real fight is outside the ring

The real fight is among the pros. The Hollywood pros. While indies come and go, Oscar-Winner and A-Lister Berry made the unforgivable error of not only directing, but also casting herself, and even choosing a non-traditional topic. For a woman, that is. Which is why most of the trade reviews talk more about her choices than the film itself. Which is a shame because the film is competent, professional, holds the attention, and has first-rate acting. Last time I looked, that is what films were supposed to be about?

I think it was a decent 1st attempt for Halle Barry.

I've always liked Halle Barry and Damn, Girl still looks GREAT, she's Not all Botoxed to death and Duck Lipped like most female stars in her age range.

This wasn't as good as Million Dollar Baby, by Eastwood. But for her 1st time, (both acting in and directing) And considering the overwhelming physical subject of MMA Fighting for a woman over 50, I think She is VERY BRAVE!! And that little boy was Amazing just using his emotions to convey SO MUCH! And how Heartbreaking was that song? Just the 2 of US????

Sheila Atim is amazing, I swear, I could feel the ZEN vibes in her chanting. :DI hope Halle sticks to it, as women directors still have a hard road, even in 2021. I think she's like a fine wine, she keeps getting better with age. And hopefully we will see future directorial works from her that will do the same. ;D.

Why do people talk about nonsense other than the movie?

Halle has made some awful movies in her time 10% good the rest dross. I never thought they could get any worse but this is an embarrassment. It's no wonder no one has heard of it.

Jog on and pass this by. Halle as an MMA fighter is as convincing as Trump as president.

Cmon man

Holy moly this was just bad. I was wondering why Halle Berry was at the last UFC fight. I though it was Dana White doing a make a wish for Hollywood. Then I saw this movie on my TV. I said ohh. So I watched it and wow BAD lol. I mean who wrote this BIDEN? SMFH. The fighting was laughable. Just horrible choreography. It's like somebody filmed it while hiding in a box. I hope nobody had to actually pay to see this. Wow.
