The two estranged brothers are soon on a collision course as they progress through the tournament and reignite long-standing problems and broken dreams.

This was such an awesome movie...I think everyone should go see it on the big screen. I'm not one to go see fight movies but I'm glad I went to see this one. I highly recommend it.
