Alternate artwork without Dolph



This sounds about right. Distributors should sell this film as what it is rather than what it's not. Doubt Dolph is going to have more than 5 minutes in this one...

It seems, and I may be wrong, that the music consists of licensed cues from composer Mark Tschanz replacing a previously composed score by Juan Carlos Rodriguez...

EDIT:
It's possible they continued to edit the film after the Cannes Film Market screening last May.

From Felix of the CHUD forum B Movie Thread who lives in Singapore:
By the way, i saw FEMALE FIGHT CLUB with Dolph yesterday.

Amy Johnston, the star of the film is who i want to talk about here. She has an extensive martial arts background and was the stunt double for ScarJo in Captain America: Civil War.

The film itself has very low production values. But Johnston (i feel) has the real charisma and martial skill that could make her the next Action Star if someone could give her the proper vehicle.

She'll be in this movie LADY BLOODFIGHT next.
Dolph was his old reliable self in FEMALE FIGHT CLUB. The production values are really on the low side though. Especially that final scene. The landscape effect was just terrible.
Dolph has 10-15 mins of screen time. He has one large fight scene.

Interview: Folake Olowofoyeku From Death Race 2050, Female Fight Club
http://legionofleia.com/2017/01/intervi ... ight-club/
Legion of Leia: Tell us about your experience on Female Fight Club. Tell us about your role and what sort of training you went through.

Folake Olowofoyeku: Female Fight Club is a female empowering film about loyalty and family. I play Winter, who is this intimidating looking female fighter but turns out to be just a jokester and very much the class clown. She is fiercely loyal but her humor and enthusiasm is most appreciated in this dark and somber world. I was already training in Krav Maga before I began working on this, so we just added on some fight choreography to prepare for my fight scenes.

The DP of DON'T KILL IT, Jan-Michael Losada, shot some second unit footage for FFC.

The movie looks overall pretty good and rather "indie" and artsy more than cheesy.

Beyond the exploitive aspect of the premise (probably its main weakness), the proposal of the film is rather gritty, dramatic, and even bone-crunching at times. There are some interesting ideas and visuals at times, and there are moments when you almost think of Nicolas Winding Refn inspirations like DRIVE. I don't want to rise expectations too high with this statement, it's not that good, it's not DRIVE, still feels exploitive, and it's not a film I'll enjoy to watch again and again but from where it comes and compared to a cheesy, politically correct and tame DTV that's a good point.

Amy Johnston also helps, she has some kind of charisma and is fairly likeable in her role and presence, she's not just a stuntwoman/fighter trying to act, and Dolph despite his limited presence has an interesting role for him, one very good acting breakthrough and a fairly good fight scene.
