Review: Blood and Bone

Story centers on an ex-con (Michael Jai White) who takes the underground fighting world by storm in his quest to fulfill a promise to a dead friend. A promise that will take from fight to fight to reach the goal of saving his friend’s family from the king pin of the streets. I knew this was an all fighting movie but I wasn’t expecting much from the script but turned out to be better then I expected. Some scenes were overplayed but overall a nice martial arts movie with some story to it, and when you get caught up with the fight hoping to see the other guy get beat up you know that your enjoying it. The choreographed action was pretty good sinceits realistic, a few parts could have been done a bit better but you can tell that Michael Jai White is a real martial artist after all, White is a bad ass who actually knows, and practices multiple martial arts — Shotokan, Tae Kwon Do, Kobuo, Goju Ryu, Tang Soo Do, Wushu and Kyokushin. I wouldn’t want to piss of this guy.
