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

call it "Female Rocky"
26 April 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Definitely better than 5.5 it has got now. definitely not among the finest action / sports movies ever made, but in summary i called it "Female Rocky" well watch it and decide whether i am wrong or not.

It has got all a catchy story, whole lot of drama and pretty good action sequences but above all it has got good acting performances and screenplay which is definitely missing in recent action movies. performance of Chad Ortis and Rebecca Neuenswander is mind blowing and it is the face expressions that made it that good.

Also hats off to Jonathan Dillon the director for completely capturing the situations perfectly and to Ian Shorr the writer for adding situational drama in the movie, it ended as an romantic movie after being a complete action drama but still no points should be deducted for that as it made the end feel good.

summary of all above mentioned points it is 8/10 movie and one should not miss it. definitely watchable once or more
