This is a very moving and heart-wrenching documentary that you don't see very often. You can easily relate to the fighter's story, their pain, and the emotional toll of being in the cage. It's hard to watch these videos without feeling embarrassed for the fighters and the owners of the gym. This was a must-see for anyone who has an interest in the sport of MMA or sports in general. A MUST-SEE!

As a whole, this documentary is a great education on the importance of being physically fit and how much our lives are in our own hands. The film makes us see that it is often the people that we are most familiar with that are the most unhealthy. The truth is that it is our most personal, most intimate relationships that are the most physically and emotionally vulnerable. Not just the ones we spend our whole lives with, but also the ones that are far away from us and in which we may have less control over our own well-being. What is great about this film is that it teaches us to never underestimate the ability of ourselves and those we love to survive when we are injured. It teaches us that not only do we have to fight the physical injuries, but also the psychological and emotional injuries that we do not experience as the target of the attack. This film makes it clear that everyone has to be physically fit and mentally and emotionally healthy to enjoy the rest of their lives and even to enjoy the ones that are far away from us. If you would like to see this documentary, be sure to watch it in Spanish!

It's the story of a street fighter in the ghetto of Detroit, who fights against the police on the streets. The film follows the fighters life for a while, and how they have to get money to survive. The film was shot in real time, so it's very realistic. The film does a good job at keeping the audience interested in the fighters life. The story is excellent, the fighters life is so good, you want to help them. The fighters life is shown in such a way that the viewer can't help but want to help them. This film is definitely a great film to watch, and you should definitely watch it. I give this film a 10/10.

I'm a fighter. I have a tattoo on my shoulder that reads "I want to be a fighter" and I was born and raised in Louisville, Kentucky. I've been a boxer for the past 8 years. I think it's really cool to see the way the people in this country think about our fight and the way it's portrayed. I think a lot of the boxing shows on TV or in the movies are not as real as they should be. The camera angles and the sound that's used in boxing are used so much for dramatic purposes that it's almost like they are telling the audience how to feel. I think it's important to show people that these guys are real and that we can all appreciate that. In addition, I think people need to realize that in this country we all have different opinions and attitudes. I was in a lot of fights in high school and college and it was just so normal for me to be in the corner of a guy that was just beating the crap out of me. There were guys in my corner that were just as good as I was. I think this documentary is a great representation of what it's like to be a fighter. If you love boxing, or even just want to understand the way the people in this country feel about it, I think you will enjoy this documentary.

I loved the documentary, it really captured what it's like to fight for your country and what it's like to be a fighter. I am not a fighter, but it was very inspirational. I highly recommend the documentary. And that's what it's really about, it's about an hour and a half, so you can put it on a regular TV, and you could get it all and see what it's like. It's not the fight, it's not the fights, it's about fighting, it's about being a fighter, it's about what it's like to be a fighter. I think it's really great that there's a documentary out there, it's really great. I think that it's really great.

The Cage Fighter is the story of five men who train to fight in the cage, to help the poor poor guys in the community that have no other means of escape. The Cage Fighter shows us the truth about the lives of these men. The Cage Fighter is very well done, and I think that it is a very good film. It was a very very long film, but it was so interesting to watch. The Cage Fighter shows us the truths about the lives of these men, and that's what this film is all about. This film is so well done. I think it is very good. It is very well made. It is very well acted. It is very well directed. It is a very good film. It is very good.

This film brings back memories of my dad's days in the Navy. We remember seeing this film as kids and watching it again after a long time. I can only remember the story about the fight to protect the cave. This film is a must see for anyone who has ever been interested in war. The people in the film have nothing but praise for the servicemen and women who are fighting in the war on terror. The cinematography is great and the story of the Cage Fighter is certainly worthy of attention. I would recommend this film to anyone who is interested in war.

I have been an avid fan of this movie since I first saw it as a youngster. When it was released to video in the mid-eighties, I watched it often. I also loved the soundtrack. I had heard about the real life story of Danny Hohmann from various sources, and I was hoping that I could do a little bit of research on it. I could not have been more pleased. This documentary is a must for anyone who is a fan of the legendary fighter. You will never be able to find a more accurate portrayal of Hohmann's life. His biographies of two previous boxing matches with John David Jackson are also fascinating, as well as his last fight against the late Wladimir Klitschko. Not only does the documentary cover the whole gamut of Hohmann's life, but it also goes into some other boxing related events, such as his career with Bob Geldof. The documentary also includes interviews with his wife, Susan. The documentary is really a must for anyone who is a fan of the legendary fighter. There are some great stories told about the life of Hohmann, and it is certainly not a film for those who do not like to listen. Fans of Hohmann's life will be glad to know that they will be able to find a movie that is an accurate depiction of his life.

