REDBELT is a above all else an fight movie but one so-filled with emotion, it is a near tear-jerking drama as we see the ideal man fight against money men and those motivated against honor. And again, it is all about honor.
| Original Score: 9.5/10

Redbelt sags a bit around the middle, never delivering on the promise of its opening and degenerating into a seen-it-before fight that doesn't lift or inspire us as much as you suspect Mamet wanted it to.

Redbelt may or may not be David Mamet's best feature, but it is most definitely his least sycophantically written.

Aside from the fact that it's never a good sign when a keen interest in a particular sport dominating a movie is a must, we've seen this tale of the virtuous gladiator encircled by ruthless, greedy wolves in countless such sports movies before.
