Excellent! I like it better than Saturday Night Fever, Diner, the Outsiders, or any other movie I can think of in that genre. The acting from all of the actors was excellent, except for maybe the girlfriend. I watched it dubbed in Mandarin and the woman who did her voice-over sounded like a Hello Kitty or something. I thought the psychological development of the characters made so much sense. I liked the scene where the camera takes the perspective of a small boy. The performances from the older characters, especially the grandmother's were great. Wow!
Despite similarities to movies like Rocky, this doesn't play out the same way.
