Netflix releases continue to bear fruit. After the expected arrival of the millionaire Red Alert, the platform opted for productions with smaller budgets, which in any case obtained a great return in their first days in the catalog. A clear example of this is Wound, a film themed on the UFC which marked Halle Berry’s directorial debut – she’s also the lead – packed with action and drama.
Over the course of 2 hours and 15 minutes, Bruised (his name in English) addresses mixed martial arts -with UFC stars included-, gender violence and self-improvement with scenes of a lot of blood. The fight choreographies were in charge of Eric Brown (John Wick 3) who undoubtedly does a very good job.
The film had its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival 2020 on September 12, 2020 and a limited one in theaters, but it arrived en masse on November 24, when Netflix uploaded it to its catalog, it is already in the top ten of the most watched titles (currently in Argentina, it is in second position, behind La Reina del Flow).
In this new Netflix movie, Berry plays Jackie Justice, a former UFC star who has been out of competition for more than four years and who lives with her alcoholic boyfriend / manager in a relationship marked by excesses and violence. Thus, one night he stands out in a night of fights without rules and draws the attention of a promoter who is willing to organize a title fight against the reigning champion.
In the midst of this situation, her ex-partner dies and her son, the child she abandoned when he was born, has to take care of her. Never give up, never lower your arms. A mixed martial arts fighter trains for her return while learning to be the mother of the son who has returned to her life ”; says the synopsis of the film. Promising to be an exciting film.
