    What we do in life, echo's in eternity. Maximus.
      I recommend this movie too. It's deeper than most martial arts movie and there is definitely more plot than fight. The ending credit song is amazing.
        Agree 100%

          Agreed - Not only is the movie decent, it shows impressive dedication to the art it portrays.  The director is a JiuJitsu adherent, and it shows.


          I recommend it highly!!


            It cam from Blockbuster the other day. I'll probably watch it tonight. You didn't mention that it stars Tim Allen. So it's a comedy? (I live to pigeonhole people.)


            Speaking of unexpected roles for actors, Ghost Dog: Way of the Samurai is an amazing movie.

              I need to check out Ghostdog.  I think The RZA scored the soundtrack didn't he?

              Redbelt isn't a comedy at all.


                I'm not a huge fan of The RZA, but he did an excellent job on the soundtrack.


                I knew it wasn't a comedy. Tim Allen is a good, solid actor. I'm sure he can do things other than comedy. But at some point, I know I'm going to be tempted to laugh.


                  No fighting from Tim Allen. That's probably a good thing. Great movie. Thanks for the suggestion.
