As I sat down to watch Bren Foster’s directorial debut, Life After Fighting, I was prepared for an action-packed ride. What I got was so much more. This film is a masterclass in blending devastating martial arts action with heavy human drama, and it left me breathless.

Foster brings the heat in Life After Fighting

Foster’s years of martial arts training and experience in action cinema shine through in every frame of this film. The action design is some of the most lethal and punishing I’ve seen in a long time, and it’s clear that Foster is a true master of his craft.

As retired martial arts world champion Alex Faulkner, Foster brings a depth and nuance to the character that’s hard to find in most action films. When two of his students disappear, Faulkner is drawn back into the fight of his life against an international child trafficking operation.