Just watched the new film "The Cage Fighter" at the Toronto International Film Festival. It's by far one of the most significant films I've ever seen in my life. I have to admit, I never knew a movie could be so powerful and that all of it was true. The performances are amazing, especially by Dakota Johnson and Jesse Bradford as the two brothers. The film is about a cage fighter who is unable to see at night, and gets his vision in his left eye. But the future of the American dream is in danger because he's unable to fight. But he's determined to overcome this. This is a rare movie, I think, and it is a must see. You can't get anything more powerful than seeing a true story. I'm speechless. I will not give away any more of the story, but you should watch the film and you will have an amazing experience. This is one of the most important films I've seen in my life, and I would recommend it to anybody who needs a movie to watch. You will not be disappointed. 10/10

The Cage Fighter is one of the most powerful documentaries ever made. It is one of those documentaries that you have to watch multiple times to catch all of the details. I have watched this movie 3 times and I feel like I can tell you what this documentary is about the most. The fact that this movie is real makes it even more powerful. This documentary shows how hard it was to be a fighter, the sacrifices that fighters had to make to make it to the top and the dedication that fighters had to become the best fighter in the world. It shows how much it takes to be a champion, and it shows how it takes a lot of discipline, determination and determination to become a champion. The Cage Fighter is one of the best documentaries ever made, and it should be made available to the public on DVD. I highly recommend this documentary to anyone who is a fan of boxing and would like to learn more about it. It is a must see for anyone who has ever wanted to become a fighter.

This is a great documentary. A few comments: I am a MMA fan, but this film was so good that it blew me away. I found it to be informative and entertaining. It makes you understand how men and women train and compete and all the different aspects of MMA. I am a fighter myself and the film was very educational. It makes you understand what it is to be a fighter, why they train, and how it is possible to do what they do. It makes you understand what it is to be a fan, and how to support their favorite fighters. It makes you understand the politics and how to support the fighters who fight in the cage, because it makes you understand how they feel about the fight. You understand that MMA is not just a sport, but it's not just a sport, but it's a business and how it is operated. It makes you understand why people are supporting these fighters and how they are supported by the fans. This film shows you the fight. The fighting is what keeps the fans going. If you are a fan, I recommend this film to you. It is educational and entertaining. It is a must see.

I am a fan of K-1. I am also a fan of Martial Arts. However, I am a fan of Joe Kato and the Cage Fighting. I am the first to admit that I am not the biggest Cage Fighter fan and was disappointed that Joe Kato did not make an official Cage Fighting show. When I saw his fighting in the documentary and when I saw the DVD, I was amazed at the passion and skill he used. The documentary showed him at his best and that he was one of the best in the world. The documentary also showed his past, which is very interesting to see and hear. He was the most decorated K-1 Champion ever. His fight in the Cage fighting was amazing and I have to say that it was one of the most interesting fights in the history of Martial Arts. He showed his talent with the help of Dr. Goh and that is why I give this documentary a 10 out of 10. If you want to see the best fight in the history of Martial Arts, see the documentary.

This documentary, "The Cage Fighter", is one of the best documentaries I've seen, and I've seen a lot of documentaries. The first hour is, as I said, extremely interesting and informative, and the second hour is, as the title suggests, very fascinating. It's a story about one man, who was once a boxer, but lost all his teeth when he was 7 years old, and he has lived a life of absolute loneliness ever since. He's got a drug addiction, a bizarre obsession with razor blades, and is pretty much totally unmotivated. So when his fighting days are over, he decides to fight the 100 times again. He ends up losing every time, but every time he fights, he sees something new in his life. I don't want to spoil the ending for anyone, but it's a story that would make you laugh, cry, and occasionally walk out of the theater smiling. And as far as documentaries go, this one is among the best I've seen. I'm not saying that it's a masterpiece, or even a very good film. It's just a great documentary that should be watched. I gave it an 8, simply because there are parts of it that are slow and it doesn't seem to go anywhere very quickly. But I think the film-makers did a very good job of building the story, and it's a very good story overall. I think it's a great movie, and I hope to see more films like this one. You should definitely watch it.

I loved this movie. It is amazing how a documentary can show you so much and still be entertaining. This documentary has so much hidden that you have to pay attention to to understand it. I can not explain how much I loved it. The acting is incredible and amazing. Some of the clips are incredible. But it doesn't stop there. I am going to try to post the documentary as soon as possible so that people can see it. Thank you for reading. -Angela

This documentary is the most well done documentary I have ever seen. It covers everything from the boxing promoter and trainer and the fighting history of Muhammad Ali and many other boxers. It's a very sad story, but it is inspiring. It also shows the problems of young people, including the growing problem of drug use and its effects. It also shows the relationship between the boxer and the promoter, who is to say the real promoter. There are many funny things, like the fight between Ali and Frazier. The people involved are extremely intelligent and articulate. The documentary was produced very well. I watched it several times and was never bored. It is a must-see documentary for every boxing fan.

