  • "Like Water"feels wildly incomplete, a let-down for fans and initiates to the sport alike.

  • A tepid, superficial sports documentary about Ultimate Fighting Championship middleweight king Anderson Silva.

    May 31, 2012 | Rating: 1.5/4
  • Pablo Croce's filmic portrait of master fighter Anderson Silva is a priceless viewpoint of a gifted but humble athlete working past the height of his powers.

Audience Reviews for Like Water


Like Water is a documentary on UFC fighter, Anderson Silva, and the lead up to his extremely publicized 7th title defense fight against Chael Sonnen. It's a short little movie, but it was very entertaining to watch. If you like UFC and the whole circus atmosphere is exudes, then this movie will give you even more of an appreciation for it. The movie doesn't really dive too deep into the legend of Anderson Silva, but it gets the surface level stuff done well enough. Basically liking this movie comes down to one thing and one thing only. Do you like watching two people beat the shit out of each other? If yes, then this is definitely worth a look. It's even more worth it if you've been a follower or fan of Anderson Silva for a long time. The guy is obviously a remarkable fighter, entertainer, and athlete. It's weird seeing this movie now, after he just lost the belt, but nonetheless, Silva's image of one of the best fighters ever can never be taken away.
