Beat Beat Revelation

The FP

Editor’s Note: Since The FP is hitting theaters this weekend, we’re bringing back Brian Salisbury’s very enthusiastic review from SXSW 2011. The FP opens in limited release March 16, and will be available to create your own screening nationwide through Tugg.com. For more information on where and when it can be seen, check out Drafthouse Films. Ah snap! You just stepped into The FP! This is the place where pride is measured by street cred and scores are settled in the ultimate competition: The Revelation. When the greatest competitors around, the guys from the 248, decide to accept the challenge of those dastardly 245’ers, everyone expects the 248 to arise victorious. The champion of the 248, BTRO (Brandon Barrera), arrives ready for battle and fully prepared to take down the evil leader of the 245: L Dubba E (Lee Valmassy). He brings along his brother, and protégée, JTRO (Jason Trost) to take down another 245 soldier in an opening bout; which he does with ease. But in a nasty turn of events, L Dubba E beats BTRO so savagely in the tournament that he ends up dead. With his hero slain, JTRO vows never to compete again and leaves the FP. Months later, an old friend catches up with JTRO and beseeches him to return home; enlightening him on the sad state of affairs in the FP since JTRO’s retreat. Begrudgingly, JTRO returns to the FP and tries to rebuild his life piece by piece.
