Movie Reviews

Good tournament and thats about it

(3 out of 5 stars)

"The Ultimate Game is one of those movies that tries to use all flash and very little else. There are good fights, fighters with extremely ripped bodies, and a fighting locale that is beautiful. Unfortunately there is no beauty within the movie itself.

The worst thing about this movie is the sound. The sound is crappy, from voices to effects. You can actually hear the actors speaking into a microphone and footsteps outside are dubbed with footsteps in a hallway. In some scenes you can hear ocean waves on the beach and other scene you hear no waves, even though they are cleary there. The acting is pretty bad, but the muscle build of these male actors can make up for it, especially the villains. My favorite is Sam Slater, played by Paul Logan. If he could act a little better, he would make a really good villain.

The first 45 minutes of the movies is very slow. There is no story, but instead tiresome scenes of retrieving fighters for the tournament. The tournament is about the only good thing in the movie. It takes place on a beautiful beach and there are several fights with lots of decent choreography. The final fight between the main character (played by J.D. Rifkin) and Slater (Paul Logan) is about 3 minutes with nothing too exciting in the way of choreography. The only nice thing about the fight is the two guys end up fighting in the ocean water.

There is a little twist at the end I did not expect, only surprise in the whole movie.

In the end, this movie was about what I expected. Considering how low budget it is and the actors involved, it could be worse. If you enjoy movies with lenghty tournaments for lots of fights, than Ultimate Game may please. Don't be fooled by the dvd case cover or dvd cover. The case shows 2 sports cars, which are not in the movie. The dvd cover displays Daniel Bernhardt from Bloodsport idea why that is on there but he is not in Ultimate Game.
