Storyline

The story of Howard Winstone is a compelling one. Howard became Featherweight Champion of the World at the age of 29 in 1968. What makes Howard's story quite remarkable is that as a young man he lost the tips of three fingers in an industrial accident of his home town of Merthyr Tydfil. The accident was so severe that he was unable to make a fist with his right hand, a devastating blow for anyone, but a blow made all the worse for one who's entire career demands the use of both hands. Howard was known for his right handed power back in his early day's so the day of the fateful accident was essentially the day Howard's boxing career came to an end. Well that's what everyone assumed accept Howard, who completely changed the way he boxed and went on remarkably to become Champion of Britain, Champion of Europe and Champion of the world! The story of Howard Winstone's boxing career alone is a remarkable one, but there was far more to Howard than just his boxing career, in Howard there was ... Written by Anonymous

I question if the other reviewers have seen this film
16 May 2011 | by (South Wales) – See all my reviews

I recently saw this film and I must say I do not share the views of the other reviewers. The acting was consistently bad (with many a pause for actors to remember their lines or when they are supposed to come in) and the writers somehow managed to make real life (interesting) characters boring and one dimensional. I understand a lot of work went into the boxing training for this film and although the final scene's fight did look particularly realistic, I find the Jersey film festival's notion of the boxing scenes surpassing Raging Bull ridiculous. Perhaps they had not actually seen that infinitely superior film, that or they were under the influence of god knows what during the review process.

If you want to see a great boxing movie see Million Dollar Baby or Cinderella Man, or heck even Rocky IV - Stallone's mumbled delivery will seem like Shakespeare when compared to this horrendous waste of a budget.
