A Pair of Short Films Featuring a Man Constantly Repeating a Single Day Until He Wins an Elaborate Fight

Rope a Dope 2 – Groundhog Day Battle” is an elaborate fight-based action short film by Eric Jacobus. The film is focused on the character of “The Dope” who has to relive the same day until he successfully defeats his villain in a fight. It is the sequel to the 2013 short film “Rope a Dope – Wake, Fight, Repeat” which followed the same premise, and the sequel picks up the morning after the first film.

Both films feature incredible fight choreography and stunt work. Where the sequels differs is that the villain must now also repeat the same day, leading to rapid escalation of their battle.
