Express Review

The story is about an MMA fighter Cole Young (Lewis Tan) who is unaware of his hidden lineage. A clan of assassins are hunting him down. In order to protect his family, Cole seeks out a team of fighters. They are picked to defend Earthrealm against the forces of Outworld.

It’s worth watching for the fight scenes. As far as the violence, the movie definitely deserved the R-rated. Some scenes were very graphic in nature much like the games themselves.
