We gave it a C

From the people who brought you Boogeymen, last year’s collection of horror’s greatest hits, comes Ultimate Fights, a one-hour tour of violent conflict resolution. Snippets from movies like Gladiator, Scarface, The Legend of Drunken Master, and The Killer (and lesser action flicks like Timecop, Blade, and Snatch) are strung together in an attempt to excite, but after a while the lack of a story turns Ultimate Fights into a kind of porn; the nonstop intensity of visual stimuli forces the mind to go numb. Taken in pieces, it’s irredeemable fun, but as a whole? Brain freeze.
