Ray 'Harley' Davidson is a hustler. With flash clothes and a fast mouth, Harley lives life in the fast lane. With his passion for all things gambling, money runs like water through Harley's hands and as quickly as he makes a killing he takes a beating, normally at the poker table. Nominally an illegal prize-fight manager, Harley hasn't produced a live one in months, until Charles Buchinsky literally wanders into his life. Charles Buchinsky, street fighter extraordinaire. He's from out of town looking for a fight and the chance to tie up a few loose ends. Keeps himself to himself, lets his fists do the talking and his word is his bond. Victor Maitland, top illegal fight promoter and porn baron. Hates losing and loves the prestige of managing the best hitter in town. Harley dreams of bringing Maitland down and after seeing Buchinsky at work, engineers a fragile partnership. The duo soon becomes a hot ticket, Charles knocking out all-comers, Harley cleaning up the side-bets. Old habits ... Written by Joe Long

Never saw it coming....
20 July 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Went to the premiere last night and was very pleasantly surprised.

"Sucker Punch" is gritty, witty and well played throughout. The fight scenes bring a brutal realism, and as one character says, "This ain't one of those plastic gangster films"! Danny John Jules gives a ringmaster's performance, nicely offset by Gordon's contemplative anti-hero, Jimmy Kent's comic sidekick, and Ian Freeman's great debut as the chief "Bad Guy".

Well done to Gordon, Danny, Ian, Joe, Maurice et al, and you would never guess this is Malcolm Martin's directorial debut. I hope he manages to get more of his scripts and ideas on screen soon! It put the cracker on my cheese!
