Sabrina (Zoe Bell) is kidnapped by a secret society and finds herself in a deep dark dungeon along with dozens of other women. Each woman has been chosen along with a close loved one, and they are forced to fight to the death. Refuse to fight, and your daughter, husband, mother, etc. is killed. Lose and you die and they die as well. Only one winner will survive and survive to hopefully join the society. One by one the battles are televised in a sort of modern day gladiator battle to the death with bare knuckles.
I have been waiting for a long time to see this film. It’s been in my queue for a long time, and I finally caught it on Showtime. I was decidedly unimpressed. Fans of UFC and the Saw movies may enjoy this, but I found it extremely violent without much of a point. The battles take up the entire movie, and unlike the horrible 1970’s women in prison films, there is no point other than just women beating the crap out of each other with their fists. No clever twists and turns, not a single plot point, and the chatter between the ladies is drivel. The story is basically junk, and though the last 25 minutes are a bit more exciting and there is a bit of the ending, it’s not very well done and is a lot more of the same. There was no time spent on the plot, and no real excitement. It doesn’t really matter which of the girls wins, and there are no champions here. All in all I cannot recommend this unless you’re really a fan of girl on girl fist fights to the death or something, and I would not recommend this film to anyone as it has literally no redeeming qualities. What a waste of time!
