Put aside your preconceptions about independent production house The Asylum for just a moment. Because while, yes, a sizable percentage of their output is given over to made for television creature features and the 'mockbusters' they made famous, they're doing something entirely different with Jose Montesinos' Barrio Brawler
How so? Barrio Brawler
a totally original property, for one thing, written by Montesinos as well as directed by him. And while it certainly follows a well established format amongst fight films it's not riding the coattails of anything. Second, as you may have picked up, it's a fight movie. A no holds barred, skilled martial artists in a warehouse beating the tar out of one another, fight flick. Third? Look at the bottom of the poster. They're taking this one out theatrically. And if the trailer is an indication of what they've got, then they're likely going to find a receptive audience, too.
The story revolves around a martial arts instructor forced to fight in an underground tournament to protect his family and while we've certainly seen that basic scenario before the execution here looks like it could be the thing that fans of the Undisputed
movies have been waiting for to carry them over.
Twitch is happy to premiere the Barrio Brawler
trailer. Take a look below.
