A simple self-destructive drifter and tough small-time boxer with a brain injury that could kill him meets and falls for a cute beach carnival owner, Ruby, but also befriends a sleazy friendly criminal, Wesley, who's planing a big score.
The other film is "Point Blank" (1997) In this one he plays a really, strung out cop on the edge. He drinks,smokes, and speaks in monotone. That's not the character, that's Rourke. He's unshaven and mumbles so much you can't hear what he's saying. He has one scene with James Avery (Uncle Phil from the "The Fresh Prince of Bel Air") that's just hilarious. You need subtitles. Just watch it for Rourke's non-performance. If he thought the character "Jack Bracken" was like this, this is an amazing performance begging for repeat viewings. I like Mickey Rourke. He is a excellent actor, with masterpieces like "Year of The Dragon " (1985), "Barfly" (1987), and "Pope of Greenwich Village" (1984). This is just a detour which he will eventually go on the right track.
