The DVD will be available with both widescreen and full screen on the same disc for a suggested retail price of $19.98 U.S./$25.98 Canada.

Dominique Vandenberg has been a world champion martial artist, a French Foreign Legion Paratrooper, an assassin, and a modern Samurai. He's fought in blood sport contests in the sewers of Thailand, trained in the secret gyms of Japan, gone to war in Africa with the Legion, and studied at the feet of fighting masters and holy men from around the world. Born in Belgium, Vandenberg got his big break in motion pictures with a supporting role on the blockbuster film Mortal Kombat after he was spotted training with Benny "The Jet" Urquidez at his gym in North Hollywood. His next big break came when he was hired as the fight choreographer for Gangs of New York, training Leonardo DiCaprio and playing a key role as Tom, one of the "Dead Rabbits Gang." Vandenberg lives in Los Angeles where he works as an actor and motion picture fight coordinator.
In a Mexican hotbed of crime and violence, bets are placed on a brutal man-against-man sport called "pit fighting". The local champion, Jack, is a mystery man with no memory of his prior life, and the only clue he has is a tattoo on his chest. When he meets shadowy characters who claim to have known him before, Jack slowly begins to realize that he was once a cruel pawn of the underworld. The kick-ass action explodes as Jack undertakes a dangerous search for his former criminal bosses in a desperate quest for redemption.
