Travis Aaron Wade (Benny Riley) broke both his finger and nose during the final boxing scene of the film. The director Adam Kane had to rush Travis to the emergency room but the actor insisted that it was a wrap before they left. See more »
I saw this short film, and it had some great production values. This is a gritty story of a struggling boxer and his overbearing father, who took part in a fixed fight killing his career. Now his son is a boxer, and faces the same decision in his life. Will his father give him the fix?
What strikes me as interesting was that, even though it's a familiar story, the production values were incredible as it felt like a major feature. The story is pretty much what you expect it to be-- they are breaking no new ground here.
Some of the performances where really good. Travis Aaron Wade is a future star -- what a powerful performance. He has this soft raspy voice that is rough, yet gentle. Robert Patric looks as crusty as ever.
This is a great introduction for the director. Must have been a really big budget for a short film.
