Thank you kingpin33. For days I valiantly searched my soul for the words to aptly describe the low budget urban drama Blood of a Champion. There was a time when I believed that I would never muster up the necessary words that I so sorely needed. I owe you one buddy.

Bokeem Woodbine has been wonderful as a supporting actor in a variety of films, with my favorite performance of his coming from 3000 Miles to Graceland, which was a big screen, big-budget direct-to-video film as far as I’m concerned. Here he plays ex-con of ten years Shadow, a former boxer that finds readjusting to civilian life a difficult task. His wife Sharon, who has become a success in the time since his incarceration, still loves him and wishes nothing more than for Shadow to find happiness in a job in her company’s mailroom. Angry and confused, Shadow naturally decides to join some underground fighting competition where the fights can happen anywhere. Conflict arises, as does boredom.

This film sucks.

It’s technically inept, boring, clichéd, badly acted, and one fight scene actually has Terrence and another character slapping each other hands in a “fight” that could’ve been pulled off more convincingly by two eight year old sissies.

Blood of a Champion was actually produced by the RZA, who gained much notoriety by doing the music for the Kill Bill films. The great job they did producing this one just further exemplifies the old rule that just because you’re good in one area of entertainment doesn’t mean you’ll excel in another.

The large drama portion of the film is dead on arrival, and the fighting plot was done so much better in Game Over.
DVD: Barebones.
