"Let’s be real here: a Nicolas Cage movie is always a reason for a celebration. Whether it ends up good or bad, you can’t deny that you’ll be entertained. Now, with the imminent release of Jiu Jitsu, starring Cage, Alain Moussi, Tony Jaa, and Frank Grillo, he might just save this year from being a total disaster. You see, Jiu Jitsu isn’t going to win any awards or become a critical success, but you just know that it’s going to put a smile on your face as you watch a whole bunch of martial artists go toe-to-toe in an insane movie. Spearheading it, of course, is Cage, who does what he does best: take any idea and dial it up to 11. --- An over-the-top martial arts film that's here to kick COVID-19 in the nuts. It knows exactly what it is and is completely unashamed to go balls to the wall. There’s something just charming and endearing about the whole thing" - Sergio Pereira / Fortress of Solitude

"Nicolas Cage refuses to make a boring movie. His eternal quest to have audiences say 'What the hell is this?' continues with Jiu Jitsu, a sci-fi action film in which Cage will team-up with a martial artist to fight an alien – an alien that comes to earth every six years, looking for a fight. Does this sound like the best movie ever made? Yes. Yes it does." - Chris Evangelista / Slash Film

"Every six years an ancient order of expert Jiu Jitsu fighters faces a fearsome alien invader in a battle for Earth. For thousands of years, the fighters that protect Earth have played by the rules…until now. When Jake Barnes, a celebrated war hero and master Jiu Jitsu fighter, refuses to face Brax, the indomitable leader of the invaders, the future of humanity hangs in the balance. Injured and suffering from severe amnesia, Jake is captured by a military squad unequipped to fight the merciless intruder who have descended upon the planet. After a brutal alien attack on the military squad, Jake is rescued by Wylie (Nicolas Cage), and a team of fellow Jiu Jitsu fighters who must help him recover his memory and regain his strength in order to band together and defeat Brax in an epic battle that will once again determine the fate of mankind." - Production notes
