Audience Reviews for Fight for Your Life

It's not a horror film but this tasteless exploitation piece was deemed controversial enough in the UK to make the video nasties list and is still banned to this day! But is it any good? Well that depends on your personal taste. If you don't mind politically incorrect grindhouse movies then you'll enjoy this more than others would. It's a home-invasion movie featuring indiscriminate murder, rape, humiliation and racist language. But for all those unpleasantries the most shocking moment in the film would the killing of the young boy which really was quite brutal. Much is made of the racist tones in the film, mostly from the lead villian played brilliantly by William Sanderson. But the racist insults fly from all directions, including from the black family and the other two villains, one is Mexican and the other Chinese... it all got quite humourous at times! It's too cheesy to get really riled up about so I had fun with it.

Picture a REALLY racist version of The Desperate Hours. The gang is lead by a redneck J.F. Sebastian from Blade Runner and the family are baptist blacks. It's nowhere nearly as homoerotic as this poster suggests. The NY intro is fun and despite this being one of the most politically incorrect movies ever made, it's for lack of a better term... fun as a time capsule. It's also safe to say this one will never get remade.
