If there is a station that supplies its viewers with proper genre goods on a weekly basis, then it must be Tele 5. The fact that these are mostly direct-to-DVD actioners is not a bad thing. On the contrary: Often these are works that even film lovers didn’t always have on their screens. Whether these are always worthwhile is another matter.
With “ Knuckledust ”, an action thriller is celebrating its free TV premiere today on Tele 5 (from 10 p.m.), which basically sounds quite interesting. Because not only is the underground fight setting remotely reminiscent of David Fincher’s «Fight Club». The premise of a bloody massacre that poses a lot of puzzles for the police also offers potential for a thoroughly exciting story. With an IMDB rating of 4.7 out of 10 stars and a critics’ average of 57% on Rotten Tomatoes , the recommendation for «Knuckledust» is rather cautious at this point.
If you don’t make it to the TV broadcast of «Knuckledust» tonight or would rather see the action thriller without commercial breaks and in the original sound, you can easily order the film on Blu-ray and DVD via Amazon.

That’s what «Knuckledust» is about
The riot police are stunned when they storm elite underground fight club Knuckledust. Here the investigators can expect not only a massive arsenal of weapons and tons of cocaine, but also countless corpses that have been spread across the so-called seven levels of hell. Including professional fighters, assassins and thugs.
Only one battered man survives, though he’s barely breathing: Hard Eight ( Moe Dunford ). Chief Inspector Katherine Keaton ( Kate Dickie ) and her team now have ninety minutes to question Hard Eight and find out if the muscular man is the sole survivor or a mass murderer…
