FILM REVIEW – 12 (Twelve)

By Marty Mulrooney


12 (Twelve) is a British martial arts movie directed by Chee Keong Cheung. Originally released in 2007 as Underground, it tells the story of twelve fighters from a variety of backgrounds, all competing in an illegal fighting tournament for a prize of £500,000. Low budget but made with professional input (the fight scenes were apparently put together by renowned fight choreographer David Forman, who has worked on such films as Clash Of The Titans and Batman Begins), 12 (Twelve) also features a wide range of British martial artists/actors, giving it slightly more pedigree, on paper at least, than your average shot-on-a-shoestring-budget action flick.
