The Philly Kid Reviews
I watched this movie for the MMA element and cameos from fighters like Shawn Jordan because I'm an MMA nut. With that being said, it's a low budget flick and most of the movie is rough, including the acting, plot, sound effects etc. I doubt id watch if again, but hey, I got through it once so it could have been a lot worse.
Basically this guy gets put in jail for the wrong reasons does 10 years comes out and meets up with his friend that is up in his arm pits full of debt etc... Basically he has to fight to get his friend out of debt and for his own survival too as he becomes a target of one of the cops that threw him into jail. Basically this poor kid was the piggy in the middle. The sport in the movie 10 years ago would have revolved around boxing with the nickname The Philly Kid in the year 2012 its MMA if your a fan of MMA UFC and all things Octagon then you will enjoy this movie it has elements like the movie Warrior.
I enjoyed the movie maybe not for the ladies though a little too much tomato sauce used in the movie.
The Philly Kid shows that you don't need a A List cast to make a great movie. This is a true gem to rent and a must see for action movie fans.. Its the 2012 version of the Blood Sport or KickBoxer.
Also that kid from the classic Idle Hands is in it looking very old now.
This is the second best installment of the After Dark Action series which by the way have been great.
