I passed on picking this up on VHS about 3-4 years back and I'm kicking myself now as I can't find a copy anywhere.
Does anyone know if there are plans to release Arena on DVD?

I just watched this movie about an hour ago.  It was a little hoke, but I liked it.  I remember seeing it a long time ago.  It has not gotten worse nor better.  Just a movie that you sit down to watch when there is nothing else to do.  I was hoping for a cage match between Quinn and Jade. I would pay to see that.  The grasshopper opponent that Armstrong fault resembled one of the creatures from the Guyver.  I was waiting for the Guyver to jump into the ring.   BounceGiggle  Good review Andrew.   Cheers

"Being head-butted by someone who is part bull sucks." - LOL  BounceGiggle Too funny.

I was racking my brain for the name of this movie so I could perhaps rent it from Netflix but couldn't think of it.  I browsed through every single Netflix offering under the Sci-Fi genre but didn't see anything that rang a bell.  I then typed in some key words into Google like "movie where fighters in space have handicaps" and the first search return was a Yahoo! Question & Answer thing (you know what I'm talking about) and the "asker" described the movie and someone else nailed it right on the head.  As soon as I read the title Arena, I knew it was right.

This movie worked somehow and I remember seeing it on HBO or something way back when.  I think its ripe for a remake.  What do you think?   Cheers

This is streaming on demand at Netflix. Don't know if they have it on disc.

I don't believe it's out on DVD.

It had been a while since I saw this B-movie gem but I watched it yesterday on Netflix. For a B-movie it isn't too bad. I thought it was entertaining and not in the same way I find "Space Mutiny" entertaining.

Ugh, I certainly hope not. Leave it alone, it's fine. Still waiting for that damn DVD though.  Lookingup

I liked this - the scene I liked the most was the first battle where the monster shakes his head to get rid of the dizziness.  TeddyR TeddyR

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
