naff boxing movie...Rocky fans steer clear
13 November 2002 | by (Todmorden, England) – See all my reviews

Title Shot is extremely bad. It looks cheap and amateurish and has a confusing script, which seems just about impossible for a boxing movie, since the sport itself is so primitive and straightforward. Even worse, there are even a couple of familiar faces in it, which indicates that it isn't just a quick and crap drive-in kind of flick, but a major production that went sadly awry. The plot involves corruption at a heavyweight bout in Canada, but the fight takes place in a near deserted and rather cold looking hall, not entirely dissimilar to a church hall. There's also something about fixed betting, and one character who believes that by getting a computer to figure out all sorts of statistics, it is possible to predict the outcome of sporting contests. I loathed this movie. It was a real waste of time and I'd like to save anyone else the time of having to sit through it and tolerate it's nonsensnsical storyline and dismal performances.
