“As a huge Black Sails fan I saw STREET the movie twice in theaters last fall. I wanted to witness Mark Ryan portraying a different style character than his pirate ‘Gates’. After seeing the movie I was not only captivated by Ryan’s performance as URI, but I also became an MMA fan. The action is so realistic and the storyline captivating. I can’t wait to own a copy in May, stated fan Steven Wolf.
