They are treating it like a real sport – a real sport where one becomes a champion simply through a training montage led by your alcoholic father and military soldier brother. Unless his alcoholic father is Jean-Charles Skarbowsky I can’t see this working in ANY real sport.
So this sounds totally like championship level coaching and for movie purposes I’ll assume that his brother obviously learned all the facets of mixed martial arts in his tour of duty overseas. Why wouldn’t you learn wrestling and jits when you’re battling armed insurgents in a desert?
And finally, these skills can be immediately passsed on to his financially crippled brother in a matter of weeks, it’s just that easy.
I’ll take a DVD screening of Redbelt any day over this.
Yeah, I really hope they show the dude had at least some kind of prior training beforehand. But no matter what, you know there’s gonna be a couple montages… sports-training montages!
In all fairness Pauly was a drunk and Micky was a nut but somehow Rocky pulled it off!
The alcoholic dad’s name is Paddy Conlon. LOL. And yeah, i figure the main character will need 3-4 training montages with inspirational music in order to become the best middleweight in the world 😉
damnit that’s nick nolte, not gary busey…sad face
toight ass girl is one of the doctor skanks from house
and on a side note: learning mma in a few weeks and winning a tournament is still not nearly as egregious as fatass simon pegg training for an completing a fucking marathon (while smoking) in less than a month in “run fatboy run”
What mixed martial Adam said, but that Real Steel, now THAT’S a mixed martial arts movie, no training montages in that masterpiece.
Real Talk, what serious american martial arts film does not have a training montage in it?
The director was also the producer for “The Smashing Machine,” I believe.
no one can top bloodsport and kickboxer. JCVD FTW!!!!!!!!!!
