If you find racism as shock, sure. I picked it up without seeing it before and it was a nice surprise.

I don't own the film, but have read some about it. As Faceman states, from what I understand it's a very different type of film than the two you mention. It's shocks come from, for want of a better expression, it's un-PC characters. I know others who own it are on here, so hopefully they'll join in soon to be more specific.

It is a VERY un pc movie. I am not ashamed to say I find it rather humorous to see "Darell" shouting racist obscenities at a black family and them shouting back the same to him and his gang of misfits. It is a revenge flick but just not as violently shocking as the others. Pick it up for a good time.

I still need to pick this one up... the trailer makes it look funny as hell.

Cool movie. Watch it with a mate who has an equally dodgy sense of humour and a good night is guaranteed.

Great flick. More amusing now than when it was released, I assume. But worth the cash if you can find it used.

FIGHT FOR YOUR LIFE tries way too hard to be offensive, and it doesn't even really succeed at that. Like everyone said, it is more laughable than anything. The trailer is seriously the best thing about it. I was disappointed. If you want a movie like LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT, fceurich, then I'd recommend Blue Underground's NIGHT TRAIN MURDERS over this one any day.

It's one of my all time favorites, actually. It's gritty, mean, and downright nasty. Yes, it is funny, but I wouldn't call it "laughable", rhett.

Hell yeah man, I'm with you on that one. Combining that with the stuff MC spoke of are the reasons the movie is so enjoyable to me.

Totally enjoyable trash! The grandma rules! And there is one of the best scenes in expoitation history in this! I don't want to ruin it...but it is a scene involving the little kids' friend.
