Movie Reviews

Team Japan vs Team Chute Boxe!
Brian J. Bennett | FPO, AP United States | 10/06/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This was the second volume of a continuing series of great Pride: Bushido events. The theme of Bushido in the beginning was pitting one fight team against another with rules more geared towards excitement and constant progression to finish. While the latter hasn't changed, it has become a great show in which to give the greatest welterweight and especially lightweight fighters around the world a chance to show their skills.

This particular card's theme was that of Team Japan vs Team Chute Boxe. Chute Boxe is one of two top Brazilian fight teams that are arguably the best in the world. They are very good strikers primarily that are very multi-dimensional, and love stomping and "soccer kicking" downed opponents. They hardly ever stop fighting, have incredible stamina, and are some of the most exciting fighters in the world. Most Japanese fighters tend to prefer the ground game, using submission tactics and being very technical, etc. Most of them never give up and have great heart.

Overall, I found this event to be very decent and entertaining. I do however feel there were a few mismatches. Specifically Mirko "Crocop" Filipovic vs Yoshihisa Yamamoto, Wanderlei "The Axe Murderer" Silva vs Ikuhisa Minowa,Takanori "Fireball Kid" Gomi vs Jadson Costa, and Mario "Zen Machine" Sperry vs Mike "Batman" Bencic. Although it did also have it's share of very competitive matches as well. The card had some great debuts from some popular fighters in smaller organisations in Japan such as Yushin Okami, Ryuta Sakurai, Ryuki Ueyama, the very tough Akihiro Gono, and of course the top Lightweight fighter in the world currently, Takanori Gomi.

If you're not familiar with Gomi, he's currently undefeated in Pride, and has been on a roll since he got there. Racking up 9 consecutive wins so far. He comes from a judo background but wrestling and boxing are his specialty. He likes to mix it up with the best of them standing, but doesn't mind going to the ground and instituting his great ground and pound. His only two losses in his whole career come from Joachim Hansen and BJ Penn, two other great fighters.

If you're already a fan of Mixed Martial Arts and especially Chute Boxe, I'm sure there's no doubt this is already in your collection. But if you want a decent fighting event with some guys getting destroyed don't hesitate to pick this up. This dvd is worth it just for Gono vs Shogun alone in my opinion. A very exciting fight.
