Rigged -- Michael is a small time con artist who drifts from one town to another, trying to run his next scan while escaping the fallout from the last. Michael's specialty is setting up illegal underground boxing matches where a pair of bare-knuckled fighters square off and Michael runs off with most of the gate money. While on the road, Michael meets Katherine, and when he sees her fight he's convinced his ship has come in. Katherine is a beautiful woman who also had remarkable talent in the ring and can knock out a man nearly twice her size; with Katherine, Michael is convinced he'll never have to fix a fight again, because no one would believe that she could win a fair fight until they've actually seen her in action. Michael persuades Katherine to take him on as her manager, but while victory is sweet for a while, it doesn't take long for his old enemies to catch up with him, and soon Michael and Katherine have to deal with Clark, an underground fight promoter who has a score to settle with Michael.

You're going to remember Rebecca Neuenswander, 7 February 2010
Author: dave-sturm from Baltimore

I'm not even sure how to pronounce her name, but I will never forget the actress Rebecca Neuenswander in this movie. And I use the word "actress" instead of "martial artist," which apparently she is, because she is absolutely radiant in this movie.

She has a scene late in the movie where she's in a hospital bed. Her face is a mass of bruises, one eye is swollen shut, her lips are split, etc. Her manager comes to her side and she can barely talk, but says, "Want to hear something funny?" She then tells a story about how her parents kicked her out of the house at age 15 when they discovered she was gay that is absolutely heart breaking. Neuenswander doesn't milk it for sobs, but tells the story with a little smile on her face. She's a fighter, all right.

Tough as nails on the outside, tender on the inside. That's Katherine Parker, the role Neuenswander plays. The plot itself is a "Rocky" rehash that is clunky and improbable. There's an over-the-top plot device involving a crowbar. The ending is corny and pat.

Nevermind. See this moving to watch an stunning performance by a young actress. Neuenswander has made no other movie except this. Maybe she has other fish to fry. At least we have "Fight Night."

Neuenswander would be perfect to play Lisbeth Salander in the American remake of "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo." But that role will undoubtedly be one of the most sought-after by young actresses in recent Hollywood history.
