Fantastic movie
14 October 2004 | by See all my reviews

This movie was great. I was expecting something totally different, but after the first few minutes, it had me. It felt like an old movie - like from the 30's or 40's or something, and I actually forgot that it was in color like halfway through the movie, but then realized again, later, when my girlfriend said something, that it was actually in color.

But yeah, it tripped me out. My girlfriend and I sat there talking about the movie and themes in the movie for the rest of the night after it was over. This is actually a movie that will make you consider you're beliefs and actions and responsibilities in life.

If you're wanting some hardcore, bang-em up boxing movie, this isn't it. I mean, the boxing scenes were kick-ass, but it's a pretty slow paced movie. The acting was phenomenal as well. I really like that lawyer, and Caleb, the boxer, was awesome, and that chick, his wife was hot as hell. I felt so let down when he threw the shirt over the camera in that one scene - that was pretty cool by the way.

Anyway, this movie is fantastic! Congratulations to Caleb and everyone else. You were doing the right thing by the way, man! Those kids needed you - I wish I could have been there for you, man!
