Movie recommendation: Unbeatable

UNBEATABLE (PG16)

DURATION: 121Minutes

RATING: 3/5

Former Hong Kong boxing champion Ching Fai (Nick Cheung) flees to Macau to escape nasty debt collectors.

There, he rents a room in the flat of a mentally unstable mother (Mei Ting) and her daughter Dani (Crystal Lee, left with Cheung).

While working as a part-time boxing instructor at a local gym, he meets and trains Siqi (Eddie Peng) for an upcoming mixed martial arts championship.

Both fighters at the centre of the story have different motivations for joining a mixed martial arts championship - and both reasons are completely cliched.

You know where this movie is going, but Cheung and Peng turn in splendid enough performances.
