Movie Reviews

Good compilation
Carl T. | 11/11/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Good compilation to give people unfamiliar with Chikara an idea of what the producst is. Its American-style lucha libre with elements of Japanese puroresu and traditional American style wrestling. While some of the wrestlers may seem green, Chikara is also a training ground so some of these wrestlers are new on the scene and others are more experienced. So even the matches that may not be at a high quality you'll still see some cool moves and guys utlizing their characters/gimmicks and charisma to still bring the fun.

There are some amazing high flying moves that you will not see in WWE or TNA let alone Ring of Honor. Especially the match between Mike Quackenbush and Claudio Castignoli. The Kings of Wrestling tag matches are also really good.

The DVD actually features 9 matches with Jigsaw versus Hallowicked.

I've only discovered Chikara this year and for me, personally, its been more spot on then a lot of promotions simply because I find the product more fun and wrestlers more entertaining."
Best of Chikara (short review)

"I am a fan of professional wrestling. I am a fan of the mid-west indy scene, of ROH, NOAH, Dragon Gate, NWA, WCCW, ECW (not WWE-CW) and yes, even WSX. I have seen some of the Chikara talent on Ring of Honor shows and have to say I was impressed. I have visited the Chikara website many times and wondered about the type of show they put on. After purchasing the Best of Chikara dvd, I must say I am now a fan. The dvd compiles a great mix of wrestling styles and in ring experience. The individual gear worn by some of the wrestlers is very creative and colorful. I was very impressed by the Lucha/Japanese/European/traditional mix of wrestling crammed into this dvd. I would highly recommend this dvd to even the casual wrestling fan. It may introduce you to professional wrestling as you've probably never seen it before."
Fun Wrestling DVD!

"Tired of "sports entertainment"? Check out Chikara-a PA group that manages to put on good wrestling shows that are very entertaining. I'm lucky to live in the Philly area so I get to see these guys live. It's a great group to support. Worth every dime!"
