Pleasantly Surprised
20 April 2017 | by jdbrown-00735See all my reviews

My kids and I were fortunate to be involved as extras for a few of the scenes that took place at the wrestling stadium. We knew it wasn't going to be a big budget movie so honestly didn't know what to expect with regards to how Chokeslam would turn out. We were very excited to be at its premiere showing in Regina and can honestly report we really enjoyed the film! The principal acting is fantastic and the story line is solid. Of course, we loved recognizing filming locations and some familiar faces as well. We would highly recommend it to anyone, especially if you are a wrestling fan, but that is not even a necessity. Looking forward to seeing it again!
