Although Having Many Clichés, a Good Drama Highly Recommended for Fans of Boxing
Arturo Orteha (Jimmy Smits) is a frustrated retired boxer, cheated by his manager in a important point of his career. His three sons are also boxers, and Arturo is their couch since they were children. He is very tough and has many troubles with their sons, but in the end, the story is very predictable. I myself am not fan of boxing, but I recognize that this movie is not bad. The cast, leaded by Jimmy Smits, has a great performance. The choreography of the fights is great. One problem is that the character of Jimmy Smits is selfish and not charismatic. The story has many clichés, but I believe that fans of boxing will like it. My vote is seven.
