review by
Mike Haberfelner

Windsor (Susie Celek) and Tori (Chelsea Durkalec) are sisters who have long been estranged from one another, and while Windsor lives in the uptown part of town with a nice job, a fancy apartment and plenty of money to spare, Tori lives in a piss-poor neighbourhood where it's almost imposible for her and her friends to find decent jobs, and where streetfighting, even among women, is part of one's daily life ... so to keep her head over water, she has become part of an illegal fighting ring - and eventually she's found beaten to death in the woods. Now despite not having been close to Tori, the loss hits Windsor hard, and she decides to start investigating her sister's death ... but at first, she goes about it all wrong, as she doesn't know the neighbourhood, the attitude the locals might take towards rich folks like her, and if it wasn't for Tori's girlfriend Duke (Erin O'Brien) and her friends Yanni (Kari J. Kramer) and Jamie  (Cabrina Collesides), Windsor might have been killed on her first night out. But when the three try to help Windsor investigating, Duke gets beaten up so badly it lands her in ER ... which is when Windsor figures she has to train to be a fighter herself to take Tori's place in the fighting ring, and thus trains with Jabs (Miesha Tate) a tough ex-fighter and dojo owner, to become at least as tough as her sister, as she no longer just wants to find out who killed Tori, she wants to kill that woman - problem is, that very woman (Cris Cyborg) isn't exactly a pushover herself ...

 

Now one has to admit here, the plot of Fight Valley doesn't really reinvent fighting movies, and even the film's socio-political undercurrents have been done before, so the plot's pretty predictable (apart from whe welcome surprise resolution of course - but that said, the movie really packs a punch, thanks to not only the inclusion of a bunch of actual UFC fighters in the cast but also rather well-staged setpieces and a well-paced overall directorial effort that keeps the story flowing very nicely. Plus, plenty of female badassery doesn't exactly hurt either.

Definitely worth a look!
