Blood and Bone – A testosterone-overload!

Blood and Bone banner

It’s Lionheart with an attitude! It’s a story that has been told almost to many times, but this time it was done right. The movie stars Michael Jai White and Julian Sands and it was directed by Ben Ramsey. It tells the story of Isaiah Bone (played by White), an ex-con who, in need of cash, takes on the underground fighting-scene. Sounds familiar? Yeah, I thought so!

The thing that makes this movie stand out from the rest (movies like Lionheart and Fighting) is not just the attitude that comes with it, but the incredible cameos from MMA-stars like Kimbo Slice and Gina Carano, which takes the testosterone-levels to a supreme high, reassuring the action-fans that the movie is actually as kick-ass as it says.

Another thing that stood out, was the epic scene right at the very beginning, where you see Bone’s (White) silhouette in the sunrise. It was beautifully shot and it reels you in like nothing I’ve seen before. Just look at it!

The actual movie per se, wasn’t great, but it was far from bad. If you like swift kicks, fast-paced and beautifully coreographed fighting alongside a great soundtrack and above average acting, this is definitely a movie for you! It (in my book) also cements Michael Jai White as a true action-star, with hugely extensive acting talent, setting him apart from the likes of Jean-Claude Van Damme and Chuck Norris before him. it’s a thrill-ride from the very start and it keeps you locked and loaded throughout the film.

So if you haven’t seen it yet, and you’re looking for that testosterone-overload only an action-film can give you, look no further. It will not leave you disappointed!

There you go, the last one for tonight. Tune in tomorrow for some more light-reading! But until then…. kick ass!


About hanktango

This is not a serious movie review-blog. I do not review movies in a fashion that certified critics would. I think about stuff when I watch movies, and then write about those thoughts I had during the movie. I sometimes also think about other stuff related to movies, like castings, sequels and a whole bunch of other stuff. Sometimes, I even think about video games and then write about that. The only thing that's really specific to my writing, is that I write to you in the same way I would talk to you about all this stuff. So please, enjoy my writings, and if you were to get offended by anything, I would suggest you unravel that bunched up pantyhose you have stuck up your butt and stop being so sensitive, because honestly... that's Your problem, not anyone elses. Thank you! View all posts by hanktango
