The movie is based on a comic of the same, which was co-written by the film’s director, Dimitri Logothetis.

“A movie named Jiu Jitsu starring Nic Cage? Say less,” one fan joked.


“I just watched Jiu Jitsu, the movie with Nic Cage, and… wow. That was a thing that happened,” someone else wrote.


“And now I’m going to watch my boy Nic Cage in Jiu Jitsu,” an excited fan tweeted. “This is [no] way for a full-grown man to live. But I think I’m crushing it.”

“New Nic Cage movie called Jiu Jitsu? You better believe I’m watching that nonsense,” somebody else said.


Jiu Jitsu only got a 2.9 on IMDb but it is such stupid fun. Excessive choreography. Crappy effects. Turbo space ninjas. Nic Cage the jiu-jitsu master. Doom-esque first-person sequence.
