The picture's plot was reminiscent of Rouben Mamoulian's 1939 film of Clifford Odets's play Golden Boy (1939) which had a storyline where despite musical talent the central character wanted to be a boxer.

Dennis Quaid did make the movie. The fight scenes were good, a few a little unbelievable, but overall was enjoyable. The supporting cast was also very good. It was somewhat of a fairy tale script. Keep this in mind when watching it if you haven't seen it yet. The direction lacked some punch, the script a little weak, but I still enjoyed seeing it, again and again.
