Directed by and starring Eduardo Castrillo, Worth is “a love letter to Muay Thai Kickboxing,” according to the filmmakers. It tells the story of Ricky, a top contender who meets and falls in love with a paralegal named Danielle. He has a championship match. She has a big court case. They fall for one another.
This has a star-studded cast, with Tony Todd (Candyman!), Clifton Powell (Pinky from the Friday movies) and Miguel A.Nunez Jr. (Spider from Return of the Living Dead and Juwanana Man himself!).
Once Danielle gets put into a coma when one of the defendants in her cases runs her over, Ricky has to fight for her care and learn to do whatever it takes. That’s the main story of this film, which is more about the relationships of the leads than actual fighting, despite how the movie has been marketed.
I really enjoyed the ending of this film. It achieves an elegance and mood that I thought that it would not be able to reach and it went past my expectations. While the pace of the rest of the film is slow, the last ten minutes make up for it.
You can watch this movie on Amazon Prime.
