激戰 (Unbeatable) (Blu-ray release 2013-12-6) is a Hong Kong movie about a disgraced former boxing champion teaching a new guy to compete in MMA in Macau.  At first I thought it is merely a clone of Rocky, but I was wrong.  This movie successfully integrates exciting fight scenes (even for me who has absolutely no interest in MMA fights), drama, families, redemption, good pacing and balance among three plotlines into a flawless package, to become one of best Hong Kong movies in 2013.
