Man merkt, dass Regisseur Jesse V. Johnson, der seit einigen Jahren echte Kracher mit Scott Adkins dreht, hier noch nicht ganz seinen Stil gefunden hat.
Ein stellenweise hektischer Schnitt und die wackelige Kamera verleiden die ordentlichen Kampfszenen etwas, zudem hat Dominique Vandenberg die Ausstrahlung und das Charisma eines Ziegelsteins.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth. Johnson has a new movie out starring his pre-Adkins muse, Dominiquie Vandenberg, so I figured I'd go watch one of their early collaborations.
There isn't much of the greatness that I now associate with Johnson, with action and performances that never go beyond "good enough" minus Scott Adkins showing up and making clear why he's a VOD action star and Vandenberg isn't , but it's still plenty watchable.
If nothing else, it's paced efficiently. Side note, is that Marko Zaror as Vandenberg's first opponent? I mean I know I'm bad with faces but I'm pretty sure that's him.
I reviewed this film, as a guest, on "Adkins Undisputed: The Most Complete Scott Adkins Podcast in the World". Review by M. Nonsensical overwrought screenplay with cheap production even for its minimal budget - manages to not fall into pure abysmal territory because st least the cast seem to have fun with it.
There are a few holes in the plot, like the ending It didn't make a crazy lot of sense, but hey, I like blood. That, and I thought that the parts with the Virgin Mary were really, REALLY cheesy.
Like, in a bad way. It was a bad special effect PLUS it was just kind of dumb. It showed that he was a religious man, but the parts were kind of pointless and dumb.
Other than those two flaws, I think this is a great movie and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to see a less psychological Fight Club.
PIT FIGHTER is one of the earlier films in the filmography of director Jesse Johnson, best known these days for making hard-hitting straight-to-video action flicks starring Scott Adkins.
This one's another action movie but sadly it's a very cheap and cheesy one, made with little in the way of insight or originality.
The protagonist is a walking lump of meat with zero personality while the interesting actors, like Stephen Graham and, yes, Scott Adkins, are stuck in tiny roles.
The film has a cheap and gloomy digital look to it which doesn't distinguish it much; the storytelling is muddled and, most crucially, the fight scenes have insipid choreography.
I honestly don't know where to start with this one. It took me two tries to get through it, as the first 20 minutes nearly put me to sleep on second thought, maybe I shouldn't watch these so late at night Whatever, in any case the filmmakers seemed to have a few things they wanted to say with PIT FIGHTER, but much of the "message" if one can call it that is blunted by not really explaining anything and massive imbalance in the narrative threads that would have fleshed out exactly what we were supposed to divine from this poorly edited mess of an action film.
The basic plot is that a mysterious man who nearly died in a shootout and has memory loss gets taken under the wing of a low level criminal in the Mexican mafia Steven Bauer, SCARFACE.
All the while he has memories of a woman he loved and thought dead, but things change when he sees her one night after a fight. As messy and cheap as the film is, it's not all for nothing.
There is a decent amount of kickboxing action, and brutal action at that. There was one scene with a guy's eyeball hanging out of his skull, which was kind of cool.
I also thought that the overall pacing of the fight sequences was adequate so that the overly ponderous narrative never got too much to take. The best action scene is probably the final shootout between the titular "fighter" and what I'm guessing was the Mexican mafia.
You get to see him mow through all of these guys, often using their own weapons against them, and then resorting to a sword that he brought with him.
The gunplay and sword-fighting was a nice changeup from the brawling that came before it. Where the film misses is about everywhere else.
They tried to make the main character, Jack as we learn late into the film , into some religious nut. He allows opponents to "show off" by beating him up before knocking them out.
He donates his winnings to a local priest from Ireland? The ethnic makeup of the cast was head-scratching at times. Was everyone except the mafia an immigrant or living there temporarily?
He also has visions of the Virgin Mary that aren't explained except kind of at the end where the actual person he's been seeing is named.
Another issue is the major subplot regarding Jack's girlfriend? Marianne, who turns out to be some university professor-turned-revolutionary stealing from the mafia in order to fund antigovernment rebels or something like that.
The story of an amnesiac who remembers his past and then confronts it would have been sufficient, in my opinion. But, I guess the filmmakers thought since it was set in a Central American country they might as well throw in some half-baked subplot about the very real political and social turmoil in the region As for the other elements, the acting was generally poor.
The best actor was Steven Bauer of SCARFACE fame , but even it seemed like he was phoning it in. The oddest of the cast had to have been the "doctor" who patches Jack up at the beginning.
