Simple, catfights, dirty fighting, it is okay, transmitted distress. I have killed all of them

Misogyny-porn enters the arena.. or something like that.

The movie starts has a simple premise: two women enter an arena, only one gets out. When they're not fighting they're locked in a cell. To keep them going someone close to them is held hostage.

What follows are countless battles between these women. The reasons only get hinted at and I'm not sure how the tie in with the opening message "35,000 files of missing women, most to be never seen again" should work. The whole thing doesn't play out like a WiP movie as all of this is played serious. The movie succeeds in presenting routhless fights that are certainly hard to stomach for some but it doesn't strive for more. The biggest suprise for me comes in the lineup of actresses for the movie as these are not at all B- or super duper no-name. I would have wished for some more stylized "VS" cards instead of the bland "X vs. Y", that alone could have given it some more personality. The only thing that really bothered me was that some of these kills were needlessly violent for "friends" or women who arn't actually that violent by nature.
