I’d suggest to all filmmakers to make films that help to increase diversity while working to bring people together; Films that showcase the strength of the American Dream. Often many people here in the states take too many things for granted, however, others that are looking in from the outside are able to see the potential the U.S. has. Let’s continue to share that dream with the world.
A fictional sequel to an semi-autobiographical original, American Fighter is an interesting proposition for a film and, at least in cinematic terms, shares a lot in common with the classic martial arts film Bloodsport – both deal with underground fighting and both have a connection to the real-life tales of their characters. In this case George Kosturos plays the alter-ego of producer Ali Afshar – whose story of moving from Iran to America and fitting in by becoming a top-class athlete was told in the 2016 film American Wrestler.
