About fifteen years ago back when VHS tapes used a thing and long after being a viewer to the hit TV show, Acapulco H.E.A.T., I found myself relieved with Isaac Florentine's direct-to-video action flick, U.S. Seals 2: The Ultimate Force, which brought actor Michael Worth back to my own attention as a fan. He's since moved on to directing with films like War Wolves and Killing Cupid, and now with the aid of CNC Movie Factory, his newest effort, The Butterfly Guard, is poised for completion soon, and while it may not be too knee-deep into the action variety, Worth samples us a seemingly worthy protagonist with a story perfect for the kind of contemplative drama being aimed at here.
Two fighters on opposite ends of the world find their lives will soon cross in the MMA cage. Tyler has spent a life of sacrifice for the sport and now must face the lives he left behind as he takes a final fight. His opponent Brad is the face of the new guard of fighters. Only this face masks another side of the man that is much more vulnerable than the fighter that shows up in the cage.Check out the trailer and keep an eye out for more news ahead.
