What makes a man, a man ?
1 August 2006 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

The story of Caleb (the protagonist of the movie) is the story of every decent man who reads the newspaper or watches the TV and sees all the atrocities which are happening around. But while most of us just shake our heads in frustration since there is nothing we can do about it, Caleb is different.

Caleb is a boxing champion, married to a beautiful wife, getting ready for the match of his life. But the real fight is on the streets, where fathers abuse their children, where the strong take on the weak. Caleb can't stand on the side and just watch those things without taking action. At night, he goes out to be the vigilante we all need. Not in a Batman style of way but in a true, human effort to try and change the world with the power of his fists.

But alas, this modern film-noir mixed with Greek tragedy becomes complicated as strong morale questions are raised.

A perfect 10 of acting, directing and production makes this movie a classic beauty which you probably haven't seen yet.
