Storyline

Michael Dublin is a full-time con man working the underground boxing circuit. A lonely drifter on the run from a past best forgotten, he moves from one scam to another, leaving a trail of enemies in his wake. Dublin invents his best scam yet when he meets Katherine Paker, a female fighter with the skills to take down a man twice her size. In a scheme Dublin calls "fight-rigging, in reverse", the two hit the road working fights in seedy basement bars, abandoned warehouses, and backwoods county fairs. But Dublin's shady past catches up with them and suddenly the stakes are higher - and more dangerous - than they'd ever imagined. Written by anonymous

An great emotionally triggering story.
14 December 2010 | by See all my reviews

I was fortunate enough to stumble upon Fight Night or "Rigged" as I was going through the movie channels reading different summaries of all the movies coming on that night. I'm interested in drama and crime movies and this was perfect. A great story of two lost souls that find each other and team together and as the movie goes on, you find the true in depth characters they both are. Chad Ortis plays the role of an underground hustler who tries to run illegal sporting events where he always tries to fix the outcome. Rebecca Neuenswander is one of plays one of the best roles I have seen played in a few years. She is an incredible fighter who goes around and easily defeats all of her opponents in this underground fight circuit. Ortis is obviously pleased with the outcome due to her being a huge underdog in every fight. One great aspect of the movie is the mood Director Jonathan Dillon adds. It is quite a dark mood with great "Friday Night Lights" type music playing throughout the movie which contributes to the viewers emotional attachment to the the movie especially, but also the Ortis and Neunswander. Another great aspect of this movie was it seems as the movies comes to close to a close that it is a predictable ending. That is not at all the case in this film. The ending is without a doubt fabulous. If you are looking for a great movie with an incredible story of greed, love, and dreams, I highly suggest watching this film.
