Release Date: July 29, 2008.
"It's a little Karate Kid, a smidge of Fight Club... a lot of the OC..." Michael Philips, Chicago Tribune.
Jake (Sean Faris) is the new kid in school. When a beautiful girl (Amber Heard) befriends him, Jake thinks he's set. But instead, her fight club boyfriend, Ryan (Cam Gigandet), smacks Jake a bloody, black-eyed welcome. Humiliated, Jake then turns to a mixed martial arts (MMA) master (Djimon Hounsou) who teaches him how to fight... and how to walk away. But it becomes obvious that a brutal re-match is inevitable if Jake wants to stop Ryan and his bullying once and for all. -- (C) Seville Pictures, 2008, USA.
