Pretty Good
21 June 2014 | by roliveira83See all my reviews

The movie is all about human life and their stories. I wasn't really expecting what I watched but I really liked it.

Unlike an usual movie, it starts with the action. So, you are not really sure what the characters are... I mean, you don't really like or dislike anyone yet even though the stories is already happening. So they keep crossing characters life over and over again in a pretty interesting way.

What I really like about fighters movies is that we are all fighters in our life... we fight for our friends, our family, ourself. We need to overcome our challenges, be ready to "take a punch" from life and don't never give up. In the end, life is more about how much you can take and keep going than how hard you can punch. It is just and simple human stories... human life.

I understand why not everyone will love this movie, but I had a really good time watching it!
