Wonderfully offbeat film!
It's not great by any means, but it's a pretty good movie that didn't leave me filled with regret for investing time in it.
It's an amazing and heartbreaking story.
A former fighter reluctantly returns to the life she abandoned in order to help her sister survive the sadistic world of illegal fighting and the maniac who runs it. Female Fight Club is a mix of Kickboxer, Rocky, Bloodsport, Undisputed and pretty much every movie about either boxing or martial arts in general and it also has Dolph Lundgren in it but unfortunately is far from a great movie and even more far than a memorable martial arts film. It's basically the women version of all those movies combined and also not the good version either for sure. (4/10)
Only idleness and an abundance of spare time spurs me to write this review as honestly, it's not really worth the time.That Dolph Lungren features in it should tell you where it rests on the spectrum of production. He's so firmly entrenched in the 'B' movie film category, that anyone who casts him is blatantly defining the boundaries of achievement their films can reach. Not that I have anything against him, as he was once one of my favoured action movie stars, but there is no denying the status of the roles he commands.OK, the film is trash; what little of a story that's present is ridiculous; the acting is terrible, real 101 school dropout standard; in fact, rather than go through defining elements and giving assessments, just suffice to say everything is at the very least below par.If your expecting to see a female version of the movie 'Fight Club' forget it. Aside from the title similarities this bares no resemblance to the original (though I can't say I blame them for attempting to gain a quick buck from the title publicity). Really this is just a bunch of young fit women latex clothing play-fighting, but they may as well be in their underwear pillow fighting given the experience the film is trying to portray.Unless your looking for a cheap thrill watching women tight shorts with half their assets on display pantomime fight scenes, avoid at all costs.
I figured there should be an accurate review of this movie aside from the fake one the producer posted...All I can say about this movie is please stop, this is too far. Who would have thought we'd be at the point where someone thinks it's a good idea to make a politically correct insult to the most amazing movie in history. I am going to watch Fight Club 10 times now to get this crap out of my head.I would seriously consider joining a fight club if I could dish some revenge out on the creators of this hideous piece-of-crap-of-a-"movie."Don't waste your time. Sharknado is a blockbuster hit compared to this.
'FEMALE FIGHT SQUAD': Four Stars (Out of Five)The new martial arts action movie starring Amy Johnston (a veteran stunt woman turned action movie star), and Cortney Palm. The film is about a former fighter who reluctantly returns to the life of illegal fighting, in order to help her financially struggling sister. The movie costars Folake Olowofoyeku, Levy Tran, Jeanette Samano, Briana Marin, Michelle Jubilee Gonzalez, Rey Goyos, Sean Faris and Dolph Lundgren. It was directed by Miguel A. Ferrer and it was written by Ferrer and Anastazja Davis. The film was made on a budget of just $2 million, and it was first released (in Japan) under the name 'FEMALE FIGHT CLUB' last year. I really enjoyed it.Becca (Johnston) is a former fighter that now works at an animal shelter helping homeless dogs. She's visited one day by her sister, Kate (Palm), who's in desperate need of a lot of cash to pay off some very dangerous people. After Becca talks to her incarcerated father, Holt (Lundgren), she agrees to help Kate, by training her, and some other female fighters, in illegal fighting. A life Becca desperately wanted to leave behind her.Anyone that knows me well knows that I'm a huge Cortney Palm fan (she convinced me to go vegan), so I've been interested in seeing this movie ever since I heard her first promote it (like over a year ago). I thought the trailer looked kind of cheesy though, so I wasn't expecting much, but I actually really enjoyed it. I think Palm is great in it, and I'm also now becoming a new fan of Amy Johnston as well. I also think the other supporting actresses were good in their roles too (Olowofoyeku was also really good in 'DEATH RACE 2050', from earlier this year), and I'm a long time fan of Dolph Lundgren as well. The film feels a lot like a low budget martial arts action movie from the 80s or 90s (the kind that Van Damme and Lundgren himself used to star in), but with a female lead cast instead. It's also pretty well made considering the budget.Watch an episode of our movie review show 'MOVIE TALK' at: https://youtu.be/8sMDCYeQGPU
