Almost made up story of Charles "Kid" McCoy
27 October 2008 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

This movie starts as a biopic and looks a little bit as "Ask the Dust". Then turns out in a bad soap opera type direction with all of the clichés of the American Dream. The poor guy beaten by the father who searches for Revenge of Life and Glory in the Boxing Matches. Robert Vaughin dressed as the Italian mask Toto sees him and takes him to the top and success.The first hour is very slow-paced and boring. Then the champion and his band go to Africa for a trip for the last 40 minutes and the story gets a little bit funnier.Don't want to tell you the ending. But I checked out the story of Charles "Kid" McCoy and none of that was portrayed in this movie. Recommended for die hard fans of boxing. The boxing matches are well shot.
