We gave it a B

Noble jiu-jitsu fighter (Ejiofor) faces temptation: a corrupting Hollywood star (Allen, who’s terrific in Redbelt). Writer-director David Mamet (State and Main) doesn’t have the cinematic chops to film the fights with clear sight lines. EXTRAS include hilarious commentary from Mamet on the ”blackguards” who run the film industry. B
