Lou is a world class boxer, but he doesn't get the respect he deserves. He stutters violently unless he's starting sh_t and confronting people with his ideas. When a head injury robs him of his licence to box, Lou gets radical (he DEBUGS HIS BRAIN) in order to transform from violent, homophobic, stuttering shit-starter into an inspirational speaker.

Very inspirational
28 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I haven't watched the movie yet, but can't wait to see it! It seems very interesting and inspirational. It was one of the most interesting trailers I've ever seen: the questions it posed really stopped me and made me think, the unique approach to the sport of boxing as a metaphor for the "battle within"... thank god somebody is hitting another angle with the boxing thing. This film looks so fresh and smart. And the actor is really hot. I especially enjoyed the short clip with the actor from the Rocky movies, really clever. I thought that the topic selected-overcoming adversities and childhood traumas-is timeless, and god knows a lot of people need it. Bring it on.