Very great documentary. I am not a MMA fighter. I do not know much about the sport. I do know that the sport is violent and that fights are highly illegal. I was very surprised to learn that there were only three fights in the history of the sport. That is a good thing. I do not think that it is a sport at all. I do think that it is just a sport. It is a form of combat which is much more dangerous than a boxing match. In the world of boxing, there is a very big difference between violence and entertainment. In the world of martial arts, there is a very big difference between violence and entertainment. This is what this documentary shows us. It is a very good documentary and I would recommend it to everyone.

I had heard about this documentary on the web for years and decided to watch it myself. I didn't expect the documentary to be this good. This is a MUST see documentary for every martial artist who knows how important it is to train and fight for a living. This documentary will touch you in ways that you never thought possible. Some of the martial arts martial artists in this documentary speak about how they became what they are today, how they are now better, and how they plan on becoming better. This documentary will touch you, but it will also make you think. This documentary is a must see. I give it an 8 out of 10.

I don't know where to begin. I watched this documentary because of the great guy that was a fighter in the cage fighting a guy that was a wrestler. I'm a huge wrestling fan so that was awesome. I had the chance to see that guy from a young age, and I had the opportunity to see him as a big wrestler himself. I'm a huge wrestling fan so this documentary was extremely important to me. I feel like I could relate to all of the events, and I felt like this guy's life was really similar to my own, and so many things in this documentary made me want to go see this guy's life, and I hope to see him live a full and happy life. This is one of the most inspirational documentaries I've ever seen, it made me feel like this guy is a legend and he deserves more respect. Thank you to the documentary maker, he really put his heart and soul into this documentary and I hope to see him live a full and happy life. A+

Very Good documentary. The whole thing is a bit hard to digest. You have to take it at face value. How the fights were staged, how the fighters were made, how the ring was set up, etc. But overall, this is a very worthwhile documentary. In particular, it's worth watching for those of us who have been boxing for a while, and who have a vested interest in the sport. The DVD is good, with the bonus feature "Training" on the inside. Also, you get a nice article by a man who was a professional boxer at the time the documentary was made, and he is now retired. Overall, the documentary is a bit hard to digest, but the documentary is well worth watching. Recommended.

The Cage Fighter is a documentary that I watched, about a man named Jeff Hardy. Jeff Hardy is a professional Cage Fighter, who was known for his hard hitting style, which included several violent attacks, which he used to his advantage, to get his opponent out of the ring. Jeff Hardy was a fighter from Texas, but when he was in the ring, he had a soft heart towards his opponent. He had a rough upbringing, and had to go through a lot of struggles. The Cage Fighter, who is known as Jeff Hardy, says that he is a fighter who had to make his dreams come true. He says that his dream was to be a professional fighter. Jeff Hardy, was really a good person. He had a girlfriend, who was pregnant, but he couldn't bear to be separated from her. He was like a father figure to her. He was really a good person. He had to go through a lot of pain and agony to make his dreams come true. This movie, has a lot of good things in it, which you can tell, from the beginning to the end. The film is a very good documentary, which tells about a man who had to face his mother's death, and his mother's harsh words towards him. This film has a lot of good things in it, and I would recommend it to anyone who has a love for a good story, and a good documentary.

I believe this is the best documentary about the real life fighter that has ever been made. The life of a fighter is one that is hard to live and one that you don't want to be in. This documentary takes the viewer through the grueling training and fighting of a fighter, the intense feelings of a fighter, and the honest view of a fighter who has achieved his dreams. The acting of the fighter is excellent, from the fighter himself to the coach that works with him. The boxing is exciting and the fight scenes are fantastic. The music is amazing and the background music is well used. The storyline is well put together and the story is told in an easy to understand way. This is the best documentary about the life of a fighter ever made and I hope that more people will learn about the real life fighter and the world of professional boxing.

This is the most entertaining and fascinating documentary I've ever seen. It delves into the life and death of Charles Bronson, who was a notoriously tough guy, and of course had a beautiful wife. The documentary was made for HBO, and the archival footage is not available on any online video site, so the only way to see the documentary is to get it, and then pay for it. This documentary is awesome, and will make you want to watch it again and again. The documentary is just as compelling as the biography. There is a lot of great archival footage, and it goes into a lot of the details about Charles Bronson's life. It's not like you see him in the movie, he's just a guy in the documentary. I can't recommend this documentary enough. It's an awesome documentary.

I agree with all of the reviews I've read about this film. I did not think the movie would be as good as it was. I thought the directors attempt to show the gravity of the fight in this film was well done. It was actually about how the fight affects our mind and body. And how there is no way we could ever do the same thing as someone else. If you are a fighter or are at all interested in fighting, this film will change your life. I can't wait for the DVD release of this film.
