Storyline

When a robbery goes awry, the bandits all end up in a puddle of blood and only one lives and goes to jail for five years. Upon his release, the girlfriend wants her new boyfriend to kill him. Only trouble is the boyfriend knows that the fault was not the ex-con's and can't bring himself to do the town. Meanwhile, the ex-con tries to turn his life around by becoming a boxer and training under a former heavyweight contender. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

I actually liked this movie
16 September 2006 | by (Austin) – See all my reviews

This movie is pretty well done--I didn't think it would be good, but I was pleasantly surprised. It has a slow, steady pace, in which we continually learn more about the characters and their situations. As it unravels it almost hypnotizes you. This probably has a lot to do with the EXCELLENT soundtrack, which is beautiful and subtle.

The casting was pretty good. The acting was pretty decent, too. The script, so-so. I'd say it's the sort of movie to watch when you're in the mood to be alone and contemplative, but when you're feeling generous enough to forgive its shortcomings.

Why is there a 10-line minimum for these comments? I don't really know what else to say about it. I really like the song that plays during the end credits.
