Just a movie I located by accident, worth a blind buy or not?

I love the film, it was a day one purchase. I would rent it first just in case.

It is a GREAT film, but it won't be to everybodies liking. The action junkies will be disappointed, but those wanting a thoughtful intelligent film will be rewarded.

I think it is ALMOST brilliant, but falls just short. A great idea and a very worthwhile film.

Didn't care for it but that is just my opinion. BUT I don't see any advantage to blind buying anything and rental is always my recommendation. But this is again just my opinion!

I enjoyed the film very much. It is very much a drama about a martial arts instructor, not an action film.

If you are a fan of David Mamet's other movies, then you will most likely dig Redbelt. If you're not already familiar with Mamet, then I would suggest giving it a rent first.

I *cough* downloaded this and enjoyed it.

I recently bought the blu-ray but haven't watched it yet but I am guessing the quality will be good enough for the type of film it is.

If you like a good story with a wonderful character then you would enjoy this.

A bit boring for some.

Great character study. I enjoyed it immensely. I don't own it, though...I'm just not sure I'd give it much replay.

This film was excellent! One of the first Blu's I picked up after renting it. But I am also a huge MMA fan so this added to my feelings towards it, and of course throwing Randy Couture a UFC Legend into the movie didn't hurt either, haha.

Saw Redbelt for the first time a while back, and truly enjoyed the film. Superb. I've never been a T. Allen fan & never liked HI, but he's quite good in a dramatic role here, which is surprising (to me, at least).

I understand the comparison to The Spanish Prisoner, though Redbelt definitely takes a different approach to the subject of being conned...Not sure which film I like best, but I'll have to watch both again at some point, due to the storylines being somewhat convoluted/complicated.

I liked how the instruction that Terry was giving in the beginning of the film was something he himself put into practice at the film's climax - well-done.

It was interesting to me that, in the very beginning when the Emily Mortimer character walks in to the dojo,
[Show spoiler]Mike Terry & Joe are intent on taking off her coat. I understand she came in from the rain & they're trying to make her comfortable - however, she was obviously agitated/nervous & if I had been them, would have definitely given her some space instead of crowding her. I completely understand they were trying to calm her down, but obviously they went about it the wrong way. This led to her accident that set off the unfortunate chain of events. Granted, if she hadn't done this there wouldn't have been a film. Note that I can easily see an event like this occuring, but I do find it interesting that the two characters weren't intuitive enough to realize they shouldn't get too close to her, considering her state of mind at that point...


Also interesting is that
[Show spoiler]though her initial accidental action did indeed set off the chain of events, that seems the only thing that wasn't planned by those who conned both Mike Terry & Joe.

That scene also shows that sometimes good intentions are misplaced in real life. Sad, but true.
