'Sangkar' - a movie co-produced by four leading entertainment partners in Malaysia; Primeworks Studios, Astro Shaw, Infinitus Gold, and mm2 Entertainment - tells the story of the story of two MMA fighters, Adam and Johan, who get into a fight outside the ring, resulting in Johan getting seriously injured.
Filled with guilt, Adam attempts to redeem himself by resorting to underground fights for monetary gains, which he chooses to share with Johan's family.
On the other hand, Johan faces his own struggles and continues to fight for his health for the sake of his family.
The movie boasts an all-star cast of Zul Ariffin, Remy Ishak and Mira Filzah, as well as several pro MMA fighters such as James “Sledgehammer” McSweeney, Saiful Merican and Peter Hugh Davis.
With the big names attached to the film, plus the fact that 'Sangkar' is Malaysia's first ever MMA film, it's no doubt that expectations are high for the movie.
'Sangkar' is now showing in cinemas nationwide, so if you haven't seen it yet, what are you waiting for?
Go grab some buddies and watch two very fit men with serious abs kick some serious butts.
