He's an actor, director, and producer but Californian Dimitri Logothetis – born in Greece – knows his way around martial arts too, holding a black belt in Kempo.
He's turned all of those skills into Jiu Jitsu, a film he shot on Cyprus during COVID-19 and whose premise fits right with the times of aliens, super-beings – meeting people who know how to kick and throw.
Set to be released on video Nov. 20, it's a science fiction fantasy action martial arts movie which the video game and entertainment site IGN described as “Predator meets Mortal Kombat meets National Treasure,” a nod to star Nicolas Cage.
But there's also martial artist supremo Tony Jaa and kick boxer Alan Moussi, who was in Logothetis' Kickboxer: Retaliation movie.
The site FirstShowing.net said it's about an ancient order of Jiu Jitsu fighters facing a vicious race of alien invaders in the form of a fighter named Brax, who they must battle for the survival of Earth and also stars Marie Avgeropoulos.
“This looks absolutely ridiculous … just the right mix of people having a good time on camera,” the site said.
