  • I don't like reality contest shows, but I make an exception for this one.

    6.0
    I like the premise of this show, in that it stars a real martial arts expert and three dozen real martial arts competitors. The show is interesting because it showcases a variety of different martial arts styles and disciplines. The viewer can compare and contrast the strategies, strengths and weaknesses of the various martial arts disciplines as they are employed against one another. I didn't like all of the nonmartial tasks, but I could see the point of most of them. I liked the first several episodes with the first group of competitors better than the ones with the second group, because the producers seemed to include more annoying "personal moment" whining sessions with individual cast members emoting about the unfairnesses they perceived with the competition. It was neat to bring together for competition those who made the cut from both groups.moreless
  • Finally a reality show worth watching!

    Reality TV has become dull and boring with the relentless sequals of Survivor, Big Brother, and Amazing Race that have no point whatsoever and if it did in the begining it is long lost. With Final Fu, we get to see REAL martial artists compete in a tournament run by a TRUE master of martial arts Ernie Reyes Jr. And what makes this show work is the challenges actually test the martial artists on how they perform as well as having them fight. The tournaments uniqueness makes it difficult to miss each episode. I cant see this show getting old any time soon and I hope Final Fu gets picked up for another season!moreless

    8.5
    i like it i dont get why people think its a bad show. I think is entartaining to watch, but its not the type of show that i have to watch. BUt its entertainig to see all those people embarrase themselves on tv. ITs good tv. its better than other shows that mtv has, so i like. More people should give it a chance and not judge it. I think its the first show of its class. I wanted to see a show like this for a longtime. It ok but i dosnt match up to my expectations. Final Fu is a good showmoreless
  • A horrible show. Don't waste your time.

    1.0
    The Final Fu is an embarrassment to martial arts. The challenges are not relevant. And the point sparring is one of the stupidest and ineffective ways to see who is a better fighter. Head shots are not even allowed. And why are the fighters rewarded when the land a blow that has no force on it? If these fighters got into a street fight and fought the way they do on this show, they would be knocked out in 10 seconds. The only entertaining thing about this show is watching Ernie Reyes Jr. running around like a chicken with its head cut off during the point sparring. Anyone who has seen true mma or the ufc should realize that it is the only effective style of martial arts. Do not give this show ratings. Watch something else.moreless
  • Final Foolishness.

    2.6
    True combat is only seen in true combat arts like Judo and Jujitsu these days. Final Fu is the typical Americanized "Billy Blanks" Aerobics workout that means and does nothing in the real world situations. The fact that the arts were a means of survival in the ancient times when hand-to-hand combat was a real probability and has now been reduced to "no striking in the face or below the knees" point system is a farce and a tragedy for real martial artists out there.



    The very fact that men are so called "fighting" women in this show proves the weakening of the true art and true combat that it was born from so that physically weaker people can even hope to compete with physically superior ones. Taking away points for face contact and "excessive force" is simple way to help those who could not survive in a real world, life or death situation, compete and excel in this sport of tag now publicized as martial arts.



    If MTV and Ernie Reyes dont want women getting hurt then dont allow them to compete with men. The guys are already at a disadvatage because they are afraid to use full force which also effects their speed in kicks and punches, ontop of that i wish i had a dime for everytime a girl walked into a solid foot or fist of the male she was fighting and then got "whiplashed" from it, walked off the mat in pain only to have Little Ernie take away points and even disqualify the male "fighter" for what he calls "excessive force." They call that "fighting"...what a joke.



    I would pay money to see any of the competitors to include "Little Ernie" step into the UFC octagon or in a real full contact match and even survive 10 seconds with a real fighter.
