Movie trailer


Okay film not the best fighting movie I've seen tho.
im a fan of most fight movies and i would have to say i found this to be no where near as good as NBD but an ok watch..more of a street brawl ,so no awesome fight sequences to speak of ..but i guess its just diff. i do like the new age Rocky<<sly stallone Rocky) type music so to sum it up i agree with @crizz2001
Not bad i liked it but a little predictable
This movie made me want to shoot myself. If it wasn't for the mediocre fight scenes I don't think I would be around to write this review.
A likable performance by Channing Tatum is a plus, some good action sequences but unfortunately, the story is nothing new and the plot is paper thin. Terrence Howard offers good support. Not bad.
Una pelicula muy floja en todos los sentidos, nunca llega a trascender mas alla de las peleas callejeras...
La historia de los personajes nunca es abordada de manera correcta, y solo el pasado del protagonista es tocada tangencialmente. La historia en general es muy discreta, falta de originalidad y perfectamente predecible..
Predictable, dull, and absolutely horrible dialogue are just a few of the things that come to mind after seeing this movie! Despite, an expected, good performance from Terrance Howard, the movie has almost nothing going for it. Although Tatum's performance wasn't horrible it is definitely not the performance that the film needed from its lead actor, in order to be any type of success. Lastly the performance by Tatum's love interest in the film, performed by Zulay Henao is possibly one of the worst attempts at acting that I have ever seen! It is sad because the film had a decent premise and could have been a munch more enjoyable film.
Fighting is a mixed bag. It clearly was never intended to be a dramatical masterpiece but nor is it an action extravaganza. Unfortunately many action movies this side of the millenium have interjected long, dramatic scenes in between the action sequences to build characters, plot, etc.

Where most get that horribly wrong Fighting manages to pull it off and keep interesting throughout thanks to great performances by the cast and well choregraphed fight scenes. This isn't to say that the plot is perfect but it is definitely passable for this type of movie.

Overall it is an enjoyable movie to watch and recommend it for those who don't mind waiting for the fight scenes to come by :p
actors either came up with those dialogues on their own on the set, or they were too lazy to learn them properly. either way it sounded awfully forced and unnatural. but fighting scenes looked very realistic.
I liked the style and the setting of the film, but its plot is cliched and preposterous and the movie is boring unless someone is fighting. For a movie called "fighting", it sure didn't have very much of it. Just tedious drama that seemed like it was made up on the fly to fill in the gaps.
