Review: 'Chavez: Cage of Glory' misses outside the fights
LATimes - over 3 years
Martial arts champion / filmmaker Hector Echavarria's 'Chavez: Cage of Glory' has convincing fights but is otherwise unconvincing. Sometimes, you just need a little help. That saying certainly holds true for Hector Chavez, the proud but beleaguered mixed martial arts fighter facing a hugely stacked deck in the action melodrama "Chavez: Cage of Glory." More important, it also applies to Hector Echavarria, the film's writer, director and star (he was also an executive producer), who could have used a serious assist with each of his creative roles before striking up his one-man band and going all "Rocky."
