Brutal: A Taste Of Violence (Tv Mini-Series) Review Dan's Movie Report

Special thanks go to my action friend Byron Gibson for his patience in me working on this review. Brutal: A Taste of Violence is a web series that is an hour in total length yet broken up into very small segments. Brutal in its entirety plays out like a tournament fighting film minus the 30 minutes of in between material likened to fluff. Yes, have no fear there is a story hiding in there based on a fighter lured back to fight for a bigger organization then a kidnapping, but the highlight is the actual action. Rather gripping fight sequences, with Byron Gibson as the seedy yet surprisingly sophisticated fight promoter complete with a microphone in skull to announce the matches haha!.

The main character meets some pretty interesting people on his journey to hid from authorities and to train, including a portly and garrulous ex. army male nurse who happens to have geek like computer skills. Plus of course there is a beautiful lady at the gym. Brutal has just enough sub plots and dialogue to keep the story going, I am actually curious to see a second season, to see some more character development and new fighters. Watch for a cameo from Far East Action man Ron Smoorenburg, throwing his size around.

Overall the Brutal Web Series rates a 6.5 out of 10 not too bad, kind of wished for a bit longer episodes but definitely watchable.
