Plot Summary: Set in the west-side Los Angeles fight world, a world inhabited by bouncers, cage-fighters, cops, and special forces types, "Redbelt" is the story of Mike Terry (Chewitel Ejiofor), a Jiu-jitsu master who has avoided the prize fighting circuit, choosing to instead pursue an honorable life by operating a self defense studio with a samaurai's code.

Terry and his wife Sondra (Alice Braga) struggle to keep the business running to make ends meet. An accident on a dark, rainy night at the Academy between an off duty officer (Max Martini) and a distraught lawyer (Emily Mortimer) puts in motion a series of events that will change Terry's life dramatically introducing him to a world of promoters (Ricky Jay, Joe Mantegna) and movie stars (Tim Allen). Faced with this, in order to pay off his debts and regain his honor, Terry must step into the ring for the first time in his life.

I haven't even seen the trailer, but Chewy is the man.

I really like Mamet's work. Looking forward to this.
Saw this trailer when I went to see Rambo, looks good :up:
If this wasn't Chiwetel and Mamet, I wouldn't anticipate it at all. I do now though.
Very well edited trailer. :up:

I'll try my best to find it when it's released, however hard that may be.
Certain shots in that trailer look weird, like super-imposed background or something. I don't know. Story looks good/original though.

The best shot of the film has already been shown, according to CHUD. I don't know about that.
Anyone see this today? Looks good. Is it any good though?
I saw it on Friday. I don't know what to think about it though. Mixed feelings on this film.
I've been trying to find a theater with this film, but alas, no luck. :csad: I even asked someone official in the theater, and they looked at me with a confused, non-descript expression.
very excited that this was shown in my neck of the woods. really liked it. the double-crossing and how deep they went was done well. Chiwetel Ejiofor is really good in this.
finally, Tim Allen is actually in a decent film where his acting seems subtle.
