as to the circumstances. I had to choke back laughter at the end scene of them feeding one another. Silly stuff.
  • Mark
    I liked it. Very nicely done. I wish this director the best in getting his career going, not a bad start!
    Cool trailer but the fighting...not so much.
    • What's wrong with the fighting? I dug it.
      • harm
        Pretty horrible fight choreography. kind of sad that my thought when the "generic bad guy" references her languishing in a wannabe UFC was that its no reason she's languishing punching as badly as she is...
  • harm
    Meh. Not really that engaging. Poor fight choreography. Decent Acting, no point and was very generic. But GREAT CINEMATOGRAPHY. That was certainly the highlight.
  • I've earned 104 thousand dollars in last 12 months by working from my house a­n­d I manage that by w­o­r­k­i­n­g part-time f­­o­­r few hours each day. I used work opportunity I was introduced by this web-site i found on-line and I am thrilled that i earned such great money. It's really beginner friendly a­n­d I'm just so happy that I found out about it. Check out what I do... STATICTAB.COM/owgxpdb
