Raised by an abusive father, Cash (STEPHEN DORFF) channels his aggression to become a World Champion MMA fighter. Now accustomed to wealth, adulation and global popularity, he faces a new challenge when his second son is born with Williams Syndrome. But this time, rather than stand and fight, he runs. While Cash continues to make his fortune in the ring, his eldest son, Jett (DARREN MANN), becomes the caregiver to his younger brother, Quinn (COLIN MCKENNA). When Jett decides to follow in this father’s footsteps, he faces his past head on, embarking on a course inevitably pitting father versus son in a battle which, no matter the outcome, neither can win.



This release comes with a matted slip cover and features include a Making-of featurette and the Theatrical Trailer.

Shout Factory releases Embattled onto Blu-ray where it’s presented with a 2.40 widescreen aspect ratio and for the most part looks quite good, detail is nicely defined and colors well balanced, albeit on the darker spectrum due to the subject matter.

The disc comes with a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track (as well as a 2.0 option) and has some good depth when it comes to the sporting events while the quieter moments with dialogue comes across with fine clarity.
