TKO

TKO is a martial arts action movie that is reminiscent of those classic 80's and 90's B-grade moves with Van Damme and Steve Seagal and TKO is no exception to the rule. The movie stars Andre McCoy, Daz Crawford, Anthony Ray Parker, Paul Green, Samantha Alarcon and Vishnu Seesahai which revolve around an illegal underground fight tournament which happens to be run in the basement of a skyscraper which the owners have criminal affiliations.

This year their is a twist to the fight as the two men (Mick and Martin) who organise the fighters must select a fighter to represent themselves and whichever fighter loses will mean that one of these men must walk away from the fights forever. To compound the situation, one of the men, Martin, a corrupt cop finds one of the most dangerous and psychotic men in order to unbalance the fight in an attempt to keep his position.

The writers also throw in a twist with the character called Zendo, a Zen-like monk warrior who has joined the fights to avenge his brother and it's only in the end that Martin's nemesis Mick discovers that something is seriously wrong.

TKO is a combination of Mortal Kombat meets Martial arts meets wrestling that contains over the top acting, spectacular fight scenes and some really bad dialogue that will make you squirm in disgust. Like the movies from the 80's, it features a music video like presentation with women, fast cars and dangerous fights. Interesting enough not all plots are successfully finished in this movie but even with its shortcomings, TKO is an enjoyable ride down memory lane that fans of this genre from the 80's and 90's will more than definitely enjoy.

With decent video quality with sharp images and deep black levels, the standout star is the Dolby Digital 5.1 track which truly transcends this movie to the next stage and it's difficult not to be drawn in from the music and action scenes. Interesting to say the least!
