Red Belt

Fascinating movie about a Ju Jitsu instructor (Chiwetel Ejiofor) whose lives his life by a strict code of honor that comes under attack from every angle. Written and directed by David Mamet. I REALLY enjoyed this movie. The code of honor held by Chwitel was very similar to the system that warrior cultures of the past (hence why I was so fascinated with the movie).

Also star Tim Allen in a highly unusual role…one that features far less comedy than usual. I think he pulls it off nicely.

Ahmed Best was one of the stunt men?!? But he’s not listed on the movie’s IMDB page and his personal website is ancient?!?!
