Bangkok Knockout

Give a Thai stunt team an empty warehouse, some cameras, and just enough of a story that it's not just an exhibition, and you've got Bangkok Knockout.  The challenge with having a movie that is just a series of fights is one of pacing.  You either need a break between them, or gradually ramp up the intensity, otherwise you burn out your audience.  Bangkok Knockout tried the latter approach, and it almost worked, but by the end there was just too much.  This kind of movie probably works better in small pieces.  Here's the best cage fight you'll ever see
