Die Fighting – Nation-Wide On Demand November 4

I’ve been looking forward to Die Fighting for a long time and I’ll be reviewing it next week; it is finally going to be available On Demand Nation-wide from November 4 so you should definitely check it out if you are looking for a real martial arts movie.

SYNOPSIS: The Z-Team, four Shaolin-forged martial artists has just won the top award at a Film Festival. FABIEN, LOHAN, DIDIER, and JESS immediately set their sights for Hollywood, but from within the shadows emerges a new challenge: the four find themselves in front of the seemingly inescapable eye of a mysterious DIRECTOR who forces them to “act” in his own brutal reality film, with the lives of their loved ones at stake.

Their every move watched through hidden cameras like mice in a maze, the Z-Team are forced to run a gamut through the seedy underbelly of LA – from robbing an armored truck, encountering a Drug Lord, breaking an entire dojo of BLACKBELTS, evading a SWAT team, surviving a blazing gunfight…and it’s all a part of the Director’s script. A dark filmmaker’s game culminating into a shocking ending which reveals just how high the price of success is.

While the found footage sub-genre of films has been popular as of late (“Saw”, “Hostel”, “Chronicle”, “Paranormal Activity”, “Cloverfield”, “REC”), none has been completed as a martial arts action/thriller. The creative mandate here ensures that this film’s fight choreography is second-to-none. Director Fabien Garcia shot the movie like a Hong Kong action flick, making it easy to understand what is going on on-screen, whereas American films are shot with the opposite of this visual aesthetic. There is no cheating the wider angles needed to capture the extraordinary battles Fabien’s script conceived.

I grew up watching JCVD, Sly and Arnold destroy bad guys, blow things up and spew one-liners like it's a fashion statement. Action is everything I go to the movies for and the reason I came up with this site is to share my love for the genre with everyone. We also want to help promote new talent whether you're making blockbusters, low-budget Indie movies or fan films; if it's action, it's awesome.
