  • 'Fightville," you had me at "gladiator school."

    April 20, 2012 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • An up-close but superficial portrait of aspiring MMA stars as they fight their way through the Cajun Country regional circuit.

    April 19, 2012 | Full Review…
  • Ms. Epperlein and Mr. Tucker have talent and resolve - they spent months shooting "Fightville," a commitment that's scarcely evident - which makes the movie's superficiality all the more frustrating.

    April 19, 2012 | Rating: 2.5/5
  • "Fightville" feels authentic about this world, where success may be measured in wins, but the balance of unrelenting brutality and self-discipline needed for those wins is a trickier equation.

    April 19, 2012 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • The filmmakers take a mostly effective Hoop Dreams approach in showing how young hopefuls test the limits of their abilities and their economic situation.

Audience Reviews for Fightville

  • Sep 12, 2012
    <i>"We build better men."</i> A documentary that focuses on a group of young athletes in southern Louisiana as they work toward achieving their goals of becoming professional mixed martial arts fighters. <center><font size=+2 face="Century Schoolbook"><b><u>REVIEW</u></b></font></center> Fightville was an insightful look at the intense world of MMA hopefuls fighting for the chance to earn a pro contract. The directors portrayed the characters in a way that made you root for them and feel like you were right there watching them struggle and succeed. This film will appeal to both UFC fans and non fans alike. The young fighters featured from the Lafayette, Louisiana area are as authentic as they come. The raw footage captures the intensity and sacrifice these warriors make. UFC and other pro fighting circuits are the quickest growing professional sports franchise worldwide. Young wrestlers, MMA fighters and boxers are gravitating toward the sport as a place where they can continue to pursue their dreams of being the ultimate warrior. Fightville shows us how they do it.

    Boring individuals talk about their aspirations to reach the top of a boring sport. Perfect to fall asleep to.
